Prague is by all acounts a very pretty city. With castles, palaces, beautiful squares, ancient cobbled streets and back alleys, it enchants most people who visit it.

The historic center of Prague is a UNESCO World Heritage Centre (their spelling, not mine). The UNESCO site desribes Prague as, "Built between the 11th and 18th centuries, the Old Town, the Lesser Town and the New Town speak of the great architectural and cultural influence enjoyed by this city since the Middle Ages. The many magnificent monuments, such as Hradčany Castle, St Vitus Cathedral, Charles Bridge and numerous churches and palaces, built mostly in the 14th century under the Holy Roman Emperor, Charles IV."

Prague is also known, among other nicknames, as "the golden city," "the heart of Europe," and "the City of One Hundred Spires." Between the spires and soft palette of the city, it is hard not to photograph it. One can feel as though one is in a fairy tale.

Compared to many European cities, Prague is very clean. While musicians play in a square or on the Charles Bridge, worker bees are sweeping along with their little trash bins, practically dusting around people's feet.

There are museums galore, concerts (think Dvořák), etc. Prague is a very artistic and sophisticated city.

And the food and wine? Excellent. We had heard about the excellent Czech wines and were delighted to find out just how good they were.

We will explore various parts of the city, from the John Lennon wall to Old City Square with its famous astronomical clock, to the castle on the hill, to the Jewish section, to twisty back streets. You will walk past many embassies, eat along the river at any number of cafés, and make some wonderful photographs.

If people are interested, we can even take in the Frank Gehry Dancing House, nicknamed "Fred and Ginger," the name that the architect originally gave the building. There is also the atelier of world-renowned Czech photographer Josef Sudek.

We will be based in the old town within easy walking distance of most everywhere.

For anyone loving old, Medieval Europe, you can't go wrong. You'll be able to celebrate your passion for photography, seek your own vision, hone your seeing and imaging skills, and learn about the magic of light to make wonderful photographs.

Practical Details:
We start out with some technical information before heading out for our first afternoon of photography. Our workshops include the following:
  • Maximum 6-to-1 ratio students to instructors;
  • Primer booklet to help you get started;
  • Early-morning and late-afternoon shoots for domestic workshops;
  • Daily downloading of your images and processing (we use the latest version of Lightroom);
  • Lots of individual instruction in both the field and classroom;
  • Daily critiques, both individual and group for domestic workshops and most overseas ones;
  • Discussions on various aspects of photography, including digital workflow; and
  • Lots of fun and frivolity throughout!
One critical note:  if you are contemplating buying a new camera, please make sure you have a basic working knowledge of it BEFORE you come to one of our workshops. There are so many variations amongst camera brands, and even within each brand, far too many for us to know and thus be able to help you.

FAQs:
If you have not already done so, be sure to check our FAQs for questions you may have as well as for equipment and installed downloads you need to bring to the workshop including, if necessary, the free, 30-day, trial versions of Adobe and other imaging products.

Rooms can go quickly, so best to not wait too long before signing up. Our special room rates are for participants only. Once we receive your application and monies due at the time of sign-up, we will let our hotel know you are, indeed, with us.
