2021 Photo Workshops and Beyond Announced
Let’s Try Again
Like many of you, I am tired of sitting at home. I need to get out and photograph the world. This year as I am sure you will agree has been the worst. While it has given me time to reflect, revisit, and rework many of my images from the past, I have had to do it from the confines of my home.
Our family has certainly been witness to the effects of Covid-19 so we are still practicing safe practices and unlike so many that seem to have thought the Pandemic is over, we are still hunkered down, masked up and staying away from crowds.
It’s also sad to see that America is not welcome anywhere this summer because of how badly we have handled the response to Covid-19. This we continue on as we were until the so-called curve is flattened and there is a way to safely join the real world again.
So, this got me thinking a month or so ago about a lot of things and one of those was photography workshops which have been a big part of my business model for many years. I decided I couldn’t sit on my hands and wait until this pandemic was over before figuring out what to do next. I decided that I would launch a workshop series for 2021 with the anticipation (based on the news I am monitoring) that just maybe we will have a vaccine early next year that will give us protection from this terrible virus. Thus, I am launching our photography workshops for 2021 and beyond.
All the details for these workshops are on my workshop site Rockhopperworkshps.com. I also have a short synopsis on this site under the Workshops menu. And, I have provided a listing here in the articles with direct links to specific workshops pages. I hope you check them out and consider joining us. The Palouse workshops have already seen good bookings as well as Faroe Islands, Greenland and a few for South Georgia Island and Greenland.
I also am working on a series of fine art printing workshops at my gallery and studio in Indianapolis. More information on these workshops will be announced soon. I have also decided to start doing Iceland Workshops again and I am working with my Icelandic partner to put together a set of workshops for 2022. I am also available to customize and lead small private’s workshops to many locations. Get in touch with me if you are interested in something private and special.
All the workshops listed below come with an assurance that if the workshop needs to be canceled due to Covid-19 that all deposits will be returned or forwarded to the following year. I will no run any workshop until I feel it safe for all of us to be participate with no worries.

The Palouse Summer Tour 2021 – Two Workshops
June 14 – 19, 2021 – SOLD OUT
June 21 – 26, 2021 – SOLD OUT
With Kevin Raber
If you have never been or have been many times you should join me in one of my favorite places to photograph in America. The Palouse. This incredible region of rolling hills and farmland is located in Southeast Washington State. I have been shooting this area for years and usually make annual visits to the Palouse both in the early summer and for the harvest in August. There are many places to photograph in this area. I’d love to take you to some of my favorite, fabulous spots.
Plus: This year I will also offer a one hour review, critique, and private one on one consultation after the workshop virtually on Zoom.
Svalbard Expedition 2021 – Quest For the Polar Bear and More
July 18th – 28th, 2021
With Steve Gosling and Kevin Raber
The Arctic summer has arrived, the midnight sun reigns supreme and the purple saxifrage decorates the slopes. The ice is slowly starting to loosen its grip, which offers good opportunities to explore the seldom-visited eastern parts of the archipelago. With ten nights on board the M/S Quest, we have plenty of time for grand nature experiences and wildlife encounters. This workshop will sell out quickly.

August 18 – 25, 2021

Join the elegant 12-passenger ship M/S Balto and Kevin Raber on a true expedition cruise in Northeast Greenland – one of the last unspoiled wildernesses in the world. As we venture into the world’s largest fjord system, we will experience breath-taking nature and scenery, large icebergs in unimaginable shapes. The clean air, the silence, and the enormity of nature are captivating.
Two workshops are available on the M/S Balto a 12 passenger ship. I have chartered the ship for Rockhopper Workshops only. Join me and 12 other passengers as we explore one of the most picturesque locations you have ever seen. Think of the possibilities.

Photography is my passion and has been for 50 plus years. My career in photography has allowed me to travel the world, meet some of the most interesting people on the planet and see things I could never have dreamed of. My goal is to share the passion of picture taking through photographs and teaching with as many people as I can, hoping it brings them as much joy and happiness as it has me. I do this through photoPXL.com, this site, as well as Rockhopper Workshops, and other projects, as well as teaching as Artist In Residence at the Indianapolis Art Center.
