    I am honored to have been invited to be a part of the Adobe Distinguished Lecture Series. I will be presenting a brand new lecture Ansel Adams: An Inspiration on Thursday, June 24 at 4:00 pm at Adobe’s Park Auditorium at their headquarters in San Jose. The lecture is free and open to the public.

    This lecture will focus primarily on Ansel’s photography, and explore the nuances of his renowned photographic vision. During this audio-visual presentation Ansel’s images will be transformed on the screen from the negative to the final print - progressing through various phases in the evolution of a finely crafted expressive print. In addition, I will be showing a number of my own images and discussing the inspiration and influence that Ansel has had on my photography, as well as his effect on other photographers and photography in general.

    Directions to the facility can be found here. A book signing will follow the lecture, for those that are interested. I look forward to seeing some APUG members at this event.

    Hi John,

    This sounds like a wonderful opportunity and I really wish that I could be there. Is there any arrangement being made to record this presentation ? The topics you described are important to me, enough so that I would even be willing, I would be more than happy, to pay for a DVD or something similar of a presentation like this.

    Sounds fantastic John. I have thoroughly enjoyed your lectures before, you have a great way of capturing an audience. I am also very glad to see some film photography represented in the adobe lecture line up.

    Excellent lecture John! I'm glad that I caught your post here, otherwise I would not have known about it.

    Aris -- thanks for the kind words I appreciate them. It was a great audience, and I had a wonderful time presenting the lecture, and visiting with attendees following the talk.
