Join up to 5 other like-minded photographers as we travel into and through some of the most fabled landscapes on earth!
Our tours and workshops are open to photographers who desire to hone their skills in capturing content and developing a style – all in the beautiful and mysterious environs of Cuba, Venice, Barcelona, Santa Fe, Mustang, Scotland, East & Southern Africa and Papua New Guinea – preferably (but not required) using Leica M, SL, Q, and Fuji X digital cameras. (Tho it must be noted that 99% of viewers do not care what camera was used; they, like all of us, simply want to see great images!) The above systems are well suited to the classic image-making activity in which we engage: travel and street photography/ portraiture, documentary work, an occasional landscape and the ability to lend 'presence' to static objects like buildings and monuments. (Yes, other cameras and cell photography invited!)
Just as Buddhism attempts to get one to live in the present, in the now, your picture-making will begin to focus on the image you have in front of you at any given moment. The idea is to make the best, most interesting photograph you can with this one chance. Digital has made many of us move this idea to the rear of our consciousness. We know we have hundreds of images to freely burn and forget that it is this one now that is the most important image we will ever make – at least until we approach the next shot!
Photography "has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them." – Elliott Erwitt
