Adventure in the Dolomites, Early July Session 2019 (One Spot Now Open!)
July 1 - July 7$3995
With co-leaders Erin Babnik and Chip Phillips
The itinerary of this unique trip will take us to a variety of magnificent alpine locations in the Dolomites of northern Italy, complete with six nights of accommodation, full board, airport transfer, and transportation between locations. We will spend four of our nights in beautifully situated alpine huts that allow the experience of backpacking without the necessity to carry much more than your camera gear. The other two nights we will stay in single-occupancy rooms in four-star hotels. On the final full day of the workshop, we will hold a substantial post-processing session in the comfort of a hotel conference room, followed by a farewell dinner.
This all-inclusive, adventure program will be a rare opportunity to get out of the valleys and into the mountains to photograph some of the most spectacular, craggy peaks anywhere in the world, along with the lakes, streams, wildflowers, and dramatic atmosphere that typically surrounds them. Participants will have the benefit of a small group and two instructors, allowing you to get all of the help that you need with creative mentoring, field technique, and post-processing.
This trip is designed for people with a spirit of adventure who want to experience and photograph some of the more remote locations of the Dolomites with instructors who place a high value on creative expression. The focus is on helping you to create outstanding photos that speak to your own experiences and interests. Because we will be doing some hiking during the workshop in order to reach wilderness destinations, a moderate level of physical fitness is necessary (see the Physical Requirements section of the workshop brochure for more information).
