Some places hold a spell over me, and I just have to return because I feel that I haven't fully explored all the photographic potential that is there. Easter Island is one such place for me, and I'm pleased to announce that I will be returning in 2009 (March 22nd to March 26th) to conduct a photographic workshop. I have aligned this trip to coincide with my annual workshop to Torres del Paine in Patagonia.
This is a very special trip that I have set up where each day gives a lot of concentrated time at many of the best locations, and of course, I'll be there to share thoughts on photography as well as discuss techniques.
Easter Island has to be the most remote place I've ever been to. The island is small, taking roughly about half an hour to get from one side to the other in a jeep. During that half hour early morning drive, I would pass an abundance of archaeological treasures, volcanoes, wild horses and silhouettes of the famous Moai statues. I was always aware of the pacific ocean on my travels, as well as the wide open sky. The clouds race over Easter Island's landscape creating shifting patterns of light and dark.
Please feel free to view the itinerary and if you have any questions I'd love to hear from you.
