Lewis Kemper has been photographing the natural beauty of North America, and its parklands for over 30 years. During his extensive travels, he has been to 47 states from Alaska to Florida.   His work has been exhibited and published in magazines, books, and calendars worldwide.  Lewis will be conducting a two part program for NVPS--the first part is entitled, "Light, Color and Composition", and the second part is "A Photographer's Tibet".

Before moving west, he received a BA in Fine Art Photography from the George Washington University in 1976. The grandeur of the west beckoned and Lewis moved to Yosemite National Park, where he lived for 11 years. From 1978 until 1980, he worked at The Ansel Adams Gallery. Working at the gallery gave him the opportunity to meet, observe and learn from some of the greatest photographers of our time. "The experience of working at The Ansel Adams Gallery was very influential in my development as a photographer", he states.  Lewis captures color images using Canon digital cameras and 4 x 5 cameras. . He has been selected to Canon's Explorers of Light program featuring 62 of the country's most influential photographers.  Lewis will be coming to NVPS from the West Coast for a special Program, so please mark your calendars to attend--this is a great opportunity to see a speaker who's new to NVPS!  Lewis will be joining us for dinner at Chili's at 5:45 PM prior to the Program, so if you'd like to attend dinner, please rsvp to mary.m.o'neill@nospam!#*&^#)type address - don't copy spam protection(*@.@nospamgsk.com or call/text 703-216-9340.
