Early Spring in Wine Country

Spring will be in full force at this point. The vineyards will be in various shades of green and many flowers will be blooming as well. In the late afternoon, we may find vistas of vine covered hills bathed in "rim light". It is a very good time to photograph vineyards, and the itinerary will maximize our ability to capture great scenes.

Northwest Sonoma County

If we get a normal wet winter, the Rhododendrons should be at their peak about now. Their flowers make great subjects in the redwood forests. Salt Point is also interesting with its petrified sand beaches and "secret" waterfall that runs into the ocean. We may not even spend much time in these parks since there is a lot of things to photograph along the way and back.

Winter in Wine Country

After fall, winter is actually one of my favorite times to photograph wine country. There are hints of color everywhere at this point, and the structure of the vineyard supports and oak trees make for great photographs. We will follow a pre-scouted itinerary for the best possible photographs at this time of year.

West Marin and Point Reyes - September

Point Reyes covers quite a bit of territory. We may photograph both inside and outside of the park. The subject matter we may photograph includes forests, beaches, old buildings and plant and animal life. We will visit the best places to photograph during this time of year, based on the time of day and weather conditions.

Death Valley & the Eastern Sierras

to Jan 8

Death Valley & the Eastern Sierras

Death Valley is the largest national park in the continental United States. You could easily drive for hundreds of miles within the park boundaries, while looking for good spots to photograph. In this workshop, I can take you directly to these places. After a few days in the relative warmth of the desert, we will go north on one of my favorite roads in California, Highway 395. We'll follow in the footsteps of Ansel Adams at many of the places we visit.

Capturing the Spirit of Point Reyes

This class will be taught under the auspices of the Point Reyes National Seashore Association and their Field Institute. We will stay the entire weekend in the park photographing a wide variety of environments. What we photograph will depend on the weather. I will also talk a lot about capturing the "spirit" of things and not just their surface. You will register for this course through the PRNSA website.
