The Grand Canyon in fall: Sharon & I are taking a small group of photographers to Grand Canyon 1-5 October, 2014 to photographically explore this amazing landscape. You will arrive in Flagstaff, AZ which is the airport we will be picking folks up from and taking them back to. Transportation to & from the airport as well as for the week is provided. We are staying on the South Rim so some of our shooting is a simple walk. We have no set agenda, that’s one of the trademarks of our workshops, we chase the light but that will over the course of the workshop take us to the entire South Rim. We also spend time in the digital darkroom to help you finish your images. The price for instruction & transportation (once in Flagstaff) is $1995. Half is due on registration and the other half is due 30 days out. Information for reserving your room will be provided once you reserve your spot in the workshop. Lodging & food not include in the price.
We are thrilled to be able to offer a fall Yosemite Workshop in 2014! The dates are 05-09, Nov 2014. Our timing is for fall color/winter storms in the Valley, a spectacular event! You would arrive on the 5th for our evening get together and plan on leaving after sunset (dark) on the 9th. The price is $1795 which includes the workshop packet and instruction. Once signed up you would get more info in regards to lodging.
We are talking about a lot of photography (not a bunch of hiking) and some of the best and least known locations. If we’re really lucky, we’ll have a “winter” storm as winter storms blow in great clouds creating gorgeous landscapes. We’ll photograph everything from critters, waterfalls, granite, trees and whatever stops in front of our lenses in color and black and white. We’ll spend time in the digital darkroom answering those kinds of questions and hopefully we’ll get an opportunity for a star trail.
Hope you can join us, we look forward to sharing our decades of wanderings with you. To register, call Sharon at 760.924.8632 / 661.204.1506 (9-5) PST. You will need to pay a deposit of 50% to reserve your spot (we have a couple of openings)!
K&M Adventures is going to Costa Rica!
January, 2015 we're taking 6 folks (2 opening) to the most amazing, once in a lifetime photographic adventure! The site where I shot the D7100 campaign for Nikon, is a hidden Shan-gri-la like no other region I've ever photographed in before. We weren't even birding and we saw 108 new species of birds, three species of Kingfisher just on our kayak float! You wake up to the call of Howler Monkeys and the magnificent White Hawk flying overhead. The buzz of thousands of hummingbirds, a dozen species escort you on your walk around the lodge and I haven't even scratched the surface of the beauty that's awaiting! Some days, you might not even leave the veranda of the lodge, as there is so much great bird photography just steps from where you had breakfast. And then there are the short trips to the beach with the Black Mangrove Hawk and Macaws.
We are staying at the amazing Luna Lodge and have the most amazing guide Gary the entire week. The dates are 18-24 January, 2015. Price is $4395 (covers instruction/guides/entrance fees/transportation once at the lodge) and the group rate for airfare to and from San Jose to Luna Lodge, lodging in the bungalows, 3 gourmet meals is $2395. We are looking at a Sunday arrival at the lodge, following Saturday departure.
This will be the only time we're planning on taking a group to this gorgeous locale. I was hesitant to do it this time, not really sure I want to share it, it is that amazing. Hope you can make the journey with us. You will come back not only with amazing photos, but also changed!
And you can bring your spouse! Yeap, the Lodge has made the special package pricing available to non-photographer spouses who want come to Costa Rica, hit the spa, enjoy the views while you slave away behind the camera photographing all the hummingbirds, hawks and monkeys. This is a once in a lifetime adventure we hope you can join us on!
CA-OR 18-22 March ’15 – Tall trees, long beaches, rocky cliffs, gorgeous flowers and amazing food. Those are just some of the reasons we love the No California & Oregon Coast. Sharon and I are offering a workshop we’ve never done before but have always wanted to. We’re going to spend the first couple of days in the California Coastal Redwoods and then finish up the last couple of days on the Oregon Coast. We’re taking just five folks. Great photography, great food and lots of laughs are definitely part of it. We have one seat available so if you’re interested give Sharon a call at 661.204.1506.
K&M Adventures is going to the Smokie Mountains 13-17 May, ’15!
This is such a gorgeous place in spring with fog covered landscapes, young Black Bear cubs, waterfalls and carpets of wildflowers. We’re taking a small group there to share this great part of our wild heritage. We’ll be based in Townsend, TN and flying in and out of Knoxville, TN.
Listening to all the feedback from the last couple of years of weekend courses and requests we’ve received, we’ve come up with a whole new course. Our weekend classes are being held around the country and are evolving to help you evolve your photography in 2014. Simply put, Saturday is all about the camera click and Sunday is all about the computer click. We will be shooting on Saturday with your widest lens to your longest, with ambient light and flash. The techniques can be applied from critters to rocks and everything in between. Sunday we’ll take the images we shot on Saturday and finish them in the computer (we’re at the Westin the entire time). Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, there is information here to help your photography grow. The space is limited to 15.
