ALPA Workshop with Julian Calverley

 In ALPA, Events, News



Thank you for your interest in our 6th edition in the Master Series Workshops here at Capture Integration. I can’t explain how much we look forward to these events each year. The Master Series Workshops are a combination of the finest photographic equipment in the world, in the most gorgeous locations, with the talent of our most exceptional clients as instructors. And this one is no exception. For years I have been drawn in by this instructors work. Very few artists reach the position in their career where their work can be labeled Iconic. And I don’t make this statement lightly. I can only count on one hand how many of my clients where I would use the word Iconic when describing their art. When you see it you immediately know it’s theirs. And what I appreciate even more here is that it is created without pride or arrogance. Even the most beautiful places on earth can be diminished by egotism… especially in our industry. So it is my honor to introduce to you one of the most sincere and genuine artists I know as the instructor of this year’s Master Series Workshop, Julian Calverley. I am positive that you will agree with me about his work and his authenticity. Furthermore, representatives from ALPA, Team Phase One, and Capture Integration (including myself) will be there for technical support and our award winning customer service. I strongly believe that there isn’t a workshop series put on anywhere in the world that has this combination of knowledge, support, and photographic gear. I hope that you chose to join us this September in Olympic National Park. This is one that should not be missed.

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.

Julian runs an excellent blog where he records his ALPA camera setup on-location in the wild. Check out more of these at All images @Julian Calverley.

As such, please plan your clothing for almost any conditions; we recommend layers.

With nearly one million acres, Olympic National Park encompasses several distinctly different ecosystems and protects a rich mosaic of natural and cultural history. Untamed rivers flow from glacier-capped peaks through valleys of old-growth forests, waves crash against a shoreline rich with life, and only trails traverse the vast interior of this internationally recognized wilderness. Come explore!
