What can be said about Yosemite that has not already been written about for years. It is a truly magical place, filled with mystical waterfalls and lush green valley floors. Aside from the famous Half Dome and El Capitan rock formations, the views, hiking and general feel of the place feel very other worldly. For this workshop, we will focus on a variety of locations which will be shot both for sunrise and sunset. Tunnel View, Bridal Falls, Yosemite Falls and Glacier Point to name a few will be key photography spots. Weather permitting, we will also do a sunset shoot at Mono Lake (depends if the roads will be closed - will know later in the year). Andrei and his assistant will be there to guide and assist you with your gear, composition, filters and night photography. 

Through a special partnership with Phase One Cameras, you will have the opportunity to use the industry-leading camera system along with multiple Schneider Lenses. The incredible resolution power of these systems will allow you to capture the most detailed and vibrant images. Phase One representative Scott Nidermaier will be in attendance to answer any technical questions as well as provide Capture One training.

Included in the workshop is an exclusive meet and greet with Film Solutions printing house who will walk you through their preparation and final printing of your actual chosen image taken during the workshop. They will provide a 30x40 print on high-quality Hahnemühle paper (additional fee should you wish to have it mounted).

 

This workshop is open to all levels of photography.
