If you are in the Los Angeles area (that would be CA, AZ, NV and WA), or need a fantastic weekend workshop then follow the link below to Craig Semetko’s Leica Akademie weekend. Craig is an exceptional photographer and inspiring teacher. This is an opportunity not to be missed.

Not a Leica owner? You do not have to own a Leica to attend a Leica Akademie Workshop. Tom A. Smith, Manager of Leica Akademie North America, will be on hand with the newest Leica equipment for participants to use through out the weekend. I can say that Tom is also a very good photographer and a good guy.

Craig Semetko “Unposed and Unseen”

Leica Camera invited 10 photographers from around the world to participate in an extraordinary event. These photographers would be paired with their artistic “fathers” and asked to shoot a series of images with that person in mind. Craig Semetko’s creative progenitor was Elliott Erwitt and with Erwitt’s influence to inspire him Semetko set off for India in the summer of 2013.

 “India is a street photographer’s dream. The people are extraordinarily welcoming—they do not mind having their pictures taken, in fact, they usually welcome it…”

Craig Semetko is one of the best street photographers practicing the craft today. Craig was gracious enough to allow us to use three of his images from his India trip in this post. These photographs along with many others are included in an exhibition currently showing through 5/25/14 at the Leica Gallery in Los Angeles.

This body of work is also now available as a limited edition book, “India Unposed.” Sure to be a collector’s item, you can find the book by visiting the link below.
