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. If you’re interested, give Sharon a call 661.204.1506.
11-13 August 2017 at the historic Duxford Aerodrome, UK is going to be the most exciting photographic workshop we’ve ever presented, ever! Hosted by Historic Aircraft Collection, we will explore, imagine and immerse ourselves in the photography of WWII history!
It all starts Friday evening the 11th with a presentation on basics to advanced techniques in photography and photographing aircraft. We have a block of rooms right off the Duxford Aerodrome so it’s convenient and close. We then start bright and early Saturday morning the 12th (before sunrise) on the field photographing some amazing aircraft: Spitfire, Hawker & Hurricane! We’ll then move into the digital darkroom to explore ways we can finish our static images.
After all that, you’ll be served a great traditional English lunch and eat where the pilots ate during WWII Battle of Britain. Then we’ll really get busy with more classroom instruction, reenactor portraits and then planes turning props with ground-to-air and backfire at dusk photography. Saturday night we will gather again to continue on with the education, enlightenment, and comradery that photography creates.
Sunday the 13th we’re up with the sun and on the Duxford Aerodrome for more photography of aircraft and reenactors. And this is not just for still photographers! Brent will be there teaching the art and craft of video, shooting and post so the visual storytelling is open to all! We’ll conclude all of this fun around noon on Sunday, but you are more than welcome to spend the rest of the afternoon enjoying and photographing all the activities. Phew if that wasn’t enough there is more, but we’ve gotta keep a couple surprises … surprises. Twenty folks will receive all this instruction and photographic opportunities, the special Challenge Coin, lunch and much more during the weekend.
We have just five spots left open of the 20 slots! The price for all that’s listed above is $1495 (lodging and an air-to-air is not included in this price). There is no online registration, you need to either email Sharon (to register and pay) or give her a call at 661.204.1506. Once you have paid your registration you will receive lodging and other details (this info will not be provided without registration). Also upon registration, you will be sent PDFs of information about gear, aviation photography concepts, and techniques. We have never offered a workshop quite like this, we are incredibly excited and look forward to sharing it all with you!!!
Yep, Jake and I are teaming up for two Yellowstone Adventures, 25-30 October 2017 and 18-23 May 2018. We going these dates specifically for wildlife, Elk in rut, 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 explore 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 two vehicles so everyone has their own window to shoot out of. We will be taking just FOUR photographers per Adventure (2 spots left). 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!

Our workshops are limited to a small group to provide you one on one instruction as you shoot, while you shoot, in the vehicle (we call drive together), at meals and during breaks. One of the many challenges is knowing the question you want to ask to get the answer you need to help you. All this time together provides you the opportunity to get that answer and so much more. Come, join us for fun, learning and great shooting! Call Sharon today 661.204.1506!
The Eastern Sierra, in particular Mono Lake, are spectacular in the fall! We’ve been granted a permit to have a photographic workshop at South Tufa, Mono Lake this October and we’re very excited! The Forest Service is only permitting two groups at a time at South Tufa this year which means to us, we basically have the place to ourselves!
Starting the evening of the Sept 30th, we’ll gather and talk about photography and get ready for the next day. Sunrise on 01 Oct, we’ll be on the shores of Mono Lake enjoying its beauty and celebrating it with our images. Then after breakfast, we’ll go through ALL the photos from the morning to learn from our efforts then head back out to explore the High Sierra. Then we’ll venture back to South Tufa for a gorgeous sunset shoot. And if that wasn’t enough, after dinner we’ll gather in the digital darkroom to learn how to finish and share our images.
The morning of the 2nd, we’ll start shooting heavenly bodies at South Tufa and then enjoy and shoot sunrise. We’ll join for breakfast and a crit of images and then disperse to head home. All this shooting and instruction, a written packet of all my favorite shooting locals are included in your registration (food, lodging & transportation not included). This is for a small group of shooters and the price is $595!
We’ll be based out of Mammoth Lakes, CA for this weekend celebration of Mono Lake and landscape photography (30 Sept – 02 Oct.). If you’re interested, give Sharon a call quick, 661.204.1506 to reserve your spot (only 1 left!).
Last fall when I went to Africa with Images of Africa Safaris, I was very fortunate to have our son Brent as part of the safari. He’s just released another delightful video of his work from there. And if you want to have this experience, I’m going back and you can find out details and reserve the one remaining opening here. Enjoy!
