Amongst the Giants

May 19 - 23, 2018

Leader: William Manning

California's Redwood Forests are a site to behold. Northern California's Redwood National and State Parks are home to the tallest trees on earth. Standing beneath these giants is special and to photograph them is a memorable experience not to be forgotten. Our photo journey puts us on location during the rhododendron blooms and likely mother nature will throw in a little fog adding to an ever present beauty.

William will guide participants throughout the journey visiting many of the groves that stand along the Redwood National and State Parks region. Our trip coincides with the traditionally peak of the rhododendron blooms which we hope will be in full display. This region is also known for its beautiful coastal beaches and colorful wildflower blooms in the open meadows.

What you can expect. You can expect to be the focus of attention. Your photography is paramount and it's my job to provide the answers that allow you to grow as a photographer. Participants receive an abundance of one on one instruction in the field along with group discussions. You'll discover the artist within and build on your skills. Mastering your tools in the field and knowing what they can do for you is the foundation to a successful photo journey. We know photographers want to be behind their camera therefore we make every effort to maximize our time in the field and teach with a hands on approach. Learning to see and knowing what to do once you identify your subject is the stepping stone to building a work of art. 

Itinerary. Our daily schedule will vary depending on location and weather. Light is the most important ingredient to a rewarding photo shoot. Photo tours allow us the flexibility to respond to the light and weather conditions as needed. We won't miss any of the highlights, its just we'll photograph them on the day best suited for optimum conditions needed. You can expect early mornings and photograph throughout the good morning light. Whenever the weather conditions are favorable for photography you can bet we'll take advantage of it. When afternoon light works against us we'll take in a critique session and/or talk processing and expanding your art beyond the camera. For those in need of an afternoon break, this time is set aside for you as well. Late afternoon and into early evening we'll be back in the field for more hands on photography instruction and photo opportunities.
