Dayak Dave Metcalf and Mark Rayner will be returning to beautiful Borneo
in April 2018. Between them, they have, led photo workshops to the world’s third largest island on five separate occasions. Borneo is big, bold and bursting with wildlife. You will get to photograph the beautiful, endangered orangutans, capture the magnificent Hornbill bird sweeping across the sky and experience indigenous tribal cultures, as we stop at small riverside villages and meet the Dayak people. David Metcalf’s long association with the Dayaks have allowed for unique visits to special villages. The Dayaks love to meet foreigners and willingly engage with you, the photographer, allowing for some excellent portrait photography and a genuine exchange of cross-culture dialogue.
This workshop begins in Bali (or Jakarta) and then the group flies together to Palangkaraya, the capital of Central Kalimantan where we spend the next 4 days in this area, exploring the waterways and villages of this ancient land.
Two nights are spent on one of the Wow Borneo boats and many opportunities to photograph the extinct Orangutans or people of the forest as the Dayak people call them. www.wowborneo.com
We will visit Dayak villages including Katimpun the home of Ransel Buku literacy and cultural teaching program that Dave has been involved with for the past five years.
You will engage with the children who will perform a special Dayak dance they have been learning for the past few months. It is said that the Dayak dancing and music is the best in all of Indonesia and you will get to see and photograph a very special performance from the Spirit of the Hornbills Dance academy, which Dave and Mark have been engaged with for the past six years.
This will be a special performance in the forest especially for the group, and something very, very unique. We will also provide opportunities for street photography in the Palangkaraya old town, colorful scenes down on the river, photograph traditional weavers and tattooists.
Then we fly to Pankalanbun and board a smaller boat as we head into the waterways and get up close and personal with Orangutans and Proboscis Monkeys and the loud, vocal Gibbons.We spend 2 days in Tanjung Puting National Park and will see plenty of wildlife, so the zoom lenses will be in overdrive, especially at dusk and dawn.
There will be time to review the photographs and get some tips from Mark and Dave incl some lightroom and photoshop instructions.
