Time for a little selfless promotion!
It seems like this time of year is when most of my fellow photographers are planning their itineraries for next year. With that in mind I just want to talk about my photo workshops a bit. ( Much more information can be found at JackGrahamPhoto.com). I have quite a lot planned this year, all in places I have been many times, places where I know where to be at the right time of day.
May brings me to the Oregon Coast, Bandon to Cannon Beach, with my workshop co-host Bill Fortney. I am really excited about this one. The weather and light on the pacific coast is always different, always awe-inspiring.
After that, June features workshops in the Palouse (for Fuji X System users), and a Pacific Northwest Art School workshop on Whidbey Island — FROM CONCEPT TO PRINT.
Summer photo workshops take us to Mt Rainier, to photograph the amazing landscape and wildflowers, in August. Also in August will be another trip to the Oregon Coast and a stop in Portland, Oregon to shoot the always photographic Japanese Garden and Swan Island Dahlia Farm.
If you like fall color, you need to come to the Eastern Sierra with us in October. The Aspens are usually at peak at this time. We shoot in the canyons and lakes in the Eastern Sierra close to Lee Vining California on HWY 395. We also get to Bishop and up into the White Mountains to photograph the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest. This will be the 24th annual workshop, co-led with my good friend Guy Tal, always a very popular event.
Right after the Eastern Sierra trip, I’ll be heading back to Ohio for the Fall Photo workshop that has been so successful over the past few years. Co-led with Bill Fortney, we’ll be visiting the best kept secret location in Northeast Ohio … the Cuyahoga National Park. We will also be spending a day on an actual Amish farm exploring the photo opportunities in the barns and fields. The meal at the end of the day isn’t bad either!
November brings another Pacific Northwest Art School course covering Abstract Photography, on beautiful Whidbey Island. Then I’ll be heading east, to the Great Smoky Mountains — a Fuji X user’s only workshop co-led with Bill Fortney.
Finally, we’ll end the 2017 photo workshops with a visit to the Grand Teton National Park. Winter here creates a surreal landscape and many photo opps. Snow is almost always present in the park this time of year, and with fewer visitors than in the summer, wildlife is also more abundant.
