Immerse yourself in the unparalleled beauty of California’s redwood coast, refine your photography skills, and create lasting memories with like-minded individuals on this extraordinary photo safari led by two photography experts, Jason P. Odell and Rick Walker.
Our journey begins in the coastal town of Crescent City, California, and will take us through majestic redwood groves. There, we’ll work on capturing a variety of forest subjects, including the redwoods, ferns, and other forest flora and fauna.
The safari also includes many shooting locations on the California coast, with excursions into southern Oregon. You’ll photograph rugged coastlines, waves, rocky outcrops and sea stacks. You’ll also get expert advice and field instruction along the way. With a student to instructor ratio of 4:1, this experience offers maximum learning.
This photo safari is limited to a maximum of eight photographers, so you’ll want to reserve your seat soon.
It’s wintertime, and that means for many of us, snow is in the weather forecast. This week, we’ll discuss settings and creative approaches to photographing snowy (or sandy) scenes.
