Granada: Crown Jewel of Nicaragua
with Carlan Tapp
February 15 - February 22, 2014

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Founded in 1525 and believed to be the first European city established on the mainland Americas, Granada is an architectural and cultural treasure. This fascinating, undiscovered city is the focus of a journey led by and for photographers. Carlan Tapp (lead instructor) and Morgan Smith are seasoned Nicaraguan travelers who are excited to share their knowledge and love of this colonial gem.

Carlan first traveled to Nicaragua in 2009 to photograph for an educational NGO. He discovered proud and welcoming families and rich, magnificent landscape--an authentic cultural experience untouched by tourism. Granada’s beautiful lake shoreline, archipelago of 365 small islands, vibrant street life and markets, and surrounding countryside (home to more species of birds and trees than the entire European continent) are all photographic subjects to explore and discover during this extraordinary adventure.

Nicaraguans are proud, friendly, and welcoming, yet their country has limited economic opportunities. Fortunately, Nicaragua enjoys an impressive level of private humanitarian assistance, encouraged by the gracious nature of the people as well as the safety of travel within the country. One of the most rewarding aspects of this trip is the access our group has to NGOs that provide support to locals in need. Visits to a barrio shelter, a veterinary clinic, and a program that feeds street children are highlights. A portion of proceeds from our trip will be donated to these charities.

If you’re looking for an authentic cultural experience to not only transform your photography but also make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate this adventure is tailor-made for you. Join Carlan and Morgan for a trip bound to open your eyes and your heart.

$2,695 per person. Price includes tuition, double accommodations for 7 nights (add $600 for a single), all breakfasts and two group dinners, all ground transportation, and donations to the humanitarian charities visited.
