Bosque del Apache 2017 ~ Workshop Announced!

This workshop has filled but get on the waitlist if you really want to go, chances are something will come up and someone will have to forfeit their spot-it happens more times than you think…

Bosque del Apache New Mexico, 5 day photography workshop with Denise Ippolito/ $1699.00
November 27th- Dec 1, 2017
Limit 10/

Join Denise Ippolito for 5 days at Bosque del Apache, National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico. I have been co-leading workshops at Bosque for years, including two for Canon’s Digital Learning Center. But for my next workshop I want to go solo and do things a little differently.

I’d like to get you beyond the “regular shots” that are so common at Bosque and get you thinking of ways to make your images stand out from the crowd. Emphasis will be on using the amazing sky colors that are a Bosque hallmark to our advantage.

Action, action-we want action! Yes, we do! However missing those shots over and over again can be frustrating. Nothing is more exhilarating than capturing a perfect take-off or landing pose. Let me get you into position and help you with your camera settings.

Our goal will be to capture the gorgeous morning sunrise colors and the beautiful sunsets of Bosque and everything in between! We will experiment with a variety of techniques and shutter speeds; creating everything from creative blast-off blurs to tack sharp flight shots, gorgeous silhouettes and much, much more.

Flexible Schedule:

Day 1 – 12:00noon Meet & Greet and slideshow/lecture filled with information to help you make the most of each photo session at the refuge. Afternoon/evening shoot, it is best to get a sense of the place in the afternoon- before your first morning shoot.

Day 2– Morning photo session, break for lunch with the group followed by a Photoshop session, afternoon/evening photo session.

Day 3– Morning photo session, break for lunch on your own followed by a Photoshop session, afternoon/evening photo.

Day 4- Morning photo session, afternoon lunch break, client image review session, afternoon/evening photo session at the refuge, dinner with the group (included).

Day 5– Morning photo session at the refuge before heading home.

A total of 8 shooting sessions, 1 slideshow/lecture, 2 Photoshop sessions and 1 client image review session and 1 Lunch and 1 Dinner with the group. Along with in-the-field instruction and guidance. Schedule is subject to change depending on local conditions.
*Individual attention will be paramount.

Not included:
Transportation, meals (except for two) and accommodations and entry fees into the refuge.

Why Bosque? If you need to ask then you need to get there 🙂 . Tens of thousands of Snow Geese and thousands of Sandhill Cranes and ducks make their way to Bosque every year. They often fly through amazing sunrise/sunset colors that will make for dramatic images. In addition to In-the-field instruction. I will go over gear and camera settings during my instructional slideshow and lecture. Our Photoshop session will be inspirational and productive. No need to sit through hours of boring demos on programs that you don’t even use. If you’ve ever taken one of my Photoshop sessions then you know I like to keep it smart and simple. I’ll share valuable tips and techniques to help you with your workflow and make your images stand out.

*A detailed file will be sent upon registration. Hotel and airport instructions as well as a complete list of gear.
*This workshop needs 6 to go.
*Non-photographer spouses may attend with a $100.00 per day fee. Strict rules apply.

    Hi Denise,

    My brother and I are very interested, but it looks like we weren’t quick enough. Any chance you’ll add a second session either the week before or after?

    Hi Stan, I won’t be conducting a second workshop in Bosque this year-I simply don’t have the time, Email sent.

  4. Tish Underwood says:

    Denise…how do I get on the wait list? How far in advance would I be notified, if a spot opens up? I know that area is very popular during the migration time, so I’m a little concerned about being able to get lodging if a space opens up kind of late, not to mention higher airline charges. Thanks in advance for your response.

    Hi Tish, I will add your name to the list, I can’t say when someone might cancel–you never know. Someone could drop out next week or a week from the start date. I would suggest that you set a cut-off time that you are comfortable with. If no one cancels by that date then you can move on without feeling like you have put limits on yourself.

  5. Tish Underwood says:

    Thank you, Denise, for the add to the wait list. Do you have a specific hotel where your group stays for the workshop at which maybe I could make a “just in case” reservation?
