Elevating Your Art: How to bring more depth, form, and emotion to your images.
We know how to compose an image, but how do we raise our photography above producing well-arranged, 2-dimensional representations? How do we express our vision? It doesn’t matter if you’re a landscape photographer, a portraitist, a bird photographer, an architectural photographer, or you live for bugs on flowers, this conversation is designed to discuss elements we can bring to any of those disciplines to elevate our photos and communicate our vision.
Biography: (the I-really-love-me version)
Ian McVea is a British/Irish-born photojournalist and photography educator. His passion for photography started as a 9-year-old with his mum’s Olympus Pen F half-frame camera, and in 9th grade, at boarding school in Ethiopia, he discovered a life-long love for the darkroom. While attending college in San Diego and Arlington Texas, he worked as a custom black-and-white printer. On graduating from UT Arlington with a degree in Management, Ian joined the Fort Worth Star-Telegram as a staff photographer, later becoming a photo editor and then Director of Photography. During his 23+ years at the Star-Telegram, Ian covered news, features, and sports. Sports photography was not his forte, but he covered the Stars, the Cowboys, and shot a dizzying number of Friday night football games. He covered the OKC bombing, the Shuttle Columbia disaster, and Hurricanes Katrina and Rita for international wire services.
While on staff at the Star-Telegram, Ian taught photojournalism classes as an adjunct professor at TCU’s Schieffer School of Journalism, and on leaving the paper in 2012 he began teaching Commercial Photography full time in the Arlington ISD. He also teaches summer workshop for photography instructors.
Ian’s images have been published by Getty Images, the AP, Reuters, New York Times, LIFE, Time, Newsweek, Sports Illustrated, and then there’s a National Examiner cover he’d rather not discuss. His work has been part of recent exhibits at a number of Texas galleries and art museums, and have received honours from the Dallas Press Club, National Headliners, Houston Press Club, The Texas APME, and the Texas Photographic Society, among others.
He is an active member of the Royal Photographic Society, the Texas Photographic Society, the National Press Photographers Association, American Society of Media Photographers, and the Association of Texas Photography Instructors.
He shoots mostly analogue medium-format and 4x5 cameras. Digitally, Ian is a Nikon Z mirrorless user, but firmly believes that Canon and Sony cameras can lead very productive lives.
Ian has two married daughters who share his passion for analogue photography.

For anyone that has not experienced minor league baseball, you are in for a treat. Minor league ballparks are smaller than those used for major league teams like the Texas Rangers and honestly, way more fun! The Dallas Camera Club has a block of seats along the 3rd base line giving members an excellent opportunity to capture the action up close and personal. The game with the San Antonio Missions begins at 7:05 pm but I suggest getting there at least an hour earlier to be able to scout other shooting locations and photograph the players warming up. Tickets are $25, that gets you a seat and a $10 voucher for the concession stands. Please contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you would like to participate. Your longest lens will probably give you your the best images of the action, but short focal lengths work well for crowd shots.
