Olympic National Park
May 17-20, 2018 | $1195 per person


I live about two hours from the park and photograph there extensively. If you like greenery, dramatic coastlines and beaches, consider coming with us to Olympic National Park. We’ll visit locations such as the Hoh Rainforest, Hurricane Ridge, The Sol Duc Valley, Ruby Beach, and many more during our workshop. Having visited and conducted many workshops in the park over the past 20 years, we know some secret locations! The diversity of the ecosystems in such proximity makes this one of the most desirable areas on earth to photograph.

May is a great time to be here since the rainy season makes for great sunsets and light. So yes, I’m hoping for rain! Not heavy rain, but cloudy, drizzly, light rain from time to time! Typically, the best photography here is made in the soft light of a rainy day as we move about the park. The rain serves to bring out the deep lush greens of the native flora. The advantage of making images in the rain (hopefully drizzle and/or light rain!) is that when most objects are wet they glisten and the water bends the reflected light coming off an object’s surface. The water reflects the light in various directions which intensifies and enhances the already special effect of the deep green lush rainforests that we’ll be experiencing. May often offers some fantastic sunsets after a storm as well!

We’ll meet in Forks, Washington on the evening of May 16 at 6pm in the hotel lobby to get to know each other, go over itineraries and discuss our objectives for the workshop.
