K&M Adventures hits the road in 2014 with adventures set to do one thing, have fun behind the camera! Along with my best bud and shooting companion of the last three decades, Kevin Dobler, we will take you to places are at times very common and other no one has ventured to before to explore with your camera. The goal of K&M is to inspire you to never leave your home without your camera, make the most of every click and not be afraid of Photoshop. We’re doing to wear you out, make your sides hurt and probably bring home a click or two you will always treasure as your best!
K&M Adventures is taking on the the elements with a winter Oregon Coast Adv, 19-23 March, 2014! This magnificent region is one Kevin & I have journeyed to and photographed many, many times. The coast in the winter is a spectacular photographic playground as Mother Nature chisels away at the rock! As you might notice, I think it’s a great place for B&W and is the same region featured in my Kelby Training Black and White Landscape Class. You’ll wanna fly into Portland on the afternoon of the 19th (by noon) and fly out on the 24th (after 2pm). We’ll pick you up from the airport and escort your around until we take you back to the airport. That, along with instruction are all included for the price of $2195 (limited to 7). We spend from breakfast until last up together shooting, eating, shooting, digital darkroom, laughing and other things you just can’t imagine! Which means you might find yourself in front of a subject you never imagined. (Unlike our other Adventures, there will be a lodging change half way through the trip. Lodging not included in the price). And after those long days, you want to kick your shoes off and relax. Give the office a call 760.924.8632 and we’ll get you all signed up!
What do you need for the workshop? Utmost is an adventurous spirit! We’ll be up early and out late shooting and in between, we’ll be learning, laughing and working on images. This will be the most laid back, jammed packed workshop you’ve ever been on! Computers & camera gear are highly recommended and a packet will be sent to you with specific information some time prior to the adventure. We have two openings, call 760.924.8632 if you’re up for the adventure!
Bob from Monument Valley Adventure
I also wanted to thank you and Kevin again for the great time at K&M.
I absolutely loved the emphasis on shooting. And shooting with both of you, right there in such a small group, directly impacted improvement in both my technique and thinking about what I was doing. Especially our discussions on the subject and thinking about how you will finish the photograph while you are in the field.
At the same time, I got more out of the informal processing sessions in moving my post work forward than anything I have taken before. I think it was because I could actually try out something real time and ask questions to get past the typical hurdles one gets into when trying a new Photoshop technique – and then cement the knowledge by doing it a couple times more while you both were sitting right there.. Getting help on the Wacom was huge too and now it is part of my workflow instead of just sitting in a box. Also, while I am not trying to become a Kevin or Moose clone, I really appreciate the comments about the photos I showed you from time to time as it helped develop my perspective on trying to create the best image I can.
Carol from Grand Canyon Adventure
That’s how I’d describe my experience with you and Kevin in the Grand Canyon. . . in two words. . . because I know you prefer short e-mails. But, I just can’t leave it at those two words, as perfectly descriptive as they are. My time last week in the Grand Canyon was a marvelous, once in a lifetime experience, not only because it was my first visit to see the exquisite beauty of the Grand Canyon but also because I had the privilege of taking photographs along side you. Thank you so very much. I had a great time and I learned. The most important thing I learned from you was to figure out what the subject of the photograph is before I take it. That one piece of counsel from you had the biggest effect on me during the workshop as I assessed the views and tried to decide what the photograph would convey, instead of mindlessly snapping away just because. At the same time, that one caution will also save me some disk space as the size of the D800 files is quickly gobbling up precious space on my drives.
