and Steve Friedman
will join us on this PODAS, guiding us with their extensive knowledge of the area and directing us on how to get that iconic image.
Like all PODAS workshops our trip to the Southwest is all-inclusive. There’s no need to worry about opening your wallet once you arrive, as the workshop fee covers meals, lodging and transportation. Each attendee will be provided their own Phase One XF camera system to use during the workshop and will be provided access to our complete line of lenses, accessories and first hand technical knowledge.
This PODAS is designed to as inspiring as it is adventurous, while remaining relaxed and informal. Though we’ll be spending much of our time in the field to make use of the morning and evening light, there will be inspirational presentations from our instructors, educational camera and Capture One tutorials from Phase One staff as well as a bit of downtime in the middle of the day to allow you to enjoy the tranquility that the high desert of the southwest has to offer. We will cover many advanced techniques of the XF Camera System as they pertain to Landscape and Portrait photography.
This workshop emphasizes the proper use of the XF Camera System and the techniques to ensure consistent success... with a bit of room to enjoy a drink under the vast blue desert sky. Our PODAS group will be limited to 15 participants to ensure our 3 instructors and 2 staff can provide ample attention to all.
As is standard in PODAS, you’ll receive a complimentary camera bag, Capture One Pro Software License key when you arrive at the workshop and two large format professional prints, delivered to your door shortly after the workshop.
The cost of this trip is U.S. $5890 per person. PODAS will cover all expenses once you arrive in Salt Lake City Utah. The only expense that is not covered by PODAS is alcohol and additional room charges during your stay.
Phase One will provide all lodging, meals and transportation with the group until you return to the airport at the end of the workshop.
We do ask that you bring a tripod that can support a Phase One XF Camera System, a laptop that meets the system requirements for Capture One Pro and CF cards. As this workshop is in the high desert, temperature fluctuations are a given. Some of our locations may require walking short distances. It is recommended you bring light but warm outer wear as well as appropriate sturdy footwear for the rugged desert environment. The key here will be layers, so plan on cooler mornings and evenings with warm midday temperatures. Aside from these, you only need to bring your passion for photography.
If you have any questions please just drop us an email.
The workshop will begin and end from the Salt Lake City Airport (SLC). Arrivals should be scheduled for no later than 5pm on October 19th
. Return flights should be scheduled out of either Flagstaff or Phoenix Arizona on the night of the 27th
or any time on the 28th
October. (Unless of course, you are staying on for the second half of this photographic adventure!) Flights may be limited so if you plan on arriving early, or staying late, we can certainly help accommodate your schedule. We’ll be traveling via private transport with a dedicated driver to most locations and will be sure to provide ample room in the vehicle for comfort. Dietary restrictions can certainly be satisfied and any travel assistance you may need is just an email away.
