April 2011 The Netherlands Photography Workshop: Tulips, Landscapes, HDR and More!

One of the best times to visit Amsterdam is in spring, during the height of the tulip blooming season. Photographers travel there from around the world to focus their cameras on the dramatic colors and forms presented by Holland’s star flower – the tulip.

Based in Amsterdam, this workshop will take participants to ideal locations to photograph flowers, gardens, and tulip growing fields. We'll also photograph windmills, canals and castles. How cool is that!

During this 4 day/5-night, workshop, photographers will have an opportunity to work side by side with me as I illustrate how to capture the beauty of flowers, as well as country landscapes and charming villages.

In addition, I plan to use the local architectural features to teach you the finer points of HDR photography.

As former workshop participants know, I will offer lots of practical tips, techniques and advice in an entertaining and fun atmosphere. Yes! We will process our images in the digital darkroom. I'll be there to help.

What’s included: 5 nights hotel, 4 days touring by private motor coach, local guide, most meals and entrance fees.

What’s not included: air transportation, airport transfers, some meals, tips, and personal expenses.

Limited to 12 participants.

Dates: April 18 - 22, 2011.

$1,995.00 per person for double occupancy
$2,345,00 per person for single occupancy
(One of the best-priced workshops to this area on the web! Compare.)

Explore the light,

P.S. I used an iStock image to illustrate this post - as the workshop will be my first visit to The Netherlands. So excited to be going someplace new!

Hi Rick,

Will it also be possible to join your workshop without the hotel-stay? (For people living close to Amsterdam)
What will the price be then?

Greetings from the Netherlands,

Marco - It might be possible. Please send me an email at ricksammon at We have a package price for the bus, hotel, etc.. but I think we can work it out.

Thank you,

Hi Rick,

the tulips paradise near of Amsterdam is called "Keukenhof". It makes so much fun shooting there.
Check out my blog by clicking on my name above and type in Keukenhof in the search field. There are some of my images and a small video clip. Hopefully a good foretaste for your participants of what is to shoot there!
Feel free to put a link there and enjoy.

Keep going your great work Rick,

Hi Rick,

same comment as Marco;
I live near Amsterdam, so I was also wondering what the possibilities are for attending without the hotel-package.
