We invite all members of the Sierra Club San Diego’s Photo Section to our September 2021 online meeting with landscape and travel photographer Inge Johnsson and his talk “Exploring Photography in Texas”. Meeting date and time are at the end of this invitation. Please continue reading if you’re interested.
Landscape and travel photography in Texas
Texas is perhaps not known as the most photogenic state in America but does offer considerably diverse subjects and destinations for the avid photographer. Whether your interest is cityscapes, Americana, wildlife, or landscapes, you can find it in Texas… but there may be miles and miles of travel involved.
Inge will take us to a few of his favorite parts of the Lone Star state, and while doing so he will also discuss his approach to photographing the different photographic subject types we encounter.
Inge is a freelance photographer based in North Bend, Washington, at the base of the Cascade Mountain range, and has a day job in the Telecommunications and IT industry. He has been a photographer since the mid 1980s and “grew up” with film-based cameras, shooting slide and B&W film. Originally from Sweden, he travels throughout America and the rest of the world as much as he can find time for, focusing primarily on travel, landscape, and nature subjects. Inge has lived in Texas at various points in time for a total of 18 years.
Inge markets and sells his work as fine art products, stock images, and through direct work with various clients (e.g. magazines, calendars, interior designers). His photography has been featured in numerous books and magazines, including National Geographic, Texas Highways, Time Magazine Popular Photography, and Smithsonian Magazine.

After the main presentation, we’ll take a short break before we continue with our MemberShare.
Photos don’t have to be recent. SEND YOUR BEST PHOTOGRAPHS. For example, create a small series of five favorite images or a project, and share with others what your photographic interests are about.
Here’s a quick reminder of the guidelines and procedure:
- Send up to five photos via Dropbox file request.
- Check our guide on image sizes, JPEG quality, file naming, metadata
- Prepare to speak no more than 10-20 seconds on each photo
- We expect technically solid photographic work
- Deadline for MemberShare submissions: Friday, September 17, 6pm
- Nameplates: feel free to include a vertical orientation headshot with your photos
To submit your images, simply click this button:
If you need help or if there’s anything unclear about this procedure, the Dropbox help article on file requests contains everything you need to know.
NOTE: Your photos are only shown during MemberShare and will be deleted afterwards. We do not keep copies. There is no need to watermark your photos. If you feel that you must add a logo or other overlay, please keep it small and unobtrusive.
When the MemberShare is especially popular, we may have to reduce the amount of images from each member. If that happens we will announce it before MemberShare begins, and hope for your understanding.
