"Celebrating Nature & Wildlife"

This is a slide show that brings together Ligia's first seven years in nature photography. It consists of 14 segments beautifully coordinated to music. Total length: 45 minutes. Approximately two thirds of the 600 + images come from scanned slides and one third from digital captures.

First presented at the New England Camera Club Council (NECCC) Annual Conference in Amherst, MA in July, 2006 where the show received standing ovations. Several other presentations have followed, including one at the 2007, Photographic Society of America annual conference  in Tucson, AZ where Ligia had the honor of being one of the three featured speakers with the very famous Frans Lanting and George Lepp as the other two. Once again, the show received an standing ovation.

If you are interested in having this show presented at your community or organization, please contact Ligia at your earliest convenience.

Some of the reviews/comments

I will be happy to tell you how it went. LIGIA WAS THE STAR OF THE ENTIRE EVENT!! This is a conference that draws over 1100 photographers every July. Ligia's presentation was just amazing and everyone told others "Do NOT miss this program. It will knock your socks off!"

Indeed it did. Her photography is just wonderful as is her presence. If you have an opportunity to view her work anywhere don't miss it. Many attendees went out of their way to see her program more than once.

Congrats to you, Ligia!! What a talent!!!

It’s not often that things turn out this way. I had been eagerly anticipating viewing Ligia’s multimedia show, “Celebrating Nature and Wildlife” since I had heard so many people calling it the best they had seen at the NECCC conference last July. I was not disappointed, as a matter of fact, I was mesmerized by it. As some-one who is new to “nature” photography, I was able to appreciate the skills necessary to capture the many birds in flight, even puffins. If you have never tried to photograph a puffin in flight before, bring A LOT of film!! Good luck if you can even find them through your viewfinder! Better make sure your memory card is BIG. The audience was treated to a delightful smorgasbord of birds and beasts. She had images of moose with expressions I have never seen before. I swear one was laughing. From Alaska to Namibia, to Maine and Newfoundland, and points in between, her landscapes wowed us! You can tell that Ligia truly loves what she does; you can feel it in her imagery. Many thanks to Ligia for coming from so far to share her love of photography. Great show, definitely worth waiting for!!!!

* From the Greater Lynn Photographic Association, MA after the presentation at this Club:

I have never seen folks stay that long after a presentation and ask that many questions. Usually, there are only a few questions and everyone books it out so fast. You had them eating out of your hand!

Thanks for a great show!

I had the recent pleasure of attending my first Photographic Society of America (PSA) Conference in Tucson, September 2-8. There were some interesting guest speakers including George Lepp and two very inspiring presenters, Frans Lanting and Ligia Dovale-Kiamco who were excellent. If you ever get a chance to see Ligia’s presentation you won’t be disappointed. She may not be a house-hold name in photography yet, but once you see her you will agree her photography and presentation is the best.
