    Congratulations. DO I understand right that most your workshops do not happen in Italy but in USA?

    My congratulations too, Vieri. Between your work and the time you spend doing and wrtiting your reviews, you definitely seem a fine ambassador.

    Thank you Paratom, much appreciated. I have 2 Workshop scheduled in the US for next winter, 4 in Scotland between the end of March and April, and I am now in Spain to organise a new one for 2017 as well. I have a Workshop in Italy organised with Leica Akademie Italy, which will be announced on my website soon but which in the meantime you can find here:

    Thank you very much Dave, I am glad you are enjoying my work About the US, I will be there between the last week of Jan and mid Feb 2017 for my Workshops in Death Valley and the Southwest. Flying to Las Vegas, probably via NY, arriving there around Jan 20 to leave around Feb 13-14, I guess.

    sorry for the delay in replying, I was trying to find something like an "official definition" for you, but couldn't. In Italy, Leica Ambassadors are a small group of professional photographers chosen by Leica to cooperate in various ways, such as teaching in Leica Akademie's Workshops, lecturing, writing articles, etc.

    Congrats.

    If I remember correctly you have posted some very nice 645Z images here of the American South West.

    If you are in Las Vegas before year end you might want to take a look at the Leica Store Gallery where my American South West images are soon to be shown after leaving the Leica Washington, DC store on the 28th.

    Thank you very much Al!

    I will be in Vegas by the end of January, not before - will your exhibit be still on by then? Would love to see it!

    Not yet determined as Leica Washington DC just sent the exhibit out the Leica Las Vegas. I will know shortly when they plan to start the exhibit.

    Understood. Keep me posted, I was probably going to stop by Leica LV anyway, but if your work will be there I'll make sure to definitely go and see it. Best,

    I am sorry Doug, I am not going to discuss the terms of my agreement with Leica here or anywhere else, I am sure you'll understand.

    Thank you very much Mike! Iceland is in the works, but since I need to make at least 2-3 trips to a location, in different times of the year possibly, before being able to organise and announce a Workshop, it will be 1-2 years before I am ready to go. Next up, besides the WS already on my website, is Spain, which I'll announce very soon. Stay tuned!

    Thanks again, best
