SANTA BARBARA, CA – World renowned yachting photographer Sharon Green will be presenting a retrospective of her work at the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum (SBMM) January 16 at 7 PM.

Green, a longtime resident of Santa Barbara, has a reputation as the leading female yachting photographer in the world. For more than three decades she has produced the Ultimate Sailing Calendar – an annual compendium of the top sailboat racing images from venues around the globe. In addition, her skills have been sought by sailing icons such as the late Roy E. Disney; Philippe Kahn, John Kilroy, Dennis Conner, and others – including seven America’s Cup campaigns.

In her quest for dynamic imagery, Green is habitually seen performing dare-devil antics, zipping around the water in a RIB or hanging out of a helicopter to capture world-class events such as the Transpacific Yacht Race, Key West Race Week, San Francisco Big Boat Series, the Admirals Cup, Volvo Round the World, and so on.

The SBMM exhibit features 15 photographic images that span three decades of Green’s work, during an era that has seen dramatic changes in boat design and technology; as well as rapid advancements in photographic equipment and processing.

The exhibit opens with a Thursday Jan 16 talk and slide show combining published and never-before-seen images, at 7PM at the SBMM. The 2014 Ultimate Sailing Calendar will be available for sale ($22.95) and Green will be signing copies.

Admission is $10: call to reserve tickets (805) 962-8404 x115. The exhibition will also be on display at the SBMM throughout January, and is included in the entrance price.
