Amos Nachoum Lecture: The Art of Making Icon Images Versus Taking Pictures

Thursday, November 14, 2013, at 7PM
$10 General  Admission; $5 Students & Seniors

Amos Nachoum is a wildlife photographer and explorer. He has shot just about everything there is to shoot, war, journalism, fashion, racing of cars and Motorcycles…but what he loves most is wildlife photography. Especially if it’s in the water. And he has become world-famous at it. So much so, in fact, that he has been asked to lead National Geographic expedition teams with Dr. Eugenie Clark, Dr. Sylvia Earle, and astronaut Buzz Aldrin. He has co-produced documentaries with Stan Waterman, and he was the team leader for National Geographic’s Red Sea, Great White Shark, and Killer Whale photo expeditions.

Amos will talk about the thought process and preparations a photographer needs to make before each assignment and every day for their work. Using his imagery as examples, he will discuss thinking about creating images that have not been seen before, and what it takes to successfully execute them. He will draw on his years of experience working for such clients as  Apple, IBM, Microsoft, Discovery Channel, Armani, Disney, and Colombia Pictures.

 

His work has also been included in the books The Living Ocean, The World of Nature, and Oceans. He has been profiled in television appearances on National Geographic Explorer, Today, and Good Morning America, as well as featured in People, Esquire, and Money magazines.
