I just returned from a fantastic trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico. Thanks for all of your restaurant recommendations! Here are the details for our 2019 Portrait Workshop:
Dates: September 19-22, 2019 Thursday at 7:00 pm – Sunday at 11:00 am
Cost: $1449 (Maximum 10 people)
Details: Are you interested in learning how to take better travel portraits? Want to know how to shoot a compelling image using a speed light in one minute or less? Or maybe you want to shoot portraits against warm adobe backgrounds? Join us in the heart of the desert southwest to learn how to photograph the people of Santa Fe. This class will be loaded with fantastic photo opportunities while participants learn how to create evocative portraits and master lighting techniques.
Our days will be filled with class time mixed with photo shoots. We will be photographing a variety of models including cowboys, indigenous Puebloan people and colorful locals. Locations include urban settings, adobe architecture and an authentic pueblo nestled in the mountains between Santa Fe and Taos. We will take advantage of Santa Fe’s renowned dining to teach how to do a five minute food shot for travel photographers. This class will provide ample opportunity for all participants to practice flash techniques and work with models during the photo shoots.
We have just posted our spring schedule for 2019. New this year is Tucson: the Old West and Spring Yellowstone. For our repeat trips we have added dates for Badlands 2019 and Redwoods & Rocky Coastlines 2019. Click here to link to our website.
We have been working on our 2019 winter and spring dates. We have already posted trips to Fairbanks (sold out) and Tucson (just posted). In the next few weeks, we will be posting trips to:
May: Yellowstone Wildlife
July: Redwoods & Rocky Coastlines
August: Mt Rainer
Dates: April 24-28, 2019
Details: Come photograph one of the most iconic landscapes of the West, the Sonoran Desert. Tucson is the perfect location to fully explore and photograph this mountainous desert environment. We’ve designed this workshop to be loaded with special photo opportunities, and timed to catch wildflower blooms in the desert. We’ve spent many years photographing in this area, and a blazing orange sunset framed by a towering saguaro cactus is an image every photographer should capture.
Dates: Oct 17-21, 2018
Several people have inquired about this trip and Sedona, Arizona is one of our favorite desert photography locations. Join us for a fall retreat to a spectacular location for landscapes, autumn color and an evening of star photography. Crimson maples and yellow Gambel oak will line the steep sandstone walls of Oak Creek Canyon. Beautiful reflections along streams mirror the sun scrolling down the orange canyon walls. Yucca, ocotillo and prickly pear cactus grow in the vibrant desert, providing terrific macro photography opportunities.
We are very excited about our upcoming Lighting Las Vegas Photo Workshop on March 22-25. Learn to use speed lights and strobes in the city of lights while working with colorful models. We will use evenings to shoot lights on the strip and famous locations like the Bellagio Fountain. There is just one space left. Learn More
