160: Adelaide photography masterclass
September 14, 2016 Steve Davis

Close your eyes and imagine a documentary about a rock star. Imagine the way they pan across still photos while the narrator shares stories about the artist. When I do this exercise, I think of Janis Joplin on her knees, Elvis Presley with beads of perspiration dripping from his forehead and cheeks, and Freddie Mercury punching the sky in front of a blazing wall of lights. Still images like these, the ones that make it to print and get etched into our cultural memories, are the ones that capture the essence of the performer and their performance. Our two guests tonight are masters of the lens. Leonard Choice is a New Yorker who lives in Adelaide. He switched from anatomy to fine arts at an early age, then became a performer, moved on to become an event creator and nowadays is a photographer and author with another book due for release. Paul Heck has a PhD in Photography and a Bachelor of Arts in English and Politics, who travels the state on photography assignments. He has run a successful glass art business, worked in Vocational Education and Training, been a member of the CFS for 36 years, and is even a high-performance motorcycle technician.
