Here is a quick bio of Bruce:
As a Director, Cinematographer, and Photographer, Bruce has spent the past thirty-five years with his eye to a camera's viewfinder. Bruce's work has been featured by Time-Life, Conde Nast and many other major magazine publishers. He has also earned Gold Medals in most of the major professional competitions and earned a Bronze Lion from the Cannes Commercial Film Festival. Bruce is a member of the Directors Guild of America and is represented by Image Bank. He is a sponsored artist for Canon in their exclusive Explorer of Light and Print Master programs.
Bruce earned his BFA in Visual Communications and has taught photography at the university level. In the States, Bruce maintains a professional photography studio, www.idcphotography.com where he offers both commercial photography and digital illustration. Bruce and his wife, Special Effects expert Maura Dutra, lecture on the digital arts in behalf of Canon, Corel, and F.J. Westcott. This pair is considered to be among the world's finest digital painters, an art form that has only recently emerged.
Bruce's personal passions revolve around his dual interests of nature photography and teaching. A patient mentor, Bruce enjoys sharing the subtle craft of composition, timing, and the artful exploitation of available light. Fun is Bruce's middle name. Well, not legally, but that could change at any moment. Bruce welcomes photographers and cinematographers of all experience levels to his trips.
Bruce will be leading two safaris this summer, and there are only a few spots available:
Expect more safaris from more photographers in 2009 and beyond. I personally lead 6 safaris each year, and my goal is to add an additional
6 for a total of 12. As a team of photographers covering Africa, you can expect us in many of the absolute best photographically rich locations on the continent.
