Description:
Award-winning Sedona, Arizona, photographer Greg Griffin will tackle “The Art of Street Photography” for area photographers at 7 p.m., Monday, August 13, at the Mountain Community Mennonite Church facility, 643 Hwy 105, in Palmer Lake. The session is free and open to all interested photographers. To see more about the event or the Palmer Divide Photographers Group, go to www.pdphotographers.com.

The presentation will explore the unique photographic opportunities available to photographers on a daily basis, opportunities to photograph people in their environments. Griffin will talk about some of the challenges when doing street and candid photography and how to overcome them. The discussion will include equipment, technique, lighting, surroundings, etiquette, and some basics about post-processing.

Griffin is currently featured in two Sedona galleries, and displays in Sedona Giclée Studios. He is active as a board member and competitor in the Sedona Camera Club, which has nearly 200 members.

He shoots with Canon 5D and 7D cameras, and uses Pentax Prime, Canon telephoto and Tokina wide-angle lenses. With varied photographic experience, he has done wedding and sports, landscape and nature photography, and, at one time, worked for a newspaper and had photo assignments. “While stationed in Europe during my stint in the Air Force,” Griffin said, “I regularly had photos published in the monthly morale and welfare magazine.”

He started photography in high school and has taken numerous photography classes over the years. An individual who studied under Ansel Adams once mentored him. He holds a certificate in photography from a junior college.

Griffin spent nine years in the United States Air Force, two years in the Air National Guard, and nearly 30 years with the San Bernardino County Fire Department in California, retiring as a captain in 2012. After retirement, he and wife Becky moved to Sedona, Arizona. Becky Griffin is also a talented photographer.
