A while back, my buddy Bill Fortney invited me to teach a full week landscape photography workshop with him (and our friend Jim Begley) this coming June. He asked what locations I was interested in, and I picked the Palouse region of Washington state and Olympic National Park on the coast of Washington. See, I’ve been to the Palouse before, but I A) didn’t have the right gear that I wished I had and B) liked it so much that I’ve always wanted to go back. As for Olympic, well, I’ve only been there once for a few hours driving through and it’s been on my bucket list for a while now. Here’s the link to Bill’s website and workshop page.
First we fly in to Spokane, WA and start off shooting in the Palouse (about 60-90 minute drive from the airport) on Sunday June 9th. We shoot there for a few days and then make our way over to the coast to shoot Olympic NP for the remainder of the week. Along the way we’ll be doing photo critiques, classes when we’re not shooting and we’ll have lab time for you to work on your photos while Bill, Jim, and I stand by to help you out.
As I mentioned, I was there a few years ago and below is one of my favorites from the trip. You’ll find old barns like this throughout the Palouse area.
It’s also a great place to capture those large rolling green fields with (hopefully) beautiful puffy clouds in the sky.
Okay, here’s the deal. The workshop is close to filling up. Basically, as soon as Bill announces these things on his blog they fill up immediately. However, some people sign up early thinking they can go, but then as the time gets closer they realize they can’t make it. So… we have about 5 spots open right now. I know it’s not a lot, but it’s entirely possible that more may open up, so the best thing to do is head over to Bill’s website and call/email him that you’re interested. We’ll fill the spots on a first come, first served basis and then start putting names on a waiting list in case someone cancels (which almost always happens, so you may still get in).
If you’ve never been on a workshop like this before I urge you to give it a try. There’s a reason why Bill’s workshops come close to filling up right away and that’s because he knows how to do it right. Trust me, you’ll have a blast, get some great photos and make some awesome friends along the way.
Hope to see you there. Have a good one!
