Lecture Meeting

A photographer since 1978, Loren Fisher has photographed subjects as diverse the Olympics in Seoul, Korea, eagles in Alaska, transporting horses in a 747 from Germany, the 106 covered bridges of Vermont, in the dressing room with the Rockettes and backstage with Bruce Springsteen.

Loren has published two photography books: “Pope John Paul II: An American Celebration” which documented the papal visit to New York, New Jersey and Baltimore and “Branson Backstage” which looks at the phenomenon of 35 live music theaters in Branson, Missouri.

Crawling through the woods, donning waders in swamps and searching out what’s good is what keeps Loren excited. While he has traveled to 50 states and 15 countries, Loren loves to seek out the beauty that surrounds him locally.

Loren can be found displaying his work at art shows year round from Florida to Vermont. He teaches workshops locally and at great destinations around the world and is an adjunct professor at Rutgers University.

Loren started working in newspapers in 1978 as a staff photographer and worked for seven newspapers in Indiana, Ohio and New Jersey, plus USA Today as a photographer, photo editor, graphics editor and Managing Editor.

Loren lives in Somerville, N.J. and Woodstock, Vt. with his wife, Robin Gaby Fisher, Woof the cat, Sophie the wonder pup and Zian, who barks too much.
