Enjoy a weekend to the Sierra Nevada Range photographing the Alabama Hills, Sierra Mountains, Manzanar and the town of Keeler California. October 26 - 28, 2012

Many people think the Alabama Hills are in Alabama. They are not!

The eastern side of the Sierra Nevada Range is a great destination for photographers.  Between the steep, eastern escarpment of the Sierra and the town of Lone Pine, are the Alabama Hills. Boulders the size of buildings lie scattered across the hills creating a highly textured foreground of smooth and rounded shapes with a dramatic view of the rising Sierra peaks above. Photographers will quickly see the possibilities. 

This workshop will be very informal and fun. You will get plenty of opportunities to take a variety of photographs. We will have discussions about techniques and creativity each day. This trip is about shooting — lots of shooting.

We will photograph sunrise at the Mobius Arch, the moonlit landscape of the Alabama Hills, the town of Keeler, and sunrise at Manzanar (the former Japanese American WW2 Internment Camp)  We will also do night light painting.

Lone Pine is 215 miles from Los Angeles. The workshop will begin at 4pm Friday, Oct. 26. We will be staying at the Dow Villa Motel or another of your choice in Lone Pine. You can look out your window to see a great view of Mt Whitney. It runs about $100 per night.

We will meet on Friday, October 26 at 4 pm at the Dow Villa Motel. We will do some shooting that night and a sunrise shoot the next morning.

The workshop will wrap up by 12 noon on Sunday.

The Alabama Hills Workshop will be limited to 12 people. There will be no serious hiking but sturdy shoes are recommended because of the rocky terrain.
