ZEN & THE ART OF NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY
Please join us for a unique and inspiring creative experience that combines elements of a traditional nature photography workshop with those of a Zen meditation retreat. Zen philosophy has much to teach the Western artistic mind about being present in the moment, paying attention, spontaneity, balance, and the interconnection of all things. This program will integrate these principles in the pursuit of creating elegant and expressive images of the natural world. Each day will involve a set of morning and evening photoshoots in some of the world’s most spectacular scenery, including the vistas of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, Castle Valley, and the banks of the Colorado River. Participants will hone their technical photography skills, including conveying motion, depth of field, astrophotography, and advance digital techniques, in addition to practicing meditation exercises on light, form, and movement. The program will be based out of the iconic Red Cliffs Lodge on the banks of the Colorado River fifteen miles outside Moab. Food and lodging included.
Tour Highlights Include:
Four days of full-time professional photographic instructions and inspirations provided by
professional adventure photographer Jonathan Duncan of Apline Vision Media
Three nights accommodation at the amazing Red Cliffs Lodge on the Colorado River
