BY INVITATION: Photographing the California Coast— from Monterey to Big Sur

A 2015 Invitational Workshop

We are offering this exclusive workshop by invitation to folks who have joined us at our previous workshops. Never joined us for a workshop? Fear not! E.mail or call us at (505) 983-2934 for details on how you might be able to attend this incredible workshop!

The California Coast is one of the most beautiful and 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 views, rolling hills, and breathtaking coastal mountain views, all 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 so many other important photographers made their homes here, honed their craft, and created their most significant and memorable images.

Join award-winning photographer Craig Varjabedian to explore and photograph hidden beaches, crashing waves, and dramatic seascapes in this incredibly beautiful area. In addition to making photographs, we hope to 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 original prints we will see as well. Then we will visit the premier photography gallery in Carmel, and view important photographs made in this exceptional place. And throughout the workshop we will be making photographs — lots of them . . .
