The MSU Senior Photography Show will be held at the Fairgrounds, Building 1 on December 17th from 6-10 pm. The name of the event says it all—except I should add that I’ve seen lots of interesting work from students in this program, and I encourage everyone to check it out. Food and drink will be served!

Award-winning photographer Florian Schulz will give a presentation and book-signing at the Museum of the Rockies, Thursday, March 6, at 7:00 pm ($5 for Museum members, $7 for non-members). Schulz has been photographing extensively in the Rockies in support of the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservative Initiative, whose aim is to
to ensure that the world- renowned wilderness, wildlife, native plants, and natural processes of the Yellowstone to Yukon region continue to function as an interconnected web of life, capable of supporting all of the natural and human communities that reside within it, for now and for future generations.
You can learn more about Florian Schultz and see his image galleries and presentations on Y2Y and other projects at his web site.
Craig Hergert has just published a book of his panoramic photography, which I saw at the store, Montana Panoramic Gallery & Beaucoup Framing, in the Emerson galleria during the last art walk (second Friday each month). Speaking for myself, not only do I find these images stunning in their gorgeousness, but they draw you in magnetically to peruse the terrific detail and imagine yourself wandering through the scene. One thing you’re never aware of is the effort and skill required, in the field and after, to create these landscapes. But any photographer who has tried it will keenly appreciate the accomplishment represented on every page.
You can order the book or Craig’s prints from the Montana Panoramic web site. Update: I also spotted signed books at Country Bookshelf, and they can probably be found elsewhere, as well.

Since 1995 she’s been covering Montana and the neighboring states for publications as global as the New York Times and as local as the Big Sky Journal.

From an MSU news release:
Montana State University student Kevin Connolly, who has an unusual viewpoint of the world because he was born without legs, will share a collection of his photographs taken throughout the world and speak about his adventures at a multimedia presentation to be held at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 23, at MSU’s Strand Union Ballrooms.
“The Rolling Exhibition,” the name for Connolly’s collection of photographs, is sponsored by ASMSU and is free and open to the public.
Connolly, a senior honor student from Helena majoring in media and theatre arts, is an X-Games medalist, an extreme skier and a gifted photographer who has traveled the world twice over, taking photos from a perspective few see. His images, shot from a camera at skateboard level, capture people in all walks of life as they notice Connolly for the first time.
