Presentation Description

In about 75 minutes, Cole Thompson will make the case that black and white is the perfect medium for any subject…except for one. Cole will show work from his various portfolios including The Ghosts of Auschwitz-Birkenau, Harbinger, Ceiling Lamps, Moai, Sitting for Portrait, The Lone Man, Negative Intersections and others.

Interspersed between the images Cole will share his photographic philosophies, such as:

Never listen to others

Photographic Celibacy

Coles Rule of Thirds

Equipment is overrated

Vision is the most important tool in my toolbox

And many others

At the end of his presentation Cole will answer questions and give away a print of The Angel Gabriel


Cole Thompson is uniquely unqualified to speak on photography.

“I’ve never taken a photography class or a workshop. I don’t have a degree in art. I’ve never worked as a photographer. I don’t have gallery representation. I’m not a Canon Explorer of Light. And I only have three lenses and none of them are primes.

Do I have any qualifications? Just one…my images. Nothing else matters.
