Chicago is the birthplace of the skyscraper and filled with incredible architectural gems from Frank Lloyd Wright to Frank Gehry and beyond. After a great fire in 1871, Chicago had to start from scratch, and aimed for the most ambitious buildings of its time. This started a movement to push boundaries and be on the forefront of architecture which hasn’t slowed down, even to this day. You will have the opportunity to photograph the many fascinating skyscrapers of Chicago like the Willis Tower, Aqua Tower and more as well as famous sculptures like Cloud Gate and the Flamingo. You will also have the opportunity to take an architectural river cruise to take in all the sites and learn the history of this great city. Spring is an excellent time to visit and capitalize on favorable weather. In addition to photography, Chicago has in incredible culinary scene and we will schedule dinners to capitalize on the restaurant highlights. Different techniques will be covered to create original images of iconic scenes by using multiple exposure photography as well as black and white processing. The workshop will include multiple processing sessions, transportation during the workshop and a copy of my eBook, The Complete Guide to Gear for the Landscape Photographer. Maximum of 5 persons.

Spitsbergen - An Arctic Adventure
2019 Dates: September 17th - 27th: NOW BOOKING
After the success of our Spitsbergen tour in 2013 and four more tours in 2016, 2017 and 2018, we are lucky enough to have secured the M/S Stockholm for a intimate tour again in September 2019 with photography leaders Antony Spencer and Justin Reznick. We will have the whole ship (a maximum of 12 places) and therefore have free-reign to go where we wish! (Although some decisions may be affected by weather, ice, animals) We cannot express enough that for a team of landscape photographers to have all the decision making on a vessel around Spitsbergen is a great opportunity. We can prioritise the landscape options we wish to visit and also capitalise on the big wildlife such as polar bears and walrus. The MS Stockholm is a small ship which will enable us to get close to both the landscape and shoreline of Spitsbergen and also more excitingly big mammals such as polar bears providing fantastic photographic opportunities. At this time of year in September we will have darkness which will provide us with sunrises and sunsets (something that only happens for a couple of months each year) and also a chance of witnessing and photographing the northern lights during the nights. This tour is run through Light & Land and can be booked via their website: Light & Land
