I’m only teaching a few workshops this year. One I wouldn’t miss is the Palouse workshop. The Palouse country of eastern Washington is one of the most under-photographed landscapes in the USA. It’s amazing and beautiful and the perfect backdrop for a field workshop.

Thankfully, even in this economy, the workshop sold out and I’m thrilled to be working with my one-time protegee who’s now a full-time pro shooter, Gary Hamburgh. I’ll co-lead the workshop with Gary and it should be fun.

I’m bringing a bunch of new gear to test and demo on this trip. I just picked up the Marshall V-LCD70XP-HDMI 7″ LCD Field Monitor for use with my DSLR Video work. Wow it has peaking & false color filters!

I am also bringing the new Induro PHQ3 pan/ballhead combo and the Induro CT414 carbon fibre tripod. I rarely say the word “wow” in association with tripods and bullheads, but at first glance, it seems appropriate.

I’ll also have the new ThinkTank Retrospective 20 shoulder bag filled with gear. This thing is beefy and well made.

Last but not least, I’m woking with the latest 4/3 camera from Olympus. The E-P2 is going to be my new “point and shoot” camera.

It should be an exciting week. I’ll have reviews of all this stuff in the next two weeks sometime and I’ll be posting some images from the Palouse either here on Photofocus or in the Photofocus Flickr Group.
