Chris Le Sesne will be starting a photography club on Monday, October 12th at The Prizery. The club is open to any who are interested in participating and will initially be free. Meetings will occur in the Art Gallery Lobby on the second Monday of each month from 7:00pm – 8:30pm. The topic for the first meeting: composition.
Like most photographers from in his generation, Chris started with a Kodak Brownie. It’s almost a cliché but, the Brownie camera revolutionized photography. Professional photographers everywhere maligned the new technology. It seemed to threaten their very existence. In fact, it was just another revolution in technology. There were many more to come.
Christian Le Sesne has been an avid photographer since that first Brownie and has embraced all those technological changes since. He has worked with 35mm film, infrared, ultrasound, electronic imaging and now digital imaging. His work has involved a variety of subjects including glamour, fashion, nature, technical and surveillance imaging. His first foray into digital imaging was during the early 90’s while working in the consumer electronics industry. Those images were very technical and primarily dealt with microscopic defects in electronic assemblies and components.
By the late 90’s he trained his first digital camera on panoramas, family and friends. His digital work has appeared in art competitions throughout Indiana, awarded prizes at the state level and several local publications in central Indiana. He is the owner/operator of http://www.MorseLakePhoto.com and was actively involved in several other photography businesses, clubs and organizations including The Riviera Camera Club, Indiana Professional Photographers Guild, Photo Venture Camera Club and founder of the Hamilton County Photographers’ Group. He has been a photography instructor at Focus On Studios in Carmel, IN where he also did portrait, fashion and glamour photography. He assisted with several outreach programs in the Hamilton County public library system by teaching, organizing exhibits and judging photography competitions.
Christian still uses his photography extensively for technical applications and wants to continue expanding his work in teaching photography, nature and astrophotography, portrait photography and glamour photography. Most recently, he looks forward to applying these skills in his new work in South Boston, VA.
