Special Presentations:

Tarek El Wazzi - Lebanon: nightlife of a different genre

Lebanon is mainly known for its food, nightlife, historical sites, civil war and for the past couple of years its economic, financial and security downfall,  worse of all was the August 4 2020 explosion. Through this presentation I intend to show how myself and others managed to grow and evolve this genre of photography in Lebanon by displaying the photos I captured throughout these years and sharing the stories and experience behind each of them. This hobby has given me unforgettable experiences, some scary and frightening but most have been of joy, happiness, elation and unforgettable memories. 


Jeremy Kuzub  - Making your Own Luck: A Guide to Aurora Chasing and Photography

On many people's bucket list is the experience of looking up to see a sky filled with Aurora, and to be able to capture and share this experience. Jeremy will present on the art, science, and excitement of Aurora chasing and how you can make the most of the experience. His presentation will cover aurora forecasting, science, photography equipment, and a travel-log of some of his experiences in the North.
