The Coastal Arts Guild welcomes husband and wife photographers Ted Crego and Kim Cuc Tran presenting “Three Steps to a Great Photo” at the Visual Arts Center, April 3, 11:30am at the Visual Arts Center.
Crego and Tran have both received many awards through the Vietnamese Artistic Photographic Association, Tri-Community Photo Center, Photographic Society of America, Oregon State Fair Salon of Photography, Columbia Council of Camera Clubs and other competitions.
Ted Crego retired from being an engineer and moved to Newport in 2010. He began photography in 1970 and learned how to develop black and white photos while in the military. Additional photography courses were taken along with his wife, Kim, in Covina, California. He enjoys focusing on patterns and macro shots and, most recently, he is doing more panoramas and “high dynamic range” photos. He is president of the Yaquina Art Association Photographers, a member of the After Light Photo Club, and member of the Vietnamese Artistic Photography Association.
Kim Cuc Tran escaped from Vietnam by boat to Malaysia in 1980 and migrated to the US in 1981. She moved to Oregon in 2001 and then to Newport in 2009. She started taking photography classes with the Vietnamese Artistic Photographic Association in Orange County, CA in 1993. Photography studies continued starting with 35mm film and then converting to digital in 2004.
