Fine Art Landscape Photography and Workshops
It's officially winter, at least thats what the calendar says. It's been an unusually warm winter so far, as I write this my thermometer outside is flirty with 80 degrees, unbelievable. It's been very dry here in California, as it has across the country, with little in the way of rain or snow, the latter being of particular disappoint to me and other photographers as few things can make a scene more beautiful then a fresh dusting of morning snow. I still have my fingers crossed that winter will eventually arrive but my hope fades a bit with each passing day. I just returned from my Winter in Yosemite
photography workshop for 2012 and while the conditions in Yosemite weren't very wintry it was still a great workshop, filled with great people, a lot of fun and tons of wonderful images. If you'd like to see how the workshop went head on over to my blog
and read the recap
. I'm already looking forward to the 2013 workshop. As the coming weeks progress I'll be traveling as much as possible with a trip planned to The Big Sur Coast, Yosemite, Santa Cruz and hopefully more. If you're in one of these area and see me on the trail be sure to say hello.
The above image is my newest Fine Art photography print to be released, Yosemite Chapel. I created the image in May of 2011, yes you read that right May. While 2012 has been dry, 2011 certainly wasn't and this image is a great example of that. The Chapel is the oldest building in Yosemite Valley, part of the original Yosemite Village, and one of the most lovely. While the chapel is a beautiful sight any time of year a fresh dusting of snow really makes it something extra special.
Yosemite Chapel is available in sizes from 11×14 to 30×40 and would make the perfect compliment to any home or office decor. Purchasing information can be found here. Art consultant or Designer? Please contact us for a quote based on your project’s needs, 209-541-1815 or
**Grand Teton in Fall Photography Workshop Coming Up**
Grand Teton National Park is one of the most remarkable and beautiful places in the world. Known for it's rugged peaks and natural beauty of the Teton, Snake river, wildlife and much more it's been one of my favorite places to create images for a long time. My next landscape photography workshop, Grand Teton in Fall, takes place September 25th through Septem 28th and there is still a few spaces available!
We'll spend our mornings and evening photographing waterfalls that drop into the ocean, rugged coastline and hidden sea arches in one of the most awe inspiring locations in the world. The Jackson Hole area is known for it's fabulous art scene and wonderful food and we'll have a chance to experience that too. This is a fall nature and landscape photography workshop not to be missed!
In addition to the beautiful locations we'll be shooting, the middle of the days will be used for discussions, lessons and print sharing in an informal classroom setting. I keep the workshops very small, usually no more than 8 participates, so I can give personal attention to everyone.
As always, one of my goals for the workshops is to make them available for everyone and to fit everyone's budget. I truly believe that these are the best workshops available.
If you'd like more information regarding my upcoming photography workshops please check out the workshop page of my website. There you can find both general information regarding the workshops or specific information on each. I hope you'll join me for what is going to be a fantastic workshop one of the most beautiful areas in Wyoming and the American West.
**Upcoming 2012 California, Wyoming and Arizona Photography Workshops, Yosemite, Grand Teton and the Big Sur Coast**
I've finally finished setting my workshop schedule for 2012 and in addition to the workshop above, I'll be heading to many more wonderful locations in both California, Wyoming and Arizona in 2012!
We'll be heading to some of the most photographic places in the world, Yosemite National Park
, The Big Sur Coast
and Fall Colors in the Eastern Sierras
cover the California workshops
. In addition, for 2012 I've added a very special workshop to the gem of Wyoming, Grand Teton National Park
in late September to capture the beautiful colors of fall. Grand Teton NP is perhaps my favorite place in the world, the park has something for everyone and fall is the perfect time to experience the park in all it's glory. Trees will be turning beautiful shades of yellow and orange, the air will be clean and crisp and young bisons will be running around everywhere, it should be amazing! These areas are known for their beauty, which is why they've been a favorite subject for photographers such as Ansel Adams, Edward Weston and many more. You can find information regarding them on the workshops page
. I'm keeping the groups small and the cost low to make them beneficial for everyone. Please feel free to give me some feedback, I'd love to hear it.
