For photographers who are ready to take the next step in their photography there is simply no better way than getting up close and personal with photographers who have been there before. That’s the basic formula of Rich Clarkson’s Travel Photography at the Summit. For 27 years Rich has been following this formula, producing his famous series of workshops by pulling together a faculty of experienced photographers and mixing them up with dedicated students. It’s a very effective recipe.
This July I’ll be joining Rich in Santa Barbara for his brand new travel photography workshop, along with old friends including Dave Black, Jay Maisel, George Olson, Rick Rickman, and Bob Smith. (I’m a lucky guy to be able to call these legendary professionals “old friends.”) Students will get hands on shooting experience, critiques, classroom lessons, and personal guidance. This format really gives you a chance to rub elbows and pick brains.
For my part I’ll be laying out the process of shooting stories for National Geographic Traveler on assignment, from writing proposals, doing research, field techniques and editing workflow. When I teach I try my best to follow the no BS principal of telling it like it is. You want to know how the travel photography business works, then come to Santa Barbara.
You can get all the detail here. See you there.
