Photograph Prague, Vienna, Amsterdam, & Bruges with Jason Odell
I’m pleased to announce two travel photography workshops for 2021! On these small-group (max 8) events, we’ll be touring a pair of European cities with our cameras, and I’ll be showing you how to create dramatic travel images that do more than just document your visit. You’ll learn composition, exposure, and mobile workflow using Lightroom CC and Photoshop for iPad/Tablets. You’ll also get personal image review and critique sessions with me.

This travel workshop is round-trip from the amazing city of Amsterdam, where we’ll photograph the cultural centers and famous canals in the city. I’ve arranged for private transportation to the famous windmills at Kinderdijk, where we will photograph them at sunset. We’ll then take the train to Bruges, Belgium, another city famous for its food, culture and canals to go along with the impressive architectural sights. We’ll return to Amsterdam before flying home.

Travel photography is all about capturing moments that give a distinct feeling of place. In London, there’s nothing more distinctive than the red double-decker busses that roam the city streets. On this picture-postcard day, I chose to capture the motion of the bus with a long exposure (learn how here). Even though the bus is blurred, the viewer knows exactly what it is and where I’m at. The beautiful architecture of St. Pancras station creates a great backdrop.
I’m back in Colorado after leading an incredible photo tour of London & Paris. My clients and I had so much fun photographing and exploring these cities as part of my creative travel photo workshop series. I always like to pack my infrared camera when I’m traveling, because it’s a great way to capture a popular subject in a totally unique way. To that effect, we had great skies during our morning at Montmartre, where we visited Sacré-Coeur. It was the perfect conditions for infrared photography.
