Death Valley with Cole Thompson

Eastern Sierra_2014Feb01_0146v2

Today we started our tour with special guest Cole Thompson.  It has been a joy to spend time with Cole whose work I have admired for quite some time.  Cole gave a presentation today that was tremendous and very inspiring!

Our tour is focused on B&W photography, so I thought I’d post an image created during our scouting trip last week. This one pays homage to another favorite B&W photographer, Chuck Kimmerle.

  1. Good morning John! I love the contrast of the image. Really fabulous texture, composition, and lighting.

    And….I have to tell you a funny story…I was on a website for photo sharing over the weekend and saw images of Fonthill. I knew immediately that the person who took the photographs had to have participated in one of your classes. I sent him a note, and sure enough, he had come to Doylestown from Maryland to take your Fonthill HDR class. He spoke very highly of you and your teaching methods! It’s such a small world! Have a fabulous day! Robyn

  2. Wow! No footsteps!! Pure harmonious artistic display between Mother Nature and Light. Amazing how the wind and weather create the patterns! Awesome find and eye!

    A truly fabulous image and strong b&w JB! Love the patterns, details, flow and design. From pure white to dense black … you have just about every shade and zone in between! WOWmazing!
