Alain Briot

Announcing an exciting, photographic-instruction oriented field workshop with professional photographer and instructors Alain Briot and Jeff Schewe. This event covers both the technical and artistic aspects of photography. The emphasis is using technical excellence to develop a personal photographic style. The goal is to help you learn how to create photographs that are uniquely yours.

During this feature packed, one of a kind event we will not only take you to some of the most photogenic locations in the world but also teach you how to best process and optimize your photographs to create fine art photographs that you will be proud to display. You will have the opportunity to study and work 1 on 1 with Alain Briot and Jeff Schewe. And, you will return from this workshop with photographs that you will be proud to display and share.

The 2011 Fine Art Photography Summit was a blast! Got some great images, learned a lot and made some new friends. Alain Briot, Natalie Briot, Tony Sweet, Susan Milestone and Mark Nelson put up an excellent program. Mark Nelson, the guest speaker, gave us a glimpse of alternative printing processes and convinced me that Pt/Pd printing is in my future. We even had a cameo appearance by Jeff Schewe during the print review!

Sounds like next year's summit will be in Page, and the slate of speakers will be equally impressive to this year... time to start planning for it!

Stefano Lassini,
2011 and 2012 Summit Participant









Alain Briot

Originally from France, Alain has been photographing the American Southwest since 1983. Alain and his wife Natalie have lived in the Southwest for over 20 years. Their intimate knowledge of this beautiful area inspires them to photograph and to share their knowledge with others. Currently, Alain works with Phase One P45 digital back mounted on a Haselblad Camera. His work is influenced by his training as an Artist at the Academie des Beaux Arts in Paris.

In addition to creating Fine Art Photographs, Alain is a columnist for Luminous Landscape.com (Michael Reichmann) and several other web sites. His essays on photography are published and read worldwide. Alain also publishes the Mastery Workshop on DVD series, which are available on this site. Finally, Alain is the author of three best-selling books: Mastering Landscape Photography, Mastering Photographic Composition, Creativity and Personal Style, and Marketing Fine Art Photography. Alain's DVDs and books are available on this site.

2013 Summit Presentations:
Alain will be giving the following presentations during the Summit:

1 - Photographing Antelope Canyon and other exciting locations near Page, Arizona
The Summit starts with a presentation by Alain about how to photograph Antelope Canyon and the other exciting locations found near Page, Arizona. Using a selection of his personal work together with maps of the area, Alain will show you where to find the finest locations, tell you the best time to be there, explain which lenses to use and much more.

2 - Foundational image processing
During this presentation Alain explains the most important aspects of image conversion, processing and optimization by teaching you the workflow he uses in his personal work. At the end of this presentation you will have a clear understanding of how to convert, process and optimize your images. You will also be able to use the same workflow that Alain uses to create his trademark images known for their unique color palette, soft contrast and other characteristics specific to Alain's Personal Style.

3 - What is Photographic Vision? - Vision part 1 of 2
During the 2012 Summit in Zion, Utah, Alain gave two presentations on Personal Style. This year, during the 2013 Summit in Page, Arizona, Alain will build upon these presentations by offering two sessions on Photographic Vision.

Vision is important because it is the one thing that will make your work stand out as being unique, original and different from everyone else. In this first presentation Alain will explain what vision is and describe what vision consists of. What are the characteristics of vision? How do you recognize the work of visionary photographers? And most importanly, how do you know if you are expressing vision in your photography?

4 - How to expresss Vision in your Photography:Examples - Vision Part 2 of 2
Vision is seeing what others do not see. But how do you show what you see to others? You do so by developing technical virtuosity to feature in your photographs what you see in your mind's eye. In other words you express your vision by turning your ideas into photographs that everyone can see.

How do you do that? To answer this question, in this presentation Alain will show a variety of visionary photographs created on the basis of an idea, of a vision. Using these examples Alain will demonstrate how ideas are turned into photographs that convey the vision of the artist. Alain will show the exact techniques he used to create these photographs so that you can use them in your own work.

5 - Participant Photographs Review
On the last day of the Summit, Alain and Jeff will review the photographs created by Summit Participants. Alain and Jeff will explain what works in each photograph and offer suggestions to improve them. Alain and Jeff will also use Lightroom and Photoshop live to demonstrate which techniques can be used to improve each photograph.

Personal Work
You can see a collection of photographs by Alain in his Online Portfolios. Alain will also have a collection of his Fine Art Prints for you to see at the Summit.

Jeff Schewe

Artist Statement:
I turned to photography because I was a frustrated painter. With photography there is an ability to create an image with spontaneity and freshness that painting does not allow. Over the years, I’ve still kept my love of light and design originally nurtured with painting. It is with a painterly sensitivity that I now approach my vision and perspective in photography.

I like to shoot any subject as long as I can bring with it a unique viewpoint. Though my first exposure to photography was in the traditional darkroom, I now work by using a computer to digitally manipulate my images. The allure of total power and control over my images that digital imaging allows is so seductive that I now no long even maintain a darkroom. However, though my images are manipulated, I strive to work in a totally photo-realistic manner.

Biography:
Jeff Schewe has been an award winning Advertising Photographer in Chicago for over 25 years. He is accomplished in tabletop, location, portraiture and particularly accomplished in computer imaging.

Jeff shoots a variety of subject matter and likes to control as much of the production as possible. He does this by making his own models, designing and building his own sets, painting backgrounds and employing computer imaging. He has been doing his own imaging for over 15 years in house on his high-end Macintosh systems.

Jeff Schewe is a Photoshop Guru’s Guru. He’s on the inside of the development and testing of Photoshop and has helped guide and direct many features since Photoshop 4.0. Short of some of the Photoshop engineers, there’s probably not many people who knows Photoshop like Jeff.

As an indication of his skills and knowledge of fine art printing, he has been named an Epson Stylus Pro. He is a past Apple Master of the Medium and has been inducted into the Photoshop Hall of Fame. He speaks regularly at Photoshop World.

He is the coauthor of Real World Camera Raw with Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Real World Image Sharpening with Adobe Photoshop, Camera Raw, and Lightroom (along with the late Bruce Fraser) and is also coauthoring a book with Martin Evening titled Photoshop For Photographers: The Ultimate Workshop.

You can read Jeff's complete biography and Artist Statement at this link

2013 Summit Presentations:
Jeff will be giving the following presentations during the 2013 Summit :

1 - Personal Work Presentation
In this first presentation on Friday evening Jeff will show a selection of his personal work and talk about the why and how these images were created. This is a fantastic opportunity to discover Jeff's work and find out what motivates his creativity.

2 - Lightroom 4 and Photoshop CS6

Jeff, who is a world class expert in both Lightroom and Photoshop
, will demonstrate the most useful and important new features of both LR4 and CS6. This is your opportunity to get ahead of everyone else by learning this software wit the top expert in the field and putting it to use immediately on your own images. This presentation will expand on Jeff's best selling book: The Digital Negative. Additionally, if you bring your copy of the book Jeff will sign it for you. In this presentation Jeff will also show us a selection of his favorite tips and techniques. Be ready to learn something unique!

3 - Preparing photographs for output
Preparing photographs for output, either for print or screen display, is a critical aspect of creating a fine art image. Are you preparing your image files properly so as to maximize the quality of your output? In this presentation Jeff will teach you how to prepare your images professionally for a variety of output types so that your photographs look their very best on print or on screen.

4 - Printing from Lightroom and Photoshop
What looks good on screen does not automatically look good on print. In this presentation Jeff will teach you how to get the best possible print from your digital files, printing from Lightroom and from Photoshop. We will have a printer available to print from so you can see first hand the differences between screen image and printed photograph. We will also look at different papers to see how the same photograph looks like on different substrates.

5 - Participant Photographs Review
On the last day of the Summit, Alain and Jeff will review the photographs created by Summit Participants. Alain and Jeff will explain what works in each photograph and offer suggestions to improve them. Alain and Jeff will also use Lightroom and Photoshop live to demonstrate which techniques can be used to improve each photograph.

Personal Work

You can see a selection of Jeff's personal work in his Online Portfolio.

Summit Schedule

The Summit takes place November 1st to 4th, 2013 in Page, Arizona. The schedule for the Summit was designed by Alain and Natalie Briot with three goals in mind: convenient travel arrangements, exciting photographic opportunities ands a convenient place to conduct quality tutorials on image processing and fine art printing. Below is the 2013 Summit schedule:

Friday, November 1st, 2013
Registration, opening remarks and Keynote address

Registration
We will meet you in Page, Arizona, on Friday afternoon, around 4pm, at the Page Courtyard Marriott which is the Summit hotel. The exact meeting time will be emailed to you approximately two weeks before the Summit.

Opening remarks, Keynote Address and Page Locations Presentation
After registration is completed, the Summit will start with opening remarks and keynote address by Alain Briot, Natalie Briot and Jeff Schewe.

After the Keynote Address, Alain and Jeff will present a selection of photographs from a variety of locations in the Page area including Antelope Canyon, other slot canyons, Horseshoe bend, and other little known but extremely photogenic locations all within a short driving distance from Page. Alain and Jeff will explain when, where and how these photographs were created. The goal of this presentation is to help you become familiar with the different locations that we will be photographing. After this presentation you will have a very good idea about where you can photograph around Page and what time of day is best for each location.

Field photography & tutorial sessions

Sunrise: field photography session
You will begin your day with a photography shoot. You will have the choice of photographing Page from different locations. We will discuss which are the best locations for sunrise during the presentation on Friday evening.

Morning : tutorials by Alain and Jeff (see the list of tutorials in the biography section above)
After breakfast we will meet in the conference room at the Page Mariott for a morning of tutorials taught by Alain and Jeff.

Midday: Field photography session in Antelope Canyon
The best time to photograph Upper and Lower Antelope Canyon is at mid-day, so we will stop the tutorials at mid morning to go photograph these unique locations at the best possible time. Antelope Canyon is narrow, so to avoid crowding the slot canyon we will split the group in two so that half of the group photographs Uper Antelope and the other half photographs Lower Antelope. We will then rotate the group so that everyone can photograph both lower and upper Antelope.

Afternoon: Tutorial Sessions resume
The tutorial sessions will resume at mid-afternoon and will continue until 5 pm. You will then have the opportunity to photograph Sunset near Page. Again, we will discuss which locations are best ahead of time and give you detailed directions and other information for photographing these locations.

Evening: One on one sessions with Alain and Jeff
The conference room will be open in the evening for a supervised image processing session during which you will have the opportunity to work on your own images one on one with Alain and Jeff.
This is a unique opportunity to get personalized help from two experts in image processing.

Photographic Vision Field Workshop
November 5, 6 and 7

Immediately after the Summit, Alain and Natalie Briot offer a three-day Photographic Vision Field Workshop to Navajoland. 

The Photographic Vision Field Workshop is designed to expand and build upon the concepts taught during the Summit by exploring the concepts of Vision, Creativity and Personal Style on Tuesday and then getting started designing and working on a personal project on Wednesday and Thursday.  

This Photographic Vision Field workshop is also designed to provide you with a unique opportunity to visit and photograph several of the most beautiful landscapes in one of the most photogenic locations of the American Southwest, Navajoland, including Monument Valley, Canyon de Chelly and much more. These are incredibly photogenic locations that you will be exploring under the guidance of Natalie and Alain Briot who have lived and photographed in the US Southwest for over 20 years and in Navajoland for 7 years.  You will acquire new photographic skills by conducting Photographic Skill Enhancement Exercises under the guidance of Natalie and Alain.

We will depart from Page on Tuesday morning for this extended workshop experience.  Below is the schedule and teaching details of this exciting Photographic Vision Field Workshop. Note that you can attend this field workshop for one or two days only or for all three days, depending on your schedule.

Photographic Instruction:
- How to develop and refine your vision and your personal style

Information about travel arrangements for the Vision Field Workshops will be emailed to you when you register. 

I enjoyed the Summit and Field workshop very much and got a lot out of both.  Every aspect was well planned, well organized and the instructors of the highest caliber.  I look forward to future summits and the possibility of one on one instruction.

Thanks and stay well,

Glenn Gilchrist

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

Travel:
On Thursday, we will photograph Canyon de Chelly at Sunrise. After breakfast we will depart from Canyon de Chelly and travel through Navajoland. We will photograph throughout the day at little known locations discovered by Natalie and Alain during the 7 years we spent living in Navajoland. These locations are away from the touristic routes and rarely photographed. Sunset will be at a location near Tuba City. The remoteness of this area means it is still relatively little known and photographed, a huge bonus when it comes to creating new images and working on your personal style. You are guaranteed to return with images that few people have! 

If you like little known locations and places where you don't see other photographers, then Thursday will be one of the highlights of this trip for you. The remoteness of this area means it is a visual paradise that is still little known and photographed. You are guaranteed to return with images that few people have taken! 

The Vision Field Workshop ends after Sunset. You can stay in Tuba City, Arizona, that evening or start driving back to your destination after sunset. Flagstaff, Arizona is less than an hour South of Tuba City and Phoenix is another two hours from Flagstaff.

You will receive a class syllabus, a detailed itinerary, a list of field exercises, plus several other handouts covering the subjects that we will study at the start of the Summit and at the start of the Vision Field Workshops.

During the Summit, all photographic instruction will be done at the Summit Hotel, in the conference room.

You will then have the opportunity to visit these locations on your own, and you will have the freedom to select the location(s) of your choice. Once back at the Summit Hotel we will help you convert, optimize and print your photographs. The last day of the Summit we will review your work. The photographic review, which is optional, is always one of the highlights of this unique event.

Alain and Jeff will also be photographing during the Summit so you may find yourself photographing with them depending on your choice of locations. Of course you will be photographing with Alain if you attend the Vision Field workshops.

Things to keep in mind:
- Food, lodging, transportation and park entrance fees are not included. While most participants stay at a hotel, some occasionally decide to camp. Similarly, some participants may want to eat with the group while others may prefer to be on their own. Finally, some participants may want to return several times to one location, while others may not want to visit this location. This arrangement provides for maximum flexibility while keeping the cost of this workshop to a minimum. It also gives you maximum freedom in planning your meals and give you time by yourself if you choose.

- We will email you directions to Page as well as a list of hotels in the Page area when you register for the Summit. You will receive an email indicating our Friday evening meeting time as well as additional information approximately 2 weeks before the Summit.

- A passenger car is suitable for this workshop since we will not drive on 4 wheel drive roads during the workshop. However, if you rent a car, we recommend you rent an SUV as it is more suited to this kind of activity.

This includes lectures, meetings, print reviews, lectures, meals, travel and all other aspects of this workshop. For further details read our Workshop FAQ.

- We do not carry cell phones because coverage is often unreliable or unavailable in the remote locations where we will be photographing. Instead, we use walkie-talkies to communicate with each other during field workshops, when we are on location and when we are driving. If you become separated from the group we will call you on your walkie-talkie to find out where you are. For these reasons we ask that you bring a walkie-talkie, such as a Motorola Talkabout or equivalent, to the Summit. Please set your walkie-talkie to channel 4-5.
