Point Reyes National Seashore Park is a land of thunderous ocean breakers crashing against rocky headlands, and expansive sand beaches grace the coastline then fold back to open grasslands before lifting higher into the brushy hillsides and forested ridges. Wisps of fog wash up on coastal hills, and Tule elk roam in gold and green meadows. Jutting dramatically out into the blue Pacific, the 70,000-acre Point Reyes National Seashore is home to 1500 plant and animal species with 80 miles of pristine coastline. Point Reyes’ diversity is a perfect location for a National Park Photography Expeditions First Horizons Workshop. The variety of subjects and compositional opportunities present incredible teachable moments for developing landscape photographers. The class will explore and photograph along backcountry roads, which will take you to remote and stunning locations during the golden hours and at other times when polarizing and neutral density filters can make a creative difference.
The Point Reyes National Seashore First Horizons Photography Workshop is a 3-day full immersion program from May 12-15, 2021 that teaches the fundamentals of fine art landscape photography. We are not a photography tour provider; we are a visual arts, photography education program. Thus, you will spend significant time at each location with your instructor to develop a deep understanding of your subject and theme and learn to complete your vision in post-production.
