the EMSFDG is a band of professional photographers and aspiring hobbyists that meet monthly at a designated spot to patrol an area and document the environment for a few hours. Each photographer will submit their favorite image from the expedition to be posted in an online gallery on a monthly basis.
Each photographer will get a monthly opportunity to explore an area among peers and produce a body of work outside of their comfort zone. Final submitted work must be produced and sent within a week hours of the walkabout which is presented through ongoing social media films. Expeditions will be either open to the public or closed for select photographers.
EMS Legacy Films is a continuing series of short films produced by EMS on artists and exhibitions.
His art films can be seen at FILMS BY ERIC MINH SWENSON
