About Lebanon

"My Lebanon is a serene mountain sitting between the sea and the plains, like a poet between one eternity and another.” -Khalil Gebran

This workshop will be a transformative experience, creatively and culturally. Participants will spend time exploring and shooting urban and rural environments in a country that few have seen. 


Dan and I will guide you in shooting a variety of subjects and locations through assignments focusing on intent, technique and composition. Wide Angle’s philosophy is simple: deep creative and cultural experiences in lesser-travelled but historically significant countries.
