I spent some time recently in southwestern Utah.  Along with the pleasure of presenting a program for the COLOR CAMERA CLUB, located in St. George, I also spent some time with my good friends, and fellow photographers, Bob Kulon, http://www.bobkulonphoto.com/, Gerry Emery (thanks for the couch and the hospitality!), Debbie Bice and Jo Hickman.  We had a lot of laughs and I was quite pleased to come away with a few images as well. Even though Bryce Canyon NP has been photographed over and over. Bob and I drove over there thinking we might get some decent light and we were right. Add that to the rather large amount of snow, it made Bryce look somewhat different from what I have seen in the past. This image is a pan of 3 images shot vertically, making more of a square presentation and offering a wider /vertical view. It’s often a challenge to photograph iconic images different from others.

2012 CHINA & TIBET

 

CHINA, “Beyond the Wall”   June 20-July 4

TIBET,   (optional)              July 4-   July 11

I’ll be devoting a complete blog edition soon with complete details on these workshops. There is too much information to just breeze through it here.

However, the event IS as they say “put to bed” and ready to go. I’ll be joined by master tour guide and a quite accomplished photographer in her own right, Katherine Feng for a 3 week trip into far NW China along the old Silk Road, and Tibet (optional) Very few, if any,( and I don’t know of any yet) have led a photography workshop into this far away region. Few westerners, let alone photographers have ever seen what we’ll be able to see and experience.

 We have chosen STRABO TOURS to handle the booking. STRABO TOURS is long known for first class international photographic tours and workshops and this will be no exception. All travel within China, (passes, permits etc) will be handled by Strabo. Pricing includes EVERYTHING from Beijing and back. Our itinerary has been carefully planned. Katherine has herself been to this region many times and knows the ins and outs.

 An optional week in Tibet will follow….  Need I say more?

 Please visit  http://www.phototc.com/tours/tour.php?tour=152 for details.

A very brief flyer on the trip. However please visit Strabo’s site for interesting information) 2012 CHINA/TIBET FLYER

 Please email me of you have questions but stay tuned… I’ll have even more details soon.

 This is a truly ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE, that few westerners will ever get to be part of.

 This trip will be limited to only 12 people so please don’t delay.

 ICELAND 2012

 Right on the heals of the China trip, my 2012 ICELAND workshop will begin. Tentative dates are July 20-July 31.

 Our itinerary has been set and a few other details will be worked out this week. This will be an all inclusive trip. Transportation, accommodations (10 nights) meals, meeting facilities is included.

 In order to insure the best possible experience, we will have 3 experienced photographers to offer you the highest possible service. In addition to me, my good friend and award winning photographer Tim Vollmer, an Icelandic native with vast knowledge of the island along with another fellow workshop assistant Greg Duncan will guide you through the amazing sites found only here in Iceland. Greg has assisted me on may workshops here in the states. http://www.gregduncanphotography.com/-/gregduncanphotography/

 We will photograph the amazing geothermal areas as well as the mountains, waterfalls, glaciers, coastlines and icebergs. Accommodations are truly representative of Iceland.

 Complete details and pricing will be published here in about a week……….Every time I think about this event, I wish it were tomorrow!
