5 Weeks (8): After Dark = Awesome

This is the last part of the 2012 North American tour recap.

I ended the tour by treating myself to one of the most creative photo events I’ve ever been to: After Dark.

After Dark Studio Sessions

The sessions with creative photographers include pretty much all topics, from studio photography to seeing light to post production to how creativity works. Together with a bunch of vendors who provide equipment to play with. It’s the perfect organised chaos with tens of sessions and activity and the sessions can last far into the small hours of the day. Night location shot anyone? It’s called After Dark for a reason…

After Dark Available Light

Listen to the TFTTF episode that I recorded with After Dark founder David Junion and fashion photographer Brian DeMint.

5 Weeks (7): Canyonlands Landscape Photography Adventure

Let’s continue to recap of 5 awesome weeks with the very special workshop at Canyonlands National Park in Utah. I teamed up with Jon Miller, Monika Andrae to bring some adventure to the tour. Good thing we had done something similar at three Everest Treks in 2009, 2010 and 2011 😉

We met in Ft. Collins, CO to stock up, but before the tour I first did a quick stop at the Mt. Everest Cafe to do some ad hoc food photography.

But on to the Canyonlands 2012 tour.

First we went supplies shopping:

By the way, SPAM for breakfast (together with oatmeal, eggs, potatoes and coffee) is actually quite tasty, especially if fried by Jon Miller.

Here’s a look at some of the super advanced camera tech that we had on the tour:
