Doing a few teaching stints this summer in far flung places. In late June, head for the first time to So. Africa, and do seminars in Capetown and Johannesburg. Really excited. I have been to Africa numerous times, but never to the south, and I’ve alway been told amazing things about the beauty that abounds down there. Here’s a link discussing the trip, and the events. Hats off to Nikon South Africa for doing all the logistics and staging for the events!
In July, will be down at one of my favorite places, amongst dear friends, in Santa Fe.
I’m teaching for the National Geographic, and two classes in lighting for the Santa Fe workshops. The Nat Geo class starts on July 14 and is a week long exploration of all manner of photographic skills. The two lighting classes follow on the next week. One is a two day, small flash intensive, and the other a full blown location light class. Excited about the classes! Haven’t been to Santa Fe now for a couple of years, and Donald and I are already discussing which brand of tequila to investigate thoroughly.
Onto St. Lucia in August. Really special this year, as I am joined for the first week of instruction by David Burnett, and the second week by RC Concepcion. Intermingled with the ongoing lessons of flash I always teach, each week will be richened by the teaching of their specialties. David is the quintessential storyteller, a legendary photojournalist who will do lectures, critiques and walkabouts. RC will bring to bear his genius with post-production, HDR shooting and processing, quick and simple video skills, and basic Lightroom tips and shortcuts. On all days, I will be teaching about the language of light, and how it applies whether you are doing a journalistic look see on the streets, or striving for well lit, lavish travel scenes. David’s is the guest instructor for the week of Aug. 18-23, and RC comes in for the week of Aug. 25-30. Here’s the link for the weeks, and all the info.
