about the Telluride Photo Festival, September 20-26, 2010
Telluride presents its first Photo Festival. It's an inspiring event to culminate the vibrant Telluride Colorado festival season.
The world's most renowned outdoor and adventure photographers will share their art and their passion at Telluride's inaugural Photography Festival September 20 - 26, 2010. The weeklong event, geared toward professional and experienced amateur photographers, features photography workshops, seminars, symposiums, portfolio reviews and exhibits.
The photo festival also seeks to foster the next generation of photographers by offering programs geared toward young people, as well as amateur and intermediate photographers.
Additionally, the public is invited to view and enjoy the many outdoor photography exhibits in and around Telluride and Mountain Village. The photo festival has something for every level of aptitude and appreciation. The photography festival is timed just right for photographers to capture the changing fall light and the aspens turning gold and blaze orange.
The Photography Festival is teaming up with the Ah Haa School for the Arts. The Ah Haa School is a community center of learning and culture and a Telluride icon for nearly two decades. Ah Haa will help promote the Festival and host a number of Festival events as well as the opening reception and gallery shows at the School's historic Depot building.
There is just no better place for a Photo Festival than Telluride. Tucked in a high mountain valley, Telluride is a dream playground for the adventurer and the photographer. Majestic peaks surround the town, once home to silver and gold prospectors. Weathered ruins of old mining operations dot the hillsides. Telluride is also home to a world-class ski resort. The area attracts mountain bikers, hang gliders, kayakers and climbers. Telluride is known worldwide for its summer festivals: the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Mountain Film, Blues and Brews, Wine Festival and the Telluride Film Festival.
Also it should be mentioned that the festival is within a half day trip of four National Parks--Mesa Verde, Arches, Canyonlands, and Capitol Reef--as well as several notable National Monuments and State Parks such as Hovenweep, Dead Horse Point, and The Black Canyon of the Gunnison.
