Ladakh: The Last True Remaining Tibet
September 1 - September 15, 2012

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Situated in the rain shadow of the Indian Himalaya, Ladakh occupies the westernmost edge of the Tibetan Plateau. Millenia-old traditions of Tibetan Buddhism have thrived here without the interruption or repression found in Tibet iteself. In Ladakh, Buddhist culture is alive and well—and vibrantly displayed through the dozens of spectacular monasteries, frequent festivals, and warmhearted, open nature of the Ladakhi people.

On our Ladakh adventure we will traverse an amazing range of landscapes: wind-swept desert and sand dunes, brilliantly colored rock formations, lush valleys and immmense sapphire-colored lakes. These awe-inspiring vistas are dotted with traditional villages and ancient monasteries, which we explore both by road and on foot. This journey is a true adventure and a photographer’s paradise. There is an optional post-Ladakh extension to visit Agra and the Taj Mahal.

This workshop is open to all photographers interested in developing a more distinctive, personal style of imagery that transcends the boundaries of mainstream “Travel Photography.” We will discuss technical, aesthetic and cultural considerations that will enable you to create more intimate and authentic images—both here and in other “exotic” locations.

Participants may choose film or digital capture, with digital preferred to allow for frequent feedback and critique. A portfolio is not required, however a working knowledge of your camera in manual mode is essential.

Group size limited to 12.

Includes tuition and land cost only. For complete information, visit www.HimalayanOdyssey.net or call (800) 970-5904. A $500 discount is offered for early registration (by April 15, 2012). Please mention that you learned about this opportunity through Santa Fe Photographic Workshops.
