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 his International trips.
Future workshops include:
- Botswana Photo Workshop August 18-30, 2014 (One opening, for woman who wants to share room)
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. Begins in Maun, Botswana, ends in Livingston, Zambia. PDF brochure
- 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 the brochure. 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. PDF brochure
- Galapagos November 27-December 13, 2015 (Just Announced)
Yes, Tony and I are returning to the islands to teach another photography workshop. We have space for 14 students on this two-week trip, which will be on the 216-foot, three-masted motor sailor, the Mary Anne. We’ll be using an itinerary similar to, but slightly different than, the 2014 trip. The different time of year will be giving us a different view of the island activity, too, with the juvenile albatross starting to say goodbye and the marine iguanas and turtles in their mating seasons. If you're interested in this trip, call Lisa Laferte at Wilderness Travel (800-368-2794 or 510-558-2488) to reserve your space.
