GHOST RANCH and Northern New Mexico—a Photoshop Learning Retreat (and Sante Fe’s Famous Indian Market) — August 11-18, 2018   

One magazine recently declared Northern New Mexico the number one destination in the world for photographers.  I can’t argue that. A rich combination of some of the world’s greatest and most unusual landscapes, great historical sites, and colorful characters and architecture make it so.  In addition to Ghost Ranch, we will also photograph the Great Sand Dunes, just over the border in Colorado, and several Rio Grande Gorge locations.  While I have lead many workshops in New Mexico, this will be the first time with a Photoshop Learning Classroom element.  And in addition, this trip coincides with the World Famous Sante Fe Indian Market (August 18-19), which includes 1200 artists from about 100 native tribes who show their work in over 600 booths.  This is a very special trip with limited spaces!   

Workshop fee—$695. 
Workshop limited to 10 maximum, 7 minimum.

BANFF NATIONAL PARK, CANADIAN ROCKIES — June 17-23, 2018        

JASPER NATIONAL PARK — June 23-29, 2018

Glacier-fed emerald lakes, majestic peaks, clear mountain streams—the only word really needed to describe the Canadian Rockies is “Spectacular”!  Banff and Jasper National Park are famous for their surreally colored lakes, majestic mountains, and endless outdoor adventures. Banff is Canada’s first established national park and the world’s third; it has a rich heritage as one of the world’s most awe-inspiring mountain destinations.  Jasper National Park in the Canadian Rockies comprises a vast wilderness area of Alberta province defined by glaciers, lakes, and peaks like Mt. Edith Cavell that rises go 11,033 feet.  This year is a great opportunity to visit both back-to-back.  I am proud to be leading this rare, possibly once in a lifetime, offering sponsored by the Georgia Nature Photographer’s Association (GNPA.)  These trips will book through GNPA at their website www.gnps.org. I hope you will join us for one or both of these exciting trips!   

Workshop fee—$895.
Workshop limited to 14 maximum, 10 minimum.

ST. AUGUSTINE—April 8-11, 2018

Birds, Gators, Beaches and History!  St. Augustine has it all.  St. Augustine is the longest continually inhabited European-founded city in the United States.  Stroll the narrow lanes and visit landmarks such as Castillo de San Marcos, Bridge of Lions, and much more.

We will spend two mornings at the Alligator Farm Zoological Park.  This is a terrific opportunity to hone your wildlife photography skills.  The Park hosts a wide variety of wildlife in addition to alligators – native herons, egrets, ibis, spoonbills, and wood storks seek the security of the Alligator Swamp to roost and raise their young.  With hundreds of alligators swimming beneath the oak branches, the birds know their young are safe from tree-climbing predators. The wooden walkways allow for incredibly intimate views of Florida’s magnificent wading birds on their nests.  Photographers achieve award-winning shots here every year.  We will also make a point of getting out to the beach for those east coast sunrises.  I will fill this trip with many tips and tricks for bird, wildlife, and beach photography.

This year’s St. Augustine trip coincides with the annual Georgia Nature Photographers Association Expo (April 12-15) at Jekyll Island.  Details at www.gnpa.org.  I am honored to again be a presenter at this awesome event!  This is an excellent chance to photograph at two of the east coast’s best sites in one week.

Workshop fee—$225. 
Workshop limited to 12 maximum, 8 minimum.

BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY IN AUTUMN—October 14-17, 2018

We will explore from the Parkway’s southern terminus at the entrance to Great Smoky Mountain Park north to the Shining Rock Wilderness.  Learn many sunrise-sunset, wildlife, and landscape techniques on this trip.
