Viewpoint Student Program

The Viewpoint Student Program was created to provide students with an educational resource that gives them valuable industry information, feedback, and support in a semi-professional environment.  Viewpoint is offering a program to help high school and college students grow and build their art, meet other students in their chosen field of study who share their interests, and join a thriving organization dedicated to the photographic arts.

For students interested in becoming a Member of Viewpoint, the annual fee is only $20 and entitles members to attend all monthly Print and Portfolio nights; to submit their work for possible exhibition in the annual Members Show, field trips organized for members and discounted fees for various workshops and travel trips, and invitations to the Member Receptions at each new monthly exhibit.

NEW to the Viewpoint Student Program is a Workshop Scholarship Fund which provides 20 free half-day workshops held at Viewpoint for full-time high schools students and part time or full time college students with a photography major. This new fund is has been generously provided to Viewpoint through a private family contribution. The fund will be reviewed annual for renewal. Click here for more details.

Student lectures are intended to supplement a student's school experience by offering talks and demonstrations on areas of photographic interest, topics and techniques.  Lectures and demonstrations are given by people experienced in their field.  Viewpoint strives to make these lectures relevant to areas of study.  Suggestions for speakers are always welcome.

This lecture will cover some approaches to humor in photography including juxtaposition, surprise, perspective, and found text.   Dale will illustrate these concepts with some of his road trip photos.   The second half of the lecture will discuss two 20th century masters of humorous photography: Elliot Erwitt and Rene Maltete.

Dale Green grew up in the Bay Area and worked for 30 years in Silicon Valley as a software developer and technical writer.  Now retired, he lives in Rocklin, CA and enjoys photography, print making, and travel.  His latest project is a self-published book of road trip photos titled, Take Pictures Now.  Dale also had an exhibit at Viewpoint of his photographs, some of which are in this book.
