Fujian Architectural Traditions
Dates: Monday, October 7 to Thursday, October 17, 2013
Location: Fujian, China
This 10 day photography workshop explores two vital aspects of Fujian life: the coastal aquaculture industry and the Hakka Tulou. In a region where coastal aquaculture has become a predominant farming industry, we will visit the shallow bay area and capture images of the patterns formed in the sea by these extensive, artificial structures. Then we will head down the coast and inland to explore the best sites for Tulou, defensive structures built of hard-packed earth that house entire clans. For more information, visit Tours Abroad.
Myanmar, A Cultural and Photographic Exploration
Dates: Sunday, January 11 – Wednesday, January 22, 2014
Mike will be joining adventure travel photographer and outdoors man, Jock Montgomery, to lead a photographic exploration visiting the people and places of Myanmar. Mingle with a variety of ethnic groups: the colorful Shan, Palong, Akha hill tribes, the unique leg rowing fishermen of Inle Lake, the burgundy-robed Theravada monks and, of course, the everyday citizens wearing simple sandals and lungis (sarongs). All this is highlighted against a spectacular background of natural and devotional beauty, from stunning rural landscapes to ancient temples and ruins.
