About Michael O'Brien
Canadian photographer Michael O'Brien started working with a camera twenty years ago. Inspired by the work of the great Mexican photographer Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Michael began turning his eye toward Latin America. Since then he has worked at many areas of photography. To this day, photography and travel remain two of his biggest passions.

At one time Michael enjoyed a rewarding career in the printing field. This experience blended well with photography. He left that behind to pursue his photographic goals. He has traveled through Cuba, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Ecuador, Mexico and Brazil to name a few. While visiting Mexico last year, he made a portrait of a Mayan village in the Yucatan. A selection of these penetrating images were included in his exhibition at The Spanish Centre in Toronto.

To share his enthusiasm, Michael led travel photography workshops at the Ontario College of Art and Design and now teaches this course at George Brown college in Toronto. He also leads Ecuador Photographic Workshops, where he works with those who are passionate about experiencing different cultures. He will be announcing other locations in the near future.

In addition to his travel work, Michael does compelling portraits and is available for commissions.

Ecuador Photography Workshops
On this expedition I have partnered with Core Expeditions to offer you the opportunity to combine travel and photography. I will provide a hands on photographic learning experience as the tour travels through some of Ecuador's most dramatic landscape. Below are some of the subjects covered:

• how to make appropriate equipment
  
choices.
• portrait techniques.
• landing on our feet and making the
  most out of any travel situation.
• telling stories with images
• approaches to composition
• working with existing light conditions
• the landscape
• creating themes

Daily talks and instruction in the field will help you translate the beauty of this country and its people into enduring photos to take home and enjoy for years.

For more details about the workshop and the itinerary please visit the Core Expeditions website.
