Cape Cod: June 5 – 9, 2019 

For some, Cape Cod is all about lathering on the sunscreen and wading into the waves of the Atlantic. For others, it’s eating boiled lobster while looking out onto the eclectic street scenes of Provincetown. Still others find their magic standing on the soaring sand dunes of the 43,500 acres of Cape Cod National Seashore watching a humpback whale breach in the distance.  Join Laurie Klein and Shelley Vandegrift, the Invisible Story Team,  to experience and capture the beauty this land, shaped by wind and ocean currents, offers. We will begin each day with discussion and critique sessions after which we will venture out to photograph the dunes, marshes, beaches, harbors, seals and other wildlife, and colonial architecture.  Evenings can be spent in Provincetown dining, shopping and people watching. This workshop is for Infrared, Black &White and Color photographers.  The workshop cost includes a whale watching tour and a 4-wheel drive tour of the dunes.

Introduction to Hand Coloring: July 13 & 14, 2019
Introducing the new DSI Digital Silver Matte Fiber Print ® 

You’ve taken a beautiful photograph and want to make it a one of a kind piece of art, but you are intimidated by the thought of picking up a paintbrush or colored pencil and enhancing your image. Hand coloring a black and white photograph is an art form all by itself. One that is much simpler and more accessible than you think. Laurie has created a process that is easy and accessible to all age groups and artistic abilities.

This hands-on, two-day course introduces you to the history, esthetics and technical aspects of hand coloring in a manner that is easy to master and mistake proof. This class will discuss taking photographs that are suited for hand coloring, selecting your materials, coloring techniques, and preserving your finished work. Students leave with at least 2 finished, fine art pieces of their own creation along, a hand coloring starter kit, and all the knowledge necessary to create on your own.

Tuition – $395
In addition, students are required to have 3 to 4 images printed by Digital Silver Imaging on the new DSI Digital Silver Matte Fiber Print® paper.  These prints will be hand colored during the workshop. Printing fee paid directly to DSI varies based on print specifications.

Creative Infrared Photography: Capture to Print – presented by Santa Fe Photographic Workshops: August 19 – 23, 2019

With infrared photography, it’s important to learn the rules so you can go out and break them, and over five comprehensive days renowned IR specialist Laurie Klein and her technical collaborator, Shelley Vandegrift, show you how to do just that. Under Laurie’s guidance, participants train their eyes to pre-visualize the qualities of IR: how it records heat and how it interprets the visible spectrum: especially foliage, vegetation, people, clothing, buildings, and lighting situations. In daily visits to the areas around Santa Fe, we photograph nature, landscapes, structures, and models while exploring the art of emotive storytelling. 

Each day we engage in group critiques as well as one-on-one time with Laurie, who facilitates your process of finding and strengthening your own infrared visual voice. Throughout, each participant develops a personalized workflow and gets comfortable utilizing different post-production methods. At the end of the week, we print selected IR images produced during the workshop in the Workshops state-of-the-art digital lab.

This workshop is open to those just entering the world of infrared as well as anyone wishing to up their game and create more dramatic IR photographs. Please bring a converted IR camera.

Come with an open, curious mind, ready to learn the secrets of great infrared photography, and leave with a new set of skills for making unforgettable images!

Cost: $1,475 plus $275 Model, Location, and Materials Fee

This workshop is presented by Santa Fe Photographic Workshops in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Self-Exploration in Your Images – a New Workshop : November 16 & 17, 2019

“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.” ~Dorothea Lange

How do you expose AND express your feelings, emotions and thoughts in your images? I have spent the past year working on a new project of mine, The Invisible Story, and through it I am learning so much about self-exposure and self-expression. Yes, it is about being vulnerable, courageous and being brave. About opening doors through which you have yet to walk.
I hope you will join me at my new loft in Providence, Rhode Island, for this exciting workshop on self-exploration.  Bring a group of 20 images and a notebook and dive deeply into your work. We will be looking at images and creating clarity and structure around your projects. Sessions will be: 10:00 – 7:00 Saturday and 10:00 – 4:00 Sunday.

Bonus: Includes a 30 minute follow up Skype with Laurie, to be used within a month of the workshop. 

Cost: $395
Location: The studio loft of Laurie Klein Photography, Providence, Rhode Island
