The dates for the 2008 Lumen Dei Tour and Workshop have just been announced. Or they will be. In fact, consider THIS that announcement.

In almosty exactly one year from now – from September 15 to 27, 2008 – seven to eight participants will travel with David duChemin and Matt Brandon to Kashmir in Northern India.

Total cost is USD 3200.00 from Delhi and that includes pretty much everything including accommodations, meals, internal flights, etc.

If you’ve always wanted to see and photograph Kashmir – a place known as Paradise on Earth – and to learn how to shoot the spirit of a place and her people from two accomplished photographers, this is an extraordinary opportunity.

A few highlights – shooting in the chaotic streets of Old Delhi, living on a houseboat on Lake Dal in Srinagar, photographing floating vegetable markets and the Venice-like back waterways from a classic Shikara, trekking in the Himalaya (with most of your gear on ponies) and meeting and photographing the nomadic Gujjar shepherd people. Add some excellent theoretical and technical teaching, one on one time with instructors, image critiques, and some free swag from our sponsors. Your leaders are competent, generous, and alot of fun. You will remember this trip for the rest of your life.

More details can be found on the LUMEN DEI SITE.

If you are interested in applying please first read through the Lumen Dei site, then send an email and we will get an application package to you.

They are also home to an astonishing density […]

So if you’re in a funk, increase the inputs. Go read a magazine, explore a new place, listen to new voices. If you’re a portrait […]
