Oregon: Along The Coast and Waterfalls May 8 - 16, 2013
I’m happy to announce a workshop in Oregon to be held May 8 - 16, 2013.
Oregon is a fabulous location for photographers, well known for its beautiful beaches,
rainforests and waterfalls. We’ll be photographing in dramatic locations including Cannon Beach,
Ecola State Park, Cape Perpetua, Bandon Beach, Shore Acres State Park, Silver Falls State Park
and the Columbia River Gorge. We will also photograph the lyrical Japanese Gardens in Portland.
Our focus will be on the photography, however we may have some midday time to review our
images. Laptops are encouraged for this part of the workshop.
The workshop is designed for a group of 8-‐11 people. It is assumed that everyone will have a
working knowledge of their camera and the ability to use Lightroom or Adobe Bridge to organize and
share their pictures.
The workshop fee is $1395 and includes all photography activities. Additional charges, not included
in the workshop fee, would be for transportation, lodging, meals, park fees ($5 per vehicle in the
state parks), and other items of a personal nature.
Rooms have been reserved at nice hotels in each location. A full itinerary is included in this
document. My estimate of hotel charges would be $1100 including taxes and breakfasts. All have
free wifi. Room sharing can be arranged. There is a direct flight from Dulles to Portland with a
current fare of $510. Vehicle sharing will be coordinated.

Western Ireland: Connemara, CountyClare, and The Aran Islands August 31-Sept 8, 2013
Sold out! Please contact Eliot if you would be interested in the waiting list for 2013, or if you would be interested in early notification for a similar workshop in 2014..
Ireland has so much to offer: history, myth, tradition, music, and fascinating scenes everywhere. This will be an opportunity to photograph the natural beauty and moods
of the land as well as delve into Ireland's history and mysteries.
We begin in Connemara in the far west of Co. Galway. Oscar Wilde said, "Connemara is a savage beauty" and we’ll spend three days exploring the beautiful land of the Twelve Bens. Next we’ll go to the largest Aran Island, Inishmore. The Aran Islands are off the west coast of Ireland, about a 45 minute ferry ride from Galway. They are rich in Irish history, sites of early monastic churches, stone forts and sacred sites. In addition to traditional cottages, and iconic stone walls separating fields, you will encounter some of the most breath-taking land and seascapes. And then we’ll visit County Clare, home of traditional Irish music. We’ll spend three days in Co.Clare which includes two days exploring The Burren, a rocky landscape filled with sacred sites, standing stones, market towns, and even a locally known fairy ring.
Our accommodations have been chosen for their high regard by travelers and their proximity to locations that we will photograph. Our ground travel will be by private coach and scheduled ferry to the Aran’s.
The workshop is designed for 8-11 participants. The workshop fee is $3,195 and includes accommodations (except the final evening at Shannon airport), all breakfasts, six evening meals, group transportation after arrival in Ireland, all entry fees, and photography opportunities. The workshop price is based on current exchange rates for the Euro. The rates have been stable, however, should the rate fluctuate significantly, a surcharge would be required.
Additional costs include airfare to Shannon, Ireland, personal purchases, room service, all lunches, two dinners, alcoholic drinks, and individual transportation other than group travel, and the last evenings lodging (to leave flexibility for those who might extend their stay.)

Death Valley - Oct 20-25, 2013
Death Valley is an iconic location for photographers famous for it’s unique geology and landscape features. We’ll be photographing in such well known locations as Badwater, Zabrieskie Point, Mesquite Dunes, Golden Canyon,Aguereberry Point and more.
Each day we’ll photograph in the early and late light, which is best to bring out the drama of Death Valley. Mid day we have a conference room reserved to review our images. Laptops are encouraged for this part of the workshop.
The workshop fee is $1195 and includes all photography activities. Additional charges, not included in the workshop fee, would include transportation, lodging, meals, park admission, and other items of a personal nature.
Rooms have been reserved at the Furnace Creek Ranch, which is in the heart of our photographic activities.
Travel is very convenient in and out of Las Vegas followed by an easy 2 hour drive to Furnace Creek.
