Lori Kincaid – “The Southern Appalachian Landscape”
The Southern Appalachian Landscape Photo Program
The LeConte Photographic Society of Sevierville will have a photo program “The Southern Appalachian Landscape” by Lori Kincaid on Saturday, February 20th at 10:00 a.m. at the King Family Library in Sevierville. This program is free and open to the public.
Lori Kincaid is a professional photographer and self-taught naturalist specializing in the landscapes and flora of the Southern Appalachians. Lori's work has been published in many premier platforms for nature photography including Sierra Club Calendars, Audubon Calendars and National Geographic publications. Her photographs are featured regularly in national and regional magazines such as Backpacker, Audubon, Sierra, Our State, Blue Ridge Country, and WNC Magazine; and in books, calendars, brochures, and media around the world. Lori has participated in national and regional juried photography exhibitions and in 2014 served on a panel sponsored by the Wilderness Society that explored the creative aspects of wilderness. She teaches photography at her secluded mountaintop home near Max Patch on the North Carolina-Tennessee border, where she finds fresh inspiration each and every day.
The Southern Appalachians are ancient mountains of soul-nurturing beauty characterized by deep forests, fast flowing streams, and unparalleled biodiversity. In this presentation, Lori’s photographs will take you deep into the mountains, from the oft-visited Blue Ridge Parkway and Great Smoky Mountains to lesser known wild places where mystery and solitude prevail. Lori will describe her approach to photographing the diverse and often chaotic Appalachian landscape, which includes responding to intuition, using light and atmospheric conditions to best advantage, simplifying complex scenes through careful composition, and mastering technical challenges. With images that range from the expansive beauty of a Blue Ridge sunset to the sheltering intimacy of the forest floor, Lori’s goal is to help you find your photographic muse.

Please come out and join us for this very informative program and to enjoy the beautiful photography that Lori creates. She will inspire you to get out and become a better photographer.

FROM DEE MURPHY: I wanted to give you titles on two books I highly recom
mend toward being a professional photographer. One is a yearly issue of Photographer's Market, published by the Reader's Digest Books (aslo available at library reference section).
One issue could be good for years and will give you many sources for
your photos. I want to add, ALWAYS make a contact first. Do not send
your work anywhere until you have assurance the publisher is interested
and follow their guidelines carefully.
The second book I recommend is for selling an image to a client. PRICING PHOTOGRAPHY, The Complete Guide to Assignment & Stock Prices. This is by Michal Heron and David MacTavish.
you have any field trip ideas, please contact Cindy. We are always
looking for local, regional and national outing opportunities. None too
small and none too big!
