Course Description

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 to make 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, photographing in low light, and tips (both theoretical and practical) on using natural light as well as fill-flash. The week includes group and individual image reviews, personal assignments, and great fun in the field.

Nevada’s emphasis is on elevating your creative vision and expanding your photographic technique, all while remaining fleet-footed and agile. The historic city of Santa Fe, Nevada’s hometown, and its environs provide the ideal environment for the travel photographer. “The City Different” offers the opportunity to photograph a diverse cultural community and a broad spectrum of natural environment. These inspiring locales are the perfect, dramatic locations for our photographic adventures on the move.
