SAGA – Inderøy - Norway

Our fall workshop with nature photographer Eddie Soloway is designed to push participants from seeing what’s right in front of their eyes, into the world of abstractions, reflections, layers, movement, and then deeper into the realm of concepts and imagination.

During the workshop, outdoor experiences in local natural areas take participants through important steps to enriching their photographs of the natural world as they find themselves focused less on objects and things, and more on the magic of moments and the essence of places.

This is a workshop suited for all levels. Our goal is to strengthen your skill, and develop your eye so you are able to create stunning images of nature, as you see and experience it. 

This workshop weaves together eye-opening outdoor experiences, technical lessons, image reviews, and Eddie’s one-on-one meetings with each participant.

ABOUT EDDIE SOLOWAY
Eddie Soloway’s photographs are the expression of his passion and commitment to the natural world. His eye has developed during a lifetime of exploring the earth’s wild places. Former positions in educational workshop design, wilderness program development, and custom fine photographic printing have further honed his expertise.

In 1998, Eddie was the first recipient of the Excellence in Photographic Teaching Award presented by the Santa Fe Center for Photography, and in 2010 Photo District News named Eddie one of America's best photography workshop teachers. Today he divides his time between making fine-art prints, teaching for leading photographic institutions, speaking on creativity and the photographic life for National Geographic, and furthering photographic publishing projects. His first book, One Thousand Moons, was published in the summer of 2004, and the dvd, A Natural Eye Workshop was released in December, 2009.
