Kevin Raber is a digital pioneer.  Embracing digital in 1996 Kevin hasn’t looked back.  In the seventies and eighties, Kevin ran a very successful commercial studio in the Philadelphia area.  In the mid eighties, he bought one of the first Macintosh computers and started a software company writing software for photographers.  He sold both the studio and software company in 1990 and worked with Burrell Professional Labs as Sales and Business Development Manager.  In the mid 90’s he was part of the team that developed initially a hybrid digital workflow for color labs and eventually a fully digital workflow.  In 1999 he joined Phase One as a Vice President and worked on numerous projects with Phase One until 2013.

Kevin’s passion for photography can only be experienced by photographing with him.  His collection of images from all corners of the globe is extensive.  He was the originator of the well known PODAS workshops and now brings this experience to Rockhopper workshops leading and facilitating photography workshops exclusively for Luminous-Landscape.  You can see more of Kevin’s work at kevinraber.com.

The Palouse Harvest Tour, Two Four Person Private Tours 2018

The Palouse Harvest Tour – Workshops One and Two – August 15th – 20th And August 22nd – 27th 2018

If you have never been or have been many times you should join me in one of my favorite places to photograph in America. The Palouse. This incredible region of rolling hills and farmland is located in Southeast Washington State. I have been shooting this area for years and usually make annual visits to the Palouse both in the early summer and for the harvest in August. There are many places to photograph in this area. I’d love to take you to some of my favorite, fabulous spots.

Over the last few years. we have held workshops in the Palouse with 12 or more people. This year I am offering something special. Come shoot with me and no more than four other photographers (5 of us total) in the Palouse in the harvest season. We’ll be photographing from dawn to sunset at some of my favorite locations. As a small group, we will have plenty of time to talk about photography and making images. I’ll help you along the way find the best ways to shoot this landscape as well as coach you on seeing differently. We’ll also spend time doing image processing and prepping images for printing.

I’ll pick you up at the Spokane airport at noon on the 15th of August for the first tour and on the 22nd of August for the second tour. We will head right into the region and start our photography adventure. We’ll be staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Pullman, WA. Don’t let the Holiday Inn name fool you, as this is not your everyday Holiday Inn.

We’ll work our way south and check you into the hotel by late afternoon. We’ll then head out to shoot for a few more hours as the sun falls lower in the sky. You’ll be amazed at the interesting patterns made by the various fall harvest colors which add to the richness of the images.

The workshop fee includes everything but your flights and drinks. I’ll provide transportation as well as meals at some of the finer dining spots in Pullman. We’ll be out early each morning for sunrise and return to the hotel or town for breakfast before heading out again. During the day we will shoot abandoned houses, trucks and the gorgeous rolling hills. We may take a break in the afternoon to work on our images collectively.
