Welcome to photoPXL workshops. PhotoPXL partners with Rockhopper Workshops, another company owned by this sites CEO & Publisher, Kevin Raber. Rockhopper is the leading provider of workshops to edge-of-the-planet destinations. Other than the cost of travel to and from the designated destination, all PXL and Rockhopper workshops are all-inclusive and provide attendees with an educational experience and adventure unlike any other.

There are a number of choices you can make when selecting a workshop. Many workshops are less expensive but require you to pay for hotels, transportation and your meals separately. In many cases, this means splitting the group up at the end of each shoot-day. With a Rockhopper workshop, you stay together from the time you arrive at the destinations until your return trip home. 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.
