Upcoming Workshops

Many of our international workshops this year are being postponed to 2022.  The United States is doing well reopening and vaccinating everyone.  Unfortunately, the rest of the world hasn’t been so fortunate.

Working with our workshop partners we have decided to play it safe.  I’ll be adding new workshops for 2021 staying in the US.  All of our workshops have moved to 2022.  Many of these workshops are sold out or nearly sold out due to participants moving from the 2020 and 2021 workshops to the new ones in 2022.

We believe that 2022 will be a banner year.  The pent-up demand is big and like you, I want to get back out and share the amazing places we will visit.  We are adding Iceland again to our lineup as well as in-studio Fine Art Printing workshops in Indianapolis.  So, check back often as well as visit Rockhopper Workshop for the latest details on these workshops.

So, book your trip 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 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 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 seven 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 – August 23 – 30, 2023 SOLD OUT

SOLD OUT - 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 the glaciers all challenge your sense of size and shape. This, of course, makes for some incredible photography. The landscape and everything we photograph is 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. In 2023 we will be traveling on the small expedition ship M/S Balto. This workshop is almost sold out as many rebooked from the 2022 canceled workshop. Book this amazing trip now. Details can be found on rockhopperworkshops.com
