What Makes Our Landscape Photography Workshops Different?

Landscape photography workshops are often (and justifiably) criticized for simply herding people around from one location to another with everyone taking the same exact photos. I know that I’ve certainly had my fill of “master” level workshops where the itinerary I paid to experience never happened, anyone willing to pay the tuition was allowed into the course, the classroom teaching and instructional time never materialized, with the one-on-one mentoring nothing more than just an illusion. You deserve better!

Our workshops and photo expeditions are all about photography. Your photography. They include a unique blend of capture time in the field, guided hikes, 4x4 travel to remote locations, one-on-one mentoring, and class time for post-production instruction. More important than just getting you to some of the best and most remote areas at the best times of the day, our photo expeditions will challenge you to take your photography to the next level and to develop your own photographic voice.

Out in the field, we’ll explore different approaches to scene visualization, ground/sky/sea compositions, and how to manage complex highlight and shadow scenes using techniques such as dynamic bracketing, focus stacking, framing, and neutral density filters. Back in the classroom, we’ll spend time developing your post-production workflow – learning when Lightroom is enough and when you need to move your work into Photoshop – using techniques such as luminosity masks to create and solve contrast, color, and blending issues.

You’ll benefit from our guidance, hours of capture time in the field with an experienced mentor by your side, and classroom instruction as you learn new techniques and strategies for creating dynamic images.
