  • "Man is born to die. His works are short lived. Buildings crumble, monuments decay, and wealth vanishes." -Percival Baxter

A two-day workshop experience where our focus will be drawn to the mystery, sense of loss, and unexpected beauty found in abandoned iconic structures. An essential collection of images to be had that grants permanence to places that will soon vanish forever.

Grain elevators, homes, churches (including epic Ukrainian onion-dome churches), mills, bridges, storefronts, old vehicles, abandoned movie sets, fantastic farmsteads, factories, ghost towns, vast landscapes and much more.

In comparison to other regions with dilapidated structures, the rundown beauty of these rustic old buildings blows me away. Observation in this sense is extraordinarily vital. It not only allows us to feel an intimate human connection with the people immediately before us but also begs us to think about where we are going next. Scouting with our eyes and cameras, we'll examine the layers organizing the elements of a vast space to create scale and graphic interest. Taking a closer look, we'll observe hundreds of vignettes, whereupon the vignette provides a closer and more intimate focus, serving to isolate visually revealing segments of the scene. In no time, you will have a compelling collection of stunning and melancholy photos, a storied collection that helps us hear these abandoned places speak.

“How to Find + Photograph Abandoned Manitoba" makes no assumptions about your ability with respect to photography. Whether you are an enthusiastic beginner or a seasoned professional is irrelevant. While I hope you'll benefit from my photography suggestions if you are a beginning photographer, my primary goal remains to provide you with a comprehensive location resource with which you can unleash your very own photographic talent.

Advice is based on my experience in the field, having been at many of these locations several times and under different lighting conditions. In many cases, I have also checked my notes against those of knowledgeable friends or acquaintances. After examining the indispensable photographic equipment, I'll discuss how to handle a number of generic situations you'll encounter in the field so you can create better images. I ask the more advanced photographers to be understanding if this advice seems trivial.

Now, where should you start and what should you do? The fact that you're reading this right now is your key to making the photos you've always hoped for. So congratulations, it's time to sign-up before all the discounted spots are gone.
