Grab your winter gear and join me this January to experience the winter beauty of the Pacific Northwest. We will spend our time shooting waterfalls in OR/WA as well as various areas near Mt. Hood. Weather may have a big impact on this workshop and the itinerary so an exact schedule likely will not be created until the week of the workshop. Participants should expect to be ready to shoot prior to sunrise (7:45am) on Saturday and to end after Sunset (4:30pm) on Sunday. An optional sunset session may also be provided on Friday the 5th at a location near Mt. Hood, weather permitting (this is included in the workshop price if we do it).

Participants will receive personalized instruction as part of a casual small group setting that emphasizes the following techniques: shooting to process (focus stacking and exposure blending), composition with a focus on compelling foregrounds, optimal settings with relation to the exposure triangle and the subjects we shoot, and use of filters and other recommended equipment. Participants will also receive a comprehensive start-to-finish processing tutorial/video covering Lightroom and Photoshop techniques on one of the images shot that weekend.

This workshop may require a fair amount of hiking (2-4 miles max at some locations), and if there is a lot of snow that makes it a little more difficult as well. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions regarding your physical ability and whether this workshop is a good fit for you.

What’s Included:

  • Shooting and post-processing instruction
  • Light food: Sandwiches, pastries, fruit, and other light snacks
  • Water and coffee
  • Hand warmers
  • Limited transportation from designated hotels/locations (please let me know if you are traveling in and would like to coordinate transportation).

What’s Not Included:

  • Flights
  • Transportation not listed above
  • Lodging: You’re welcome to stay wherever you’d like but coordinated transportation is limited to hotels in Troutdale: Best Western Plus Cascade Inn & Suites is the recommended hotel but there's also McMenamins Edgefield and the Holiday Inn Express – Troutdale.
  • Meals irrespective of the food described above

What to Bring & Recommended Gear:

  • Winter Clothes: sweater/fleece, winter jacket, dry/winter pants, hat, gloves, etc.
  • Snowshoes and crampons/micro-spikes.
  • Waders: not required but recommended. The best photos usually require getting wet, so you’ll get the best experience if you’re prepared to do so. I use these (https://goo.gl/FGvxE9) with a pair Keen water shoes that I pull over the wader socks.
  • Camera Equipment:
    • Camera (full-frame recommended but not required)
    • Wide-angle lens and zoom lens would be ideal (12mm – 100mm tends to be the optimal range for the locations we’ll visit).
    • Tripod
    • Circular polarizer filter (recommended but not required)
    • Rocket blower and/or a lot of lens cloths for wiping water off. A hat or something equivalent is also great to have to block mist/spray off your lens.
