March General Meeting: Michael Oberman - Nature Photography

  • 03 Mar 2021
  • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Online Zoom Meeting

Join us for our March General Meeting, on Wednesday, the 3rd, 7-9 PM, via Zoom. Our speaker will be Michael Oberman, on Nature Photography.

Michaels's photographs are on permanent display in U.S. National Parks including Steigerwald and Modoc and in museums including the Utah Museum of Natural History and the Ontario Science Centre (Toronto). Six of his photos are on a five year tour of U.S. and Canadian museums in an exhibit called "Imaginate", under the auspices of the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto (where the same six photos are on permanent display).

Before photography, he spent his life in the music business; he started as a music columnist for the Washington Star and a six year period interviewed more than 300 major recording artists, .including David Bowie, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, James Brown...the list is too long for this page.  I later worked for a record company and managed artists.  Now he is back to his true love: Photography.

In 2019, he was signed to a publishing contract for a book about his life in the music business.  He spent eight months writing "Fast Forward, Play, and Rewind". It was published on October 15th.  It is currently available on Amazon.com.

Michaels's photographs have also appeared in publications including Parade Magazine, The London Daily Mirror, The Baltimore Sun, Motoring and Leisure (Great Britain), Why Men Make Bad Pets (book), The Lotus: Know It and Grow It (book), Middle School textbooks in Israel, and Elementary School textbooks in Malaysia

He has exhibited at Circle Gallery (Annapolis), Slayton House Gallery (Columbia, MD), The Netherlands Pavilion (Expo 2009 in Spain), and The North American Museum (Zurich, Switzerland)
