This photography class turns our eyes toward the smaller, more intimate details of the world around us. This doesn't necessarily mean tiny, close-up macro photos. Instead we will explore how to use our vision to recognize and isolate important aspects of scenes and locations through both field and classroom presentations.

Instructed by Gary Crabbe


-Accommodations included at the Historic Lifeboat Station at Chimney Rock, more info below.

Historic Lifeboat Station at Chimney Rock


Lifeboat Station


The Point Reyes Lifeboat Station is a National Historic Landmark overlooking beautiful Drakes Bay. It is the last remaining example of a rail-launched lifeboat station that was common on the Pacific coast. Located at Chimney Rock, the Lifeboat Station was built in 1927 by the U.S. Coast Guard and contains the crew’s quarters, a large boat bay, and a marine railway system for launching a 36-foot life boat.

The ground floor houses the boat bay museum where a renovated motor boat is located.

The area around the Lifeboat Station is used by the Marine Mammal Center as a release site for rehabilitated wildlife. While staying here some classes are unexpectedly treated to the release of an otter or harbor seal.
