Checking in with Range Gallery

Kathleen McFadden

Colorado Springs is full of amazing photographers, one of which is Kathleen McFadden, the artist and owner of Range Gallery in Old Colorado City. She's had the shopfront for a few years now, but decades of shooting experience, capturing the most Americana corners of Texas to California.

McFadden is also notable for her innovations, like her "third dimension" panoramic photographs that curve out to hug the viewer, and a camera that spins in a full circle, creating a warped image that still manages to document its subject well.

Now McFadden is offering tips and tricks from her trade with photography classes. The image above, which she says was taken at Gus' Tavern in Pueblo, is from one of her class excursions.

She offers courses for beginners, intermediates and old pros looking to get out of a rut, the idea behind her newest class, "Walk About Workshop." For $200, you'll meet up at a predetermined location and see and shoot the way McFadden does: "The goal of this class is to practice the art of seeing the beauty/humor/interest in the everyday world around us. We'll be looking to recognize Americana style human interest, local color and humorous images."

Following that, students will send McFadden their five favorite pictures from the day and receive a critique.

Interested? If not, you can still check in at Range for a variety of prints and cards, or get an image framed.
