Stephen Johnson Digital Workshops

Landscape photographer Stephen Johnson has posted the fall and early 2006 workshop schedule on his web site. The schedule includes both studio and field workshops on subject ranging from fine art digital printing, fundamentals of digital photography, as well as a variety of landscape locations such as Yosemite, San Mateo and Death Valley.

Stephen Johnson is a photographer, designer and teacher. His photography explores the concerns of a landscape artist working in an increasingly industrialized world. His work has also concentrated on refining the new tools of digital photography and empowering individual artists to use these tools to express their ideas.

Internationally recognized as a digital photography “pioneer,” Johnson’s photographs have been exhibited, published and collected in Europe, the US and Japan. His photographs are part of the permanent collections of many institutions including the Oakland Museum, the Getty, the City of New York, and the National Park Service. Corporate collections include Apple, Minolta, and the Packard Foundation.

He has taught for the Center for Creative Imaging in Camden Maine, numerous workshops for industry, designed digital photography programs, and has an ongoing photography, publishing and consulting business. He has lectured for leading digital and photographic industry forums: Seybold, MacWorld, Image World, VISCOM, PhotoEast, PhotoWest, PhotoPlus, Fotofusion, the Agfa Technology Expo, FOGRA (Germany), Digital 95 (Great Britain), the International Symposium on Electronic Photography at Photokina (Germany), the University of California, Xerox PARC, and at Stanford University.

About his Field Workshops, Stephen says: Since 1978 when I began this field workshop program, I have come to consider it one of the most effective teaching formats available. The assistance I can provide in the field helps to prevent many of the problems students encounter in the darkroom, chemical or electronic. Whether it is looking through viewfinders and discussing composition, or talking through a difficult exposure problem, these field workshops have proven to be very useful and enjoyable experience. Individual problem solving is a high priority in my workshop program. Classes are kept small to maximize individual attention.

About his Studio Workshops, Stephen says: I founded the Digital Studio Workshop program in 1992 in response to the growing need for education with photography’s transition from silver to digital. Having lectured on the subject for years, and taught photography for decades, it seemed a natural service to provide for which I believed I had a strong set of skills and strengths as an educator.

Since that time, thousands of students have come through the program locally, and at various locations around the US, Europe and Mexico. When people want to know the answers, we hope that they will come to us, where digital photography been done just about longer than anywhere else, taught by someone who’s pushed the technology and companies forward for 15 years, someone with decades of fine art photography experience. We invite you to join us in this program.
