In less than 24 hours we will begin our PODAS workshop on the True North in the Kimberley region of Austrailia. This will be an amazing adventure. Here is the True North at dock prepping for our trip. We won’t be able to post much during the trip. Here is the link to the True North Facebook page. You may be able to find daily pictures of our activities there.https://www.facebook.com/northstarcruises
The PODAS workshop in Kimberley starts next Saturday. The team is heading off soon to do the prep work for what promises to be a fabulous workshop. We have shipped 30 some camera systems, lenses and support gear to Australia that will be waiting there when we get there. Some folks have to carry their gear though. Take a look at what Kevin carries on a trip like this by reading an article on Luminous Landscape, What Is In Kevin’s Bag.
Postings from this workshop most likely won’t happen until the workshop is over. We will be cruising with no cell or internet connection and even when we get off the boat we are unsure what kind of connection we will have. So we will accumulate the posts and make them as soon as we have a good uplink.
Sorry for the delay in posting our final post from the Tuscany PODAS workshop. Lots going on. We had a terrific workshop and saw a lot of Tuscany. We spent time in the countryside shooting broad landscapes and then shooting in villages capturing the essence of the people and community. We had a terrific day in Sienna too. This was a group made up of photographers from Israel, Germany, Canada, US, UK, Russia, India, Spain and UK. It amazes me on these workshops that the passion of photography can bridge and differences between countries. We could not have done this workshop without Art Wolfe and Hans Kruse our instructors. Art Wolfe mad several presentations that inspired us to see differently. On the last night we did a slide show with everyone’s images and you could see the influence that Art had. Art will be with us in a few weeks when we embark on the Kimberley PODAS adventure in Australia. I hope you enjoy these images. We should have the 2014 workshops posted by mid-summer.
