Meeting Marc Adamus

Sat Nov 28, 2015, 2:52 PM
A couple months ago I attended a workshop from the immortal Marc Adamus :iconmarcadamus:
I never anticipated attending one of Marc's workshops or meeting him, this experience was gifted to me by yevgeny
Marc was on dA very briefly and like many pros left entirely in favor of more professional sites.  You will find up to date stuff on his personal website and 500px
In the week I got to spend with Marc in Northern Montana my entire approach to landscape photography was changed.
The workshop was limited to 7 people, so everyone was sure to get a lot of personal attention. From the start, I was very impressed by Marc and his philosophy and approach to photos.  His approach is very tactical and precise, he does his research carefully and seeks out the best possible spots for the best possible light.  He always had a very accurate understanding of the weather, winds, clouds.  Few people can actually make a living from photography, much less landscape photography.  Marc has become a legend in the landscape photography world.  He spends 300+ days each year hiking, camping, traveling and chasing the best light in the most remote places and leading workshops around the world.  You won't find him in the typical touristy sites, everything is off the trail.  Here is a neat article about his approach:…
He's very approachable and helpful too.  The type of guy you want to share a meal with. I've been following his work for 8+ years and for me his photos are in a separate class beyond every other landscape photographer.  He is a visionary and understands exactly what kind of conditions he wants and what compositions will work best.
Over and over we would arrive at a spot and he could predict the exact camera settings we would need to make the scene work.  The daily routine was pre-sunrise hikes to locations, sunrise pics then breakfast.  Post processing took place during the middle parts of the day when the light was flat and there was nothing to shoot.  Then depending on the weather, we would set off in mid to late afternoon for sunset or pre-sunset hikes / photos.  He had a very intimate understanding of the area and wilderness.  If the light was good we would skip dinner and chase the light.
I returned with over 2500 photos and a completely overhauled workflow.  Halfway through the trip I had to go to town to get more memory cards.  The workshop was immensely thrilling and satisfying.  I will be going through and tweaking photos for months.  This was my first workshop with him and I plan to attend more.  His workshops book far in advance, usually 1-2 years in advance, and sell out within a day or two after being announced.  Professional chef turned professional artist, he's the toughest bloke I've ever met.  He can scramble over tough terrain with ease, people in the workshop nicknamed him the rabbit.  Blink and he's gone, 100 feet up a slope.  His philosophy statement is worth a read:

Hello! I ended up using your amazing Eclipse photograph in my channel trailer, and YouTube automatically selected it to be the thumbnail. I hope that's ok. You've done the Earth a great service! Thank you!…
