Creativity and Travel Photography
with Nevada Wier
September 15 - September 19, 2014

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

“Nevada gave great presentations, was so knowledgeable, and was such a good teacher! I loved the constructive criticism I received. I learned more in this class than any other I have taken!” Linda Rose, past participant, Creativity and Travel Photography with Nevada Wier

Photographing on the move in foreign countries requires the combination of technical expertise, culture competence, intuitive awareness, curiosity and a dash of panache. This workshop with Nevada Wier tackles the challenges of photographing with creative intent while on the move with a digital camera.

With a lively blend of lectures, discussions, and outdoor assignments, Nevada discusses how to combine technical, practical, and creative aspects of travel photography in order to get an image that elevates itself above the usual travel clichés. We discuss equipment and digital concerns in different travel and outdoor environments, ways to approach and photograph people, sensitivity to cross-cultural issues in foreign countries, and tips (both theoretical and practical) on using natural light as well as fill-flash. The week includes group and individual critiques, personal assignments, and great fun in the field.

The emphasis is on elevating your creative vision and expanding your photographic technique, all while remaining fleet-footed and agile. The historic town of Santa Fe and its environs provide the ideal environment for the travel photographer. Santa Fe offers the opportunity to photograph a diversely cultural community and a broad spectrum of natural environment. We also photograph at the New Mexico State Fair in Albuquerque. These inspiring locales are the perfect, dramatic locations for our photographic adventures on the move.
