You have heard the old hockey phrase “skating to the puck”. That’s what we are going to do at Rockhopper for 2021 Workshops.  The worldwide pandemic has really affected us here at Rockhopper Workshops as well as any company offering travel-related products and services.

We have a choice to shut down and wait until it’s safe, or based on news and other sources take a chance that by the end of the first quarter of 2021 that we may have a vaccine and be on the way to seeing the world open up again. With that possibility and safe travel again becoming a way of life again we are proud to present the 2021 Rockhopper Workshops destinations.

If things do open up and based on a previously sold-out season we are pretty confident that these workshops listed will sell out quickly. There is a huge pent up demand to get back out there and see all the world has to offer and for us photographers to photograph the beauty we see.

So, book your trip now.  We offer a 100% redund on deposits if for any reason we have to cancel the workshop due to Covid-19.

Welcome to photoPXL workshops. PhotoPXL partners with Rockhopper Workshops, another company owned by this site’s CEO & Publisher, Kevin Raber. Rockhopper is the leading provider of workshops to edge-of-the-planet destinations. We have been offering exceptional experiences as well as great instruction for years.

During a Rockhopper workshop, we will de doing everything as a group.  We will handle the ground transportation for you and help make hotel reservations and any other need you may have. Once on-site, we manage all elements of your stay so you can concentrate on taking and making great photographs. We believe that the learning experience of each workshop comes not just from exposure to great instructors, but also from the discussions at meals and while traveling to daily destinations with fellow attendees. You’ll take great images, make new friends and we’re certain, enjoy a few laughs.

Kevin has been running workshops since 2005. While at Phase One he was the founder of PODAS, a unique workshop experience provided by Phase One. Since leaving Phase One six years ago Kevin has been running workshops to just about every imaginable location on the planet.

After you attend a PXL – Rockhopper workshop you’ll be part of an international group of Rockhopper Workshop alumni. This growing group of photographers has made lasting friendships that began during one of our workshops. We look forward to seeing you and we are confident that once you’ve taken a PXL – Rockhopper workshop you’ll want to be part of another workshop to another world-class destination.

Thank You . .  Kevin Raber, Owner, CEO and Publisher

Greenland Photo Workshop – Two Trips – August 2021

When people ask me to describe Greenland, the word immensity comes to mind. Everything about Greenland is big. The Icebergs, the rocks, the Fjord systems, and glaciers all challenge your sense of size and scape. This, of course, makes for some incredible photography. The landscape and everything we photograph are dynamic. What we see and photograph one day will not be there tomorrow. There are no iconic images from Greenland as every image is iconic in itself. Join Kevin Raber for what promises to be an incredible adventure. This year we will be traveling on the small expedition ship M/S Balto. There will be two cruises you can choose from.
