April Speaker: Ed Heaton

On April 18, 2013 at 7pm at the Banana Factory, we will have speaker Ed Heaton.  Ed is a published and award-winning professional photographer / educator residing in Chester County, Pennsylvania who specializes in landscape, nature and travel photography. For close to a decade, Ed has conducted workshops, seminars, and classes on an ongoing basis. Ed’s passion for the outdoors is truly reflected in his photography. Beneath the meditative solitude of his images lie an extraordinary awareness of composition and technique. It is a vision that Ed has developed through years of experience as a professional photographer

Ed will be presenting “Capturing a Sense of Place”.  The goal of the lecture will be to help you capture a sense of place. If you’re like most photographers, you want to capture those great location images that you’ll be excited to show your friends and family when you get home. But knowing how to capture the essence of your location isn’t as easy as it would seem.

For examples of Ed’s work, please visit his website or his Facebook page.
