The Digital Photo Workshops

Extraordinary places: Death Valley, Arches-Canyonlands, Olympic Coast, Tetons-Jackson Hole,
California Wine Country and Yosemite!

If you are looking for a great photography workshop to attend, I have one for you or actually six. It is “The Digital Photo Workshops” and I am one of the instructors. My buddy Jeff Leimbach and I have eight workshops scheduled for next year with two of the best photographers around, Dave Black and Rick Sammon. I have photographed with both of them and can tell you it was an incredible experience.

If you have ever seen a memorable photography from the Olympics it was most likely Dave Black’s image. Besides the great sport and people photography that Dave captures, he is also known for his light painting and not just small tabletop sets, but Dave has lit-up one of the mountains in Monument Valley. He has been working on a project in the Nation Park system and has lighted many of the monuments. Dave will be the guest instructor at four of our workshops this year and if you want a once in a life time photographic experience you will want to be in one of these workshops.

Rick Sammon is one of the forty “Canon Explorers of Light” in the world and one heck of a nice guy. Before working with Rick I had the opportunity to photograph with him a couple of time when he was in Tampa and had a blast and was impressed by his knowledge and willingness to share that with other people. I had a great time with Rick last year in Death Valley workshop and look forward to doing it again in Death Valley and the Wine Country.

Here is the the schedule for this year:

Death Valley with Rick Sammon Feb. 21-24
Arches/Canyonlands Parks with Dave Black April 25–28
Olympic Coast with Dave Black May 2–5
Tetons & Jackson Hole with Dave Black Sept. 26-29
Napa Valley with Rick Sammon Oct. 10–13
