Upcoming Talks and Workshops

Guy Tal Workshop

October 9-12, 2014: Eastern Sierra, California

In association with Jack Graham

This 3½ day workshop will not only get you to one of the greatest scenic locations, but serve as an enjoyable instructional period. We will be photographing the vistas and rock formations of the Alabama Hills, Mono Lake and the White Mountains. We’ll explore the ghost town, Bodie, just north of Lee Vining, as well as the oldest living species on the planet, the Ancient Bristlecone Pines, in the White Mountains east of Bishop. In addition, some special remote locations are on the itinerary featuring beautiful mountain streams and aspen groves, sure to be in full grandeur when we arrive. This is the prime time of the year for fall color. Glowing aspens reflecting in sub-alpine lakes are plentiful. There’s nothing like fall in the Eastern Sierra!

October 14-16, 2014: Eastern Sierra Master Class, California

In association with Jack Graham

Based out of Lee Vining, this workshop places emphasis on image processing techniques using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. We will use the spectacular scenery in the area (Mono Lake, Lundy Canyon, and more) for short field sessions to augment indoor classes focused on creative processing techniques. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops loaded with Lightroom and Photoshop (trial versions can be downloaded before the class for those who do not own the software). This workshop may be taken on its own, or as an extension to the location-focused Eastern Sierra workshop listed above, which covers many more locations.

April 20-25, 2015: Spring in Capitol Reef National Park, Utah

In association with Mountain Light Gallery.

This is an intermediate-to-advanced workshop aimed at photographers who wish to venture beyond the documentary, representational image and into the realm of creative, artistic and personally expressive landscape photography. Rather than just a tour of photogenic places, our emphasis will be on evolving creative skills to be applied both in the field and in the digital studio. Some of our time will be spent on location, exploring in and around one of the most remote parks in the continental United States. In addition, we’ll spend a considerable amount of time in the classroom covering topics ranging from visualization and composition, image critique, and all the way to hands-on image processing techniques using Adobe® Lightroom and Photoshop.
