photo workshops on horseback, In Canada!
"Warner Guiding and Outfitting's Holiday on Horseback held it's first photo workshop this summer and it was a great success! Good times were had by all on the trail and around the campfire. All eighteen participants, three back country cooks, two guides, and mule packers took home mew photography skills to work on. The knowledge Raymond shared with his fellow riders produced amazing photographs of our back country in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Locations such as Dormer Pass, Stony Creek, 40 Mile Summit, Cascade River, Palliser Range, and Block Mountain are places visited by few and shared by friends. We at Warner Guiding and Outfitting are proud of the success of this workshop and are planning three similar trips with Raymond for the summer of 2010. We hope to see everyone out here again!"
Photography Workshop in india!
May 26-June 2, 2012
Hello my friends! I am doing a workshop in India from May 26-June 2, 2012! Please join me! Supported by Nikon and powered by Hewlitt-Packard and Adobe, Abraxas Photography of India is organizing this exquisite “Fashion & Nature” photography workshop in Ladakh, India’s northern most state. On the western edge of Tibet in the Indian Himalayas, this “Land of High Passes and Barren Beauty” will play host to my instruction on nature photography while Hemant Sud and Datta Gawade guide participants in shooting fashion in this mountain Shangri-La. The curriculum includes photography basics, lens selection, outdoor natural-lighting techniques and composition, one-on-one shoots with a model, and sessions in the theory and practice of photography. Leh, Ladakh's biggest town, will serve as our base of operations. We will also be traveling to Pangong, Lamayuru, and Nubra.
Ladakh is bound by mountains and made up of mountains. The Indus River is the backbone of this region where sheer walls of rock and ice divide the Indus Valley from Tibet and Kashmir. Isolation has preserved an almost medieval way of life, dictated by the changing seasons. This rugged region is home to one of the last undisturbed Tantric Buddhist populations on earth, and their monasteries are the greatest attraction. Most of Ladakh is over 3000 meters (9800 feet) high. Human habitation is restricted to narrow strips of greenery clinging to the rivers that drain down from mountain glaciers. Most families at the lower elevations work farms while those at higher elevations are nomadic herders. From November to May, Ladakh is almost completely cut off from the outside world. Even in summer, getting to Ladakh involves crossing the highest mountain passes in the world, or a hair-raising flight that weaves between the peaks.
This is an unparalleled opportunity to learn all aspects of nature and fashion photography in this most isolated and spectacular of locations. For registration info contact email@example.com or Prateek Batra at 011-91-88001-54446 and https://www.facebook.com/sherry.events.inc (and tell him Raymond sent you!). Special thanks to Kalpana Chatterjee for lending her photograph for use on this website! I would love to have you join me on this exciting photographic adventure!
Photography Workshop in Bolivia!
"The Faces and Places of the Bolivian Highlands!"
June 10, 2012 - June 21, 2012
Spend 12 days in scenic Bolivia with Raymond and native Bolivian Sergio, exploring and photographing Bolivia.
The photographic tour of the Bolivian Andes has been designed to cover the most iconic locations in the Bolivian highland region. There are unlimited photo opportunities in this land of native people, festivals and surreal landscapes.
The jaw-dropping landscapes you encounter from one region to another encompass the glacier-covered Andes, the vast Altiplano (similar to the Tibetan plateau), mystical Lake Titicaca and the otherworldly Salar de Uyuni as well as the cities of La Paz, Copacabana, Oruro, Uyuni and Potosi.
If you want a real experience and the space needed to make special images then Bolivia is your blank canvas. One of the highlights is sleeping in a hotel made of salt in the Salar de Uyuni! The colors and smells, the wacky and bizarre, the unique and the brazen acts of people living on the edge are all across Bolivia. This is the harvest season so there will be a lot of activity going on with people working the land and taking their goods to market – often on donkeys, llamas and on their back.
You need to be ready and shoot quickly and we’ll be constantly seeking special moments . We will put you at the right places so you can concentrate on making images, not thinking about the logistics. Whether you are a globe-trotting traveler or a first-timer, we will do our best so that you come back with images that will fill your mind with unforgettable moments and fond memories. This is a complete photographic journey, with adventure, panoramic vistas, history and real people.
