Photography Tours and Expeditions
All of my tours for 2020 and part of 2021 have been cancelled due to Covid-19, but I am leaving them posted below as I may try to renew them in the future.
Small Group and Individual Tours and Workshops
I conduct many small group or one-person workshops in a variety of locations that have included Big Sur, Yosemite, Yellowstone, Nipomo Dunes and Tanzania.
people become more familiar with new and complex cameras before they embark on important trips.
Individual or small group workshops are a fun and effective way to improve your photography skills quickly. I work directly with you to design these sessions to match your current skill level, so it does not matter if you are a beginner or novice, our time together will be tailored to fit your personal needs.
In many of these classes we travel down the Big Sur coast to several locations and focus on photographing the landscape. We can work on getting correct exposure by using histograms, elements of composition and how and when to use a polarizing filter. More advanced techniques can include stack focusing and long exposures with slower shutter speeds using neutral density filters.
Full day workshops can be divided into two sessions so we photograph in the late afternoon or at sunset to take advantage of better light and then process these images in Lightroom or Adobe Camera Raw in a second session on the following day.
The charge for a full day workshop is $850.00 and a half day is $450.00. Full day workshops include lunch and a copy of my new book, Big Sur Revealed. Each additional participant is $195.00. I am happy to work with small groups provided they share similar interests and have approximately the same skill level.
For shorter time periods, such as becoming familiar with your new camera or an introduction to post-processing, my fee is $125.00 per hour.
Big Sur One Day Photography Tour
Saturday, October 24, 2020
8 AM - Sunset (6:20 PM)
October is a wonderful time to visit and photograph along
the Big Sur coast. The days are usually sunny and warm with occasional clouds.
This tour is limited to 10 participants and 5 spaces are currently available.
Eastern Sierras Photography Tour and Workshop
July 19-24, 2020
This tour is timed to coincide with the new moon, which
will allow us to photograph the Milky Way in several locations
with little or no ambient light.
Sorry but this tour is full. Please contact me to add your
name to a waiting list.
September 7-17, 2020
I have chosen early September for this tour because
the day and nights have about the same number of
hours. This will allow us to photograph landscapes
and waterfalls during the day and search for the
aurora borealis and Milky Way at night.
Winter In Yellowstone
February 5-10, 2021
Visiting and photographing in Yellowstone National
Park during the winter months should be on everyone's
"bucket list". The summer crowds are gone the snow
and cold temperatures usher in a feeling of peace and
tranquility. I cannot think of a location in the world
that offers such a rich combination of wildlife and
landscape photography in a single environment. Yellowstone
has the largest number of active hot springs and geysers
in the world and the resulting localized warm temperatures
create a unique environment that allows bison to wade in the
rivers with snow on the banks while trumpeter swans and
bald eagles remain year round.
Sorry, but this tour is full. Please let me know if you would like to be
added to a waiting list. People on the waiting list will have priority for the 2022 tour.
