This great trip has a dogsledding itinerary includes an extra 5th day of van travel to area sites of scenic and historic interest for photo shoots. Woven through it is a running clinic on outdoor photography facilitated by Layne Kennedy of Superior/Gunflint Photography Workshops. Layne is one of the best in his business (and you’ll love his infectious humor). Whether you're a professional photographer or a point-and-shoot beginner, you'll come away from this trip with outstanding photos of your dogsledding experience and a host of new photographic skills.
The evenings are filled with fun presentations by Layne on such topics as the history of photography, tips for getting your images published and how to use the latest photo technology tools. You'll especially enjoy the photo fest on the final evening. We'll provide computers on which you can organize your favorite digital images from the week to share over popcorn with the group as a ‘slide show" – a chance to reminisce about the week and gain some helpful critique from Layne.
On past trips, the guests (8-10 total) ranged from teens to seniors with an equal mix of men/women; 80% came with a friend or family member, the others came alone. About half the guests on this trip have professional photography aspirations while the others are casual shutterbugs simply interested in improving their skills for personal enjoyment (and you’re even welcome to come along just for the fun, without taking pictures).
Specializing in magazine features, Layne Kennedy's work has appeared in over a hundred different magazines world-wide on subjects as diverse as Wolves in the Northern Hemisphere to boat builders in the Caribbean, as well as numerous books. His strong sense of abstract design, combined with journalistic story telling imagery, makes him a favorite among picture editors. His great sense of humor and adventurous spirit make him a favorite among M17077 guests! "Our photographic approach to these workshops is simple," says Layne, "We cover our adventure trip as if it were a magazine assignment. Participants are given instruction on general points of coverage to document as well as specific creative assignments like the use of flash, motion, night imagery, portrait, landscape, etc., to be included with their visual story."
