From time to time Thom Hogan teaches intensive two-week photo workshops along with his teaching assistant, Tony Medici. These workshops feature teacher-to-student ratios of no more than 7:1 (typically 5:1 or 6:1) and as much one-on-one interaction as you're comfortable with. Lodging, food, and transportation are all first class even when we use tent camps in Africa; we don't want the logistics or practical things to get in the way of our photography. Thom uses award-winning tour operator Wilderness Travel to handle the logistics for most of his International trips.
Future workshops include:
- Botswana Photo Workshop August 18-30, 2014 (One Space Left)
This workshop is scheduled for August 18-30, and is similar to the two other Botswana workshops I've run in the past (see 2010 blog and 2013 blog). We've got a few small differences planned for this workshop as we'll be using a sister lodge to the one we've been using for the in-delta experience, for example. Moremi, Savute, and Chobe, which are all very different terrains and animal experiences, are the highlights, and we'll once again be spending time on boats and have a short plane flight over the delta itself. If you’re interested in this trip, contact Ally Tong at Wilderness Travel (800-368-2794 or 510-558-2488) to reserve your space or to get a PDF flyer that fully describes the trip, and do so soon, because this trip is filling up despite the fact I haven't heavily promoted it yet. Begins in Maun, Botswana, ends in Livingston, Zambia.
- Patagonia March 2-17, 2015 (Full, Waitlist Only)
This trip features some new locations that you don't often experience on other Patagonia tours. We'll be starting and ending in Calafate, Argentina this time, with a strong emphasis on the landscapes of Patagonia in Fitz Roy and Torre del Paines parks with a stop at the absolutely stunning Estancia Christina in the middle. I believe I've put together a great way to see the two big parks in Patagonia, and full details are available in a PDF from Wilderness Travel. If you're interested in this trip, call Linnea Peterson at Wilderness Travel (800-368-2794 or 510-558-2488) to reserve your space, or at least your place in line.
- Namibia 2015
We're still in the planning stages for this trip, but this will be a mixed landscape and wildlife workshop, and we'll be moving from spot to spot via the air to cut down travel times. Final details on this trip won't be available until late summer 2014.
If you're interested in any of these workshops or any others that might get scheduled (and there isn't a direct contact number in the above descriptions), send email to Thom with your full contact information (name, address, phone, email, which workshop you're interested in). Failure to provide full contact info may mean you don't get first crack at signing up for these workshops when they become available. Because these workshops are popular and tend to fill up very quickly, I announce them first to previous workshop students, then a few days later to those that have sent email requests, and a few days after that I post the details and signup information on this Web site.
Please note that workshop interest emails aren't directly responded to. They are simply used to form a mailing and call list to send information to when a new workshop is announced.
