Join Frans for an intensive creative experience, including field trips to some of his favorite places around the Monterey Bay.
Join Frans for a workshop experience that covers prime photographic locations from Santa Cruz to Monterey, including the scenic coastal gem, Point Lobos. Participants will spend two nights in Santa Cruz, and two nights in Monterey, with easy sunrise and sunset access to the best destinations. This workshop is a natural choice for photographers who want to improve their techniques and find ways to express a more personal vision. Frans will introduce participants to different ways of interpreting the natural world with a camera and will share his unique approach to photography, which applies creative innovations to the traditions of visual storytelling. Each participant will have the opportunity to create a picture story during the course of the workshop and have images critiqued by Frans during group sessions. Instruction will also cover digital camera techniques and workflow topics, with presentations by our team of expert assistants, Jason Bradley, Kevin Osborn, and Paul Zaretsky, all professional photographers with a wide range of skills, who provide one-on-one assistance both in the field and in the classroom.
Enrollment limited to 15 participants.
Workshop Fee: $2500
Requirements: A digital camera (DSLR preferred) and related equipment for field sessions. A laptop with digital workflow software of your choice is also required.
Fee Includes: Presentations, teaching, and field sessions by Frans and his expert assistants; Welcome Reception on Wednesday evening; Continental Breakfast and Lunch each day; Group Dinner Thursday night. Participants are responsible for their own transportation during the workshop, local accommodation, and meals not specified above. The Mission Inn offers a special group rate discount for the two nights when we are in Santa Cruz. Our classroom sessions in Santa Cruz will be held at the Long Marine Lab’s Seymour Center, overlooking the ocean. For the two nights in Monterey, we have a block of rooms reserved at a special rate at the Lighthouse Lodge, where our classroom sessions will be held in the “Monarch Room.” Early hotel bookings are strongly advised! Carpooling for field trips is popular--and encouraged.
