Grand Teton National Park and the Teton Range have some of the most dramatic scenery in the Rocky Mountains as well as prolific, photogenic wildlife. Late-September brings vibrant fall color to the area’s aspens and cottonwoods as well as moose and elk in rut. With Joe as your guide and instructor, this four-day workshop will bring this magnificent national park to life before your lens.
During this workshop, Joe will teach a variety of techniques that will allow you to advance both your technical skills and artistic vision. We focus on a number of professional field techniques to help you create dramatic and powerful nature images, including working with dramatic light, including sunrise and sunset; the fundamentals of powerful compositions; and abstract techniques for creating artistic photographs. We’ll also teach you professional “digital darkroom” secrets and explore a number of artistic philosophies that will help you find your own personal vision.
