Ben Eby: “This workshop was unequivocally an incredible experience, which I will always appreciate. Both Art & Gavriel are great personal mentors, who are most accommodating when it comes to sharing their applied knowledge, and personal experience. I look forward to reconnecting in the future.” To contact Ben about his photos and experience, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Kevin Mullen: “I have had the pleasure of taking two different photo workshops with Art Wolfe this year. Once in Zion in April and the most recent one in the Canadian Rockies. As a result of these two great workshops I have taken my photography to a new level. Through the well prepared teaching presentations, the portfolio reviews and the personal attention of Art, I have been able to change how I view the world around me to photograph. With these improved skills from these two workshops I have produced some of the best photographs I have taken in my life with a camera. Thank you for making photography even more enjoyable!”
Ben, Kevin, Ken and May – Great work all the way around! Thank you!
Here are some very nice images from workshop participant Richard Ross. Richard joined Art Wolfe on two international workshops this year. First to Japan and the beauty of Japanese culture, and then onto the amazing landscape of Iceland. Thanks for sharing, Richard.
The Canadian Rockies never disappoint. The scenery is the finest you’ll ever want to see, and I was so pleased to share some of my favorite locations with a small group of fellow photographers. We rode on horseback into Jasper National Park’s Tonquin Valley and rose before dawn to photograph the fleeting sunrises. The weather was mercurial: one moment the sun was glinting off the Amethyst Lakes, the next we were being stung in the face with granular snow blowing sideways. We huddled for a few minutes in a defensive circle like muskox and let the storm blow by. There was still ice on many of the lakes and we were able to experiment with abstract macro shots, which was a terrific contrast to the expansive landscape around us. Glacial powder blue Peyto Lake never disappoints and Lake Louise with its bloodred canoes is always iconic. I look forward to taking another group back soon!
Blue Earth’s first project was “The Living Wild”. Since then they have helped photographers create many socially and environmentally critical works. This is a great event that supports Blue Earth and you could walk away with a great piece of art by one of the many talented photographers.
Australian businessman-turned-photographer Denis Glennon traveled to China with Art in April and his observations have been published in Better Digital Camera Magazine. More exciting yet, Denis & Art are planning a comprehensive seminar & workshop series in Australia & South Africa for March/April 2012. Details will be posted as soon as they are finalized.
I have traveled to many locations that are not friendly to my traditional photography workflow. Here’s one way I deal with harsh conditions while still getting the shots I want, shot on location in Mali.
