Photograph Colorado Wildflowers July 9-12

Instructional Photo Safari in Crested Butte, CO

Lupine, Kebler Pass, CO

My third annual Rocky Mountain Wildflower photo safari will be held July 9-12 in Crested Butte, Colorado. I have two seats available for photographers who wish to immerse themselves in the beauty of the Rockies while photographing the colorful wildflower blooms there. I’ve designed this safari to be low-impact. No hiking or off-roading is required. We will focus our efforts on creative close-up/macro techniques, as well as other creative ways of capturing Colorado’s summer colors.

Booking deadline is June 24th, so reserve your seat soon!

Cadillac hood ornament at Old Car City USA

I’m finishing up my spring workshop to Old Car City USA, and we had an amazing time. You really need to spend at least two days here in order to satisfy your photographic appetite.

The theme I’m stressing with my clients is that a photograph is something that you make, not just take.
