Four Corners of the Earth

Submissions Close 11/1/2011 at Midnight EST
Juror: George DeWolfe

There is boundless beauty in our natural environment, from the intimate view of a blade of grass to the vast panoramic horizon. We need only show up with our cameras! But, how do we translate our personal visions of the natural world, through our photographic tools, and then to our audience?

Each of our relationships to nature is highly personal – we want to see yours. From the tonal depths of an Ansel Adams expansive environment, to the quiet pictorial gestures of an Edward Steichen moment, to contemporary masters’ views, such as our Juror George DeWolfe, who’s contemplative designs on natural beauty insight envy and inspiration. We’re looking for the kind of variety that is in nature herself. Sky’s the limit using contemporary methods, photographic paraphernalia, and a limitless bag of tricks, so whether your landscapes display a traditional approach, leave us questioning reality, or all that is in between, we can’t wait to see your version of this heaven we call Earth.

We’re thrilled to have George DeWolfe as Juror for Four Corners of the Earth. George DeWolfe has been photographing since 1964. He studied with Ansel Adams and Minor White in the 1970’s and holds an MFA in Photography from the Rochester Institute of Technology. George is widely published, most notably At Home In The Wild, George DeWolfe’s Digital Photography Fine Print Workshop and B&W Printing – each has received wide acclaim. His work has been seen in over fifty one-man exhibitions and is part of several permanent collections. Currently a consultant to Epson, Adobe, Hahnemühle, X-rite, and Nik, George is one of the original 15 photographers on the Adobe Lightroom team, and developed Optipix and PercepTool, both Adobe Photoshop plug-ins. He teaches “The Digital Fine Print Workshop”, “B&W Master Print”, and “Contemplative Photography” throughout the United States. Winner of numerous awards, his most recent honor was Award for Artistic Excellence presented by The National Park Service.
