Al Weber In Photo Technique Magazine

Al Weber In Photo Technique Magazine

Weber work was featured in Lumière’s exhibition: Picturing The West. The program included his exceptional rock art, landscapes and aerial photography. His aerial photography is the cover story in the March/April issue of Photo Technique Magazine.

Below is an excerpt of the article.

“When I photograph from the air, I feel I must have a sense of flight in the photograph. The birds eye view. The quickness required. The ever present wind. The gentle vibration of the plane. The presence of a pilot I like and trust. The wonderful sense of isolation. Everything it takes to make an aerial photograph.”

Al Weber’s photography has been exhibited in the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Fine Arts in Kyoto, Japan, and in many regional museums. He has taught photography since 1963, as instructor for Ansel Adams in Yosemite, at his own Victor School, CO, and in workshops including those with David Vestal at the Photographers’ Formulary in Montana. He was Educational Chairman at Friends of Photography in Carmel, CA and spent many years in a varied career of commercial photography for national publications and major manufacturers. This article is a prelude to a book of Weber’s aerial photography scheduled to be published later this year.
