The Spirit of Ecuador – Strabo Tours with Karen & Joel Schulman
September 16 - September 25
Join Karen and Joel Schulman on this photographic and cultural expedition in the fabulous Ecuadorian Andes, a land of endless discovery! This itinerary has been designed to provide you with the premier photo locations that Ecuador has to offer, as well as immerse you in the Ecuador the typical tourist does not get to see. Ecuador is rapidly becoming a prime destination for photographers and naturalists because the land is being wisely protected with a system of national parks and private reserves.
The emphasis of this tour is on the development of personal vision and creative spirit. Karen and Joel are both accomplished professional photographers and skilled photo instructors. They will share ideas and knowledge to help you create wonderful travel photographs, whether using a DSLR or an iPhone! Karen is a recent winner of the NANPA 2021 Showcase Judges’ Choice Award in the Altered Reality category: https://nanpa.org/events/showcase/karen-schulman/
Joel is an expert in the digital imaging world and has done photographic printing for some of the most notable names in fine art photography. He will share his knowledge of both the technical and creative aspects of the photographic medium: http://www.photographicsart.com
