We’re excited to announce that we’ve extended our new small group workshops to TBEX Cancun. If you’re interested in some extended time to hone your craft, these workshops, led by award winning instructors, are a value-priced add on to your TBEX Cancun registration.

Both workshops are offered on September 9-1oth, 10 am-4 pm (time approximate), at the Moon Palace Conference Center.

Travel Photography Workshop

Topics covered will include:  learning how to get more out of your equipment, composition, travel considerations for your gear, post-processing, and more.

The second day of the workshop will include a photo shoot, giving participants the opportunity to put all the skills together in the field. Participants will select their best work from the photo shoot to create a short photo essay.

This small group session is limited to a maximum of 10 participants, and is open to registered TBEX Cancun attendees only. Add on workshop fee is $200.

Travel Writing Workshop

Don George headshotDon George wrote the book on travel writing. Literally. And as the co-founder and chairman of the acclaimed Book Passage Travel Writers and Photographers Conference, he knows a thing or to about teaching travel writing.

In this travel writing workshop, Don will focus on the art and craft of travel writing: how to find, shape and build a successful travel story. What will make your travel story stand out from the crowd?  He’ll cover some of the practicalities of being a travel writer in the field – what to do when you land in a place, how to move through , how do to process, and what are you looking for.

The workshop will be a mix of lectures and in-the-field writing exercises and discussion.

Don’s goal – and ours – is for you to come away from this workshop with a clear sense of your options for travel publishing, how to construct a compelling travel story, what it takes to break into different media and how to move from one level to the next, and how to apprehend and evoke a place most effectively as a travel writer.

This small group session is limited to a maximum of 10 participants, and is open to registered TBEX Cancun attendees only. Add on workshop fee is $200.
