Listen and watch for a preview of this upcoming class.
A special class in a special place. Composing Effective Images with Art Wolfe at the Arboretum in Seattle. February 3-5. This class includes a “Field Session” where we take what we learn in the classroom and then go right out and practice.
This class has the added benefit of beginning Friday night at Art’s home to meet one another and begin learning. Don’t miss this.
What an incredible year it was! I got to meet so many very nice people all over the world. I also turned 60 and became an orphan this year.
Thank you all for participating with me in workshops, tours, classes and in the studio. We all learned so much from each other.
Thanks also to my incredible staff and fellow associate instructors for supporting me and helping me be prepared for the multitude of places and events I touched.
Before we launch into the next year with a full head of steam, enjoy a brief backward glance of some of the places I traveled to this year teaching workshops and classes. I find this is a great way to catch my breath before diving in again. Forgive me if I didn’t mention your spot, even though I was really there.

We are offering an expanded version of this popular class. Now Composing Effective Images will include a field session. February 3-5, 2012. The FIELD EDITION is available only in Seattle, WA.
For those who are ready to take the next step and work in the field with Art Wolfe, this class is perfect. It is a perfect transition from the classroom seminar that will better prepare you for an intensive field workshop. For the many who have already taken Art’s popular Art of Composition Seminar and would like to continue their photographic exploration with a master this is your perfect opportunity.
We are packing so much into this class, that Art will actually begin his first lecture at the opening reception in his home on Friday night.
The November Issue of Outdoor Photographer has several means of expression for me. The cover is Fitz Roy, Argentina. A breathtaking view in this special place called Patagonia. See page 20 for a description.
Next, OP Contributing Editor, Mark Edward Harris, has written a “Workshop Diary” article that describes his experience when he joined up with Jay Goodrich and me on the China workshop this year. This is very helpful for people to get an idea of the daily rhythms that go on during a workshop. There is a lot of work and learning that goes on amid the shuffling between hotels and transportation and meals. It is really great fun.
Finally, I see NIK Software is running an ad for Silver Efex Pro 2 with one of my B&W images from Huang Shan, China.
I’d say I was pretty well covered for November. Thanks, OP!
The workshops I lead in the Olympic National Park always seem to bring out the best in everyone at all skill levels. The late summer fires in Washington make for breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. But it’s always the details that are the most interesting: backlit seaweed clinging to rocks battered by the surf.
We’ll be posting a gallery of workshop participants’ photos soon so watch for it!
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.
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.
