Al Weber (1930 – 2016)

Mojave Cloud Series #7, 1974

Mojave Cloud Series #7, 1974

Master photographer, teacher, mentor and advocate for excellence in photography, Al Weber has passed away at the age of 85.

Robert Yellowlees, Lumière founder, noted, “Al was a friend to many… personally and professionally. His work was admired, his advise sought and his integrity respected.”

“No matter the subject, the color, or perspective from ground or the air… Al’s photographs always radiate his commitment to excellence in his craft… whether behind the camera or in the darkroom in his Carmel Highlands studio.”

After his studies at the University of Denver and his service as a Marine
artillery officer in Korea, he relocated on California’s Monterey Peninsula.

Al was proud to be a teacher.

A University of California catalogue in 1980 said that he had likely taught more workshops than any other living photographer. His teaching included Monterey Community College, UC Santa Cruz, the Ansel Adams Yosemite Workshops (1963-1981), Friends of Photography and as a visiting professor or artist-in-residence at a dozen universities. He, and his wife Suzie, founded and managed the Victor School (of art) in Colorado for 30 years.

It is officially winter! Hopefully we can all avoid conditions like those in this photograph.
