APSU's Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts presents a lecture by digital photography pioneer Dan Burkholder at 7 p.m., Monday, Feb. 14, in Trahern 401.

A member of the Freestyle Advisory Board of Photographic Professionals, Burkholder is credited with combining the power of digital imaging with the classical sensitivity of tonality and composition that has shaped photography for 170 years. His landmark book, “Making Digital Negatives for Contact Printing,” has become a standard reference in the digital fine art photography field and was named Best Technical Book by Photo Eye, the world's largest distributor of photography books.

Burkholder's photographs, taken with a 35 mm camera and produced exclusively as platinum/palladium and pigmented-ink prints, are featured in many museum and private collections. His portfolio includes work in the areas of landscape, pictorial and figure photography.

A former workshop student of Ansel Adams, Burkholder earned bachelor's and master's degrees in photography from Brooks Institute of Photography, Santa Barbara, Calif. He has taught at New York's International Center of Photography, The Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego, Calif., and Spain's Royal Photographic Society.

The lecture is free and open to the public. For further information, telephone (931) 221-7333.
