WILDFLOWERS of COLORADO
Ouray, Colorado | July 8 - 12
Two incredible national parks & one stunning state park . . .
THE WILDFLOWERS OF COLORADO ARE SIMPLY STUNNING
We'll spend hours in the field with endless flowers and scenery you'll not want to leave. With Colorado's high country being one of the premier locations for wildflowers and breathtaking scenery, this is a can't miss opportunity for you. From fields of Columbine to individual
blossoms of many other colorful flowers,
this workshop will satisfy your desire
to create stunning pieces of art.
We're going up to Yankee Boy Basin where, at above tree line the skies are sapphire blue and the wildflowers a prolific. The waterfalls are alluring and beautiful. Butterflies and dragonflies everywhere.
Other locations where we will find wildflowers are along Red Mountain Pass, Black Bear Pass,
Wilson Mesa and many other luscious
locations in the SW of Colorado.
Bring your wide lens, your macro lens, tripod and some reflectors as we put them to good use creating fine art images you'll want to hang on your wall!
WHAT TO EXPECT
We will be hanging out in SW Colorado where the wildflowers and scenery are pretty much endless . . . I promise! Our home base will be in Ouray. Some of the locations we will be visiting are Yankee Boy Basin, The Million Dollar Highway, Red Mountain Pass, and many other side roads in that area. We will also check out Telluride and the Wilson Mesa as the wildflowers and views are as amazing. Such breathtaking scenery and experiences await.
I will share with you many techniques for close-up and macro photography. Be excited!
WHAT A GREAT TRIP IT WAS!
SEE YOU IN JULY 2023
SO MUCH TO SEE
All skill levels are encouraged to come and play in this atmosphere beyond words. After the workshop you will understand why words can't explain this unusual and unique collection of photographically
rich landscape. Seriously!
Here are some of the things I hope to encourage
your photographic growth in:
~ Image pre-visualization
~ Depth of field
~ Lens selection
~ Image prep in Lightroom
~ Image enhancement in Photoshop
~ and so much more

I have already made reservations. Once you reserve your Road Trip with a deposit, I will place your name on a room reservation. Rooms are $325 x4 nights which includes tax payable when you check in.
Let's find you a roommate!
Camera, tripod, filters, lenses, shutter release, Hoodman loupe and whatever other gear makes you happy. Also bring your laptop with Photoshop and Lightroom already installed and working. Sunscreen, sunglasses, bug spray and a hat
are advised. Having layers of clothing is great
as you can take off and put them back
on as the temperature changes. Having rain
gear available is not a bad idea either.
Rain gear for your equipment, too!
WHAT TO BRING
IN THE CLASSROOM
This is a hands-on opportunity so bring your computer! I have discovered that offering critique sessions during a Road Trip greatly increases your growth. Being able to shoot, critique, adjust and understand during a workshop is a very
efficient and rewarding way to learn.
I will offer a Zoom session a couple of weeks following the Road Trip. This is an ideal situation because we are all comfortable at home with our familiar computer setups. We will take a look at your imagery and I can offer critiques and other helpful and positive feedback. Then I will offer my
step-by-step process of howI interpret
and enhance my imagery.
For your investment you will have the opportunity to photograph some of the most incredible landscapes in the national and state parks system. There are a
lot of unique views and landscapes to
photograph in the parks we
will be visiting in Utah.
