Camera club brings in top photographer

International award-winning photographer and author Steve Simon is the focus of a two-hour talk

International award-winning photographer and author Steve Simon is the focus of a two-hour talk in Victoria later this month.

Victoria Camera Club and Kerrisdale Cameras are hosting An Evening with Steve Simon – The Traveling Photographer: Making Your Best Work.

The Aug. 27 event runs from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Norway House, 1110 Hillside Ave.

In his best-selling and critically-acclaimed book, The Passionate Photographer: 10 Steps Toward Becoming Great, Simon said finding a photo story or theme a photographer feels passionate about will help him to the next level in their photography.

Simon provides an overview of his working philosophy and deconstructs the elements that make good photographers great.

“We are excited to bring this event to Victoria and to offer this unique opportunity from a Canadian-born photographer and author of international renown,” said Lois Burton, Victoria Camera Club president.

“Steve’s presentation combines humor and poignancy and this lively and informative presentation is guaranteed to inspire photo enthusiasts of all levels to take their photography to a new level.”
