Trip Dates

October 3-6, Thursday to Sunday, 2013

For a photographer living in Colorado the possibilities are endless. From the high desert of the Western Slope to the alpine peaks and meadows of the Continental Divide to the ranches of the Eastern Plain we have an amazingly diverse landscape to explore and capture. And who could forget the dramatic diversity of flora at the Dener Botanic Gardens!? What we don’t have is a coast and a city full of big hills and a giant bridge that glows at sunset. That’s why they build airplanes. And that’s why those same planes fly from Denver to San Francisco.

Whenever I get the urge to see and experience a dramatically different landscape a new and unique quality of light and some architecture and ocean beaches that we just don’t have here in Colorado I try to head to California. It’s close, not too expensive and absolutely fun and exciting to photograph.  Once again this year we are offering an exciting photography workshop in San Francisco with me, the Denver Botanic Gardens official photographer Scott Dressel-Martin.

San Francisco has a list a mile long of great locations to photograph. While we don’t have the final shooting itinerary set quite yet, some of the choices we have are amazing. We’ll plan to photograph the Golden Gate Bridge from the beach at sunset and wander the streets of Chinatown and practice our street photography skills. Among the other great locations we have to choose from are the Marin Headlands shooting back across the Golden Gate toward the city at night, classic views of San Francisco row houses with the city behine and Filoli, which is a country estate outside the city with magnificent gardens. It’s not quite Downton Abby, but it’s close! There’s always the Japanese Tea Garden and Golden Gate Park too! We also have a line on  an opoortunity to photograph the gardens and landscapes of Alcatraz. We’ll know soon if that will fit into our trip!!

Along with a busy shooting schedule you’ll also have ample opportunities to work with me to improve your photography techniques and personal photographic vision. This workshop is a lot about traveling with your camera, developing your personal vision and learning how to make the technical adjustments needed to make that vision a photographic reality! I have been teaching photography for nearly thirty years (apparently since I was a baby!) and feel I have an intuitive and generous teaching style backed up by many years of experience as a full-time professional photographer. I will work with each participant to help them take the next step in their creative and technical evolution as a photographer.

This trip is fun, creative, exciting, a bit tiring and extremely rewarding. Join me in exercising your creativity and opening your eyes to the vast world of creative image making opportunities in San Francisco! To find out more information or to join us, visit us online or call 720-865-3580.
