The details are still being worked out, but the 2-to-2.5 hours workshop will be on Thursday January 29th starting at 6:30pm at Adorama in New York City.
The following is the basic information for the evening workshop:
Travel Logistics For Photographers : 101
Traveling as a photographer can be complex and frustrating with the constant change in airline regulations and security rules. With some basic knowledge about how to plan your travel, pack your equipment and find your way around specific baggage restrictions and fees, traveling with your equipment can be simple, easy and stress free.
During this course professional photographer Steven Frischling, creator of Flying With Fish (www.flyingwithfish.com), who has flown nearly 1,000,000 miles as a photographer during the past few years, will introduce you to detailed tips on how to travel as a photographer. Steven's information is relevant for amateur photographers going on vacation and professional photographers headed halfway around the world.
This workshop will focus on some choosing your equipment to save on space and weight; choosing the right style bag for your needs; basic packing techniques to maximize your space and reduce the potential for damage to your equipment; basic paperwork for travel in foreign countries; avoiding certain carry-on baggage weight restrictions; dispelling some myths about traveling with camera equipment and basic tips for reducing your likelihood of becoming a thief's target.
As every traveler has their own specific needs, participants are encouraged to bring as many questions as they'd like. The goal of the workshop is to have everyone go out into the world better informed on how to travel easier, safer and more stress free as photographers.
The cost of the workshop (which should be around the cost of excess baggage for flying many US carriers) and the sign up details will be posted when made available by Workshops @ Adorama
