The Gwinnett Chapter’s guest speaker at the June 27 meeting of the Gwinnett Chapter of GNPA will be David Akoubian. His talk is titled Painting a Photograph.

Professional Nature Photographer and Tamron Image Master, David Akoubian, started his career as a photographer in the early 1990s, but his training started years prior as a painter.

David was educated and trained as a painter in his early years but decided to trade his paint for film in his 20s. Although his medium changed, his style of photography benefited through his art training.

Join David as he discusses how his compositional style of landscape and wildlife photography was and is influenced by the classic painters. He incorporates many of the basic elements from the painters of the Renaissance period into iconic locations as well as “brush strokes” in his images like the Impressionist.

David will set out to inspire you to take your time setting up an image as well as trying fun new techniques to improve your compositions and images.
