Alain and Natalie Briot are proud to announce the 2018 Moab Fine Art Photography Summit an exciting. The Moab Summit is a photographic-instruction oriented seminar and field workshop event taught by professional photographers and instructors Alain Briot and Jeff Schewe. This event covers both the technical and artistic aspects of photography. The emphasis is on using technical excellence to develop a personal vision and 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 Moab, and the slate of speakers will be equally impressive to this year... time to start planning for it!

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 Hasselblad 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 Reichman) and several other web sites and magazines. 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 four best-selling books: Mastering Landscape Photography, Mastering Photographic Composition-Creativity-Personal Style, Marketing Fine Art Photography and How Photographs are Sold. Alain's DVDs and books are available on this site.

2018 Summit Presentations:
Alain will be giving the following presentations during the Summit:

1 - Photographing Arches and Canyonlands National Parks
The Summit starts with a presentation by Alain about how to photograph Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. Using a selection of his personal work together with a map of the parks and of the Moab area, Alain will show you the finest locations and tell you the best time to be there, which lenses to use and 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. This workflow features techniques in both Lightroom and Photoshop. 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 - Artistic Lightroom Techniques
Starting in late 2017 Alain started using Lightroom more and more in his work. This change contrasts with his previous approach which was to use lightroom moderately and to do most of his creative work in Photoshop. As a result of this new approach Alain developed several new techniques to achieve his trademark look. The goal of these techniques is to create artistic photographs and not just documentary photographs. During the Moab 2018 Summit, Alain will teach these new Lightroom Techniques and show you how you can use them in your work.

4 - Finding your style by going too far.
Developing a personal style is an important step in your development as a photographer. It is also the goal of many photographers. One technique used to develop a style is to go further with your adjustments. But how do you know that you have gone too far with an adjustment? Because you have gone too far! Many times we believe we have gone too far while in fact we are still very 'modest' with our adjustments.

Going too far is an artistic approach which is used to decide how much is enough when adjusting color, contrast, saturation, warping, stretching, and any other image adjustments.

In this second presentation Alain will use both Lightroom and Photoshop. Alain will focus on teaching you Artistic Techniques that will help you find your personal style.

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.

, will demonstrate the most useful and important new features of the latest versions. This is your opportunity to get ahead of everyone else by learning this software with the top expert in the field and putting it to use immediately on your own images.

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 - Jeff's personal Lightroom and Photoshop tips and techniques
We all have personal techniques that we use in our work. Those are shortcuts and tips that we discovered and that are not publicly available. In this presentation Jeff will show us a selection of his favorite tips and techniques. Be ready to learn something unique!

Personal Work

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, including Canyonlands, the San Juan River area, the Valley of the Gods, Hovenweep, Navajoland and 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.

Glenn Gilchrist
Summit Participant

Thursday, November 8th, 2018

Travel:
On Thursday, we will travel from Bluff to Monument Valley with many stops along the way. We will explore the Valley of the Gods and later the Goosenecks of the San Juan River. We will photograph Sunset at Monument Valley, one of the Jewels of the Southwest and a fitting ending for a superb photographic itinerary filled with fantastic possibilities for unique photography.

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 Monument Valley that evening or start driving back to your destination after sunset.

Photographic Instruction:
-How to design and start a personal photography project.

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.

There is of course no obligation for you to stay at the Summit hotel. You are free to stay at any other hotel you like. There are many hotels to choose from in Moab, all within short driving distance from the Summit hotel.


The 2018 Summit Hotel is the Moab La Quinta Inns & Suites

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 Moab as well as a list of hotels in the Moab 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 because 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.

-We have a no tag-along policy. Spouses, friends, significant others and non-photographers need to be registered as full-time participants to join any aspect of this workshop. This includes lectures, meetings, print reviews, meals, travel, the vision field workshop and all other aspects of this event. 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.
