~THIS IS NOT A VACATION. This is 9-days of excitement of exploring and photographing some of the most magical landscapes in the world. You will be up early and out late, capturing the light at the most dramatic times of the day. That excitement translates to long days, but when you look at the images on the back of your camera, it will be 100% worth it. You can sleep-in after the workshop is over .
~ We are a team out in the field. We stay together and work together and I make sure each of you get the perfect image at the perfect time. I'm there to provide advice for set up locations and proper settings to get the exact image that you're looking to capture.
