Art Wolfe Lecture Series

Dogwoods and Douglas Fir – Image By Art Wolfe

Join me this Sunday in Chicago for Art Wolfe’s – The Art of Composition (CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS).  Art is not only a close friend but one of this country’s most recognized landscape and nature photographers.   His work is so inspiring that there is no way you can leave his lectures not wanting to pick up your camera and head out to the wilderness.  The lecture series now touring the US and soon Europe is a chance to share in Art’s adventures and learn how to improve the craft of photography.

Art has been shooting with a Phase One system for a while now.  He has created a new body of work that is so creative and incredibly inspiring it is hard to define.  You’ll get a chance to see some of the amazing images from this new body of work as well as many form his various photographic adventures from around the world.  If you are in the Chicago area or any of the other areas shown on HERE I can only say don’t miss this.

I hope to see you there – Kevin Raber – VP Phase One PODAS Workshops

PODAS Master Class

The goal of this workshop is to photograph the breathtaking desert landscapes of Namibia at three unique and beautiful locations. This will be a flying safari,. We will maximize our safari by flying from location to location. This will enable us to carry an adequate amount of camera baggage and eliminate long drives.

– This private flying safari covers fascinating attractions in Namibia and offers stunning landscape from the air.
– We will fly to three amazing destinations in southern, central and northern Namibia: Sossusvlei, Serra Cafema and the deserted mining town of Kolmanskop.
– The Namib Desert may well be the world’s oldest desert. The apricot-colored dunes at Sossusvlei are some of the most beautiful landscapes on earth. Herds of mountain zebra, gemsbok and springbok roam the area.
– In all the parks you will have the opportunity to spend quality photographic time.
– Finish on a high note in the magnificent northern landscapes along the Serra Cafema mountain range near Angola.

PODAS Ireland Is Moving Fast

Minard Castle Beach - Ireland

This posting is a bit late due to how busy we have all been on the Ireland PODAS workshop. As you can see from the earlier post I made the agenda for this PODAS leaves little time for rest.  The group has been absolutely great.  On Wednesday morning we slept in and were on the road to Dingle by 10AM.  We reached Dingle and kicked into high gear.  After checking into our rooms we enjoyed a nice lunch and then had an afternoon of fine programs.  First on deck was Steve Gosling a fine art photographer from the UK.  Steve’s program was absolutely inspiring.  His photography and approach to capturing and making the image motivated everyone.  It wasn’t long before we coined the phrase Goslled.  After Steve’s program Phase One’s own Niels Knudsen presented a program on a variety of topics including finding the sweet spot for your lens, custom color balance, and Capture One power user tips. Peter Cox our Ireland based instructor and Steve have gone above and beyond the call in working with and helping the attendees.  Check these photographers out, both are excellent and true gentlemen.  Following a wonderful dinner we headed out for a magnificent sunset shoot.  The images below and above are examples of what we did.  Minard Castle is an old castle and beautiful beach.  We enjoyed a wonderful sunset there, followed by the eclipse of the moon.  Not a bad night at all.  We returned to the hotel by 11:30 and set our alarms for 3:30 AM.  We’ll be heading out to Connor Pass for sunrise, followed by a full day of shooting.  Check back later for Thursday’s blog entry.
