Isabela , Puerto Rico. Join me for a photo workshop in Puerto Rico in late February or early March when it's going to be freezing in northern latitudes! I'm doing a workshop for the first time in SanJuan because I just returned and it's just a great place to shoot and learn. Scroll down a bit in this stream. I'm doing all of my own self produced workshops now in places where I am working on my BeachGames book. Working side by side with students and getting pictures up on the wall day by day seems to work. You work, I work. Great chemistry when it's for real. We did it that way in Rio in early 2015 and will do so next in Puerto Rico and sometime later in 2016 in Thailand. Yet after just being in PR, I know what a great place it is for shooting, easy low cost travel, safe, and just terrific people and landscape. I will take 12 serious students max and a portfolio review is required. I will also give one gratis scholarship workshop to a talented Puerto Rican. Keep your eye on www.burnmagazine.org (link in my profile) for details upcoming soonest. #puertorico #coconut #fujifilm
Crash Boat beach, Puerto Rico. Boys show off to the girls who are showing off to the boys. The way it's supposed to be on this family oriented beach. This beach is also often a challenging dangerous surf break known as Gas Chambers. It's always a summer day here for those of us who live up north. Ahhh I must leave Puerto Rico tomorrow. Yet for sure I will return soon. I just can't get enough. I've shot a lot for my BeachGames book in these last two weeks. Viva Puerto Rico!! Te amo🎈#puertorico #fujifilm #beachgames
El barrio La Perla. San Juan, Puerto Rico. This skate bowl and sometime swimming pool was built in 2005. The sweet beauty of this bowl is that it's right on the beach. Matter of fact this barrio occupies the best waterfront location in San Juan yet has avoided tourist development. The locals want to stay local. I get keeping things real. My son Bryan was filming, and Michelle and Lyla nearby. The family on assignment. The way we've done it many times over the years. We all loved our new La Perla family as well. An afternoon to be remembered forever. #puertorico #sanjuan #fujifilm #laperla #skateboarding #beachgames

We spent almost two weeks shooting in Puerto Rico where we had also teamed up for NatGeo TV about 20 years prior. I will have 12 students joining me in Old San Juan for a photo workhop March 13-19. My class will focus on the photo essay and Bryan will hold a small class as well on documentary filmmaking. Bryan has shot many docs for NatGeo and other venues . @michellemaddensmith is producing these two workshops so if you have any interest please contact her or see our workshop page on burnmagazine.org
For us it's been a family affair since Bryan and his brother filmmaker @erinharveypics started traveling on assignment with me when they were in grade school. Bryan and I are now in Tokyo where we just helped launch the XPro2 which I had been shooting (secretly) for the last few months.
My book "Divided Soul" on the Spanish cultural diaspora also had many pictures from PR. So work there has been on my agenda for quite awhile. Documentary films, photo books, exhibitions, and commissions are our life. The students we mentor have the same goals. Join our family affair if a life in photography appeals. I can't imagine a better way to learn and to express and yes to raise a family. @magnumphotos #xpro2 #puertorico
