►►SORRY, THIS WORKSHOP WILL NOT BE RUNNING.

If you have ever wanted to spend some time traveling in one of the most interesting, photogenic places on earth, this is your chance to do it! As added incentive, Sean McGann has been working in Burma since 2007 and he considers this his favorite place to photograph in the world.

Myanmar (or Burma) offers, at least for the moment, one last look at pre-globalization Asia. Newly emerging from decades of isolation, Myanmar retains a way of life that has changed little while its neighbors in Southeast Asia have rapidly modernized.

It is estimated that there are more than 130 different ethnic groups in Burma, the geographic crossroads of the Asian Subcontinent, China and India. This enormous variety of culture, the vibrant mix of ancient, colonial and modern history, and some of the world’s warmest people, create a visually stunning environment for photographing. Imagine men in shimmering longyis, temples rising out of palm-toddy fields, teeth stained red with beetle nut, and faces painted gold with thanakha.

This workshop offers 9 full days in-country, with visits to many of Burma’s most iconic settings: Yangon; the solid-gold encrusted spires of the Schwedagon Pagoda complex; the temple-studded plains of Bagan, Mandalay; and the sublime beauty of Inle Lake.

All along the way you play a dynamic role in determining your goals for the workshop, and Sean works with you to develop custom-tailored assignments to match these goals. The workshop includes constructive review sessions of your work in progress.
