Alex has the distinction of being our NUMBER ONE most requested future speaker and for good reason. The subtle and powerful nature of his work and images and the accolades and wonder that it instills in people. This is certainly one not to be missed.
Alex Noriega is a professional nature photographer and educator based in Southwestern Utah. He primarily focuses on intimate landscapes within the Colorado Plateau and the Mojave Desert. Alex aims to convey a sense of mystery or a specific atmosphere with his photographs. He often achieves this by simplifying the elements within his compositions, excluding context outside of the light and his main subject, thus engaging the viewer’s imagination.
Learn how Alex uses the idea of simplification in post-processing to make my subjects stand out, giving even small or quiet subjects a large impact. While Alex sometimes employs complex tools or techniques to achieve precision, he primarily employs simple tools to achieve his vision. After the presentation, he will conduct a short image review wherein he will offer critique and demonstrate post-processing methods on some of your own photographs!
