Sneak Peek at Three of Our 2012 Workshops

We typically announce our upcoming courses in October by way of our catalog and website. Occasionally, some of our programs are so exciting that we can’t help but spill the beans a little early. This is one of those years.

We have three workshops in particular that we are very excited about: Storybook Holland: Focus on Flowers with Allen Rokach and Eileen Rafferty, Bella Italia: The Tuscan Way of Life with Tony Rizzuto and Elizabeth Stone, and Alaskan Adventure with Michael DeYoung.

All three workshops take place in amazing settings and are taught by world class instructors.

Co-taught by RMSP’s own Eileen Rafferty and Allen Rokach, former lead photographer for Southern Living Magazine, Director of Photography for the NY Botanic Gardens and the Netherlands Tourism Bureau. We’re arranging charming small hotels to give you an authentic experience in the Netherlands.

We’ll be photographing:

  • Bulb fields in Bergen.
  • Windmills in Lekkerkirk.

  • Plus, Allen has a few surprises up his sleeve.
