Winding mountain roads, aspen filled valleys, towering mountains, crystal clear lakes and stunning artists light overwhelm the senses in the Ridgway/Telluride area in the fall.  This beautiful mountain setting is the one of the best places in the country to shoot fall colors and we will take full advantage of it.  Last Dollar Road and Dallas Divide are just a few of the amazing locations we will be visiting during this three day  workshop.

Dan has been fine tuning his workshops and methods of teaching photography for years. He is a very passionate and creative teacher, who believes in spending a large amount of the workshop instructing & giving assignments. He will give several group lectures as well as one-on-one instruction and critique to each student, catering to each individuals personal photographic level. Landscape photography business idea's will also be touched upon. Dan's goal for each workshop is to help you see the final printed image in your "mind's eye" before you push the button. You will learn Dan's entire process for creating powerful & dramatic images starting with where to shoot & why; how to master composition; understand light; set up your camera; & what you need to carry in your camera bag. Dan will also teach an afternoon session on LR post processing techniques. He uses a unique approach that leads to natural, but vibrant images. Dan is committed to helping you get images you will be proud of!
