During Momenta’s workshops, which are a collaboration with Leica Camera, each student is paired with a nonprofit organization for the duration of the workshop to produce a photo story or package of documentary work on their outreach efforts. The nonprofits range from schools, orphanages, hospitals, animal shelters, advocacy and arts organizations. Students on these workshops have the opportunity to shoot with a Leica M camera, which also features HD video capabilities. Students truly get the documentary experience in the field while having 1-on-1 mentoring sessions every day with an instructor for at least an hour.

Within The Frame Photographic Adventures 

Within The Frame Adventures are about the passionate discovery and photography of people, place, and culture. They emphasize the importance of going slow, lingering, experiencing, absorbing, savoring, and taking the time necessary for the excitement of the new and exotic to blend with an understanding and appreciation of the surroundings in order to find one’s personal vision. Here are some highlights for the upcoming year lead by Jeffrey Chapman, Elizabeth Opalenik, and Winslow Lockhart:

    You can find my 2015 workshops including Night Photography in San Francisco, Creative Flower Photography at the Maine Media Workshops, and Digital Black & White at the Heidelberg Summer School of Photography listed with links for more info on my Workshops & Events page.

    I have a photo trip planned in June to the Imperial cities of Eastern Europe, and another one in the autumn to Cinque Terre in Italy.

    My goals in leading photography workshops are to have fun, be thoughtful, teach and learn, and to help participants grow as photographers to become the most creative they can be.

    I’ve designed a 3-in-1 Beginners Photography Bootcamp, basic details below, more details at the web link. If you’re around London during February or March it would be great to have you along…

    Q. What’s included in this ‘3-in-1’ workshop?

    A. First we’ll begin with an informative 1hr presentation on exposure and metering. There’ll be plenty of opportunity to ask questions, after all this isn’t a lecture. Knowing how to shoot on the manual mode will set you up for the rest of the day.

    Secondly, there’s nothing quite like putting theory into practice and the middle section of the day will involve shooting the pictures you want to shoot with advice and feedback as and when you need it. Throughout the two hour photo walk we’ll also discuss the important topic of composition.

    Finally, if we don’t digitally process our images we’ll never tease the full potential out of our files. Using your tablet or iPad and free software we’ll go through how photographers asses their images and decide what adjustments to make.

    Hey all! We are stoked to be hosting a three-day wedding photography workshop, November 10th to the 12th, in my home-base, the beautiful island of Aruba!

    To photograph a wedding takes a lot: quick-thinking, improvisation, adaptability and technical know-how.

    You have to be prepared to be a photographer. And a therapist. A family counselor. A seamstress. A director. A comedian.

    And sometimes, while we are busy being and doing all of those things for our clients, we forget to make sure we are also doing those things for ourselves. We neglect to feed our own spirit and passion.

    This workshop is a blend of feeding your creative monster and balancing the crazy excited, wonderful whirlwind that is photographing weddings, so you can find that ideal mix of vibrant artistry and inner zen.

    We’ll be combining tips and tricks on how to feed both your body and your soul, as well as exploring the insanely wonderful island of Aruba to create some kick ass images and immersing ourselves in the local culture (and cuisine!).

    Our goal is to have you leave Wanderlust, stoked to photograph your next wedding, full of energy.

    And newfound creativity.

    A healthy perspective.

    A peaceful mind.

    And a tan. 🙂

    My husband and I had the most amazing experience on our recent photo Cuba trip!! Photographer ‘pag’ Paganelli showed us all the in and outs of the country while amusing us with his anecdotes and stories about his travels. He is a total kick, but much more importantly, he gave us access to many amazing places that are off-limits for regular tourists. We went into government chambers, saw a local cockfight and even helped to roast a pig (which we then ate for dinner).
    I took amazing photos in color, my husband shot mostly in black-and-white, and pag worked with us in both digital and film. He is a throwback to the era of film but also extremely knowledgeable on current technologies since he is not only a visual arts photographer but also has a hugely successful editorial and commercial career. And he’s so much FUN!

    Paganelli knows his way around the sometimes in penetrable seeming country. He has been visiting Cuba for decades, and is top notch editorial professional in the states. He gave us an amazing combination of Cuban insider as well as photography instructor. And we even got to meet some of his Cuban relatives.

    I cannot tell you how much I loved my experience traveling through Cuba with Pag. My husband and I highly recommend this wild adventure and beautiful artistic opportunity to all levels of photographers from professional to novice were looking to capture ‘The real Cuba’…. And you better go soon, because it is getting more packed with tourists by the second.

    For the 4th year I will be leading Timelapse Moab, a series of advanced night sky time lapse photography workshops in Moab, Utah coming up at the end of May. Each year these workshops sell out, so this year I have added a third workshop designed for those that love photography and timelapse.

    May 27-31, 2015
    4-Night DSLR night-sky time lapse photography workshop open to photographers of all skill levels.

    June 1-4, 2015
    4-Night advanced DSLR night-sky time lapse photography and motion control workshop for those that want to take their time lapses to the next level

    June 6-11, 2015
    6-Night advanced time lapse and night sky photography workshop with more in-field instruction and more locations. Classroom sessions will focus on post production of stills and time lapse sequences.

    Workshop attendees come for the education, but it turns in to an experience that keeps them coming back to the area. Moab, UT is home to a gold-tier night-sky park (Canyonlands National Park) with some of the darkest skies in the world. The location also includes Arches National Park, the Canyons and Cliffs of Dead Horse Point State Park, La Sal Mountains, and the breathtaking views of the Colorado River as it cuts through the massive sand stone rock.
