Two incredible national parks & one stunning state park . . .


Rickett's Glen State Park in Pennsylvania has more than 20 waterfalls of various sizes, all waiting for us to come and photograph them. They range in heights from over 90 feet to just a few feet high. As the path is l

aid out, there are several opportunities to capture two or

three of them in a single photograph.

Set in east-central Pennsylvania, the state park is a short drive from Wilkes-Barre where we will be

lodging for this stunning chance

to capture waterfalls.

Waterfalls are always a photographer's favorite subject. This is your Road Trip! We will spend two days wandering the woods to enjoy and capture these waterfalls and beautiful scenery. What a glorious opportunity to practice your slow-motion waterfall capturing techniques.

And if you don't know what I am referring to,

this will be a huge conversation

while we are there!

Ricketts Glen State Park is one of the most scenic areas in Pennsylvania. This large park is comprised of 13,193 acres in Luzerne, Sullivan, and Columbia counties.

Ricketts Glen harbors the Glens Natural Area -- a National Natural Landmark. Hike the Falls Trail System to explore the glens, which boasts a series of wild, free-flowing waterfalls, each cascading through rock-strewn clefts in this ancient hillside.

The 94-foot Ganoga Falls is the highest of 22 named waterfalls. Old growth timber and diverse wildlife add to the beauty.

Natural wetlands, old growth forests, and majestic geological formations (which helped produce 22 beautiful waterfalls), make Ricketts Glen an excellent choice for outdoor studies.

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

~ Composition

~ Exposure

~ Depth of field

~ Lens selection

~ Image prep in Lightroom

~ Image enhancement in Photoshop

~ and so much more . . .

I have reservations already. Once you reserve your Road Trip with a deposit, I will place your name on a room reservation. Rooms are $205 x3 nights 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!



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 how
I interpret
and enhance my imagery.


For your investment you will have the opportunity to photograph over 20 waterfalls and unique landscape. On site education, as much as you desire. We will also hold a classroom situation on the Road Trip as well as a Zoom session once we return home.

We must rely on your confirmed attendance to make important arrangements, reservations and payments in advance for your workshop to be a positive and pleasant experience. If you need to cancel, please let us know as soon as possible.


Your initial deposit is fully refundable within 72 hours of making the deposit. After 72 hours, your deposit becomes non-refundable. The balance of the workshop is due 30 days before the first day of the workshop. If your initial deposit is made inside of 30 days from the first day of the workshop, full payment may be required in lieu of the usual deposit. A payment schedule may be arranged if this makes attending a Soul Road Trip more possible for you. Contact me directly for an installment payment opportunity. EMAIL


Sometimes you need to cancel a trip. Plans and desires change and we understand that. We also hope that you understand certain arrangements, reservations and plans must be made weeks if not months out from a workshop. Deposits are used to make these arrangements to make your experience a pleasant one. Of course, we wish you to come again and again and to tell your friends about your wonderful experience.


However, if you must cancel, please be aware of these policies. After the initial 72 hours after making a deposit, that deposit is non-refundable. If you cancel after 72 hours and 30 days before the first day of the workshop, any additional monies are refundable less a 15% administration fee. If you must cancel within 30 days before the first day of the workshop, all funds are non-refundable so we recommend travel insurance. Check out or for trip insurance opportunities.


Workshop registrations are usually NOT transferable. We will take each situation on a case-by-case basis. If Soul Road Trips needs to cancel a workshop, we will let you know as soon as possible and at least 14 days prior to the first day of the scheduled workshop, and immediately refund your full tuition. However, we will not be responsible for non-refundable airline tickets or lodging reservations. Please do not purchase airline tickets or make non-refundable deposits on lodging that cannot be canceled before the trip.
