Yosemite is as famous for its crowds as its scenery. But just beyond the pavement, crowds, and over-photographed vistas lies a beautiful world that few photographers reach, in the high alpine basins of the Yosemite high country. In this workshop I’ll take you to sparkling alpine lakes, polished granite basins, flowing creeks, flower gardens, and ridge top views that lie within a few miles of the teeming roadways, yet feel like they’re deep in the backcountry.
You’ll also learn the techniques needed to make beautiful photographs once you get to these spots, including how to master light, exposure, and composition. Part of this learning process includes portfolio reviews – one of the best ways to advance your photographic skills.
This workshop will include moderate to strenuous hiking (up to 6 miles per day) at high elevations. Participants MUST be healthy and in good physical condition. The workshop is based in Lee Vining, outside the eastern entrance to Yosemite, but the field sessons will take place in the high country of Yosemite National Park and the adjacent Inyo National Forest, at elevations of 8,000 to 11,000 feet, and the elevation makes the hiking much more difficult. You must be prepared to hike on trails with elevation gains of 1000 feet within one mile that contain rocky and uneven hiking surfaces. If you have any questions or concerns about your ability to participate in this workshop, please email me.
All camera formats and levels of photographic experience are welcome.
