George DeWolfe

George DeWolfe has been a photographer since 1964 and holds an MFA in Photography from the Rochester Institute of Technology. He studied with Ansel Adams and Minor White in the 1970s, and studied Perception with Dr. Richard Zakia.

He taught Zone System and Perception at The New England School of Photography, The University of Idaho, and Colorado Mountain College. He initiated the Appalachian Mountain Club Photography Workshop and teaches numerous workshops and seminars throughout the country. For many years a contract photographer, his clients included APC, Eastman Kodak, Hewlett-Packard, Teledyne Water-Pik, United Bank, Yamaha, J.C. Penny, and Sears.

George has published widely, most notably, At Home In The Wild, on New Hampshire's White Mountains, edited by David Brower, and has contributed to dozens of others including The New Zone System Manual, Zone Systemizer, Perception and Photography, Visual Concepts for Photographers, The Dictionary of Photography, and Creative Digital Printmaking. His two recent books, George DeWolfe's Digital Fine Print Workshop (2006) and B&W Printing (2009) have received wide acclaim as have his two Adobe Photoshop plug-ins, Optipix and PercepTool.

He has shown forty one-man and numerous group exhibitions and is in several permanent collections. He is currently teaching a limited number of very popular workshops on Contemplative Photography throughout the United States.

In 2006 George awarded the award for Artistic Excellence from the National Park Service.

George's passions are teaching visual and digital photography skills and photographing the mysteries of the world. He combines the structure of ancient Chinese landscape painting with the structure of Western landscape genres to achieve his mysterious style. And when he has the time, he plays the bluegrass 5-string banjo.
