Nevada Wier and Eddie Soloway share a love for wild and remote travel destinations. Eddie makes a point of seeking out blank spots on the map, while Nevada passionately explores cultures far removed from our fast-paced world. For two evenings online, these two friends share stories, photographs, and practical advice, comparing notes on an engaging array of personal travel topics.
They delve into the process of preparation for a thoughtful photographic journey, determining where to look, how to look, what to avoid, and which equipment to carry. This conversation also considers personal expectations—will you, for example, be staying in a four-star hotel or sleeping on a wooden floor in a village home?
Eddie and Nevada chart the evolution of their aesthetic visions and examine the fluid demands of making photographs in the moment, which often require an understanding of nonverbal communication. Equally important is the ability to tread lightly on the land and, if possible, to return periodically to a special location to deepen your connections. Seeing deeply amidst the chaos and sometimes stillness of a place is essential for a thoughtful travel adventure. They also take time to reflect on the experience of living through 2020, taking stock of the gifts received and the lessons learned, including the ability to embrace Plan B.
Join two seasoned travel photographers who share an enduring friendship and a wealth of practical experience as you learn how to overcome preconceived notions about a place and come home with much more than a photograph.
A 10 to 15 minute Question and Answer session follows each daily presentation. Questions from the participants will be reviewed and a few selected during this informal wrap-up conversation.
We will meet 6:00 - 8:00 pm (Mountain Time) on Tuesday, April 6 and Thursday, April 8 (two online group sessions). Enrollment is limited to 12 participants.
Webinar software (available for no charge from Zoom.com) will be used to facilitate the class sessions. Further details will be emailed to registrants.

Santa Fe Workshops always aims to produce a high-quality experience for our online attendees. That said, variables including regional and local internet provider speeds, traffic on Zoom's servers, and your own computing hardware can contribute to a less than ideal streaming event. While we do our best to minimize the impact of these variables, they are outside the control of Santa Fe Workshops.
Please Note: During the online registration process you will be asked about housing and meals. Answer no to both questions.
For the convenience of participants, recordings of each class session are posted privately for two weeks after the end of each session. Santa Fe Workshops takes the recordings down after two weeks to protect the intellectual property of our instructors.
