Oregon Coast

September 8 - 14, 2018

Leader: William Manning

The Oregon coast stretches 363 miles and runs from the Columbia River to the California border. It is considered by many to be the most scenic seashore in the lower 48 states. This coastline is an inspiring landscape abundant with wild and beautiful subjects from ancient old growth forests, sand dunes, tide pools, lighthouses, roaring wave action and graphic landscapes. There is no shortage of places to explore. Natural and made-made communities along this Pacific coast need the sea for survival and both offer a colorful and ever changing environment for us to enjoy on this beautiful coastal photo tour.

It is difficult to select a handful of locations from the many that are worthy of photographing. This is why our tour gives participants the opportunity to explore many more locations than what a limited two or three day workshop would provide. We'll spend 2 overnights in Lincoln City, 2 overnights in Florence and 2 in Bandon. The will give us the advantage of exploring and photographing many more locations which are all uniquely different. If you’re traveling a long distance to Oregon, you want to take in as much as possible and this is why our photo tour is designed in this manner.

This tour is designed to accommodate all skill levels. There is some hiking involved, most are easy but there will be a day spent on the sand dunes which may be challenging but anyone in moderately good health should have no problem if you take your time. There may be a couple locations some may deem to be steep but if this is the case there are usually plenty of views along the road or trail to photograph. Join us on this fun and rewarding photo journey.

Our photo tour begins on Saturday afternoon after everyone is picked up from the Portland airport. Each day, carefully selected locations will be determined depending on the weather forecast. We rise early for sunrise or simply to catch the warm morning spreading its rays across the landscape. Depending on the afternoon light we may be on location photographing or in a classroom environment critiquing our work, learning new editing and processing techniques or simply talking about equipment and other tools of the trade.

Itinerary. Our daily schedule will vary depending on location and weather. Light is the most important ingredient to a rewarding photo shoot. You can expect early mornings and photograph throughout the good morning light. If the weather conditions are favorable for photography throughout the day you can bet we'll take advantage of it. I have designed the daily schedule to allow some down time during the bad light during mid day. Late afternoon and into early evening we'll be back out in the field for more hands on photography instruction and shooting opportunities.

Tour schedule. The Oregon coast is a long stretch of coastline, at 363 miles it would be impossible to photograph the diversity found along this awesome stretch of the Pacific coast by positioning ourselves at one hotel location. For this reason, our photo tour is designed around three different overnight accommodations. Our first two nights will be spent in Lincoln City, Oregon giving us the opportunity to photograph the northern locations along the coast. Our third and fourth overnight will take place in Florence and fifth and sixth nights in Bandon. William Manning Photography/Photovian  tours reserve the right to change hotel locations for any unforeseen reasons beyond our control.
