Today the Phase One team heads out to Iceland. Arriving early in the morning Friday the team consisting of Murray Elliott, Jon Gilbert and myself (Kevin Raber) will pick up the vans and head to the hotel where we will be doing the workshop kick-off. The workshop officially starts on Sunday but we will be using the next few days to check in over a million dollars worth of photo gear that the workshop attendees will be using. Each participant will be provided a Phase One P65+ DF camera with a 75-150mm zoom lens. A perfect set up for shooting the magnificent landscapes of Iceland. Each van will have a bank of lenses from 28mm to 300mm for attendees to use. We will be working out of 5 different vehicles with over 30 people. These include 23 attendees, 5 Phase One staff and 4 world class instructors. There isn’t a workshop anywhere that not only offers attendees the world’s best camera to use but also provides meals, rooms, transportation and a fun learning experience.
Over the coming days I will do my best to post regular updates about our workshop – adventure. While we will be shooting with P65+ systems many of the blog photos will be shot with smaller format cameras and even iPhone as we can post from the field and do so quicker using these cameras. So, please understand that. We will do a posting of final images after the workshop of attendees work. Our goal with this blog is to share the workshop with you as we are having it. On some days we may not have good internet coverage so there may be periods where the blog isn’t updated. We will do our best though to catch up when we do get good signals.
So stay tuned the adventure begins.
