Sketches of Perú: A Photographic Exploration with Cultural and Culinary Highlights
with Daniel Milnor, Adam L. Weintraub
July 9 - July 23, 2013

At the entrance of the town’s church, they pay homage to the Virgen del Carmen in song, dance, rhythm and joy. Streets, windows, doorways and alleys are lined with the faithful, who pay homage to this singularly unifying and revered idol.
Throughout our tour of Peru’s small towns and festive streets, Daniel and Adam work with participants both as a group and individually to help each of you assess what makes your personal photographic style unique. Choosing a camera and lens, evaluating a scene, crossing the language barrier, using available light, and learning how to engage the subject are all part of the learning experience.
You return from your Peru experience with the spirit, knowledge and confidence to make photographs in any location. You can anticipate working with both paid models and locals in a variety of locations, from high-altitude weaving villages to the cobbled streets of Cusco. And, of course, there’s all the fabulous food and wine along the way …
