This past weekend, I participated in an Adobe Lightroom workshop in New Paltz, New York, courtesy of Adobe. The workshop was co-facilitated by Adobe Lightroom developers and by photographer and filmmaker Tyler Stableford (one of the world’s “seven great adventure photographers,” as named by Men’s Journal).
I had a chance to talk one-on-one with Stableford during the workshop (interview forthcoming on The Travelers Notebook and MatadorU), and learned more about some of his projects, including his 14-minute documentary, “The Fall Line,” which profiles a wounded warrior who lost both legs in a grenade blast in Iraq. The 101st Airborne Ranger, Heath Calhoun, went on to become a Paralympic skier… even though he’d never skied prior to his injury.
“The Fall Line” has been on the film festival circuit for the past several months and has won several awards; next up: Mountainfilm in Telluride, May 27-30. Stableford will be in attendance, presenting the film. I definitely recommend checking this one out if you’re in the area.
