The first workshop is going to be in the Grand Tetons, a repeat of the 2010 nature trip. Details are expect to be finalized by the second half of January. As of timing, without fixed dates as of yet, we’ll visit the Tetons in the latter part of May. By then weather conditions will be fine but we’ll still beat the vacationing crowd that will follow later. We’ll be based in Jackson Hole in a fine lodge and will conduct our daily outings from there. The duration of the workshop will be five days. Weather permitting one day will be allocated to a side trip to Yellowstone. Please contact me well in advance for information and availability. Provisional bookings will be accepted from now on. Final cost is to be determined upon chosen accommodation but I can give you a very close estimate immediately. This is a great destination for both scenic and wildlife photography.
There will be a Backroads in the Scottish Borders workshop in early spring. I have had a trip to the area in 2015 to find some interesting places to stay and visit. The Borders area is full of character, daffodils and tulips flower here abundantly both wild and cultivated as early as mid March. I had my exploratory trip hire in the third week of March, the weather was often drizzly but mild and great for photography. I did most of my driving on country roads to see what the regular tourists miss while driving in the fast lane of the motorways. I found even the most common farmhouses and scenes full of character and exciting for the nature photographer. The dry heather mixed with emerging green and dotted with sheep on the hillsides is extremely picturesque.
Two workshops are planned for Algonquin Park. Camping style like this year which was great fun. The camp sites have electrical hookups and a clean and convenient shower and bathroom facility is available. We’ll spend five nights in the park and will conduct daily treks that will allow us for both scenic photography and wildlife encounters. Moose sightings are frequent and the odd fox or bear might be spotted too. The trails and canoe routes will be chosen based on the capability of the group, so nobody will be left behind.
The first workshop will be in mid June, the second one is planned for late September. Exact dates will be decided in January when the park’s reservation site gets activated for the year. The summer workshop is great for wildlife, butterflies, flowers, and all sorts of close-up photography. The September one is for fall colours and scenery with bull moose getting into their prime shape. Please contact me for further info and planned dates. Provisional bookings are accepted now.
