2022 Big Sur / Carmel Workshop with Julian Calverley

 In ALPA, Brand Events, Cambo, Events, News, Phase One, Workshops 2020

Join us October 9th-13th, 2022

If you know Capture Integration, then you know that one of our favorite photographers in the world is Julian Calverley. Very few photographers reach “iconic” status, meaning that one look of an image tells the educated viewer exactly who the creator is, Julian is one of those few photographers! Not only is he amazingly talented and creative in his art, but he is also one of the most genuine people that you will ever meet.

CI has brought Julian to the US twice for tremendously successful workshops in the Pacific Northwest. For 2022, we are bringing him back again but this time to the iconic landscapes in Northern California. This intensive workshop is tailored for those wanting to further develop their skills photographing in the most captivating coastal scenery the US has to offer. Under the guidance of our close friend and customer, refine & develop your approach to the photographic process.

Not only will you be able to learn from one of today’s preeminent talents in our industry but we have arranged to surround Julian with some notable industry heavy hitters for you to pick their brains and learn from:

  • Hans Keist – ALPA Switzerland – CEO and Owner
  • Steve Cooper – Phase One – Vice President of the Americas
  • Dave Gallagher – Capture Integration – CEO
  • Brad Kaye – Capture Integration – Head of Technical Support
  • Justin Katz – Phase One – Technical Support

The Scottish Isles meets the West Coast

It was along the coast of the English Channel where Julian discovered his love for landscape photography. Surprisingly while shooting a commissioned project. It’s clear, when returning to the origin of his passion at the edge of any water, Julian seems to be at home, and its where he’s makes some of our favorite work. We boast a great deal of his imagery from the Scottish Isles. For this workshop in particular, we wanted to take the unparalleled aspects of these images that enchant us, and bring them to new lands. For the 2022 Carmel By the Sea Workshop with Julian Calverley, the Scottish Isles will meet the West Coast.

About Julian

Julian Calverley is a British landscape and advertising photographer. Born in Hertfordshire in 1964, he very quickly demonstrated a love and natural talent for drawing and painting, in particular watercolor landscape work. After a brief and uninspiring spell at art college, Julian realized it was the mix of photography and traditional darkroom skills that would allow him to express himself most effectively.

The next few years saw experience gained with various studios and in 1988, at 24 years old, Julian set up his first studio and darkroom. At home both in the studio and on location, shooting people, landscape, lifestyle, automotive and underwater, his cinematic style, mixed with a resourceful and passionate nature, has gained him a solid and trusted reputation with clients worldwide.

Preferring the qualities of autumn and winter light, Julian often works before dawn and after dusk. In all weathers, he captures the atmosphere of the scenes before him, often returning to the same remote locations time and time again. Landscapes can look so different, almost unrecognizable, from one moment to the next that Julian considers it vital to experience them in their varying weather conditions and sea states. His tenacity in revisiting these locations enables the apparent orchestration of truly unique moments.

In those moments, when the grandeur of the landscape combines unpredictably with the elements, the stage is set and Julian feels huge excitement in connecting with his surroundings. The finished pieces command a theatrical air; so wonderfully crafted, as if each facet to the image has been summoned into place at the click of a finger. It is this feeling of being there, experiencing nature and the elements in all their breathtaking glory that Julian conveys so effectively in his work.

On a technical note, Julian works with the ALPA camera platform, and matched Alpagon HR lenses, enabling him to record exceptional depth and detail. His camera of choice is the ALPA 12 MAX and, for extended trips, he favors the ALPA 12 STC. These unique manual cameras are simple and precise in their operation and, when paired with the PhaseOne IQ180 digital back, provide the exceptional quality required for his large format work.

He now divides his time between personal and assigned work, and is represented in the UK by the Lisa Pritchard Agency, London, in the US by Greenhouse Reps, New York and in Asia by Alphaville, Hong Kong. His work has been featured in the Association of Photographers awards, and ‘Lürzer’s Archive 200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide’. He is the author of the book ‘#IPHONEONLY’ A book of landscape photographs made entirely on an iPhone.
