Raymond Gehman is a world-renowned and award winning National Geographic photographer who has traveled the globe on assignment for 25 years. He has earned the honor of being a National Geographic EXPLORER IN RESIDENCE. With two Geographic cover stories and numerous other Geographic magazine articles, he has also published articles in Life, Time, Newsweek, American Photographer, Modern Photography, National Wildlife, Outside, The Nature Conservancy, Traveler, World, Geo, Stern, and Paris-Match, among others. His works have appeared in many National Geographic books that include seven solo projects. He has been recognized as both the New Face in Photojournalism by American Photographer Magazine, and as Photographer of the Year by the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA). His knack for combining photojournalism with a fine artist eye has earned him acclaim and respect worldwide. He is one of only a handful of Geographic photographers whose work transcends the printed page, and has often exhibited in galleries from Palm Beach to Houston.
Raymond is a major producer of stock photography, creating images for Corbis, Getty, and National Geographic Creative, three of the largest stock photo agencies in the world. His subjects range from grizzly bears and pools that are hot enough to boil a drifting duck, to the aftermath of hurricanes, glacially carved valleys, Everglades river of grass, the rolling hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and the sculpted peaks of the Chinese Karst Towers. His more recent, impressionistic digital photographs include everything from apples to oranges, flowers to flying light domes, and glass globes to transcendent trucks. His experimentations with the digital camera have allowed him to develop and refine his signature STROBEnBLUR technique, the use of long exposures with flash to create surreal landscapes he refers to as Extended Moments. These images can be viewed on his recently redesigned website, http://www.raymondgehman.com.
For nearly 30 years, Raymond has presented workshops and lectures beginning with the Flying Short Course sponsored by NPPA, and extending to a variety of photographic centers, universities, colleges, and high schools across the U.S. Most recently, Raymond has been ARTIST IN RESIDENCE at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre. He teaches everything from introductory to advanced and artistic classes, from wide-angle landscapes to close-up portraits, and from basic Photoshop to state-of-the art digital processing.
As a lecturer and workshop instructor, Raymond is much beloved by his students who return time and again to learn his techniques and art of photography. With his open, friendly, and approachable manner, he has inspired thousands of students from the United States to Canada, and from India to China. Raymond believes in a stress-free and fun learning environment. As one of his lecture or workshop participants, you will receive his individual attention; he will be there to help you in whatever manner necessary to help you see better photographs, experience less technical difficulty and frustration, and take the next step in your creativity, talent and artistry.
Raymond conducts his lectures and photo workshops differently from other instructors. As an experienced teacher he knows there is a cadence and rhythm to every offering that provides plenty of inspiration and opportunity for learning and shooting. He knows it is important to have time to absorb and process information as well as just kicking back and enjoying the sights and sounds of the shared photographic adventure. Most importantly, Raymond believes in the group experience, that everyone has something to learn and contribute. Everyone will find great photographs, will leave happy, and will have learned and experienced much more that just great photography!
