Call for Entries: Natural Wonders, PhotoPlace / Vermont Photography Workplace

Deadline May 3rd

PhotoPlace Gallery seeks photographs of the natural world, from sublime landscape vistas to detailed views of the forest floor. As our relationship to our planet seems increasingly fragile, images that encourage us to appreciate natural wonders seem ever more important. Juror David Middleton will choose approximately forty photographs for exhibition on the walls of PhotoPlace Gallery and on this website, and another thirty-five for presentation on the website alone in the “On-Line Gallery Annex.” All seventy-five photographs will be included in a full-color exhibition catalogue to be published with Blurb Books. To help exhibiting artists defray costs, we offer free matting and framing of photographs for the duration of the exhibition, providing they are sized to fit our pre-cut mats and standard frames.

JUROR: David Middleton is a full-time professional outdoor photographer and writer. A passion for natural history and teaching led him to photography and then soon to writing. A passion for sharing his work and helping others led him to leading tours and teaching workshops.

David has led more than 150 nature/photography tours and over 200 photography workshops in places such as Alaska, Arctic Canada, the National Parks of the US, Costa Rica, Ecuador & the Galapagos Islands, Antarctica and the Falkland Islands for a variety of private companies and conservation organizations including the National Audubon Society, the National Wildlife Federation, Maine Audubon Society, Voyagers, Maine Photographic Workshops, the Rocky Mountain School of Photography, Orvis, Santa Fe Workshops, Elderhostel and Penn State University. These days he teaches between 6 -12 workshops a year and critiques about 10,000 slides a year.

David has produced ten books. His first book, Ancient Forests, was published in 1992 and was followed by The Nature of America, which he created, co-directed, contributed photographs and was the principle author, was the largest nature photography book project ever undertaken. His latest books are The Nature of Vermont, A Photographer’s Guide to Vermont, A Photographer’s Guide to the Maine Coast and A Photographers Guide to the Oregon Coast.
