About Workshops

 

All workshops are fitting for any skill level or camera equipment and most fitness levels.  While we do photograph all day long, there is little actual hiking involved. The 3-day destination workshops also include a break in the afternoon of the middle day. Beyond composition, most instruction is geared towards the use of a DSLR camera.
