Over my years of traveling and photography, I have found the state of Oregon to be one of the absolute best states for diversity of subject matter and stunning landscapes. This nearly weeklong photo tour encompasses that diversity as will stretch our skills by capturing grape harvest and wine making at one of the finest vineyards in Oregon (it pays to be good friends with one of the proprietors!). We’ll also visit towering forests with waterfalls and a variety of covered bridges that dot the Willamette Valley.

The second half of the trip takes in the famed Oregon Coastline. Our lodging will be oceanfront meaning just a short walk to Cape Kiwanda and Cannon Beach. There will also be hidden forest trails and quaint smaller beaches such as Ecola State Park and Hug Point. Since, we will be visiting mid-week in off season, the crowds should be thinned out making for a truly relaxing and fun week of photography, dining and exploring. 

EQUIPMENT SUGGESTIONS: A sturdy tripod is a necessity for good landscapes. Participants should have a working knowledge of their equipment (know which button does what!) before the workshop. I suggest a SLR camera with a wide-angle lens (17-35mm range) and  a telephoto lens up in the  300-500mm range
