It's not everyday that you get to meet a photographer who's shot pirates, actual royalty and James Bond, but today our Digital Photography students had the opportunity to hear and observe the incredible Greg Gorman, who's shot all that and more!
After sharing an unbelievable slideshow encompassing 40 years of commercial, celebrity and fine art photography, Greg brought the students into our own studio - showing a glimpse of what he does to achieve his incredible results. It turns out, that in addition to being a world-class photographer with an amazing portfolio, Greg is a fantastic teacher, working through multiple looks on our own students, explaining various technical considerations and sharing insight from his unparalleled career.
As some of our students tweeted about the event:
@jamierow16 Met Greg Gorman today at my school @vanarts so inspirational.. Great photographer.
@CarlingHood Greg Gorman is going to be in our studio. I've never been so excited to wake up and go to school.
We are extremely grateful for the opportunity to have Mr. Gorman visit and extend thanks to instructor Marc Koegel and his team at Vancouver Photo Workshops for making this visit happen.
