Redwoods Workshop Wrap Up

I’m just back from my “Redwoods in the Fog” photo workshop for Muench Workshops. We had great shooting conditions including a nice mix of sunshine, overcast, and fog. The timing for the workshop was also excellent as the rhododendrons were just really starting to bloom. As usual, the area around Damnation Creek Trail in Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park had the most profuse bloom. Late spring/early summer is also a great time of year for photography in the Redwoods [read more …]

Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017!

Lamar Valley, Yellowstone National Park

In late September I had the pleasure of co-leading a photo workshop in Yellowstone National Park with Terry Donnelly. One of the areas we took the workshop participants to was Lamar Valley.

I’ll return to Lamar Valley next summer to lead another photo workshop for [read more …]

Primetime in the Palouse

I’m just back from leading a photo workshop in the Palouse country of southeast Washington state. I certainly wasn’t the only one leading a workshop or photo tour there, at the prime time for lush green fields of wheat, peas, and barley, but there’s plenty of room for everyone on Steptoe Butte and miles of farm roads to explore. It was great to see friends Jack Graham and Bill Fortney on the Butte with their workshop, and to run into [read more …]

Fall in the Eastern Sierra: Iconic Locations and Inspiring People

A couple of weeks ago I wandered to the east side of the Sierra Nevada in California to lead a private photo workshop, meet some long-time photographer friends, and make some photos of the fantastic fall color the eastern Sierras are famous for. The photo workshop was a great success, with my client declaring after the first morning that the trip had already paid for itself; we were treated to a spectacular sunrise at Mono Lake with a fresh dusting of snow [read more …]
