Topic: Flash in Nature Photography
Professional nature photographer, Gregory Basco will be returning as a MONEP presenter at our October meeting. His presentation will focus on the use of flash in nature photography. He will cover the ways in which he uses a single flash and discuss his multi-flash set ups for capturing hummingbirds and other fast moving subjects. Greg will provide both advanced tips and gear suggestions.
Greg is a professional nature photographer based in Costa Rica. After completing graduate degrees in political science and tropical ecology (his doctoral dissertation focused on the politics of ecotourism in Costa Rica), Greg worked in conservation before turning to photography full-time in 2006. His images have been awarded in the Veolia Wildlife Photographer of the Year and Nature’s Best Windland Smith Rice competitions and have appeared in numerous magazines and books around the world. His latest major printed project was the publication of the large format book National Parks of Costa Rica in conjunction with Zona Tropical and Cornell University Press.
His popular e-books include The Guide to Tropical Nature Photography, Lightroom for the Nature Photographer, and the new comprehensive e-book Flash for the Nature Photographer. Greg is also co-owner of Foto Verde Tours, Costa Rica’s first travel company specializing in photographic tourism. Foto Verde Tours focuses on Costa Rica but is expanding its instructional photo workshops throughout Latin America, including Panama, Peru, Ecuador, Chile, Colombia, and Argentina.
