A Gathering, Asilomar, Pacific Grove CA. Oct 9-15 WAIT LIST and Oct 26- Nov 1

A week-long celebration of inspiration, creativity, thoughtful inquiry, and photographic art. Truly, a community sharing with Keron Psillas and Elizabeth Opalenik.

Elizabeth and Keron have chosen mid-October, and late October, to offer 6 nights and 7 days of photography, guest lectures, field activities, gallery talks, stillness and relaxation, in an environment supportive to all. Asilomar, in Pacific Grove, California, will offer us a tranquil, comfortable base for exploration, internal and external.

A spectacular program of instruction, review, world class gallery visits, and wonderful shooting locations is tremendously enhanced by our guest lecturers. Gentle yoga each morning will be offered (fully optional) to begin our day energized! This program is without parallel. We’ll be joined by amazing artists, writers, gallery directors including Ryuijie, Ann Jastrab, Alan Fitzgerald, Brian Taylor, Brigitte Carnochan, Martha Casanave and many others. The Monterey Peninsula is a treasure trove of photography luminaries! Come meet them, share a meal and their work. We will also visit the Weston home and learn about that connection to photography through Gina and Kim Weston.

We are limited to ten guests in each session. We fully expect to fill each, but we will begin with the first session from October 9-15. The first session is an all-female gathering. The second session is open to males and females, October 26- November1. We will work with mylar reflections, be on location at Point Lobos to really explore and on the beach with dancers one day. We'll learn all we can about iPhones and ourselves as we share in the possibilities for making images.
