Mark Sowa
An Evening with NASA: Space Exploration Through the Shutter
Thursday, February 27, 2014 6:30-8:00pm

Photography has become an important part of documenting NASA’s space missions.

Photographer Mark Sowa, supervisor of NASA’s Imagery Acquisition Group at the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, will talk about the work he and his team are doing to support the International Space Station and beyond.

Sowa has photographed 45 crew portraits, countless individual astronaut portraits, documented engineering and astronaut training aboard NASA's reduced‑gravity aircraft, and dived over 1,300 times while photographing suited extravehicular training underwater in NASA's Water Environment Training Facility and later in NASA's Neutral Buoyancy Training Facility. He has logged many hours flying aboard NASA's reduced gravity aircraft.

Operating eight different camera systems, the NASA photography team captures images, HD video, high speed digital motion picture, time‑lapse and spherical 360 panoramas as a record of research and development at NASA.  The wide range of multimedia products produced by Sowa’s team not only record humankind's efforts in space exploration but inspire the public.
