Rapa Nui (Easter Island)
Land Of Moai and Mystery


May 10-15, 2019


Giant stone heads called Moai. An advanced civilization that mysteriously disappeared. Rapa Nui (Easter Island) is a place that you leave with more questions than you arrive with.

Workshop At A Glance

Improve Your Photography In A Location Like No Other

This photography workshop will take you to the ends of the earth, literally. Easter Island is the farthest inhabited island on the planet. It is still a mystery as to how the original inhabitants came across the island and were able to thrive. The current descendants of the original people on the island are few. The entire indigenous population springs from only 36 people of the 111 left here after the decimation of the population by a number of factors. Because there was no written language, much of the history of the island is unknown and visitors often depart with more questions than they have arrived with.

This is not the case when it comes to your photography! We will be working in both a group and an individual basis to help with YOUR photography. We will have classes on composition, exposure and filter usage in landscape photography. We will be exploring the island from end to end, taking pictures by the light of the south pacific sun and under the light of the moon and stars. Learn techniques that will help to tell a story and keep the viewer engaged in your imagery. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One on One Edit and Critique Sessions

After you take an amazing image, the job isn't done. Throughout the workshop, we will have both group and individual edit and critique sessions to show you how to get the most out of the images you are creating. I feel that these are crucial to helping people both grow as a photographer but also realize what their gear and images are capable of.  We will also have a slideshow to introduce you to the new area and give you an idea what to expect in the coming days.

 


Don't Worry, I Didn't Forget About the Luxury!

 

 

 

Throughout the entire experience on Rapa Nui, we will be staying at Explora Hotels in 5-star luxury. All of the Explora properties are designed to fit into and work with the environments around them. The meals we eat are all expertly prepared by top chefs often using locally sourced ingredients and despite being three courses, they are designed for an active lifestyle. The whole time we will have guides with incredible local knowledge, trained in wilderness first aid and a private van and driver.
