Dolomites Extended Edition 2018 with Erin Babnik and Alexandre Deschaumes (One Spot Now Available!)
August 1 - August 11$4895
With co-leaders Erin Babnik and Alexandre Deschaumes
The itinerary of this unique trip will take us to a variety of magnificent alpine locations in the Dolomites of northern Italy, complete with ten nights of accommodation, full board, airport transfer, and transportation between locations. We will spend seven 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 three nights, we will stay in single-occupancy rooms in four-star hotels. This 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. On the first day of the workshop we will hold an introductory seminar on composition and creativity. We will also have two substantial post-processing sessions in the comfort of a hotel conference room, one session midway through the workshop and one on the final full day.
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. Whether you are just getting started in photography or are already a seasoned pro, we’ll put you in the right place at the right time and will provide you with whatever guidance you require to get unique shots of the Dolomites for your portfolio. 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 tab on the full workshop listing at www.erinbabnik.com for more information).
