Olympic Peninsula Photo Tour - June 8-12, 2020 5 Full Days: $1799.00/Limit 10.
Join Denise Ippolito and local naturalist Roy Kropp for a five day photo adventure through three distinct ecosystems; Rain forests, coastal beaches and glaciated peaks. We will experience forests covered in moss and ferns, Big leaf maples, Douglas firs and Sitka spruce. Roosevelt Elk frequent the rain forests and are visible from the trails. Waterfalls and cascades galore. On the coast we will photograph sunsets, ocean sea stacks, and tide pools.
Participants will learn to “embrace the chaos” as many of the scenes can feel overwhelming at first. Learning to recognize and extract a good composition will be paramount for this trip. Another great lesson on this workshop will be to “fear no light” — learning how to see light in the forest and use it to your advantage takes a bit of getting use to.
Our tentative schedule includes locations such as: Sol Duc Falls, The Hoh Rain Forest, Second Beach, Rialto Beach and Crescent Beach, Hurricane Ridge, Salt Creek, Madison Falls, Upper Dungeness, Marymere Falls, Moments in Time Trail and more.
Participants should be physically fit and able to walk at least two miles at one time, most trails are level and easy with some being a little but more rugged but still very doable. We will not be walking at a fast pace since photography is our goal-not hiking.
A detailed PDF file will be sent upon registration. This workshop has a lot of people on the interested list -so first come first served and all payments are non-refundable-so please check your schedules carefully before signing up.
