Tucson: the Old West – 4 spaces left
Dates: April 24-28, 2019
Tucson, Arizona Cost: $1299
Come photograph one of the most iconic landscapes of the West, the Sonoran Desert. Tucson is the perfect location to fully explore and photograph this mountainous desert environment. We’ve designed this workshop to be loaded with special photo opportunities, and timed to catch wildflower blooms in the desert. We’ve spent many years photographing in this area, and a blazing orange sunset framed by a towering saguaro cactus is an image every photographer should capture.
Spring Yellowstone – Space Available
Dates May 15-19, 2019
Gardiner, Montana Cost: $1199
Details: Established in 1872 as our first national park, Yellowstone is a natural wonder and photographer’s paradise. Encompassing more than 3500 sq. miles, Yellowstone is the biggest national park in the lower 48. The photography opportunities are stunning; turquoise thermal pools, geysers, roadside wildlife and towering waterfalls make this one of our favorite parks. Yellowstone is special for its wildlife including grizzly bears, wolves and the largest herd of bison in the US.
Badlands National Park – Space Available
Dates: June 5-9, 2019
Wall, South Dakota Cost: $989
Details: Join us for a trip to the Badlands during the height of wildflower season and calving for the bison herd. This spectacular land of rock and wildlife is the perfect place to work on both landscape and wildlife photography. We have timed the trip around the new moon as well, to give us perfect skies for astral photography. We will round out the trip with a visit to a local ghost town.
Redwoods & Rocky Coastlines – Space Available
Dates: July 24-28, 2019
Crescent City, CA and Bandon Beach, OR Cost: $1199
Details: Of all the wilderness areas in the US, Redwoods National Park may be the most awe-inspiring. It is home of the world’s largest and tallest trees. Walking through the redwoods in coastal California envelops the photographer in foggy, other-worldly terrain. The giant trees lumber toward the sky in a palette of chartreuse moss and deep red bark which contrast with the dark conifers. The Oregon coast is the second destination on our journey, a beachcomber’s paradise with layers of sea stacks. We chose the month of July for our workshop because it is the driest month of the summer. This offers the best chance to photograph beams of sunlight filtering through the fog.
