Cameron Gillie is a fine art photographer who also leads photography workshops. You can meet him participating in art fairs around the Midwest.
As a staff photographer at the Naples Daily News for six years, my favorite subject matter was covering environmental stories and feature stories in the Florida Everglades. Upon leaving the paper to freelance I built upon that love of the Everglades and started participating in art art fairs with nature photography. I continued to photograph the place I loved, the Florida Everglades with a documentary approach to nature photography.
Wanting to push myself creatively I ventured into pinhole photography. While nature photography is still my first love, I am always searching out new creative ways to photograph the world we live in. I worked on my pinhole photography until I was accepted to some of the top art fairs in the country exclusively with pinhole images. Always exploring, my latest project is light painting vintage still life subjects. It will be interesting to see where that takes me.
I offer nature photography workshops and a pinhole photography workshop as well. My fellow Wisconsin nature photographer Mike Murray of North Sand Photography co-leads the nature photography workshops with me. Having two photographers leading the workshops allow Mike I and opportunity to give each student more one on one attention. Mike and I also have two distinct styles of photography. That gives students two unique perspectives on ways to expand their creative photography. Each workshop is a mix of location photography and informative photo reviews back at the hotel. The photo reviews are a great way to share photographs and have interesting group discussions on everyone’s unique vision. It’s a motivational and educational experience. Digital photography workshops currently include the Door County workshop and the Florida Everglades workshop.
Pinhole Photography Workshop
Pinhole photography is a great way to learn the basics of photography. Participants in the one day pinhole workshop are provided a pinhole camera, film and the film processing. Everyone gets a hands on experience taking their own photos with a simple pinhole camera.
