Coming Soon! - Barcelona with Lluis Ripoll
Ignite a passion! Follow the Light! Invest in experience!TM
Our tours and workshops are in-the-field experiences open to photographers who desire to hone skills in capturing content and developing a style – all in the beautiful and mysterious environs of Cuba, Venice, Santa Fe, Mustang, Scotland and East & Southern Africa – preferably using Leica M or Fuji X digital cameras. Both of these systems are well suited to the classic image-making activity in which we engage: street photography & portraiture, landscapes and the ability to lend 'presence' to static objects like buildings and monuments.
Mindfullness / Be Here Now
Just as Buddhism attempts to get one to live in the present, mindful of the now, we boost your visual story-telling by helping you focus on the image in front of you at any given moment. The knack is to create the best, most engaging and captivating photograph you can with this one chance – right now! Digital imaging and zoom lenses often obscure this idea, submerging it deep below the level of conscious thinking. With our ability to freely churn through hundreds of images we forget that it is this one picture right now, there before us, that is the most important image we will ever make – at least until we approach the next shot!
In photography the path you choose is not just the journey, it is also the goal: there is no end, there is simply the journey.
Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best. – Theodore Isaac Rubin
