Carlan Tapp found his calling at a young age. Cross-country family road trips, a few years later a dirt bike, respect for the earthen landscape, and several years assisting Ansel Adams—all contributed to the photographic voice for which he is known.
It is the work that comes out of his passion—the open road—that helps to draw a devout following of students at Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, National Geographic Workshops, Pacific Northwest Art School, Maine Media Workshops and Anderson Ranch Center for the Arts. Some of his most enthusiastic fans come from the readership of Harley-Davidson HOG Magazine and New Mexico Magazine in which his road stories are often featured. His unique vision of the open road is such an enticement, you’ll have to make your reservation early for the ultimate in first-hand field photographic experiences: joining Carlan for a personalized, private, “Motophoto Tour.”
