„Краси е отдаден фотограф и много добър лектор, от който можеш да научиш много неща. Освен голям професионалист, той е и човек, който никога няма да скрие нищо от „тънкостите”, които използва, за да направи перфектната снимка, и ще се опита да помогне всеки един от участниците в уоркшопите му да постигне напредък. Освен това, подобно изживяване ти дава възможността да се срещнеш с още много други хора, споделящи страстта към фотографията, с които можеш да обмениш опит. Определено участието в неговия уоркшоп беше много ползотворно изживяване за мен. Препоръчвам го на всеки! „

The iconic stretch of California coastline along Highway 1 offers photographers “the greatest meeting of land and water in the world”

Winding, Wondrous Big Sur
Text & Photography by Don Smith

Wam light from late afternoon sun pours through Keyhole Arch, Pfeiffer State Beach, Big Sur Coast, California, USA.

Sunset at Matterhorn Rock, Garrapata State Park, Monterey County, Big Sur Coast, California, USA.

Point Sur Lightstation and morning mist, Big Sur Coast, California, USA.

Monterey Cypress and orange algae. Point Lobos State Reserve, Carmel, California, USA. The orange, velvety algae, especially noticeable on trees and rocks of the shadowed north-facing slopes, is green algae named Trentapohlia. Its orange color comes from carotene, a pigment which also occurs in carrots. The growth does not harm the trees.

The Big Sur coastline is a magnificent 98-mile stretch of central California land and sea, from Carmel in the north to Cambria at the southern end. A massive mudslide in May 2017 closed parts of the famed Highway 1 route, requiring visitors to journey from either one end or the other, but repairs are expected to be completed by mid-September 2018, fully reconnecting north and south. I prefer to concentrate my photography and workshops on the first 27 miles beginning at the Carmel River. This is by far the most visually appealing stretch and offers an incredible amount of locations, both iconic and hard-to-find.

From the World Photographic Cup

The WPC was founded in 2013 as a cooperative effort by The Federation of European Photographers (FEP) and Professional Photographers of America (PPA). Its singular goal is to unite photographers in a spirit of friendship and cooperation. A Governing Committee has been created to conduct the ongoing affairs of the competition, also supported by UAPP (United Asian Professional Photography) and AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography). The brotherhood and sisterhood of photography is a bond that transcends language, culture, and geography. That’s the foundation behind the World Photographic Cup, an one of a kind international team competition. Sure, there are lots of other competitions, but there is just one World Photographic Cup.
