Kathmandu Within The Frame

It’s no secret I love Kathmandu. I spend time there every year and it’s rapidly becoming a second home despite my inability to say more than a few words in Nepali, and none that anyone actually seems to understand. Also Bob Seger and Cat Stevens sang iconic songs about this iconic remote place and they’re stuck in my head forever. So I’m particularily excited to tell you that Jeffrey Chapman, my friend and partner in crime for the upcoming Italy Within The Frame Workshop, has prevailed on me to spend a couple weeks in Kathmandu after Matt Brandon and I finish up with this year’s Lumen Dei tour in Kashmir and Ladakh, and we’re inviting you to come along. We originally planned to go to Laos and Cambodia but as my good friend Gavin Gough is running a fantastic workshop of his own in Laos, we decided to head to Nepal instead and leave the Laotians to Gavin and his own motley crew, for which there are still spaces available.

I won’t give you all the details on Kathmandu here, you can find those as of this morning HERE. In brief, however, it’s this – October 3-16 in the Kathmandu Valley at the best time of year. We’ll be in Bhoudanath, Pashupatinath, Swayambu, Sankhu, Bhaktapur and Bandipur. We’ll be seeing plenty but the emphasis will be on a small group going deeper, not broader. We’ll learn, we’ll do alot of shooting, and we’ll do it all in one of my favourite places on the planet. The group is limited to 8 participants. It costs $4,100 from Kathmandu, and it’s going to be amazing. Space is limited so get in fast if this is a possibility for you. The complete itinerary and details are now available HERE. If you come you will be required to sing a bar of the Bob Seger version of the song at least once. So might as well start now: K-K-K-K-K-K-KATHMANDU! THAT’S REALLY, REALLY WHERE I’M GOING TO! (C’mon, sing it with me!)

If you missed last week’s release of Andrew S. Gibson’s eBook The Magic of Black and White, Part One – Vision – be sure to get in on it before the discount codes run out for this book and others. More info HERE.

New eBook Just Released: The Magic of Black & White

My goal for Craft & Vision, apart from providing exceptional photographic education and inspiration at ridiculous prices, was to get a new eBook out to you once a month, sometimes my own, sometimes one from a photographer I respect. I was planning my own book about black and white photography when Andrew S. Gibson suggested […]
