Photography Walking Tour at Amerind with Gary Smith
Saturday, January 21, 2023, 10:00 am-12:00 pm
Enjoy an easy walking exploration of the unusual landscape which surrounds Amerind. Be prepared for close-up encounters with a diversity of shapes, textures, and colors. There will be many opportunities to create compelling images. To gain an understanding of creating better images, simple image composition strategies will be discussed.
Participants must bring their camera or cell phone and have a basic knowledge of how to use their device for photography. You should be prepared to walk one-two miles over uneven ground at a moderate pace. Please wear long pants to protect your legs from prickly plants, sturdy walking shoes or boots, and be prepared with water, sunscreen, and a hat. Since the tour will conclude at lunchtime, participants are encouraged to bring a sack lunch to enjoy in the picnic area after the program.
Gary Smith is a lifelong resident of Cochise County who happens to be an avid photographer. “I try to create images by finding characters in nature to tell a story. Through the lens, these characters become my visual expression.” He can be seen photographing many of our events on behalf of the Amerind.
The price is $20 per person. The tour will be limited to 20 guests, with 8 spaces available to Amerind members at no cost. Space is limited and is on a first-come-first-served basis for both paid and free slots. Amerind members must call Annie Larkin at 520-686-1336 to reserve their free space.
