Patagonia Adventure IV Comes To An End

Ian and I ended our Epic Patagonia Photo Workshop this afternoon and are now resting comfortably in Calafate, Argentina. I am flying home tomorrow morning and images will be forthcoming. We experienced some of the best light we’ve ever seen down here during the past ten days. But then again, Patagonian light is always amazing. To keep up with some of the recent images from this trip, be sure to subscribe to this blog so you don’t miss a thing.

Patagonia 2014 is scheduled for March 10-19, 2014 and we have taken registrations already. Let me know if you have any questions about next year’s event.

Featured Workshop: The Outer Banks Experience, March 8 – 10, 2013

It’s that time of year to begin planning my workshop schedule for next year. The 2013 workshop schedule is almost complete except for the additions of Saint Augustine, Florida in May, Acadia National Park, Maine in October and another great Smoky Mountains, Tennessee workshop in late October as well. There might be a few surprises thrown in at the last minute but, for the most part, that just about does it.

The featured workshop this month is the Outer Banks Experience on March 8 – 10, 2013. There is a good reason why I come back to the Outer Banks of North Carolina year after year: It’s an amazing place to photograph with sand, water, and sky in almost every direction, four lighthouses, and prolific pelagic wildlife.

If you have ever wanted to come to the Outer Banks and Cape Hatteras, North Carolina for photography, this is the time to do it. If you register before January 1, 2013 and mention this blog post when you register, you will receive a 10% discount on the tuition. You can get more information and register here.

Here are some images from past workshops in the Outer Banks and Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Enjoy!

Great Smoky Mountains Gallery – Autumn 2012

I just returned from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park after 8 days of leading workshops, one-on-one instructional sessions, and some personal shooting as well. Here is a small sample of just some of the autumn color I was able to capture last week.

Just click on one of the thumbnails to see the larger image.

Not the scene that comes to mind when one thinks of Patagonia. No sheer granite spires and majestic mountains, but because of the ever-present winds, you will find some of the most fascinating clouds formations anywhere. Sometimes, it even coincides with some incredible light.

Katmai 2012!

Starting today, Ian Plant and myself will begin accepting reservations for our annual Alaska Coastal Brown Bear photo instructional tour for 2012 – August 20-24 to be exact. This year we are moving the tour from one exceptional location, Lake Clark National Park, to perhaps the best destination in the world for viewing and photographing brown bears, Katmai National Park. The Brooks River and famous Brooks Falls, plus Margot Creek are some of our destinations. Our host is the Katmai Adventure Lodge, located on the wild and scenic Naknek River. Each morning, after a hearty breakfast at the lodge, we will board a floatplane and fly off to a remote location in Katmai to spend the day photographing brown bears, bald eagles, and other Alaskan wildlife. Still, the bears are the stars here…

There is more information on my website, Coastal Brown Bears of Katmai Alaska or you can drop me an e-mail with questions or additional information.
