Neil Chaput de Saintonge

Holiday Camera Buying Guide

December 2, 2014
7:00-9:00 p.m.

Are you considering buying a camera for yourself or someone else this holiday season? Do you get instantly confused by the bells, whistles, confusing numbers, choices, brands and all the hype that goes into making a decision? Join RMSP owner and founder Neil Chaput de Saintonge as he helps you make sense of it all.

In this two-hour lecture, Neil will focus (pun intended) primarily on camera systems ranging from DSLRs to mirrorless cameras, will discuss the pros and cons of each, and will illustrate how it is not necessary to spend a fortune on a camera capable of producing amazingly high quality images. He will cover camera sensors, megapixel misconceptions, appropriate lens choices for each system and generally work to arm you with information before you head into a camera store this season. Handouts that compare the features of various camera models will be provided so you have them to refer to down the road.

Our Evening Lecture Series runs annually from October through April, with monthly lectures taking place from 7 – 9 pm in Studio B at RMSP (unless otherwise noted). All lectures are free and open to the public. To attend a lecture, enter through the set of double glass doors at 210 N. Higgins and follow the signs to Studio B. Click here for a map to RMSP.

If you need further information regarding this series or any individual lecture, please call RMSP at 406-543-0171.

The Making of Missoula Rabble

April 21, 2015
7:00-9:00 p.m.

Ashley McKee was challenged by a coworker to take a photo a day. Little did she know this challenge would lead her to being a published author. Missoula Rabble, a book of portraits and small blurbs about strangers in Missoula, was published in September 2014. McKee will talk about how this project evolved into a media sensation, her experiences talking with strangers on the streets of Missoula, and capturing the human condition. McKee graduated in 2008 from the University of Montana with an MFA in photojournalism.  She has worked as a freelance photographer since she graduated, as well as an intern at The Missoulian and The Oklahoman.

Herbert Swick

From Daguerre to Digital: Highlights from the History of Photography

March 17, 2015
7:00-9:00 p.m.

For 175 years, photography has transformed our lives and helped shape our art and our times.  In turn, advances in science and technology have transformed photography and our reliance on the visual image. This lecture will explore some of the major photographers, art movements and scientific advances that have contributed not only to our enjoyment of excellent photographs but also to our ability to use the tools of photography effectively.

Herbert will touch on some of the major movements in photography including Pictorialism, the f64 group, and the debate about whether photography was an art or a science, and post-modernism. He will also address some of the major scientific developments and the mutual interfaces of photography and technology, each of which influenced the other, as well as some of the iconic photographers and how they influenced our understanding of art and our world; names such as Steichen, Strand, Adams, Weston and W. Eugene Smith.

Herbert Swick has enjoyed photography as a serious hobby for over 40 years, during which time he has become fascinated by the history of photography.  He works almost exclusively with traditional black and white film photography, and he develops and prints his images in his own darkroom.  

Our Evening Lecture Series runs annually from October through April, with monthly lectures taking place from 7 – 9 pm in Studio B at RMSP (unless otherwise noted). All lectures are free and open to the public. To attend a lecture, enter through the set of double glass doors at 210 N. Higgins and follow the signs to Studio B. Click here for a map to RMSP.

Capturing Your Outer Child

January 13, 2015
7:00-9:00 p.m.
When your entire livelihood is supported by how well you capture the essence of a child, you want to make sure your images reflect the most honest and real part of that child’s soul. Every child is different, but the ways to capture who they are can be used in almost every situation. That in itself is an art that can be taught. Anyone can get that simple “cheese” smile, but after years of photographing children Jamie has many tricks and techniques to share that can represent more of who that child actually is … because a photograph of a child that makes a parent tear up is nothing but job security.

Doug Johnson

Keeping Your Photography Fresh

December 9, 2014
7:00-9:00 p.m.

Like many artists, after mastering the technical side of their craft most photographers reach a plateau where technically good photographs come relatively easy. It is at this stage apathy may set in and many people might put their cameras on the proverbial shelf for a while or quit altogether. It is here, however, where real photography begins. With a little nudge and thinking outside the box, our photography can begin to take on a whole new meaning again.

In this insightful lecture Doug will present photography and processing concepts to shake up your routine and create new energy in your photography again. Lets go! In his own work as well as the work of his students, Doug Johnson is passionate about exploring and discovering new ways to see and communicate through the photographic process.

Our Evening Lecture Series runs annually from October through April, with monthly lectures taking place from 7 – 9 pm in Studio B at RMSP (unless otherwise noted). All lectures are free and open to the public. To attend a lecture, enter through the set of double glass doors at 210 N. Higgins and follow the signs to Studio B. Click here for a map to RMSP.

Exposing Like A Master

November 4, 2014
7:00-9:00 p.m.

40 years ago Neil studied with Ansel Adams and much of his exposure knowledge was acquired during this time. Fast forward to the digital environment, and it is all still very relevant today.

This 3 part lecture will include:

Part 1:  Simplifying the exposure process based on the subject matter that you are shooting.  Exposure modes, meter modes and exposure compensation.

Part 2:  Rear button focus and why most professional photographers use this method.  This makes a giant difference in your photography and Neil will tell you why.

Part 3: Preview on depth of field and how to use the depth of field button.
