How to Find + Photograph “Abandoned Manitoba”


How to Find + Photograph “Abandoned Manitoba”

"How to Find + Photograph Abandoned Manitoba" seminar + optional weekend field class*


Here's your chance to take your photography to the next level. Learn the difference between looking and seeing, and how to develop a natural eye towards making expressive images.

For this special event photo class, I'll be joined by CBC Radio host Gordon Goldsborough author of the best-selling books "Abandoned Manitoba" and "More Abandoned Manitoba." Exploring independently of one another, we have spent years locating and visiting remote sites to capture images of fragile structures, abandoned equipment, and other ruins of significance. Mastering how-to photograph these sites is one thing yet the stories that come out of Manitoba's landscape are as varied as the people who created what became its ghost towns. There are a lot of ghosts to chase in Manitoba and for those who are ghost town-conscious, we'll show you the way to some of the province's most picturesque abandoned sites. 


The weekend Field Classes start at 9 AM Saturday/Sunday and end ~5 PM both days. Essentially, this is an outdoor photo workshop at really cool locations where we'll explore ways to think about various genres and cover techniques for making effective imagery. There is no substitute for making lots of pictures, and few other things are as much fun.

So where should you start and what should you do? The fact that you're reading this right now is your key to making the photos you've always hoped for. So congratulations. It's time to register.
