    Join Joe and I for a weekend of fun, exploration, and learning amongst some of the most incredible scenery in the Northwest!


    The Columbia River Gorge holds some of most beautiful and lush scenery in North America. Featuring the greenest temperate rainforests in the Pacific Northwest, as well as 115 officially-named waterfalls, the Gorge is an amazing destination to create extraordinary springtime images of rainforests, waterfalls, and streams. Over the course of this workshop, we have the possibility to photograph over a dozen picturesque waterfalls, jurassic-esque forest scenes – complete with mossy trees and four foot tall ferns, streams with moss-covered boulders, and beautiful views across the river and into the mountains. Hood River, Oregon will be our base camp for this adventure.


    Joseph and Alex will teach a variety of techniques—both in the field and in the classroom—that will allow you to advance both your technical skills and artistic vision. We focus on a number of professional field techniques to help you create dramatic and powerful nature images, including:

    • Working with dramatic light, including sunrise and sunset
    • Using less-than-dramatic light to your advantage
    • The fundamentals of powerful compositions
    • Abstract techniques for creating artistic photographs


    We’ll also teach you a number of professional “digital darkroom” secrets as well. Our hands-on intensive seminars – held during the middle of the day when the light is not conducive to successful photography – will teach you the fundamentals of image processing, and allow you to master important techniques including:

    • Working with adjustment layers
    • Layer masking and image blending techniques
    • Making difficult selections
    • Color management
    • Special effects techniques used for artistic expression
    • Exporting, sharpening, and saving images for optimum web presentation
