Light, Film & Pixels-Photographing Baja California's Landscape

Experience the Wonder of Baja California with Alan Harper, PhD.

Thanks to those who joined us on Thursday, November 1st at the Terra Peninsular Gallery and Community Center for a special presentation, "Light, Film & Pixels--Photographing Baja California's Landscapes" by Alan Harper, PhD., professional photographer and Terra Peninsular founding board member. A region best preserved and least protected, the Peninsula of Baja California is where extraordinary biodiversity, rapid development, and serene beauty are found in close proximity. Considered part of the 34 global biodiversity hotspots’, Baja California represents one of the most important areas for conservation. Since 2003, Alan has used large format photography to capture the natural beauty of Baja California. On Thursday, Alan will share his knowledge about landscape photography, give insight into how the camera records and changes reality, in hopes of encouraging you to truly experience the wonder of Baja California. Featured will be photographs taken from his exhibit “Baja, Portraits of a Seductive Landscape”.

Millions of people live here, and many more pass through searching for the “real Baja” to the south. But it is here that we find some of the most beautiful landscapes, a soft and inviting climate, and flora and fauna that can fascinate for a lifetime.”
- (Alan Harper, PhD)

Still very active with various conservation projects, Alan hopes to see you on Thursday, November 1st and invites you to join Terra Peninsular in its mission protecting the natural and pristine beauty found only in the Peninsula of Baja California. There’s so much more work that needs to be done and we need your help. Your continued support helps Terra Peninsular continue its conservation efforts protecting and preserving the natural beauty of Baja California.
