Digital Photo Workshop Will Cruise Alaska Capturing Dramatic Images of The Last Frontier
Embarking from Seattle on August 30, 2013, attendees will visit
Ketchikan, Juneau, Sawyer Glacier and Skagway in Alaska, and Victoria,
BC, in Canada.
April, 2013 -- The oldest and most popular digital photography workshop at sea will embark from Seattle, WA, for an 8-day cruise on the Celebrity Solstice, August 30th through September 6th, 2013. Enrollment is limited to 12 attendees who will visit Ketchikan, Juneau, Sawyer Glacier and Skagway in Alaska, and Victoria, BC in Canada before returning to Seattle.
Now in its 12th year, the workshop has built its reputation by enabling photographers at all skill levels to quickly improve their work by using proven professional techniques. Photographs taken by past workshop participants have appeared in national magazines and books and many former attendees have become professionally involved in photography.
Leading the group will be Arthur H. Bleich, an award-winning
professional photographer, writer and educator who has worked and
lived in Alaska and whose images of the 49th State have been published
and exhibited throughout the world. He has shot assignments at more
than 50 locations in Alaska and is intimately acquainted with its
history, people, and geography.
Attendees will be able to capture images of timeless totem poles,
Indian dancers, grizzled pioneers, historic Russian Orthodox churches
with beautiful religious icons, gold mines and canneries, breathtaking
scenery and abundant wildlife- bears, eagles, whales, exotic seabirds
and more. In Skagway, a half-day train ride on the White Pass &
Yukon Railway offers magnificent scenery from high trestles, remote
valleys and at places with names like Bridal Veil Falls and Dead Horse
A highlight of the workshop will be cruising the narrow waters of
Tracy Arm to magnificent Sawyer Glacier where giant slices of ice
weighing millions of pounds tumble into the water with a thunderous
roar- their splashes sometimes reaching hundreds of feet high as they
become new-born icebergs. The ship's last port of call will be
Victoria in British Columbia, an island city know for whales that
gather in the harbor and for the stunning night lighting at Butchart
Gardens, an international attraction.
Demonstrations and lectures will be held in the workshop's private,
high-tech conference room where attendees will also have their images
reviewed. Past participants cite those sessions as the key to rapidly
improving their photographic skills by helping them identify and shoot
Bleich says the reason for such rapid improvement is that the workshop
teaches the fundamentals of how to recognize and photograph subjects
exactly the way professional photographers do. "Most professionals,"
he explains, "go through a simple, mental, step-by-step routine
before shooting a picture. Once our attendees begin to do the same,
they experience a dramatic improvement in their work."
The workshop is limited to 12 attendees to
assure individual attention in a relaxed and enjoyable learning
environment. All-inclusive costs begin at $2,490, with non-attendee
companions paying less. For further information visit: http://www.dpcorner.com/cruise
