People, Planet, and Protected Spaces:
A Visual Storytelling Workshop
with Neil Ever Osborne

From swimming with grizzly bears in the Pacific Northwest, to dropping a 6-million dollar robotic submersible down onto the Gulf of St. Lawrence seafloor, to sitting with an Inuit in the Canadian Arctic wind at -50℃, Neil Ever Osborne is a visual storyteller working on conservation campaigns that express the important link between people and planet. He’s even hiked through the heart of the Brazilian Amazon and didn’t get bitten by a snake, though he saw a spider the size of a dinner plate.

Hear more of Osborne’s misadventures and some fortunate successes as he gains insight from elders in Ecuador’s fragile rainforests, cod-kissing fishermen on the East coast, and a farmer who lives with penguins in his backyard. In their voices, Osborne reflects, “we understand a little bit more about how this crazy world works, and how inherently connected we are to the living planet.” Three nieces add a final touch of wisdom when he talks about his work closer to home, a place he will always want to protect.

Osborne’s work is deeply rooted in a documentary approach that bear’s witness to humanity’s ecological footprint, the human demand on nature. All the while, he uses visual storytelling to start a dialogue he believes is of the utmost importance: we’re not apart from nature, but very much part of it.

Whether you’re an entry-level photographer or avid Instagrammer, a committed enthusiast or a professional communicator, this visual storytelling workshop experience is designed to help you tell more effective stories with your images, but perhaps more significantly, it’s about a community dialogue.

More about Visual Storytelling:

Visual storytelling uses a series of photos to share a narrative—about a place, a character, or a cause—that people can connect to in a way that gets them to act.

Throughout this workshop with Neil Ever Osborne, Nikon Canada’s newest Ambassador and Canadian Geographic’s inaugural Photographer-in-Residence, you will be introduced to the ingredients of effective visual storytelling. Using case studies from his work with international magazines and environmental organizations that explore the intricate link between people and planet this workshop will demonstrate the use of visual storytelling to create conversations that matter.

Value to Participants:

• pre-visualize your story before you go into the field
• create a visual narrative using a diverse set of images
• produce photos with three “distinct features” that Neil use’s to make images stand out from the rest
• on assignment tips and tricks to help you create that one-of-a-kind shot in any location
• get your work in front of the right audience
• latest innovation in gear presented by Nikon
• valuable industry knowledge with an emphasis on the importance of storytelling
• professional direction and advice for launching editorial assignments and/or projects

Hi... Paul Sparrow here from the Latow Photographers Guild.... I hope all is well.
It’s that time of year again when we’re looking for submission for our “Latow International Audio-Visual Festival”.
This year we have a special $500.00 award that will be presented to one of the shows to help promote the “art” of the AV medium (see below).
If you could please pass this onto all your members at the ------- it would be greatly appreciated.
All the best, Paul

This is an invitation to all photographers who are creating audio-visual presentations to submit your productions for consideration in the upcoming annual Latow International Audio-Visual Festival. The Latow AV Festival is regarded as the largest annual audio-visual festival of its kind giving photographers the opportunity to get wide public exposure in a showcase for the AV medium. This year a special “Award for Artistic Merit” will be given out to one of the presented shows (see below).
The festival will take place on Saturday April 14th, 2018 - 7:00pm in the main gallery of the Art Gallery of Burlington as part of Latow's major annual Photography Weekend and will typically have an audience who come from all over Southern Ontario and New York State to view the shows presented. Shown on a theatre size screen using FULL HD projection with surround sound, the concept is to entertain and at the same time give a new appreciation of still photography by using the AV medium in unique and imaginative ways and integrating them with dynamic soundtracks. Last year the Festival drew entries from across Canada, the US, the UK, Germany and Ireland.

There is no fee to make a submission to the Festival. The cutoff date for submissions is January 19th, 2018.

Award for Artistic Merit
This year one of the shows that has been selected for presentation at the Festival will also be selected for a special $500.00 (Canadian) cash award sponsored by the Art Gallery of Burlington and the Latow Photographers Guild. This will be decided by a panel of three artists from the other artistic disciplines outside of Latow as a way of recognizing the “art” of the AV medium.
The award will be accompanied by a special plaque that will be presented by the AGB with the phrase “Latow International Audio-Visual Festival Award for Artistic Merit – Sponsored by the Art Gallery of Burlington and the Latow Photographers Guild” with the person’s name, title of their show and the year.
The winner of this award will be announced at the end of the night’s Audio-Visual Festival presentation and will be presented by Robert Steven, director of the Art Gallery of Burlington.
Those interested in submitting a show for consideration should first read the attached “Submission Guidelines & Specifications” document and then contact:

Subject: Magdalen Island photo workshop

Date: November9, 2017 at 12:40:47 PM EST
To: info@trilliumphotoclub.org

I am writing you about workshops I offer in a little-known pearl of the Gulf of Saint Lawrence in Canada. I tend to approach photography with a small is beautiful mentality and even though the Magdalen Islands are about 60 miles from tip to tip, I have yet to capture all the shots I want over the past 8 years. We have a little over 180 miles of world class beaches and lovely red sand stone capes.

I have two workshop dates so far for 2018, from the 19th to the 26th of August and from the 9th to the 16th of September, but I am available most of the year to offer others. Fall is especially pretty, with the sand dunes becoming golden brown.
I prioritize small groups of six participants, it is much easier to not trip over each others framing and it is also more productive to do reviews.
Information regarding the workshop is available here:

I offer a 10% discount to clubs and couples. I can also offer a 20% discount to full club groups if you prefer to travel together.

I thank you for taking the time to consider my message.
I realize you must receive a ton of emails promoting workshops or products.
If you would prefer to never receive any messages from me, I respect your time and privacy.
As they say here, au plaisir!
