The Tuscany of America; Palouse Photo Tour and Workshop

My favorite photography destination is Tuscany. There are so many things to love about shooting there. Several of the key elements are the special quality of the light, the amazingly sensual forms of the landscape, the incredible colors, and the sense of space. Well, if we define photography as “light on forms in space” and color photography as that, plus color, then I think that just about sums it up.

However, the cost, the time, the effort, and the uncertainty of international travel means that few American photographers get the opportunity to visit Tuscany, and even those who manage it, aren’t able to return often enough. Which leads to the title of this post. There is a location, right here in the US, which shares those characteristics with Tuscany: the light, the form, the space, the color. And that’s the Palouse.

If you haven’t been there, you owe it to yourself to experience it. And the best way I can imagine to travel there is with a great shooting team like David Saffir and Jack Lein. They will be running a workshop in the Palouse, June 19-23. These are seasoned landscape photographers who have something to offer any level of photographer. Its a pleasure to shoot with them anywhere, but especially in a location like the Palouse.

Here’s the link for more info on the workshop. Please take a look!
