Join me this spring for a great weekend to experience iconic waterfalls and beautiful wildflowers throughout Oregon and Washington near the Columbia River Gorge. We'll plan to keep the schedule flexible and work around the weather for the best conditions. Participants should expect the workshop to begin with a required classroom session near Portland at 5pm on Friday the 19th, and to end with a sunset shoot (8pm) on Sunday the 21st.

Participants will receive personalized instruction as part of a small group setting that emphasizes the following techniques: shooting to process (focus stacking and exposure blending), composition with a focus on compelling foregrounds, identifying the optimal shutter speed (and the exposure triangle in general), and use of filters and other recommended equipment for shooting waterfalls. Participants will also receive a comprehensive start-to-finish processing tutorial/video covering Lightroom and Photoshop techniques.

This workshop will require moderate amounts of hiking. Many of the locations we’ll visit will be relatively accessible with limited off-trail hiking (some paved paths, some dirt trails, some waterfalls just off trails, etc.). Depending on the group profile, we may have opportunities to visit lesser-known (and less accessible) locations 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
  • Most food: Sandwiches, pastries, fruit, and other light snacks
  • Water
  • Limited transportation from the designated hotel (please let me know if you are traveling in and would like to coordinate transportation).

What’s Not Included:

To reserve your spot, please checkout and make payment using this page. Once payment is made, you'll receive an email with a list of recommended gear and some basic questions to ensure you have a great experience. Payments are non-refundable within 60 days of the beginning date for the workshop unless a replacement is provided by the participant.
