Photography with Assistive Technology - SSU - CEI - Thursday, December, 3, 2020

Advanced Beginner

Monday, September, 28, 2020, 10:00am to 11:30am PST

The profound connection to the environment and wildlife enjoyed by many nature photographers is not accessible to us all equally. Whether you or someone you want to invite on nature photography outings uses a wheelchair, has limited use of their hands, or is weak and has tremors, this informative and interactive event is for you.

We will explore artistic techniques using Assistive Technology (AT) for smart phones and digital cameras in order to promote accessible photography for everyone. You are encouraged to reach out to HeartWorks Jeree’ and Rick in advance for specific information about your disability or mobility needs, and how to acquire AT.

At Sonoma State University – Center for Environmental Inquiry and Heartwork Photography we are deeply involved in both Nature and Wildlife Conservation and we work with many Environmental and Wildlife groups to increase awareness.

This event is open to all ages, and is for anyone with a disability or interest in nature photography access for all.

Before the event, please try using your camera or smart phone in advance, and explore the “local nature” photography options in or near your home, such as your back or front yard, just down the street, on your porch, or through your window.

Also please create a Google account, as a Google Drive folder link will be sent to you upon registration, and this is where we will upload the photos we capture during the event.

Zoom meeting details will be sent to you upon registration.
