Now in its third year, the Digital Photography at the Summit workshop brings together a chance to learn from some of the finest photographers working today, intensive Photoshop training by Adobe, week-long access to Nikon digital SLR cameras, lenses and Nikon technical staff and an opportunity to make pictures in one of the most visually stunning locations in the US.
Held for the second time in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the week-long Digital Photography at the Summit will once again focus on the shooting of great photographs with digital SLR cameras; shooting opportunities are interspersed with daily critique and educational sessions. The week wraps up with a large format print exhibition.
Photographers and editors on the faculty include:
- Jay Maisel - Illustrative and commercial photographer
- Bill Allen - Editor-in-Chief of National Geographic
- James Alinder - Photographer, co-founder (with Ansel Adams) of Friends of Photography
- David Schonauer - Editor-in-Chief of American Photo magazine
- Chris Johns - Director of Illustrations and longtime staff photographer, National Geographic
- James Balog - Nature photographer, Vanity Fair, National Geographic
- Vicki Goldberg - Author and principal photography critic, The New York Times
- Tom Mangelsen - Nature and wildlife photographer, International Wildlife Photographer of the Year winner
- Rich Clarkson - Workshop organizer, Sports Illustrated, National Geographic, The Denver Post
Rich Clarkson's annual digital workshop gains a stronger workflow focus this year, thanks in part to the addition of Adobe's irreverent Russell Brown to the workshop staff. Rounding out the heavy-hitting group is digital print-making expert Richard Benson, Dean of the Yale School of Art and Jerry Courvoisier, director of digital instruction programs for the Santa Fe Workshops. I'll be in attendance as well, backstopping the digital SLR and colour management training.
In addition to Nikon, companies supplying equipment and software for use by workshop participants include Apple, Epson, Adobe, Lowepro, Lexar Media and Energizer.
Digital Photography at the Summit runs from April 27-May 2, 2003. Tuition is US$1200, with discounts available for NPPA, NPS and ASMP members, full-time students and educators. For more information, see the Rich Clarkson workshops web site, or call +1 800-745-3211.
