ROMAN KURYWCZAK

Roman Kurywczak is a professional nature photographer for over 15 years who conducts lectures and workshops across the globe. His boutique tour company, Roamin’ with Roman Photo Tours, caters to small groups to provide the ultimate learning experience for participants. Whether he is out in Tanzania or standing before a roaring waterfall in Iceland, Roman’s energy and passion for nature photography are clearly evident.  You can often find him out in Arches or Yellowstone national park late at night photographing the nighttime landscapes and calling it fun! In the United States, Roman’s photographic adventures have led him from Alaska down to California all the way across to Florida and on up to Maine with only a few states left to explore. Future expansion plans include many international destinations. Closer to home, Roman will spend countless hours doing macro photography.  While he enjoys photographing insects, his favorite subject is flowers, which he buys for his wife and he is sticking to that story. Roman is equally comfortable photographing landscapes, macro subjects, and wildlife whether he is at some exotic location or close to home.

 

A proud member of the Sigma Pro team, you can find his galleries, blog, tour schedule, and more on his website: www.roaminwithroman.com

Festival Organizer Note About Field Workshops

We want you to enjoy and learn as much as you can in your field workshops. Therefore, it is important to arrive early and have all of your gear ready to go so you do not miss out or hold up the group. Each field workshop will begin with a 10 minute overview of the subject and techniques. Suggested gear lists are included with each field workshop.
