Some folks are born teachers, and some born photographers, but the accomplished photographer who can also teach is a rare gift indeed. Such a man is Ralph Clevenger, who has been working on the cutting edge of this field for thirty years but never tires of sharing his insights and skills with students of the art…”. George Lepp




Thanks for leading a most enjoyable photo trip to Alaska. This was my second trip with RAC_120828_041you and I could no’t be more pleased. You seem to know when I need your expert help and when I like to be left alone to experience and photograph in my own way. I took your advice on getting a better tripod and camera bag after struggling with my antiquated ones on the first trip. The new equipment made the second trip much more productive and enjoyable. Your book Photographing Nature is getting dog eared as I put more of your advice to use. Thanks for the autograph. I’‘m sure Brooks Institute of Photography is pleased to have such a talented teacher on staff. Your ability to take your extensive classroom knowledge into the field and put it to practical use in a low key, enjoyable format is much appreciated.”   Dave Williams (Denali Photo Workshops — 2011 & 2012)


RAC_130201_068When you travel with Ralph Clevenger, you will have a workshop experience that is fun and educational. Ralph draws on his 29 years of teaching photography at Brooks Institute as well as his own success as a commercial photographer to answer questions about equipment and software with ease. He assists participants in the field by helping them find subjects to photograph and suggests different ways to capture those images. As an educator, he communicates easily with the unskilled, as well as skilled students, and he makes it fun for all.”  Karen Willes  (Alaska Photo Workshops at Camp Denali — 2007 & 2012)
