Great photographers share a knack for making images that are as stylistic as they are chalked full of vital information. They’re endlessly passionate about the intersection of art and storytelling.
On Wednesday, February 8th at 12pm ET, we’re sitting down with New York-based documentary and portrait photographer Michael Soluri to discuss his unique approach to visual storytelling. After two decades of unprecedented access to NASA and its staff, he’s sharing insights about how to use curiosity and nuance to make powerful and unexpected images.
- Tips for improving your documentary photography techniques and strategies for making better environmental portraits
- Behind-the-scenes photos from the final space shuttle servicing mission to the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, the ten-year NASA New Horizons mission to the Pluto system and more
