Event description



Imagine photographing the stunning Pacific beaches, misty rainforests, captivating lakes and majestic whales of the Olympic Peninsula alongside professional photographers with top-of-the-line lenses. This workshop will immerse you and a small group of participants into the art of landscape and wildlife photography at Olympic National Park. We’ll take advantage of the park’s stunning sunrises, sunsets and close proximity to the ocean to capture the majesty of Olympic National Park.

We’ll be based out of the maritime town of Port Angeles at the Red Lion Hotel located right on the waters of Puget Sound. From there, we’ll be poised to explore temperate rainforests, moody beaches and alpine peaks of Olympic National Park along with the waters of Puget Sound.

The workshop begins the evening of July 16th with a dinner reception in Port Angeles that will allow you to get to know the photographers and instructors on our workshop. From there, we will begin exploring the Olympic Peninsula through the lens of your camera. Be prepared to walk up to a quarter mile on uneven surfaces to get to each shoot.

Tamron USA will have their full complement of lenses available to loan out to you for the entire program, including their award-winning 15-30 (FX and DX in Canon, Nikon, and Sony mounts). National Park Trips Media (an Authorized Permittee of the National Park Service) and Tamron USA have teamed up to offer the National Park Photography Workshop series in a number of national parks across the Western US in 2019.
