Due to a cancellation, I have an immediate opening to join my Oregon Coast Photo Safari & Landscape workshop. We’ll meet in Eugene, Oregon on Saturday, October 12th, then travel to Bandon Beach on the Oregon coast. Bandon Beach is home to some of the most spectacular sea-stacks on the Pacific coast, and we’ll take advantage of the full moon for wonderful low-tide shooting.

I’ve arranged for group lodging directly across the street from our beachfront shooting location for outstanding logistics while we’re there.

As with all of my landscape photography safaris, I’ll be there to provide hands-on instruction on composition, exposure, and digital post-processing using Lightroom and Photoshop.
