Albert C. Weber
April 14, 1930 - February 27,02016
Carmel Highlands photographer Al Weber died February 27, 2016. He was born April 14, 1930 in Denver, Colorado, graduating from the University of Denver with degrees in Photography and Education, then into the Marine Corps, where he served as an artillery officer in Korea.
Locating on the Monterey Peninsula in 1955, he began a 40-year career in commercial photography. Simultaneously he taught workshops for 50 years. He taught at Monterey Peninsula College (1961-1969), UC Santa Cruz Extension (1972-1987), the Ansel Adams Yosemite Workshops (1963-1981) Friends of Photography (1970-1977), the Victor School (that he and his wife Suzie owned and ran from 1977-2007), and as a visiting professor or artist-in-residence for a dozen schools. In 1980 a University of California catalogue said he probably had taught more workshops than any other living photographer.
His commercial photography was mostly Architectural and Aerial.
His personal work included: low level aerial photography, the desert emphasizing the influence of color, the spontaneous nature of children, the predictability of moving water, study of the Bauhaus, study of Notan.
He preferred to be called a photographer, being uncomfortable with the title 'artist.' A high level of craft and working in the darkroom were important to him.
He is survived by his wife, Suzie, and three sons; Chris (Aiko), Ben (Tricia) and Robert (Sara) and his grandchildren, Cole and Emily.
At his request, there are no scheduled services.
