Svalbard The Polar Bear Adventure

The Quest

 August 5 – 15th, 2020

It’s time once again to book one of our most popular trips.  I am joined by Master Photographer and friend Peter Eastway.  Together we will lead you on an adventure of a lifetime as we traverse the Svalbard Polar Region on the quest to spot and photograph polar bears as well as other wildlife including walruses.  We will also witness glaciers and incredible landscapes.  We will have complete info available soon.  Mark your calendar and drop me an email if you are interested in joining this workshop [email protected].

Back From Iceland

I am now back in the office and in catch up mode.  The Luminous-Landscape workshop I just finished running in Iceland was a success.  I did this workshop with my long time friend Daniel Bergmann who is one of the premier guides for Iceland.  He is also a great photographer and wildlife expert.

Iceland has gotten quite crowded with tourists over the last several years.  While this is good for the country economically it is a burden on many visitors as there are now so many people.  On our trips, we won’t even go near the tourist spots.  Too many buses and crazy people.  Instead, we travel to the remote and more picturesque areas of Iceland that tourists don’t visit.   This year we visited some places I haven’t visited before.  The bottom line if I came home with a ton of nice images.  Some of which I share below.

I used a Fuji XT2 with a wide variety of lenses to capture these photos.

Phase One Joins The New Zealand Workshop

To make our workshop New Zealand even more appealing, Phase One has come aboard and will offer any attendee who would like the opportunity to shoot with a Phase One camera during the workshop.  They will provide a complete camera system along with a bank of Phase One lenses, at no charge.  This is a unique opportunity to capture these amazing landscape locations with a state of the art medium format camera.  If you have never experienced a file from a Phase One system you’ll be in for a real surprise.  A Phase One representative will be on the workshop to make sure you experience the most from this opportunity.

The Palouse Workshop is underway.  This workshop is a PODAS workshop facilitated by Rockhopper Workshops and Luminous-Landscape.  What this means is that Phase One is providing everyone on the workshop a camera system to use plus classroom tutorials on the Capture One workflow.  We have a great line up of attendees. Kevin Raber and Jeff Schewe are instructors.  Andrew Warman from Phase One is providing technical and logistical support.   Check back through out the week as we update the blog with our activities during this workshop.

We have two photographic expeditions to Antarctica this coming winter, January 26 – February 4, 2015 and January 31 – February 9, 2015. These will be lead by Kevin Raber and five of the world’s greatest instructor / photographers; Art Wolfe, Christian Fletcher, Charlie Cramer, Joe Cornish. Katrin Eismann and Jackie Ranken.

Now, due to a change of scheduling, Michael Reichmann, founder of Luminous-landscape and the Luminous-Endowment is able to join both expeditions as instructor and traveling companion, his fifth and sixth voyages to Antarctica.

If you’ve always wanted to work with Michael, and wish to do so on a photographic trip that is as close to visiting another planet as any of us will ever get, then grab one of the few remaining places on one of these voyages.

This is the chance of a lifetime.
