Can’t wait for the spring for many reasons, like better weather and better news on the travel front, but mostly because of a new workshop in beautiful California Wine Country with Liza Politi and Ari Espay.
First week is sold out, so May 1 – May 7 dates were added by request for a second week.
So happy about this workshop! I’ve kidded with our participants over email that we can sit on a beautiful veranda overlooking a luscious landscape, cameras on tripods, an auto-bracket programmed, radio remote in one hand, glass of wine in the other!
Kidding. We will work hard as we always do. We’ll be out in the field early and late, embracing the best light the day has to offer, and then in class, editing, critiquing, and evaluating. These workshops are all involving, and the aim is to collectively push the photo needle out of established comfort zones into new ways of shooting and seeing. There will be landscape shooting aplenty, mixed with portraiture, detail work, flash work, street shooting (when we meet in San Francisco), editing skills, and class discussions.
And…..book discussions! My new book, The Real Deal, will be well out by then, and my editor at Rocky Nook, Ted Waitt, has promised to come by for at least one of the weeks to sit with the class and discuss the process of making and publishing a photo book.
We’ll do all that in a phenomenally beautiful area of the world. After gathering for a brief stint in San Fran, we head north over the Golden Gate into the miracle of wine country.
Workshop Registration here. A few slots left in the second week. Making pictures in a wonderful place, and reviving that wonderful spirit of being together as a group and pursuing what we love to do. The relaxed nature of where we will be lends itself to beautiful light, pictures of the land and of people, and the sharing aspects of workshops. Great way to start Spring ’22!
