Moose offers a lot of different workshops from big, grand adventures to personalized one on one tutoring, from big game to the smallest rock. Our goal is pretty simple, help you make the most of YOUR photography. To learn about all the workshops we offer, here’s a quick description but call Sharon for the whole enchilada!
We are very excited to be offering All our Workshop / Adventure participants a full, one-year KelbyOne Pro Subscription (with paid registration starting July, 2018). This is being made possible by our dear friends at KelbyOne, which we are incredibly grateful for. This provides you to ALL of the KelbyOne Classes (and their discounts on other products) including Moose’s Classes.
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!
Arches 05-09 Nov 2018
Big sunrises and sunsets, iconic locales known throughout the world and that amazing red rock, Arches has that and so much more! It’s been too many years so Sharon & I decided it’s time to go back. With all the new technology in camera and software, those iconic locales deserve a revisit with fresh imaginations. We’re heading there Nov 05-09, 2018 for days of great light and friendship. We’ll walk up to Delicate Arch and stay up late chasing stars and we want you to join us! We have 6 spots (1 opening), picking you up at the airport (SLC), transporting you around until we take you back to the airport, provide education (behind the camera and computer), enlighten and a laugh or two, the price is $1795. We’ll be staying in Moab (lodging & meals not included in price). If you’d like to join us, give Sharon a call 661.204.1506

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!
Yosemite 26 Nov – 01 Dec, 2018!
Fall in Yosemite is magical that simply has to be witnessed and shared! It’s been a longtime since Sharon & I have spent fall in Yosemite with lots of water 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 go nuts seeing it dressed in fall color with such treasures as Half Dome, El Capitan, and Yosemite Falls. Fall is when we’re able to venture up to Glacier Point which is an E Ticket all on its own!
We’re taking six folks on this adventure. 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

Amazing FL Birds Adv
Feb 20-25, 2019!
I’m really excited to share with you our FL Birds East Coast Adv 2019! We spent some time there just a week ago scouting some really cool, new locales! Ya, you’ll see some of the West Coast birds but you’ll also see some really cool new and rare birds. In just one day, we had 54 species. We had an Iceland Gull, for example, very rare and very cool! We’re even more excited to have hired for at least 1-day locale birder extraordinaire, guide and photographer Jason Giraulo who will take us to a special, closed locale. It’s going to be a killer trip! You’ll lie on the sand and walk the marshes, be in a forest and even perhaps by a rocket!
You’ll fly into Orlando on the 20th, out the 25th. We’ll pick you up, take you around and bring you back. Not 100% sure where we’ll base out of as there are tons of great options, but most likely Palm Coast. The price for transportation, guiding and instruction is $1850. We are taking 6 shooters. If you’re interested, please give Sharon A CALL 661.204.1506 (9-5PST).
Flaming Gorge Bighorns
24-29 March, 2019
Nestled in the mountains east of Salt Lake City is a gorge, a jewel of our wild heritage. The Flaming Gorge is a gorgeous combination of Arches & Grand Canyon with water added in wrapped up in one location. Ya, I’m not going for that, but rather the Rocky Mtn Bighorn Sheep that populate the area (along with other big game). A long, legendary location for photographing Bighorn, it’s been on my hit list for a very long time. The time of the trip is for the best light with the best looking winter coats when the sheep are close but it still looks like winter light. It’s going to be a great trip!
I’ll be journeying with six shooters (only 2 spots open) with me so I’m inviting you to join me 24-29 March 2019 (flying into SLC the 24th, out the 29th). The main focus will be the Sheep but hey, since we’re there, we’ll do some landscape shooting as well (It’s not an ugly place). The price, $1750, includes transportation once you arrive at SLC until you leave, instruction, guiding, education and of course, entertainment (staying in the cabins of the fabulous Red Cyn Lodge (not included in price).
This is not a long lens Adventure! 400mm is the most you’ll need along with your normal landscape gear kit. This is not a hiking Adv, the Sheep, for the most part, come down to us. If you have any questions, please feel free to call. If you want to join me, and I hope you do, feel free to call as well, Ms. Sharon 661.204.1506.
