Wildflowers as far as you can see . . .
We'll spend hours in the field with endless flowers and scenery you'll not want to leave. I will also offer image critiques during the afternoons on Saturday and Sunday. These image critique opportunities coupled with hands-on experience will almost guarantee you beautiful results and help you to become an amazing fine art photographer..

We're going up to Yankee Boy Basin where at above treetop the skies are sapphire blue and the wildflowers a prolific. The waterfalls are alluring and beautiful. Butterflies and dragonflies everywhere. Bring your wide lens and your macro as we'll put them to good use!

Lodging -

Ridgway-Ouray Lodge and Suites

(For this trip I used Hotels.com for the best rate. If you call the hotel they will not have a rate for us set aside, sorry!)

In the Field -
Camera, tripod, filters, lenses, release cord and whatever other gear makes you happy. 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. And rain gear for your equipment, too! More detailed info about gear after you register.

In the Classroom -
This is a hands-on opportunity so bring your computer! I'll share with you how I edit and prepare my images in Lightroom and Photoshop. I also use the NIK Software suite. Have these all loaded and running on your computer before the class, please!

Your Investment -
For your investment you will have the opportunity to photograph some of the most incredible collections of wildflowers on some of Colorado's amazing landscape. You will be able to capture wide-angle shots with flowers and mountains right down to beautiful macro images of just a petal or two. Great opportunity!

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 allianz.com or squaremouth.com for trip insurance opportunities.
