Untitled photo

This workshop will take you to one of the world’s most photogenic locations: the landscape of the Eastern Sierra Range. This workshop is open to of all levels of photography, using 35mm to large format, film and/or digital. You will be totally immersed with photography for 4 1/2 days of learning and fun. I have scheduled the dates to coincide with autumn leaves and the full moon. For those who have not been to this part of the Eastern Sierras you will be in for a big treat. It is one of the most scenic locations in the world. 

This workshop will mostly be about practicing and perfecting your craft. We will have daily discussions about "seeing", pre-visualization, and techniques. You will be shooting sunrises, sunsets, closeups, reflections, night scenes, wildlife and more. We will also present you a few exercises to help get your creativity flowing. These will be beneficial for all levels of photography experience.
