Workshop Details

What's Happening:

Looking south through Paintbrush Canyon as alpenglow illuminates Grand Teton peak.

We will kick off the workshop Wednesday afternoon with an informal meet and greet session.  Students will have a chance to meet, mingle, and discuss what images they want to achieve.  We will cover and discuss a loose location schedule for the weekend.  Landscape shooting is very weather dependent so we are keep our locations and timing fluid.  The Grand Tetons offer countless vistas for both sunset and sunrise so we will be shooting both.  During the mornings we watch as dawn's first light graces the legendary peaks, followed by afternoon location scouting.  We will review images during down time and prepare for the final show of light at sunset.  The Grand Tetons are a fantastic location for black and white images so we will be sure to spend time exploring such techniques.  Voluntary night photography sessions (weather dependent) will be available for those with some energy left over.  Before heading home Sunday afternoon we will wrap up the workshop with a final image review session.  Fall weather in The Grand Tetons will likely be chilly, especially at night so bring appropriate (non cotton) layers. 


What You'll Learn:

With such varied and amazing terrain, this workshop will provide a wide range of lessons.  As always we be covering technical points such as camera setup, camera settings, and digital workflow.  Creatively we will focus on things like composition, light recognition, shutter effects, and subject selection.  We will have the chance to explore plenty of dynamic subjects such as moving water, autumn leaves, and hopefully vivid sunrises and sunsets.  The entire workshop will serve as a lesson in scouting and planning.  If night skies are clear, addition night photography lessons will be available for those with enough energy.  Each student will receive ample 1 on 1 guidance and images critiques throughout the workshop.  Daily post processing demonstrations and tutorials help guarantee that your images continually improve throughout the workshop.  Most importantly you'll learn how to have fun and relish the adventure!  View our full creative philosophy here.
