Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium offers photography course

LUMCON, i.e. the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium, is all set to offer the Coastal Landscape Photography 2015 workshop and course from 17th to 22nd May at LUMCON’s DeFelice Marine. Nicholls State University’s Gary LaFleur and South Eastern Louisiana University’s Dennis Sipiorski are the instructors for this course and would lead people in daily excursions to locations across the coastal zone of southeast Louisiana.

The course that could be taken for credit or as an informational showcase, is offered to heighten participant understanding of coastal environments as well as Southeast Louisiana’s the rich coastal culture.

In the week long course, participants would stay at Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium’s DeFelice Marine Center. The cost of the course is US$ 350 plus the cost of board and room, and field trips, photography supplies and vessel time are covered by the course fee.

Applicants are asked to have at least a primary understanding of photography along with a 35 mm camera. Those who are interested must apply by 15th April.

Meanwhile, Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson vetoed a bill that wanted photographers to get consents before they click person’s picture on the road without their permission. He said that he has received several letters from Arkansas amateur and pro photographers who raise legitimate concerns about the bill. They asked for the language be changed so that they are not subject to substantial financial burdens in the conduct of their small businesses across the state.
