Schedule of Events for 2016

The 2016 workshop season breaks new ground for the upcoming year. We're adding training for wedding photography and journeying to the Eastern Sierra for Fall color. And if you've never explored the diverse Pt. Reyes seashore and vistas, you're in for a treat this summer.

  • San Francisco Street Photography - April 15-17, 2016 - We'll work entirely on location in San Francisco. We'll book a hotel in picturesque Union Square that will serve as our headquarters during the event. No rental car will be necessary. We'll explore the City's hidden treasures and capture them through our lenses. And we're adding new shooting locations again this year, including twilight assignments. This is San Francisco like you've never seen it before. And as a bonus, Olympus Trailblazer Mike Boening will be joining the teaching staff and leading sessions on street shooting and night photography. Two instructors, three days, and all for just $695. (That's right, it's 3 full days this year instead of two...)
  • Pt. Reyes National Seashore - August 12-21, 2016 - "From its thunderous ocean breakers crashing against rocky headlands and expansive sand beaches to its open grasslands, brushy hillsides, and forested ridges, Point Reyes offers visitors over 1500 species of plants and animals to discover." This is our first workshop in this magical location, and you'll be sure to come home with wonderful images and warm memories. $595 for the 2-day event.
  • Autumn in The Eastern Sierra: October, 2016 - Step back in time and explore an abandoned silver mining town in the remote reaches of the Eastern Sierra. This is a workshop for those who want adventure. This is the land of Mono Lake, Mammoth, and wide open spaces. And in the Fall, the Quaking Aspens radiate shades of yellow, orange, and red. It's an irresistible combination of location and season. We will spend our time on the high plains photographing, discussing, learning, and immersing in our craft - $695 for the 3-day event.
