I hope to see you at a photography workshop in 2014. I have the following workshops definitely scheduled for 2014:
2014.01.25—2014.01.26—Mastering Creative Photoshop: The Way of the Digital Photographer—This workshop covers developing a personal digital Photoshop workflow. Topics explained in detail include archiving and checkpoints, RAW processing, multi-RAW processing, HDR, hand-HDR, stacking, LAB color creative effects, monochromatic conversions, using backgrounds and textures, layers, layers masks, working with channels, Photoshop filters, and plugins from Nik Software, onOne Software, and Topaz. If you’ve ever wondered how Harold does it, or wanted to learn how to incorporate his techniques in your own digital workflow, this is the workshop for you!—Space is available, click here for info and to register.
2014.02.22—2014.02.23—Photographing Flowers for Transparency: Two Day Workshop with Harold Davis—a unique opportunity to learn Harold’s techniques, workshop location is Berkeley, California (Limited space is available, click here for information and registration).
This workshop provides a platform for ongoing mentoring in the context of a supportive group environment. Customized individual assignments will be given. After the initial intensive two-day in-person session, we will keep in touch with monthly private group online webinars and individual phone or email consultations. A final dinner to review work and celebrate our progress will be provided at the conclusion of the workshop. Limited to 12 photographers. A portfolio review is required—Limited space availability, click here for info and instructions on how to apply.

Click here for detailed information and itinerary, and click here for online registration. Here’s what one participant in a previous Harold Davis Photograph Paris workshop had to say: “Had an awesome time with Harold, Mark, and the workshop participants. Itching to go back. If you’re a photographer, Paris at night is a ‘Must Do!’. Put it on your bucket list ‘cause you may not see this in Heaven.”
2014.6.27-2014.6.30—Creative Flower Photography, in Heidelberg, Germany. An on-line registration link will be available in the next month.
2014.7.04-2014.7.07—Creative Black & White Photography and Monochromatic HDR, in Heidelberg, Germany. An on-line registration link will be available in the next month.
Also of note: We’ve had many requests for information regarding a 2014 Bristlecone Pine workshop, and plans for this workshop are under consideration pending several significant issues. I will keep you posted on the decision we reach.
I am in the very early stages of planning a 2015 off-the-beaten track Japan photography workshop. Please bear in mind that this workshop will involve eating, sleeping and bathing the way the Japanese do, and with this constraint in mind let me know if you’d like to make a preliminary expression of interest.

- “Awesome! He patiently addressed questions from the audience which contained photographers of all levels , molding his answers to the level of understanding for each of us.

The images he shares are breathtaking and he is generous in sharing many facets of how he captures such beauty.”—J. Phillips
