BARBARA NELSON, photographer, journalist and event producer. Barbara's productions include custom workshops and seminars for visual artists and professional associations. A background in Radio & TV and magazine publishing, plus extensive international travel to explore many diverse cultures, helps to identify unique places for workshop locations. Each workshop is tailored to the location for maximum learning experience in a stimulating environment.  Images have been in galleries and non-traditional spaces across the country, also in private collections.

For all the workshops and productions, I first visit the locations to establish good relationships with the residents, to insure a successful trip and unique experience for the photographers on the journey.  Recent locations included Uzbekistan, Ecuador,  Galicia, Spain, Barcelona, Italy, and Highlands of Scotland., Georgia & Armenia+ Doha.   Earlier photography locations included Vietnam, Laos, Indonesia (multiple Islands including Irian Jaya), Turkey, India.
