Kathmandu Within The Frame

I’m very excited to announce a photo tour and workshop in Nepal this October (3rd to 16th) with David duChemin. We are going to take just eight participants with us on this Kathmandu Within The Frame tour and workshop, inspired by David’s best-selling book Within The Frame.

We will explore ancient Buddhist and Hindu religious sites in Kathmandu and the Kathmandu Valley as well as Newari culture and architecture in Bhaktapur and Bandipur and the spectacular panoramas of the Himalaya Mountains in Nepal.

The Kathmandu Valley, where we will begin, is a spectacle of temples, stupas and shrines and remains a testament to the architectural mastery of the Newars, who most likely invented pagoda architecture and have, for 1,500 years, been renown for their craftsmanship.

This is not going to be a rushed tour, running from stupa to shrine to temple to grab a quick photo as proof that we were there. We’re going to absorb, linger, take the time to wait for the excitement of the new and exotic to blend with an understanding of our surroundings, to find our vision. We’ll photograph in the early mornings and evenings, spend mid-days talking, discussing, learning and working to develop our craft.

    I am going to sound like a broken record and say, again, how I wish I could join you. First Italy and now Kathmandu! It sounds like a dream :)
