The Palouse Summer Tour, A Four Person Private Tour – June 21st – 26th, 2019

COMPLETED

If you have never been or have been many times you should join me in one of my favorite places to photograph in America. The Palouse. This incredible region of rolling hills and farmland is located in Southeast Washington State. I have been shooting this area for years and usually make annual visits to the Palouse both in the early summer and for the harvest in August. There are many places to photograph in this area. I’d love to take you to some of my favorite, fabulous spots.

Over the last few years. we have held workshops in the Palouse with 12 or more people. This year I am offering something special. Come shoot with me and no more than four other photographers (5 of us total) in the Palouse in the early summer. We’ll be photographing from dawn to sunset at some of my favorite locations. As a small group, we will have plenty of time to talk about photography and making images. I’ll help you along the way find the best ways to shoot this landscape as well as coach you on seeing differently. We’ll also spend time doing image processing and prepping images for printing.

I’ll pick you up at the Spokane airport at noon on the 21st of June. We will head right into the region and start our photography adventure. We’ll be staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Pullman, WA. Don’t let the Holiday Inn name fool you, as this is not your everyday Holiday Inn.

We’ll work our way south and check you into the hotel by late afternoon. We’ll then head out to shoot for a few more hours as the sun falls lower in the sky. You’ll be amazed at the rich green colors and beautiful clouds.

The workshop fee includes everything but your flights and drinks. I’ll provide transportation as well as meals at some of the finer dining spots in Pullman. We’ll be out early each morning for sunrise and return to the hotel or town for breakfast before heading out again. During the day we will shoot abandoned houses, trucks and the gorgeous rolling hills. We may take a break in the afternoon to work on our images collectively.

We literally will cover hundreds of miles each day.  We’ll go where other workshops can’t go and you’ll experience the people and culture of the Palouse.  You’ll discover why this is one of my favorite places to photograph and why each visit is always different.

This will be an amazing opportunity to work elbow to elbow and do critiques of the images we shoot as well as discover the methods to get the most from your files. We’ll also have a lot of fun!)
