Travel Photography Workshops
Experience the difference of learning in a small “boutique” travel photography workshop with a master photographer by your side. My full-immersion photography workshops offer an unparalleled level of personal attention with world-class instruction in an experience designed to keep you focused on your photography. My workshops are conducive to all experience levels from novice through professional.
Most of my travel photography workshops include all ground transportation, lodging, photographic instruction before/during/after the workshop, and lots of fun and adventure. More important than just getting you to some of the best and most remote areas at the best times of the day, my workshops are designed to create the best possible experience – with maximum value and minimal hassles – while providing you with the best photographic experience and instruction available.
Eastern Sierra Photo Adventure
California has many superlatives, some of which include highest, lowest, deepest, biggest, tallest, largest, hottest, and oldest that have been scientifically measured and verified. Many of these awe-inspiring locations are located along the amazing Eastern Sierra Corridor.
From snow-capped mountains to geothermal hot springs to ancient bristlecone pines and ancient tufa towers, there is no shortage of amazing locations to photograph along this Corridor. Come explore some of my favorite locations on this 5-night / 4-1/2 day photography workshop.

Death Valley Backcountry Adventure
Most photography workshops barely scratch the surface of what this amazing park has to offer because many of the “best” locations are only accessible using 4×4 high clearance vehicles on rough backcountry roads.
We’ll trek to three of the most remote and spectacular areas of the park that seldom get seen: Racetrack Playa – where the famous “sailing stones” are found, the Eureka Sand Dunes – the tallest dunes in California and possibly North America, and the Ubehehe Crater – a half-mile wide volcanic crater.

The Seascapes of the Rugged Oregon Coast
There are few places more photogenic than the rugged Oregon Coast. Lined with majestic sea stacks, rugged cliffs, hidden beaches, and expansive sand dunes, there’s really no place like the Oregon Coast to experience the raw power of the Pacific Ocean! At the same time, the coastline can be immensely serene as you walk through old-growth forests, chase the tide in hidden coves, hike secluded beaches, or savor the view of a classic lighthouse.
Join me for 5 nights and 4-1/2 days as we explore the rugged seascapes and tranquil forests of the majestic Oregon Coast!

Meander through endless hoodoos, desert spires, arches, and unimaginable rock formations in an alien world that was once a coastal swamp of an inland sea where dinosaurs roamed.
Join us on this 5-day backcountry adventure with 5 other students at a destination that National Geographic Travel listed as one of their “must visit” adventure destinations in 2019.
