2013 Garze Tibet Workshop & Tour

Spend 10 days in the beautiful, mysterious, and uniquely Tibetan Garze prefecture...

I’m really excited to announce our first tour/workshop of 2013.  We will be holding a workshop in one of my favorite places in all of Tibet, Garze prefecture.  Garze has the most unique architecture I’ve ever seen in all of Tibet and the people are relatively untouched by modernization as compared to other places on the plateau.  In 2012 I spent three days driving through Garze and it left such a huge impact on me that I knew Plateau Photo Tours needed to do a workshop here.  We will spend 10 days photographing Garze prefecture.  I’m excited as always to have my good friend and cohort Matt Brandon (The Digital Trekker) on board for this one as well.  All in all, this is going to be a truly amazing trip.

2012 Tour Schedule

Plateau Photo Tours 2012 Workshop Schedule

I’ve been getting quite a few emails asking if our Plateau Photo Tours 2012 tour schedule is finalized or not – I’m happy to say that we have finalized all our plans on two amazing trips that we are offering to the general public.   I’m excited to be partnering with my good friend and fellow photographers Matt Brandon and Jerod Foster for two separate trips through some amazing parts of Tibet and western China.

The two trips are are offering in 2012 are below:


ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
It gives me great pleasure to announce Plateau Photo Tours annual Lhasa, Everest, Nepal Overland Tour and workshop.  Last years tour was a ton of fun. We continue to call this trip a ‘bucket-list’ trip because, well, you’re going to see some amazing things!  If you are interested in what all the tour entails, please visit our Plateau Photo Tours website.

The overland route connecting Lhasa, Tibet with Kathmandu, Nepal is one of the most beautiful and and sought-out land routes in all of Asia. Covering a distance of 600 miles, this workshop will take us from the ancient Tibetan capital of Lhasa to pristine high altitude lakes, winding ancient rivers, beautiful farming valleys, Everest Base Camp and over the Himalaya Mountain passes to the ancient Nepali city of Bhaktapur. We will be visiting the most famous monasteries and temples in all of Tibet while spending 13 days immersed in the unique Himalayan culture. Join us on the Roof of the World to get up close and personal with Himalayan culture and the adventure of a lifetime!

We like to consider this workshop as a ‘photo tour with a strong teaching element‘.  Most of the teaching will be done on the field in an organic fashion – we will have some specific teaching areas we will cover as well.  Also, we will have reviews and teachings most evenings to cover events from the day and to prepare for the next.  However, we understand that you will want to get lost in the endless alleyways of Lhasa and wander around monasteries to find your own adventures.  Their will be no ‘flag-totting tour guide following‘ whatsoever.  We’ve built time in for everyone and those who want one-on-one time with the instructors will get it.  Those who want to simply shoot will get it.  We’ve built the tour around flexibility, community, discussion, freedom and your ability to learn what you want from our instructors while also having the opportunity to shoot what you want.
