New Books, Workshops & More on the Horizon!

It’s hard to believe we are half way through 2018! Summer is here and the flycatchers, chickadees, and hummingbirds are nesting in the yard. I wanted to take some time to update you on some exciting upcoming book news, as well as several new additions to the workshop calendar:

  •  My latest book project Trees: Between Earth and Heaven has been sent off to the printer. We will have copies here in late October and I have a pre-order special going that includes a signed copy of the book and a small print. This will be another gorgeous, weighty tome—on the scale of Earth Is My Witness with three gatefolds and 296 pages. Once again Wade Davis has penned an introduction, and text is by noted author Greg McNamee. Please note that there will be a tree planted by Roots of Peace for every copy of the book sold.
  •  Interested in being in your own Human Canvas? Recently I had a request from friends to do a custom piece with them as models and it turned out magnificently. I personally will work with you in creating your own unique piece. Please reach out through our contact page.
  • We’ve just posted seven – count ‘em, seven –  new workshops for 2019! Highlights include Holi and tigers in India, Katmai Bears (I have locked down the best time to see them), and an autumn photo journey to Romania. Native son Gavriel Jecan will be co-leading in Romania with me and he will guide us to all his favorite locations in the magnificent Carpathian Mountains. We might see bears there too! I have also posted the 2019 editions of Abstract Astoria and Mount Rainier Wildflowers.

It’s shaping up to be a very full second half of 2018 and I am looking forward to some fantastic photo opportunities in 2019 and beyond. I hope you can join me for some of them! You can also save 20% on my current and very popular print of the month featuring a bear fishing in Katmai, Alaska – one of the locations you’ll find on my list of workshops – and check out my first half images for 2018. Keep in mind just about any image you can find in any of my books, on the website itself, or the stock site is likely available as a print – contact my staff and we will set you up with pricing and details, and I’ll personally sign it before we send it your way!

Wishing You the Best of Light!

Pacific Northwest Events Spring Line-up

I will be busy this spring in the Pacific Northwest. Sometimes it’s a good thing to hang around the neighborhood and get reacquainted.

March 11-12, Seattle: Photography as Art Deluxe Edition

Here in my home town I am offering a special meet and greet that will take place at my house. There will be hors d’oeuvres, beverages, and a special slide show! I will also include a copy of one of my popular how-to books. The following day, we will rendezvous at the Frye Art Museum for the seminar. For those of you who attended the debut of this seminar at Kenmore Camera over a year ago, please be aware that it has been extensively updated.

April 13-16, Olympic Peninsula Workshop

Hop on this perennial favorite! I myself have decided to do just that and will co-lead this workshop with Gavriel Jecan, Yuri Choufour, and Libby Pfeiffer. We will explore this internationally recognized biosphere that is in our backyard–this is a wonderland where the scent of saltwater and fir hang in the air and the horizon sometimes seems to make the entire world appear to be shades of blue and green.

May 5-6, Seattle: Blue Earth Alliance Collaborations for a Cause (#C4C17)

C4C17 is the 5th annual visual storytelling event put on by Blue Earth Alliance. They have brought together socially conscious businesses, non-profits, educators, public agencies and content creators for two days of inspiration, exploration, and partnership building. I will be presenting the opening keynote, “All in a Life’s Work: The Creative Process of Art Wolfe” on Friday, May 5th at 9:00 AM.

May 7: Portland: Photography As Art

In this full-day seminar, you’ll learn that the beauty, emotion and versatility expressed through photography are matched only by the limits of your imagination. Using art history as a reference point, the seminar highlights common visual elements, from shape and space to texture and light, and shows you how to apply them to enhance your own compositions. You’ll explore innovative ways to translate conceptual ideas into creative results, learn how to spot the non-obvious, and uncover new ways to expand your visual imagination.

May 24-28: Abstract Astoria Photography Retreat

This is fast becoming my second most popular workshop. Situated at the mouth of the mighty Columbia River, Astoria is a fascinating and revitalizing port city with a history tied to the early territorial aspirations of the United States. My goal is work closely with each participant to truly transform and refine their skills while exploring the nature of creativity itself.

Earth Friendly Calendars

t2e calendar

I have been working with Amber Lotus for many many years. They are a great company to work with, and I thought I would share their mission:

Amber Lotus Publishing’s wall calendars are like a book that you read one page a month. This vehicle can be very valuable in promoting inspirational ideas because the messages, quotes and concepts are repeatedly transmitted throughout the month. These inspirations sink into the reader’s consciousness while they are engaged in something as prosaic as checking what is scheduled for the next day. Therefore, they are inserting the infinite into the finite realm of time. We are committed to supporting Environmental Awareness, Earth Stewardship and Mindful Living through the pages of these calendars.

We have always been concerned about the environment. We were one of the first calendar companies to use recycled paper and were an early member of Green America. We started our program of offsetting our tree usage and carbon footprint by planting trees and contributing funds to NativeEnergy. We continue that initial focus by using FSC certified paper and partnering with Trees for the Future. As of 2013, Amber Lotus Publishing has helped plant more than 330,000 trees and Trees for the Future has certified that we are now significantly carbon negative as a company.

You can purchase a copy of the 2014 Travels to the Edge calendar on my store.
