Without a thorough grounding in fundamental technique, the potential of our photography will always be limited. Wimberley’s Top-Ten Tips are essential knowledge for all photographers, whether using film or digital equipment, or any level of experience.
This is a rare opportunity to learn the secrets of a master of contemporary photography about whose work the Santa Cruz Weekly wrote “There is something more than technique, though, that
separates Wimberley’s work from the realm of the ordinary. His photos possess a transcendental quality.
John Wimberley was born in Bermuda during 1945, and currently lives in southern Oregon. He began photographing in 1966 while serving in the US Navy.
In reviewing his first one-man show in 1973, Artweek wrote: “The first thing that one is made aware of is that the photographer, John Wimberley, is a craftsman of the highest order. His prints are not merely technically correct, but wonderfully alive.” John became a sought-after expert in black and white film development.
In 1983 John had the first of two, two-man exhibitions with Ansel Adams. Now, with more than 44 years in photography, John’s critically acclaimed work has been honored with more than 70 major exhibitions, and is represented in more than 500 public and private collections. As The Herald of Monterey, California recently wrote: “Wimberley’s undisputed technical mastery is but the springboard for visual poetry of spiritual realms. What remains unnoticed by most, as seen through Wimberley’s eyes, becomes a powerful, mysterious invitation.”
