Yosemite 21-26 Feb, 2018!
Winter in Yosemite is magical that simply has to be witnessed and shared! It’s been over a decade since Sharon & I have spent winter time in Yosemite so off we’re going and we want YOU to share it with us!
This is a landscape and wildlife adventure with rocks and rabbits, falls and owls with a coyote and deer thrown in for fun. If you’ve ever been to The Valley in the summer, you will not recognize it in the winter accept such treasures as Half Dome, El Capitan, and Yosemite Falls. But others like Horsetail Falls (the red falls below) Lunar Rainbow and Ice Cone only appear in February.
We’re taking eight folks on this adventure. We’ll pick you up in Sacramento so you don’t have to deal with snowy, icy roads and bring you to The Valley and then take you back to the airport. We’ll be sharing with you all our favorite and secret locales for grand views and critters. Might even treat you to a hot chocolate by the fire as we venture into the digital darkroom. It will be a grand time. The price for all of this and more is $1895. If you want to join us, give Sharon a call 661.204.1506
We have a Yellowstone Adventure, 18-23 May 2018. We going these dates specifically for wildlife, Elk & Bison with calves, migrating and nesting birds but you’re in Yellowstone, so geysers and sweeping landscapes are all part of the Adventure as well! You can pretty much figure we’ll be exploring the entire park, the features, fall color, spring greens and all the critters we can. We can’t wait!
You’ll fly into Bozeman, MT where we’ll pick you up and head down towards West Yellowstone where we’ll be based most of the time. Because of the nature of shooting in Yellowstone, we’ll be working out of one vehicle so everyone has their own window to shoot out of. We will be taking just three photographers per Adventure. The price is $2180 which covers instruction, transportation to and from airport and entire week and a whole lot of fun! Call Sharon 661.204.1506 if you’re up for the fun and challenge!
We’ve been up in WA and really smitten by The Palouse! I’m not sure why it’s taken us this long to get here but I love it! I want to come back up to photograph it when’s its green so we’re offering a trip for 6 folks 23-28 April (in 23rd & out the 28th out of Spokane). This is simply an amazing place and the possibilities seem endless. We’ve already been to places you don’t see in print which is really spinning my imagination. The price is $1895 which covers transport once on location, guiding, instruction and entertainment. Oh yeah, a bit of education, as well as this, is a bit of a new world of landscape photography. This is a long landscape shoot just as much as pano which makes it such a photographic delight.
You’ll fly in and out of Spokane, WA and we will more than likely base out of Pullman, WA (TBD). We’re taking six shooters who want to do landscapes and wildlife. The price is $1700 which covers transportation to and from the airport, instruction and this trip, ice cream! If you’d like to join us, give Sharon a call today 661.204.1506.
We are very excited to announce a Madera Cyn, AZ bird trip 08-13 July, 2018 based out of the famous Santa Rita Lodge. This is south of Tucson, AZ and has been a hotbed for birders for decades. This is the Costa Rica of the US with over 20 Hummingbird species alone to see and photograph! You have options of lodging from rooms to cabins and Santa Rita Lodge, all with feeders literally right our your window chuck full of great birds. The birds come right to the camera. This is an old haunt of ours we’ve not visited for a decade and we’re very excited to be going back!
This is a long lens, short lens, flash, ambient intense workshop working with birds, lots of birds! We only have room for 5 shooters. Price is $2600 which includes instruction and all the sun tea you can drink (transportation to and from Tucson airport as well). If you’d like to join us, give Sharon a call 661.204.1506!
The Grand Tetons … oh my what a gorgeous part of our wild heritage! I’ve truly not spent enough time in this gorgeous locale so Sharon & I are heading back in 2018 and want to take eight of our best friends along. While it might be a “landscape” workshop don’t think for a moment we won’t stop for critters like … MOOSE (go figure)! We’re targeting fall color to put up against those majestic granite spires and throw in some moody clouds for some amazing photo opps. We will, of course, head to some of the iconic Grand Teton locales and some you’ve perhaps never heard of. And simply can’t forget the amazing breakfast awaiting us to warm up after that glorious sunrise. We simply can’t wait!
The dates are 8-13 Oct 2018 and the price is $1895. That price includes transportation from the Jackson Hole airport and back again at the end of the week. It also includes entrance into the park, instruction in the field and digital darkroom for just eight shooters (sorry, no spouses). Lodging & meals are not included (but rooms have been secured for our adventure). If this sounds like the photographic inspiration you’re looking for, please give Sharon a call 760.924.8632 (9-5PST M-F). Looking forward to sharing this with you!

Alaska Moose 22-27 Oct, 2018 $2190
This will always remain one of my all-time favorite adventures! It’s time to head back to see my northern cousin, the Alaskan Moose. In talking with colleagues up in AK, it would seem that the slow change in temps has changed the habits of the mating in the Chugach. I wanted more opportunities of Moose interacting, we’re going 10 days later in 2018. This is the one Adventure of ours where walking is a part of the shooting at least 3 days of the Adventure. The walk is not strenuous but is about 3 miles one way through some amazing country where you might see grizzly, wolf, and moose all from one spot. We will be taking six shooters on this trip. The price includes instruction, guiding, transportation once you arrive in Anchorage. If you’re interested, give Sharon a call 760.924.8632 (9-5PST M-F). She will ask you a bunch of questions to see if this is the right trip for you because it’s pretty hardcore for one amazing photographic opportunity! Hope you can join us!
Master Light Program – Moose Peterson and WRP over a decade ago launched MLP, an opportunity for the serious wildlife photographers to take their photography to a whole new level. Moose Peterson’s Master Light Program is a three-month intensive shooting, teaching and learning experience for those who want only the very best from their wildlife photography. The normal process is sending in a written proposal to be accepted into the program. Because of his schedule, we are not accepting any proposals and don’t expect to until 2018.
