The Telluride Photography Festival Returns to Telluride

The Telluride Photography Festival Returns to Telluride



When Eric Moore moved back to Telluride in 2010 after being away for a few years, he decided it was time to create the Telluride Photography Festival. After all, photographers from all over the world already flock to the San Juans every fall. The combination of spectacular golden aspens and spectacular scenery makes it hard for most photographers to resist.

This year the second annual Photography Festival returns to Telluride. World-class photographers such as Tom Till, Adam Barker, Tim Cample and the Camp 4 Collective, and David FitzSimmons will be presenting their work and leading workshops. Professional and amateur photographers alike will have the chance to meet, attend seminars and symposiums, and do portfolio reviews all while exploring this year’s theme of conservation.

One special addition to the festival this year is a DSLR “film festival” on Friday, September 30th. The affordability of the digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera has transformed the film world.  Filmmakers can now easily shoot and produce action, documentary, nature, and advocacy films. Look for Pete McBride’s “Chasing Water” and EP Film’s “Spoil” starting at 12:30 that day. You will never cease to appreciate Telluride’s open space and water.

The festival runs from Monday, September 26th – Sunday October 2nd. For more information, check out their website: and click here to listen to a podcast with Eric.
