There's nothing like a photo adventure on Oregon's wild and scenic coast. This location has something for every photographic style and taste. In this small workshop we'll spend time both in the classroom and the field honing your photographic skills and creative vision through training, shooting, editing and critiques.
Our home base will be in Newport, a classic harbor town right in the heart of Oregon's spectacular coastline. From coastal landscapes and fishing fleet culture to wildlife and forest streams, this part of the Northwest’s coast is teeming with a diverse array of visual stories to tell. This workshop’s focus will be on honing your skills to better tell those stories.
