WORKSHOP IN DEATH VALLEY 2019 (1)

A MASTER SERIES WORKSHOP

My Workshop in Death Valley are fully permitted by Death Valley National Park: for your safety and to fully enjoy your time in Death Valley, always choose a permitted Workshop!

One of my favourite locations in the world for photography, Death Valley’s amazing landscapes are without equal anywhere in the World: what makes the Valley even more inspiring and photographically rewarding is the variety of very different landscapes and features concentrated in such a relatively small area. Next February, I’ll put my extensive knowledge of Death Valley at your service to make the most of it. Join us to find the best spots in Badwater Basin and the Devil’s Golf Course, to photograph Zabriskie Point from an original viewpoint, to know where the best of the Racetrack’s amazing Sailing Stones are and what to photograph in the vast flats of Cottonball Marsh, and to find the best, cleanest of Mesquite’s sand dunes.

The mild temperatures and the haze-free skies make winter the best season to experience Death Valley in all its beauty, and the possibility of rain creates unique opportunities to see the Valley’s landscapes under a completely different disguise. Death Valley’s spellbinding landscapes are the best location to develop your vision and improve your photography and post-processing technique while creating unforgettable photographs of some of the most unique landscapes in the World!

DEATH VALLEY ALUMNI’S COMMENTS

I greatly admired Vieri’s patience and tact in suggesting us different ways to shoot our photographs while working, some very useful suggestions that helped me to reflect with more attention on my compositions.

VIERI BOTTAZZINI

LEICA AMBASSADOR | FORMATT-HITECH AMBASSADOR | ABIPP EP

Vieri

I consider myself a portrait photographer. I portray the beauty of the planet, working in the most spectacular studio of the world: the world itself. A Leica Ambassador, Leica Akademie Italy instructor and Formatt-Hitech Ambassador, since 2010 I combined my passion for photography with my love for nature and the wilderness by dedicating myself exclusively to Fine Art Landscape photography. With 25 years of teaching on my back, I firmly believe that Workshops are the best way to share my enthusiasm for photography and for the Earth’s beauty with like-minded people. My favourite destinations are the American Southwest, Scotland, United Kingdom, Turkey and, of course, Italy where I settled in 2014 after spending 15 years abroad. Associate of the prestigious British Institute of Professional Photography (ABIPP) and European Photographer (EP), my work has been published and exhibited internationally and is part of various private collections. When I am not around the world photographing, teaching, lecturing or adjudicating competitions, I work on my photographs, prepare my Fine Art prints and write reviews and articles about photography.
