Landscape and wildlife photography instruction for every level.


My private photo workshop and tour is designed for travelers wanting to improve their nature and wildlife photography, while touring Colorado's most beautiful natural areas. I'll share my favorite techniques and locations to ensure a memorable learning experience, regardless of your photographic skills or the kind of camera you use.

If you like, we can be out and about from sunrise to sunset. We'll enjoy photographing the golden light, but also everything in between. Yes, you can learn techniques to successfully photograph all day long! Rocky Mountain National Park, the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area and the Mt Evans Wilderness Area all offer stunning landscapes and incomparable wildlife photography.

Night Photography of the Milky Way is also possible, due to our clear, dry atmosphere and ready access to high altitude roads.

I have written and photographed six books on photography, including nature, travel and commercial photography. Four of these books are on Colorado.

Itinerary

Before your Professional Photography Workshop, I'm happy to answer questions about camera equipment and your goals. Pick-up and drop-off at your hotel lobby. I suggest meeting for sunrise because the light and wildlife viewing is better.
I prefer Rocky Mountain National Park for it's spectacular mountains vistas and wildlife photography. We'll visit Sprague and Bear Lakes, then a hike to Dream Lake is optional, 40 minutes each way.

Next stop is Moraine Park for wildflower photography along the Big Thompson River and possible elk and moose photography along Spruce Canyon.

Picnic lunch at a scenic overlook or a restaurant in Estes Park.

Drive up Trail Ridge Road for views from Rainbow Curve. Next stop is the Paiute Trail for great compositions of Longs Peak. Hiking is optional.

Continue to the Forest Canyon and Rock Cut Overlooks for varied compositions of the Continental Divide. Wildlife such as bighorn sheep, elk and mountain goats might be seen. Sunset will be at Beaver Meadows.
