We'll be holding the seminar at the Rose Room of The Stamford Italian Center -1620 Newfield Avenue and we'll start at 7:30 PM.  It's the first of a number of special events that we'll be sponsoring  and we thank Olympus & Epic Photo Tours for coming aboard for this special evening.

David's work has been featured in one-person exhibits at Brown University, U.C. Berkeley and Harvard University. His work has been part of group exhibitions at the Houston FotoFest and the Visa pour l'Image Festival in Perpignan, France. He has been an Artist in residence at the Visual Studies Workshop and the Light Works Photography Center.
He has taught classes at the University of Pennsylvania and workshops at the International Center for Photography in NYC and Maine Media Workshops. Recently he was featured in Photo District News as one of  "The Best Workshop Instructors". PDN states that "former students have praised him for his communication skills, individual attention, tirelessness and patience, and for providing a wealth of practical advice" .
His photo-essays have been funded by fellowships from Nikon/NPPA, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the MacArthur Foundation's Program of Research and Writing on International Peace and Cooperation, the Alicia Patterson Foundation and the Fulbright Foundation. His project on the pesticide poisoning of California farm workers was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize by the Philadelphia Inquirer.
As an Olympus Visionary, Wells has been contracted by the camera company to produce images and provide feedback on new product lines & he will be sharing his use of these cameras in his work.
Save the date! (We KNOW it's not a wedding but it is an evening that  every photographer of all levels will enjoy and learn from! Speaking of learning, our class this week is a 90 minute class for owners of the Sony Alpha & NEX Cameras! It'll be on Thursday August 29th and we'll start at 6 PM!
