BCA Logo (2)Rick Friedman, nationally known photojournalist, will be the featured speaker at the Bedford Center for the Arts Photo Group’s meeting from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1, at the Old Town Hall, 16 South Road. Friedman has been a photojournalist for over three decades. Based in Boston, he travels the world for numerous publications, corporations, advertising assignments and film and television productions. His published work has appeared in Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, Nature, USA Today, The Guardian, Der Spiegel, Stern, Discover and many other publications, including more than 75 book and magazine covers. Friendman’s visit is being sponsored by Hunt’s Photo & Video, a major supply store for photographers, with locations in Melrose, Boston, and Nashua.

In his talk, Friedman will discuss on location lighting, and how any photographer can adapt his portable lighting techniques to solve difficult problems often encountered in non-studio environments. These techniques have been taught in his “Location Lighting Workshops™” for the past 12 years across the US and UK. Friedman covers a range of approaches that include environmental manipulation, use of a single flash or speedlight, using colored filters, and other very creative approaches that can be used on-location. Some of these approaches can be seen on his website at
