Jack Laxer is one of my favorite photographers. For over 50 years, Laxer has been capturing the architecture of Southern California in vivid color – and sometimes even in three dimensions. He was 3D before 3D was cool. On Saturday, July 30th the master is revealing some of his photography secrets and teaching you how to create eye-popping images with regular 2D cameras. Laxer has been all over the world snapping strange and wonderful things in China, Italy and Switzerland. Prepare for a travelogue and remember, he looooves Switzerland. Anyway, his appearances at the California Science Center and the Getty Museum sold out instantly, and this special travel and architectural photography seminar at Bel-Air Camera will fill up quickly, so get your seat now. Hopefully Laxer will inspire you to grab a camera and start clicking. Here’s an idea: You can start with the Bel-Air Camera building itself. The store was designed by architect Stephen Kanner in the programmatic style, where the building resembles what it sells. In this case… a gigantic camera. Art imitates life. Click here for tickets.
