If you want to improve your skills shooting night photographs or want to learn that type of photography for the first time be sure to attend the Photochrome Exploring Photography meeting on Thursday July 17, 2014
at 7:30 pm. The program will be presented by well-known night photographer Tim Baskerville. Baskerville explains: “We will travel from Daguerreotype to digital, in a decade-by-decade survey of night photography and the technological advances that made it ever more possible and popular in the modern psyche. Then historical reference material is “spiced up” a bit with practical hints on how you can improve your nocturnal photographs”.
Baskerville received his BFA degree in photography and liberal arts from the University of San Francisco. He has taught courses and workshops in Night Photography at U.C. Berkeley Extension, U.C. Santa Cruz, College of Marin, Cape Cod Photographic Workshops, and Photographic Resource Center at Boston University. In addition to workshops and classes in California, he has conducted a photographic / cultural workshop in West Ireland, once a year. His work has received many awards, and has appeared in numerous publications and exhibitions in this country and abroad.
He founded The Nocturnes, an exhibiting group of Bay Area artists/educators, in 1991 and the critically acclaimed Web site of the same name in 1996. Since then, the site has grown to become the premier source of information and education pertaining to night photography, as well as an international community for night photographers.
In 2005, Baskerville relocated to Mare Island in Northern California, site of the former Mare Island Naval Shipyard, where he continues to offer Workshops and Private Instruction in Photography. He has served as a Volunteer for the Mare Island Historic Park Foundation since 2006 and was instrumental in developing the Foundation’s Web sites:
We hope to see you all at the upcoming Photochrome Exploring Photography Meeting.
