I am pleased to announce that I will be co-leading this photo workshop with Outdoor Photo Journey in October, 2013.
This workshop includes a 11-day trek into the mountainous terrain of Solu Khumbu, Everest, to Gokyo at 4790 m.
If you are interested in signing up, please contact Outdoor Photo Journey. October is fast approaching and space is very limited.
Dates: October 1-15, 2013
Discover the unparalleled beauty of the Himalayas. This trek takes us to the Solu Khumbu region of Nepal, nestled below Mount Everest. Witness the highest mountains in the world and experience the culture of the Rai, Chhetri, and Sherpa people.
During our trek, daily photographic sessions will include group and one-on-one instruction, demonstrations and critiques of your work. Instead of formal lectures, our workshop will be focused on providing support in the field to develop your photographic technique, skill and voice.
Topics we will explore are: using your camera to its full potential, capturing unique landscapes and natural portraits of local life. Our small group size allows personalized attention, with the goal of developing your technique, composition, and storytelling skills. At different locations on the trek, we will focus on cultural or landscape photography.
