Looking back at 2012, we had a crazy busy year doing six photo tours, six photo workshops and nine photo talks. No wonder we had to take December off to recuperate!
We have reduced the number of tours, talks and workshops this year so we have more time for creative projects and our own photography but the events we are holding are super cool. One of our favourite workshops from 2012 was the Badlands, Buicks and Old Buildings photography workshop held out of St. Ann Ranch Historic Site in Trochu Alberta. Everything from the historic 1903 townsite, to the ghosts in the mansion, the old farmsteads, the Red Deer River badlands at Dry Island Buffalo Jump, the garden at the Arboretum, the wind turbines and cropland, the crazy nights light-painting, the boneyard of Buicks (and other models of vehicles at the wrecking yard), the fantastic hosts, the great food, the critiques and instructional sessions, and best of all the participants made the 2012 a blast. We are proud to offer Badlands, Buicks and Old Buildings again in 2013. To learn more about the event simply click here.
On workshops, Samantha and I are busy helping participants with their photos. Only during directed student assignments is there a little time for us to snap a photo or two of our beautiful surroundings. Here is a small collection of shots I made during the 2012 workshop. Some of the photos I even shot retro style with film (they are marked below for fun). If you are interested in this workshop, don’t wait too long. We keep the group size small to maximize your learning. We hope to see some of you there this year!
