Sad demise of photography teacher, Richard Stromberg

The noted photography teacher, Richard Stromberg, 66, died of pancreatic cancer on the 7th of November, 2014, at Presence St.Francis Hospital in Evanston, Illinois.

This news had been confirmed by his wife Heidi Levin. Richard Stromberg pursued his career in photography as an assistant to photographers. He was a teacher for a period of more than 45 years and throughout his career he assisted people in developing their understanding towards photography. He started a program in photography at the Jane Addams Center at Belmont Avenue and Broadway in 1969 where he taught till 2002. When this building was sold by the Hull House Association he started the Chicago Photography Center where knowledge was imparted on the basic photography skills. Mr. Stromberg highly stressed on building a psychological and aesthetic relation between the photographer and his subject of photography.

Stromberg’s methods of teaching were unique. He encouraged his students to take photographs of strangers with respect and in an elegant way. His students took photographs of their classmates. He wanted his students to form a level of comfort with the camera and understand their abilities. He later left the Chicago Photography Center and started Richard Stromberg’s Chicago Photography Classes. He even worked as a photojournalist when he was not teaching in the late 1970s. He was known for his perfections and eye for detail. He would never shut his lenses till he attained the high standards of his photographs. A former reporter and editor Tom Brune said that Mr. Stromberg taught photographers to see though their lens and identify the person in front of them.

His Levin said that he was liked by all for his immense knowledge and generous nature. She further mentioned that his current studio mostly portrays works of his students and not his own. His dedication to work can be determined from the fact that he had taken classes till a week before his death. A tribute to the life and work of this creative genius will be paid at his photographic school in Ravenswood in -December.

Marwell Wildlife declares Photographer of the Year contest winners

Marwell Wildlife has declared the winners of their 5th Photographer of the Year contest that saw hundreds of amateur, pro as well as young snappers hunt the best that the Mother Nature has to offer. The zoo’s Amur leopard cub Kanika snatched the top prize as she explored her fence. The snap was clicked by George Wheelhouse.
Stealing the limelight in the funny and cute category was a Japanese macaque. It was captured on camera playing with a phone as it bathed in the Jigokudari pool in Japan. Winchester’s Suzie Tanser was behind the camera for this strange shot that ensured that she was laurelled winner of the category.
According to reports, she stated that she is not very sure how he got hold of it, but one of the macaques was brandishing an iPhone. Initially, it played with it but then appeared to take a closer look – not sure if he was checking his Facebook, looking for a selfie or just admiring its own reflection.
In the meantime, fourteen year old Eloise Mott, from Southampton, won junior Cute as well as Funny category for her snap of a zebra lying its head on another one’s back. The young person, who has just taken up photography last year, stated that they were on holiday in South Africa. When they were on a safari, it was just resting its chin and she thought that is cute. It popped up outside the car and rested its head for a couple of minutes and then went back to eating.
