Drake Busath


Master of Photography, Cr.

According to Drake, he “grew up in a darkroom” as a second generation pro photographer, who has built a reputation and style all his own. Drake owns Busath Studio & Gardens, located in an historic mansion in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. With 12 artists and master printers on staff, the studio is renowned for its authentic family and children’s portraiture.

Drake’s photography has been the subject of numerous articles in photographic journals; he has been featured four times on the cover of Professional Photographer magazine; and he has been a regular platform speaker at Imaging USA. Drake enjoys sharing his expertise and has taught seminars to photographers across the United States as well as in Australia, Japan, Korea, and Canada. His images beautify homes and institutions the world over.

In 1999, Drake founded Italy Workshops, a series of photographic village tours and hands-on workshops. Drake has lived in or visited Italy frequently for decades. He is not only fluent in Italian, but he possesses a deep knowledge – and affection – for the country, its beauty, culture and lifestyle, making him uniquely qualified to lead these photographic workshops. Hundreds of photographers have joined Drake on what he describes as a “personal Renaissance” in Tuscany, Umbria, the Italian Riviera, Venice, the Lakes District, the Italian Alps, the Dolomites, the Puglia region, and the Amalfi Coast. Recently Italy Workshops expanded its adventures to include trips to France.
