First of four 2005 Rich Clarkson workshops kicks off this Sunday  
Tuesday, April 19, 2005 | by Rob Galbraith

In addition to enjoying teaching, a key reason that some photographers agree to instruct at seminars and workshops is so they can take in the sessions of other faculty members. Being an instructor is a great way to both teach and learn at the same event.

Nowhere has this been more true for me than at Rich Clarkson's workshops. I've been on the faculty of four of them, and a student at three more. Starting this Sunday, I'll add an eighth notch to my Rich Clarkson workshop belt: the 2005 edition of Spring Digital Photography at the Summit.

In past years, as a faculty member at this workshop, I've had the opportunity to learn from the likes of Joe McNally, Jay Maisel, Chris Johns, Jim Richardson and other top-flight shooters whose photographs have influenced me.

I'll be in Jackson, Wyoming at the end of this month to speak on the use of digital SLR cameras as well as digital workflow, and I'm looking forward to the experience. But I'm equally excited about hearing photographer Bruce Dale instruct on digital printing, since as a fabulous photographer he's likely to be a fine printer too.

Dale joins myself, Maisel, Rob Clark, Corey Rich, Tom Mangelsen, Bill Allen and MaryAnne Golon on the workshop faculty.

Spring Digital Photography at the Summit runs from Sunday April 24, 2005 through Friday, April 29, 2005 in Jackson. Workshop director Brett Wilhelm indicates that there are still spaces available. See the Rich Clarkson workshop web site for more information.

Rich Clarkson will be offering three other workshops this year:

Capture the Season Photography Workshop. This event is new to the Rich Clarkson lineup, and is described as combining "high quality digital photography instruction for amateur photographers with state of the art technologies and career counseling for those that wish to move into the professional realm, all in the luxurious setting of the Four Seasons Jackson Hole. A smaller group setting than our Summit Series of workshops provides more one-on-one attention from a select group of the nation's premier photographic talents."

This workshop runs from Sunday, May 22, 2005 through Thursday, May 26, 2005 at the Four Seasons Jackson Hole in Teton Village, Wyoming. Faculty members include Bill Allard, James Balog, Susan Drinker and Dick Durrance II.

Sports Photography Workshop. Perhaps the best-known of Rich Clarkson's workshops, it combines an opportunity to make pictures in and around the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado with instruction from some of the best sports photographers and editors working today. I've been both a participant and faculty member at this workshop; it has consistently been one of the most useful educational experiences I've had.

Faculty will include Dave Black, Maureen Cavanaugh, Rob Clark, Matt Ginella, Bill Eppridge, John McDonough, Mark Reis, Robert Seale, Brad Smith, Joey Terrill and Mark Terrill.

This workshop runs from Sunday, June 26, 2005 through Friday, July 1, 2005 in Colorado Springs.

Fall Digital Photography at the Summit. This workshop combines the blazing fall colours of the Teton Mountains in early October with a format similar to the Spring Digital Photography at the Summit. As of this writing the faculty for 2005 hasn't been set; a list of the 2004 faculty is here.

This workshop runs from Sunday, October 2, 2005 through Friday, October 7, 2005 in Jackson, Wyoming.
