Our guest speaker tonight is Beat Glanzmann with his presentation “My Life in the Yukon”.
Introduction to my person and my work as a professional photographer: A photographic journey through my life in the Yukon wilderness, specializing in the landscape and wildlife photography. Impressions – amazing, exciting, unique and scary moments during my field work.
Pushing the limits and experimentation:
- Landscape photography – low light and night. Special field techniques incl. focus stacking, aurora photography, long time exposures, astro time-lapse techniques and drone photography.
- Wildlife photography – My approach to wild animals and ethics. High speed, portrait and action photography. Special exposures and techniques during the eagle and bear photo sessions.
Post processing: Some of my workflows, tricks and tips in PS, LR, NIK and TK Luminosity Masks.
At the age of 20, after living with bears on a deserted Alaskan island for several weeks, Beat found his passion in nature photography. He turned professional after publishing to various markets in collaboration with a leading photo stock agency. Beat also shared his adventures during public multi vision media shows in Europe and organized bear photography tours to support his dreams. In 1996, at the age of 26, he immigrated to the Yukon. He hand built his own log home and the resort just outside Kluane National Park from where he guides photo tours throughout the Yukon and Alaska. He also hosts photographic workshops. His images continue to be sold worldwide to renowned magazines.
Beat continues to push photography boundaries to the limits – low light night (northern lights, star trails), high speed wildlife actions (eagles, bears) as well as landscapes (frozen lakes, mountains, fall colours), all often at unique locations during unusual light conditions.
