Las Vegas, USA (sold out)
Max. number of students
Under this emblematic theme, I would like to offer you all a travel photography workshops series that will take place in the USA in 2018. I would like to invite those of you who speak either English or Polish, since the workshops will be conducted in both languages simultaneously: Polish and English.
The workshops will take place in various locations, each one of them captivating and diverse. What is more, we will have no trouble whatsoever in photographing the locals, engaging in exuberant events.
I would like to invite 10 photography enthusiasts and/or professionals for an unforgettable journey on which we will together take up the gauntlet of the photographic challenges of this magnificent place:
We will travel between the old and new parts of Las Vegas in a hired van. The two areas of the city differ from each other, yet equally deserve becoming familiar with the sound of our cameras’ shutters.
To fully enjoy the Nevada’s charm we plan to visit the vast areas surrounding the city at least a couple of times. One of these areas – the Valley of Fire – is a magical place with colourful and spectacular rock structures that will leave speechless everyone who will get to see and photograph them. Second expedition will lead us along the widely-admired road – Alien Area in the deserts of Nevada. This area is known for various local folk tales about supernatural phenomena. I cannot rule out a brief meeting with an UFO, neither can I guarantee that it will for sure be a part of our programme.
As a result the workshop will combine the best of the two worlds. First – the promiscuous and engulfing world of casinos and grandiosity. Second – the immaculate, picturesque images of the unspoilt, monumental nature.
During our time in Vegas, not only will we enjoy ourselves in the scintillating ambience of the city, but we will also work on our photographic prowess. We will gather every morning to watch, discuss, critically assess, and select the photos, which we took the previous day. All this to make sure that we improve our photography expertise every day.
