Event Details


Samy’s Photo school is proud to partner with National Park Photographic Expeditions to provide our students with exceptional Landscape Master Classes in our nation’s most scenic national parks. Bob Killen and his staff of national park Artist in Residence instructors will help you access intuitive, reflective ways of working that will lead you to create great landscape images. These classes provide hands-on, mentored learning in the field and ample classroom time with your instructor to teach you a capture to post production workflow (end to creative end workflow) using Lightroom and Photoshop.

Our National Park programs include your lodging, all local travel, instructor tuition, post-production classroom, course materials, post-class online support and meals in the field.  All you need to do is arrive with your camera and laptop, and away you go to some of the most incredible photographic sites and professional hands-on training anywhere.


Olympic National Park

The range of Olympic scenes is breathtaking from the sweeping panoramas of Hurricane Ridge, punctuated with stately alpine firs to the lush a lush, green canopy of both coniferous and deciduous trees in the Hoh Rain Forest. In this workshop, will learn dedicated approaches for Mosses and Ferns, emphasize details and forms, items which add dimensions of visual enchantment. We will shift gears later in the workshop and employ a different workflow for capture along the rocky beaches, where we explore giant drift logs, pounding waves and views of offshore rock masses known as ‘sea stacks.’

Such diversity provides an ample training ground to Master Landscape Photography across a dramatic cross-section of habitat and weather atmospherics in one of the nation’s premiere National Parks.
