#WorkshopWednesday – Join Me in August at Mt. Rainier!

This summer I’ll be holding a workshop in my home state of Washington centered one of the more iconic features of the Pacific Northwest, second perhaps only to the Space Needle. Here are 10 reasons to join me from August 15th through the 18th for the Mount Rainier Workshop!

10.) Visit one of the locations that is the subject for some of my most recognized landscape photos! We will capture Rainier reflected in the local waters at sunrise.

9.) It’s a volcano! Cool!

8.) Make some new friends – one of the best things I take away from these workshops is being able to unite people with similar interests, many of which go on to become great friends and travel companions.

7.) The Instructors! I’ll have my assistant Gavriel Jecan with us to ensure there are enough hands on deck to support all participants.

6.) Familiarity – I’ve been coming here my entire life. You simply won’t find anyone who knows this locations in terms of photographic opportunities, ensuring our group will get the best shots imaginable!

5.) Creativity! I will give my Creativity In Nature Photography lecture as part of this workshop. It’s always my goal to make sure that along with the iconic shots, we also see things differently than everyone else and capture unique and creative images.

4.) Visit historic Mount Rainier National Park and it’s 120-year-old history.

3.) Summer in Seattle! We may have a reputation for rain, but summers in Seattle are gorgeous and August is a good time to visit.

2.) The breathtaking nature around the mountain itself – flowery meadows and green forests below the glaciers of the cascade range provide an unlimited source of inspiration and color.

1.) Mount Rainier itself is, simply put, an icon of the Pacific Northwest. Visible looming in the distance from the city of Seattle, it’s one of the most prominent mountain features in the United States. Even locals like myself can’t help but marvel to see it in the distance, let alone up close!

Space is limited, so sign up today to reserve your spot!
