2021 infrared photography workshops

September 16, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

I'm happy to announce that I have added two more scheduled infrared workshops for 2021. 

The new workshops will be held in the upper Bay of Fundy on 08-12 July 2021 and in Kenya's Great Rift Valley, at Lakes Naivasha and Nakuru, on the 08-13 November 2021. These are in addition to the currently scheduled Halifax-based infrared workshop in late-May.

All three workshops will cover more or less the same material and techniques but will differ in the types of photo opportunities available. 

For the Halifax-based workshop, we will spend 3.5 days on the east coast of Nova Scotia, with visits to the well-known photo destinations of Lunenburg, Blue Rocks, and Peggy's Cove.


For the Bay of Fundy workshop, which will be based in Parrsboro, we visit the Fundy fog forest, old Acadian farming villages, and see the huge tides (and cliffs) of this remote part of the province. I am excited about that one because this is where I live - it will be a real Canadian Maritimes experience, even with home-cooked blueberry pancake and maple syrup breakfasts at my house before we head out for photo sessions. This is the most economical workshop I offer - because I am close to home, I have no travel expenses that need to be covered as part of the workshop fee.



For the Kenya workshop, we visit the lakes and wetlands in Kenya's Great Rift Valley for both infrared and some visible light photography, spreading the learning sessions over an extra day and half to allow lots of wildlife and bird photo opportunities too. Shooting IR in this part of Kenya is fabulous and at Lake Nakuru National Park we will get chances to see a number of wildlife species, potentially including rhinos and big cats. This is being run economically, so is a great intro to Kenya - for anyone that wants a double shot of Kenya, I also run a luxury safari to the Masai Mara immediately after this workshop and offer a discount to anyone registering to both.
