This past week saw the first of our new Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau workshops. Leading this workshop with Tibetan Connections, I tried to introduce the students to this amazing part of China through photography. It was a great success and was a fascinating to see the students discover this region in their own different ways. To see images of the participants in action, please go here to the Facebook page for our workshops.

In-between teaching, I had the opportunity to make some of my own images and use them as examples of what the students could achieve. By watching how I worked, I was hoping the students could replicate my methods in a way to improve their own photography.

Qinghai is a diverse and beautiful land. Sitting high on the Tibetan Plateau it is made up of mountain ranges and highland grasslands. The people of this region are predominantly Tibetan and as such have a unique and distinctive style and way of life. All of these facets we tried to capture during the course of our workshop.

I want to say a big thanks to all our participants this week. For anyone interested in my workshops, we have another trip planned for October, this time to Xinjiang, also in the west of China. For more information about that tour, please go here to the Wild China website.
