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.

Working In The Fields

In the past we have held workshops in the Palouse with 12 or more people. I am now offering something special. Come shoot with me and four other photographers (5 of us total) in the Palouse during the harvest season. We’ll be photographing from dawn to sunset at some of amazing 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.

Seeing Differently – Window On The Side Of A Barn

I’ll pick you up at the Spokane airport at noon on the 18th or 25th of August. 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. The rooms are large, quiet and comfortable.

Palouse Patterns

We’ll work our way south and check you into the hotel by late afternoon. We’ll then head out to dinner and a possible sunset. You’ll be amazed at the interesting patterns made by the various fall harvest colors which add to the richness of the images.
