Event Details

Mt. Rainier Landscape Photography Workshop

August 24 - 28, 2016

Mt. Rainier, WA

Description of Workshop: 

Join Rick for a workshop dedicated to landscape photography in a national park known for its picturesque vistas and dramatic viewpoints. This workshop will focus on the technical skills and artistic vision needed to capture successful landscape images. We'll follow the best light at sunrise and sunset and work on wide angle, panoramas and reflection shots. In addition, Rick will cover how to use HDR and neutral density filters to improve your landscape images. 

Basically, this is a "you snooze you lose" photo workshop. We'll be in the park before sunrise and be out after sunset - to capture the best light of day. Sure! You can take a nap before or after our processing sessions, which are an important learning experience on the workshop.

We'll shoot in many of the park's most iconic locations. We've timed the workshop for August, a great time of year to capture Mt. Rainier when it is framed by forrest, reflected in water and surrounded by wild flower meadows. 

Here is a link to some of Rick's favotite Mt. Rainier images:

In addition to shooting sessions, there will be guided group processing sessions. Rick will share his use of Lightroom and Photoshop and how to expand your creativity by using plug ins. Participants will share their images at a group slide show at the end of the workshop.

This is an excellent workshop for photographers looking to improve their landscape photographs and who also want to add stunning new images to their personal collection.

For this workshop, participants are responsbile for their own transportation, accommodations, meals and park fees. Mt. Rainier is about a 2 hour drive from Seattle, WA. We will provide photographic instruction and guidance, select shooting locations and arrange meeting times.
