Sarnia Photographic Club Seminar – Andrew McLachlan November 9th, 2019

The Sarnia Photographic Club is pleased to host Andrew McLachlan in a full day seminar titled “Visual Beauty and Creative Expression from the Wildlands of Ontario and Beyond” in Sarnia on Saturday, November 9th, 2019.

Join Andrew McLachlan on a journey through the vast and varied terrain of the Ontario wilderness, and further afield, while gaining the knowledge and inspiration to create dramatic landscape and wildlife photography. Become inspired with renewed energy and creative ideas as Andrew highlights planning the excursion, personal gear selection, and the various tips and techniques that he deploys, in the field or digital darkroom, on a daily basis, to create visual beauty. Break out of creative slumps as Andrew shares the experience of finding inspiration in new genres of photography and through exploring the creative edit too.

Andrew is an engaging speaker, who will make time throughout the day for questions to help everyone get the most out of this seminar.

More about Andrew:
Andrew McLachlan is a full-time photographer / writer based in Thornton, Ontario. A life-long fascination with the natural world led to Andrew’s love of photography. If he did not own a camera, he would still be found hiking along dense boreal forest trails, canoeing through wetlands, and observing all that nature has to offer. Extensive travels throughout Ontario have resulted in a large, diverse collection of images that feature landscapes, the flora, and the fauna of the province. Andrew’s first eBook A Photographer’s Guide to the Ontario Landscape ‘  is the first ever-comprehensive guide to photographing Ontario’s vast and varied landscape. In addition to photographing Ontario’s natural world he also has growing collections of Caribbean and Amazon Rainforest related imagery. Andrew also enjoys creating artistic renditions of his most favourite images using a variety of Photoshop techniques, Photoshop plug-ins, and creative filters and effects.  

Visit Andrew’s website at www.andrewmclachlan.ca and browse his Galleries. Follow him on Facebook at www.facebook.com/andrew.mclachlan.75.

Seminar participants will be able to take advantage of special presentation rates for Andrew’s eBooks and will have the chance to win many great door prizes, such as Wimberley plamps. 
I hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to learn from Andrew in Sarnia!
