I have in-depth location knowledge in running photography workshops to the Gobi Desert, Yellow Mountains, Guilin, Wulingyuan, Xiapu, Yuanyang Rice terrace, Shangri-la, Himalayas and Tibet region. My aspiration to offer an immersive experience upon returning to photography has lead me to focus on three regions that I believe have the potential to connect deeply: Gobi desert for its ever changing forms, the classic Chinese landscape of the Yellow Mountains drawing the eyes to its intricacy, and the Himalaya’s snowy peaks where spirits abide.
Over the years, I have learned a huge amount about camera functions, photoshop/lightroom processing skills, and ways to compose in the field to create a body of work I share with others. The collaboration trips I ran with well-know/experienced photographers has helped me to develop more ways of facilitating a positive environment for different group dynamics.
My future workshops are immersive and I will be fully involved in logistics and meal planning every day, so I don’t process my images or conduct any technique tuition in the field. Therefore, you need to know how to use your camera equipment well in order to maximise the opportunities I present for you at each location. However, I am happy to share my approach each time we make a significant stop and discuss concepts via the camera screen at the end of the day as we gathering for a drink/meal.
