  • Description:

    The beautiful California coast is one of the most magical places in the world to make photographs, especially the Central Coast area near Monterey, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Point Lobos, and Big Sur. Here the landscape encompasses dramatic ocean and mountain views, under a magnificent, ever-changing sky. Landscape painter Francis McComas described the area as "the greatest meeting of land and water in the world." This is the place where landscape photography as we know it today was born. Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Wynn Bullock, Morley Baer, and many other important photographers made their homes here, honed their craft, and created some of their most memorable images.

    Join award-winning photographer Craig Varjabedian to explore and photograph hidden beaches and dramatic seascapes in this beautiful area. In addition to making photographs, we plan a studio visit to Wildcat Hill, where we will view the photography of Kim Weston along with the work of his grandfather, Edward Weston. We will also enjoy a private conversation with Barbara Bullock-Wilson and learn more about the photography of her parents, the legendary photographers Wynn and Edna Bullock, whose work we will see as well. And throughout the workshop we will be making photographs—lots of them.

    This is a shooting-intensive workshop and tour, with Craig providing hands-on one-on-one guidance in the field as needed. Whether you are pointing your camera at the sunlit arch at Pfeiffer Beach or capturing sea otters at play at Point Lobos, this workshop will provide many opportunities to make great photographs in a spectacular landscape. The workshop will be based in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.
