Summer in the San Juans: An Astro, Nature Photography & Timelapse Workshop

Dates: June (18th-21st), July ( 9th-12th and 23rd-26th), 2015

Price: $699*

Max occupancy: 10

Set in the Uncompahgre National Forest in the heart of the San Juan Mountains of southern Colorado. This workshop will focus on two main subjects: Astro and nature photography. At a base camp elevation of ~10,000 ft and with no light pollution in any direction for almost 100 miles, this is the perfect setting for amazing astro, nature photography and timelapses.


This area of the San Juans is a place very dear to me, as it is where my family cabin is and where I spent much of my life growing up and thoroughly exploring. It is also home to the mountains where I spent conducting the majority of my research during the last 11 years in college studying geology—so I am quite familiar with this area in many aspects. There is no place with more natural beauty, serenity, dark skies, wildlife, mind-blowing geology, and general awesomeness all in one, and I know because I have been pretty much everywhere. It will be my job to ensure that you come away from this workshop with not only a plethora of new photography skills and stunning images, but also with amazing memories and an experience of a lifetime which you will not soon forget.


**Note: This will be a camping workshop, there are no towns or any lodging anywhere near where we will be, so make sure you have all of the appropriate and necessary camping gear, unless you want to bring a camper/trailer of some sort (please notify me if this is the case, so I can tell you whether you will be able to get it to where we are camping or not).
