Shooting the Street: Become a Better Photographer

Shooting the Street: Become a Better Photographer

Posted on October 1, 2020

Shooting the StreetOn Thursday, October 8, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. via Zoom, the Union County Public Library will be hosting an informational presentation on urban photography. This is of interest for most people since many of us nowadays are heavily engaged on documenting moments and events on social media. This is an excellent opportunity to learn how to increase the quality of your photos from a bone fide professional.

As part of the Hispanic Heritage Month celebration the library has invited Puerto Rican photographer Donald Sánchez to present “Shooting the Street”: a wonderful compilation of his portfolio highlights along with instructional comments, tips and a Q&A session.

Donald Sanchez was born and raised in New York City. He attended the High School of Art & Design in Manhattan, majoring in advertising design and illustration. Donald graduated from The King’s College in Briarcliff Manor, NY with a B.A. in Psychology. Donald worked at the NYPD’s Organized Crime Bureau’s Photo Unit and trained investigators in covert surveillance photography. He completed both the FBI’s Basic School of Photography and the Nikon School of Law Enforcement Photography courses. Donald was a first responder on September 11th, 2001, and was himself a subject in two photography books, “Faces of Ground Zero” by Joe McNally and “Aftermath” by John Botte. He volunteers for a nonprofit organization called Creating Exposure for the Arts teaching photography to young teens at several libraries in Mecklenburg County.

Please use this Meeting ID on Zoom to register: 826 0336 3234
