Workshop Update


Hello Fellow Photographers!

We had a great workshop this last week photographing the California and Arizona sections of Route 66. The landmarks are rapidly changing, some falling into disrepair and others disappearing all together. There was quite a bit of change from 7 months ago when I drove the route. We still found many things to photograph along the 600 mile journey.

Take a look at my gallery:

Upcoming Workshops:

The 
Alabama Hills Photo Workshop is scheduled for June 5, 6 and 7. There will be dark skies for night photography as well as sunrises, Manzanar, Keeler and more.

The 
Oregon Workshop scheduled for August 19-23. Come photograph the Portland bridges, Astoria and the Peter Iredale shipwreck.

The third annual
 North Rim Grand Canyon is on for October 10-14. October on the Kaibab Plateau will be awesome with colored Aspen, night skies, wildlife and few people. Previous classes have been sellouts. A must see!

The 
Eastern Sierra is always a great adventure and one of my favorite destinations. . There will also be autumn trees, night skies, Mono Lake, Bodie and more. 
October 16-19.

Thank you for your support and I hope to see you again!

Fact and Fiction in Modern Photography - NYT

Fact and Fiction in Modern Photography

"The most significant change in photojournalism since the birth of smartphones in the digital era is that it is no longer the news that’s important but the story. It is as subtle a change as it is monumental. Everyone has access to the news, that is, the event that happened, but it is the story, its nuances, layers, intrigues and key drivers that need better understanding. In the past we relied on images from the front line to inform us that there was indeed a situation in distant reaches of the world, but today the citizen or tourist is able to share images that inform us of those events."

"There are a lot of great pictures in the colossal new book “Congo” (Aperture, 2015), by the photographers Alex Majoli and Paolo Pellegrin: pictures of immense panoramic scope and texture, pictures of deep, elaborate landscapes and of the human dramas that play out across them, scenes of labor, scenes of commerce, scenes of festivity, and scenes of tranquility, crowd scenes and portraits, interiors and exteriors, urban, rural, and wilderness, day and night, life and death."

Photographer Who Took Iconic Vietnam Photo Looks Back, 40 Years After the War Ended



"Nick’s relationship with Vietnam is deeply personal. He’s documented the horrors of his native country at war and seen it rise from the ashes to become the vibrant country it is today. But he will never forget the events of June 8, 1972, which he recalled floating down the Mekong on the River Orchid and on our drive up Highway 1."

Worth a look!

"With Urban Flow, Magyar began experimenting with the slit-scan technique that he would become famous for. Akin to using the sensor of a flatbed scanner as a camera, the technique captures an image by stacking tens of thousands of one-pixel-width images taken in a series as subjects pass before the sensor."
