Welcome to PhotoPXL and Rockhopper Workshops.  It’s been a crazy few years and many people are just now feeling comfortable traveling again.  Prior to the pandemic, we were running workshops just about every month in various places around the world.  These days while we may beat the pandemic, we are finding that many people are still hesitant to book workshops in faraway places.  With the uncertainty of the economy and increased travel costs many travelers are still holding off on booking workshops to far away places.  We used to be able to book a workshop to be sold out in a matter of weeks, nowadays it can take months.  Thus we have decided to change a few things.

While we will still hold workshops at some of our favorite places, we are changing gears and will be holding a series of workshops right here in Indianapolis on Fine Art Printing.  This is a great chance to learn how to make prints from all the workshops you have been to previously as well as some of your favorite photos that have just been sitting on your hard drives.

So, book your trip and workshop now.  

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 for edge-of-the-planet destinations. We have been offering exceptional experiences as well as great instruction for years.

During a Rockhopper workshop, we will be doing everything as a group.  We will handle the ground transportation for you and help make hotel reservations and any other needs 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 nine years ago, Kevin has been running workshops in 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
