I’ll be teaching a workshop this summer for the Rocky Mountain School of Photography based in Missoula, Montana. Assisting and co-teaching with me will be Tony Rizzuto, a wonderfully accessible teacher who lives and maintains a studio in Missoula. Our workshop is titled WESTERN TRADITIONS and students will be photographing at a spectacular Indian powwow as well as a rodeo, both events quite close to Missoula. The dates are June 29-July 5. The let’s-get-aquainted opening evening will probably take place at our little house in Missoula where Ani and I will host the attendees with beer, wine, and pasta, and we’ll go over the week to come and discuss powwow and rodeo social mores, how one functions well in such surroundings, giving all due respect to the subjects of pictures. I encourage you to check out the Rocky Mountain School of Photography website for further details about the school and other workshops they conduct in summer and beyond. The color alone, to be seen at the powwow is quite memorable and lends itself to fine imagery. This should be quite a spectacular week. Tony and I will be on hand at both the powwow and the rodeo to assist students and make suggestions when needed. Most mornings will be spent going over some technical things but most importantly, critiquing the work done daily. It should be a real kick and with luck, a great jump start for some, if not all students. There are great pictures to be made. You just have to be there.

  1. This is just sad news for me that I cannot attend this workshop. Please come to Canada as well. The problem is I am on student visa here and I do not know if I can come back if I leave this country. The problem is I am Iranian. :)
