About Speaker

first to photograph all 60 national parks, only known to do so with a large format film camera only living artist in Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan's movie "The National Parks: America's Best Idea" recognized by the California State Legislature for his photography of the national parks QT Luong celebrates the splendor and variety of the natural and human heritage with his photography. He has been privileged to travel through an immense geographic range, from the top of the coldest mountain on earth to under tropical seas. He has been called "today's leading photographer of America's National Parks" as well as a "Modern Master", and his best-selling book Treasured Landsreceived critical acclaim and six national book awards.

Born to Vietnamese parents in Paris, France, he was trained as a scientist (PhD U. Paris). The revelation of the high Alps led him to become a mountain climber and wilderness guide. When he came to the US to conduct research in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Image Processing for what was to be a short stay, he chose UC Berkeley, because of the proximity to Yosemite--a world class rock climbing destination.

There, he fell in love with the National Parks and decided to photograph all of them with a 5x7 large format camera , a single-handed, self-financed, monumental project that had not been completed by anyone before. To that effect, he settled in the San Francisco Bay Area and started crisscrossing this country to capture its diverse beauty. QT's in-depth coverage of the Parks often dictated long hikes into the backcountry, with a 75 lb backpack, and only his passion and dedication to keep him company. By 2002, he had visited each of the 58 National Parks. He subsequently left his distinguished career as a scientist to work as a full-time photographer. In 2009, Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan featured him as one of the few living characters in their film The National Parks: America's Best Idea.

QT is the founder of the primary online resource for large format photography. His photographs have been the subject of four large-format books. They have appeared in several publications from National Geographic, Time, Life, Outside, Scientific American, GEO, and many others in dozens of countries around the world. His work has been profiled or reviewed in publications such as Outdoor Photographer, Rangefinder, National Geographic Explorer, Parks, New York Times, Boston Globe, San Jose Mercury News and has been seen in galleries and museum solo exhibitions on both coasts. He also reached a large audience through terragalleria.com, one of the most visited of all individual photographers websites.


ABSTRACT In 300 visits over 25 years, QT Luong ventured deep into each of America's 60 national parks to celebrate their beauty. He is the only person known to have done so with a large format camera. In this projected presentation, QT gives an inspirational account of his unlikely journey from a research scientist, newcomer to this country, to the publication of his multiple award-winning book Treasured Lands (http://treasuredlandsbook.com/). Along the way, QT shares his incredible wilderness adventures from Arctic Alaska to the volcanoes of tropical Hawaii, while at the same time discussing his evolution as a photographer and the techniques he uses to capture the astonishing diversity of nature found in the national parks.

(QT will bring books for sale to the audience, and he can accept directly cash, checks, and credit cards.)
