A Body of Work

February 14th, 2015 |  by No comments

Almost any photographer can produce 10 to 20 really good images but that in itself, may no longer be enough to gain them the recognition that will take their craft further. Developing a voice or a style and eventually developing a successful body of work may help provide you with the edge to take your work to the next level.

CAN YOU DESCRIBE YOUR OWN WORK OR STYLE?

20140407_chefchaouen_0111If you are a painter there are words to describe the style of painting that very clearly communicates the type of work you produce such as Impressionism, Realism, Photorealism, Fauvism, Surrealism. If you work in ceramics, or glass or just about any form of art other than photography the outside world gets a pretty good idea about your art. Yet, when it comes to photography, most folks just call themselves a photographer, which leaves the door wide open for interpretation. When I say that I am a photographer, I am routinely asked if I do weddings and when I say no, I am asked if I do wildlife and when I say sometimes, they are already confused. When I add in that I also photograph people and landscapes and produce commercial work for magazines, and fine art for galleries they are clearly even more confused.

Digital Photo Destinations Workshops – Not a photo tour – A true photography workshop

April 3rd, 2013 |  by No comments

John Paul Caponigro and I take folks to exotic places like Antarctica, Iceland, Greenland, The Atacama Desert, Namibia and places that folks dream about but rarely experience. When you travel with Digital Photo Destinations you get much more than a photo tour. We provide lectures as well as critiques of work and everyone gets one on one time.  Roger Ressmeyer who has been an executive at Getty Images and Corbis and has produced covers for National Geographic and now is producing a movie recently took our workshop in Iceland. Here is what Roger had to say about our workshop:

“Seth and JP’s Icelandic workshop was perfect in every imaginable way. It reignited my creativity and stretched my technical understanding to new heights. They are the teachers to teach teachers, and their laughter and excitement and awe of nature is totally contagious. I will be recommending their workshops to everybody who loves photography.”

Aurora over the Glacial Lagoon in Iceland

Aurora over the Glacial Lagoon in Iceland

I am back home after two fantastic back to back workshops in Iceland.  The aurora is a magnificent sight to see but difficult to photograph in a unique way. I have posted my images from Iceland at http://www.sethresnick.com/recent/iceland2013/. I hope you enjoy the images and we will certainly be back to Iceland in the future. For now our other workshops are filling up very fast and Antarctica 2014 has only 3 spots left. This will be the first time we fly both ways to Antarctica and avoid the Drake Passage. Sun Valley is sold out and Greenland has only 10 spaces left. My workshop at Santa Fe and with Greg Gorman also have only limited space and our return to the amazing Atacama Desert has only 5 spaces left.

March 3rd, 2013 |  by No comments

Wow what an amazing February and here comes March… We got back from Antarctica last Saturday and started a workshop limited to 10 folks in Palm Beach Gardens. Tomorrow I leave for two Digital Photo Destination workshops in Iceland with good friend JP where we will be photographing Ice Caves and the Aurora. Our local dear friend and Icelandic photographic expert Ragnar just had some of his images featured in Time Magazine. Our workshop folks are truly being offered the best possible experience in Iceland.

My images from our Antarctica trip are posted. It was really an amazing trip and I concentrated on reflections and ice under water which i really find fascinating. I love Antarctica and JP and I have another trip scheduled , our 6th trip on February 16-25th 2014. This trip will include bypassing the infamous Drake Passage by flying to and from the continent. This trip is selling out fast with only 9 spots now left.20130213_danko_island_0289

Highlights from Atacama Desert – Chile, Argentina and Bolivia

Thunderstorm followed by rainbows at salt flats in Salinas Grande, Argentina

John Paul Caponigro and I are back from our Digital Photo Destinations workshop in the Puna & Atacama deserts spanning three countries – Argentina, Chile and Bolivia. Some of the major highlights from this spectacular landscape were the pumice stone fields of Campo De Pedro Pomez, The Red Labyrinth. Salinas Grandes, and Salar De Uyuni. Stretching more than 600 miles from Northern Chile, the Atacama Desert rises from a thin coastal shelf to the pampas—virtually lifeless plains that dip down to river gorges layered with mineral sediments from the Andes. The pampas rises up to the altiplano or the foothills of the Andes, with rising volcanoes along the continental divide, reaching  more than 20,000 feet. According to NASA, the Atacama is the driest desert in the world. Part’s of the Chilean Atacama have not seen rain since record keeping began. Without water the environment is sterile so nothing breaks down and everything is permanently preserved.

We’re planning our 2013 workshop. The tentative dates are December 6 -14, 2013.  If you’d like to join us email me at seth@digitalphotodestinations.com. This workshop will sell out fast.
In addition to the images posted below, more images from our trip are posted at:
