WilderImages to hold photowalk workshop at Mattatuck Museum Arts & History Center

Photographer Ken Wilder and artist Lois Wilder, of Wilderimages located in Southbury, CT, will hold an on-location digital photography workshop Saturday April 24th starting at the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury at 9:00 a.m. and continuing onto the green outside the museum in the afternoon.

The morning session will concentrate on the focus and exposure features of each person's digital camera and how to photograph inside museums using local historic artifacts on display at the Mattatuck. Participants will learn how to use their digital cameras in low light situations, how to isolate a subject and tell a story with their images, as well as minimize reflections in a museum setting.

The afternoon session will begin with a review of the Mattatuck's current Frederick Stone Exhibit of turn-of-the-century photographs and postcards followed by an outdoor photowalk around Waterbury Green and portions of the "main street" business district photographing some of the same structures featured in the exhibit but a century or more later. Many are still there, some have a new face and some have been replaced by something new.

For fee information and to register, call Wilderimages 203-267-1090 or email

Barnstorm 2009

2008 class photo

Barnstorm 2009, October 9th - October 12, 2009 - 100 hand-picked students along with 100 photojournalism professionals descend upon Jeffersonville, New York for the XXII annual Eddie Adams Workshop. Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer, Eddie Adams, founded the intensive four-day program 22 years ago. The tuition-free workshop's purpose is to create a forum in which an exchange of ideas, techniques, and philosophies can be shared between both established members and newcomers to the world of visual journalism.

I and Cathy have been to it as guest visitors, it is an amazing thing. So much talent, new and old, in one place, eating, drinking, and breathing photography for four days non-stop.

View some of the final projects from the students.
