The Big Bend of Texas is an iconic photographic canvas. It includes one of the largest, most remote and least visited national parks in the lower 48 states and contains many unexpected treasures for the photographer. Tom Haymes and Alex Suarez have been shooting together for over 30 years. Since 2009 they have regularly traveled to West Texas together and apart to try to capture the unexplored treasures of the park. These trips are usually in a very constrained timeframe so they have to pick targets carefully and hope for the best in the weather and lighting. There have been many lessons learned during these journeys.
In this presentation we will discuss different areas of the park and how and when to shoot them for maximum effect. What time of day should you shoot at Sotol Vista? Where’s the best place for night photography? How do the weather patterns vary during different times of the year? These are the kinds of questions that Tom and Alex will address as they go through their library of images from around the Bend. They will also discuss their different approaches to photography and why some subjects captured their respective imaginations and others didn’t.
