#WorkshopWednesday – Upcoming Pacific Northwest Seminars & More!

After spending two weeks in Alaska photographing beautiful images of brown bears, salmon, and wolves, I am now home in Seattle and looking at my schedule for the upcoming months. The Pacific Northwest figures prominently in these plans and Fall is a lovely time to visit.

Lake Quinault is one of my absolute favorite locations to visit in the fall, and only one space remains to join me there in September! You can hear the sound of the elk bugling, the golden colors of ancient big leaf maples surround you, and you may have a chance to spot eagles, otters, and bobcats feeding on spawning salmon in the local rivers!

I will be teaching two Photography As Art seminars in Portland (early bird special!) and Seattle this November. I constantly update my presentation, so if you have seen this seminar before, there is a good chance it has changed since the time you last attended.

As a wildcard, one space has opened up on the September Greenland expedition that I am leading with Kevin Raber and Steven Gosling. This is sure to be an unforgettable experience for everyone!

Friday Workshop Update!

It’s May, and the sun is out here in the Pacific Northwest. Have you thought of what you want to do in July and August? Consider joining me in Alaska’s Katmai National Park to photograph bears. Scary? No. Exhilarating? Indeed! These are the last Katmai trips I am offering until 2021 so if you have been sitting on the fence, it’s time to jump off and sign on. None of us are getting any younger!

Just two spots are left on my Romania tour with native son Gavriel Jecan, and two spots just opened up on the Antarctica Fly/Cruise in February. Sign up today to ensure your spot in these trips before they fill up!

Have a fantastic weekend!

#WorkshopWednesday – Upcoming Workshops in the Pacific Northwest & More!

I absolutely love this time of year, the days are getting longer and spring is right around the corner! After many cold weather trips this winter I am ready for the new palate of color that spring bestows upon us.

Of special note I have several opportunities coming up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest this year: the Olympic Peninsula in April when the mosses are rich and green and the rivers are clear; Mount Rainier in August when the wildflowers are at their peak; Lake Quinault in September for a restorative retreat in the ancient temperate rainforest; and a renewed Photography as Art seminar in November.

These workshops only have a few spaces left so sign up today before they are all sold out!

Best of Light!

Hey Philadelphia, “Photography As Art” is This Saturday!

I’m excited to be bringing Photography As Art to the City of Brotherly Love this weekend. Three more sleeps till I see all the smiling face of those whom are already signed up! If you’re in the area and haven’t registered, there are still some spaces remaining. This is the LAST seminar on the calendar for the year – as much as I love presenting them, I’ve got some catching up to do with other trips, workshops, and upcoming book projects – so you can bet I’m going to enjoy every minute of it!

If you aren’t familiar with Photography As Art, the focus is on using your camera – any camera, mobile phone included – to capture and create uncommon and visually imaginative images using design principles and art history as your guide. We will discuss the work that has inspired me while expressing just how accessible creating beautiful images can be without having to travel far afield, or re-hashing the same old “same old”.

This has become a finely tuned seminar, and one I feel can be enjoyed and appreciated by photographers of all ages and skill levels; a valuable mindset to have when starting out, as well as an important new perspective on your goals as an experienced shooter. The feedback I’ve received in my most recent dates in Montreal and New York are overwhelming – come and spend your Saturday with me!

Workshop Wednesday – “Photography As Art” in Tampa, Montreal & New York!

Photography As Art is just around the corner on the East Coast and Canada! On Sunday, May 20th I’ll be in Tampa, Florida and then the weekend of June 2nd and 3rd I’ll be in Montreal and New York respectively – sign up today to ensure your spot!

If you’ve attended the seminar before, this would be a great refresher as I’ve spent much of the down time I had at home this past winter revising, adding, and updating. Though I am continually working to improve the messaging and adding new photos from current shoots, this break was the first time I’ve been able to really sit down and completely fine tune what has become a popular and requested seminar – if I haven’t been to your city yet, leave a comment below!

Photography As Art Will also be coming to the Keystone State in June, with seminars in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh on the 9th and 10th respectively – stay tuned for more details!

Workshop Wednesday – New Locations Available!

Due to popular demand I’ve added several new workshops and retreats to the 2018 calendar, as well as an epic photo journey to Japan in February of 2019! Many new additions involve the Pacific Northwest, so If you’ve been meaning to join me in the part of the world I reside in and know inside and out, now is the time to get signed up for a workshop!

Building on the success of last year’s Hawaii retreat, we’ve added another to the calendar this year. As always, my goal in visiting each location is to teach you to see and capture the shots you won’t find anywhere else; the interesting perspectives and details that will give your photographic eye unique vision to capture the less obvious.

If you’re near Raleigh, North Carolina I’ll be there this weekend presenting Photography As Art, and I’ll be presenting that same seminar soon in Tampa, Montreal, New York, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh.

These workshops tend to fill up quickly – many 2018 workshops are already full – and several are right around the corner! Sign up today to ensure your spot!


April 26 – 29
Olympic Peninsula Workshop with Art Wolfe – Only one spot remaining!

May 2 – 6
Imaginary Landscapes Pacific Grove Retreat with Art Wolfe – Very small, intimate group – few spots remain!

Events Coming Soon to the Southeastern U.S.!

Spring is just around the corner, and after heading to the U.K. to present Earth Is My Witness at the Photography Show in Birmingham, I’ll be returning stateside for a few events in the Southeast.

Photography As Art happens on March 25th in Raleigh, North Carolina and I’ll be visiting Florida in May to present the seminar in Tampa as well. In between, I’ll be bringing a west coast favorite to Hotlanta with the inaugural Abstract Atlanta workshop, a new riff on what’s become an annual favorite that originated in Astoria, Oregon.

After being cooped up for so long, I can’t wait to get back out there refreshed and with new perspective. Hope to see you there, or at any of the other upcoming events!  For those of you interested in hanging out with me in my own back yard, check out the recent post on Pacific Northwest Events.

Space is limited, and many of these events are nearing capacity. Hop on before they sell out!
