Olympic National Park offers up a multitude of beautiful landscapes indicative of the Pacific Northwest. During this photography workshop, we may visit the Hoh Rain Forest and its Hall of Mosses as well as the forests found in the Quinault region of the park. We will also photograph the rugged coastline and its awe-inspiring sea stacks which can be found at First, Second, and Third Beaches. Other coastal locations include Ruby and Rialto beaches. Around Lake Crescent, we will explore the inner forested areas in search of cascades and waterfalls. This photography workshop will take advantage of the best the northwest has to offer on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula.
The variety of subjects in the rainforest is unrivaled. Mosses, lichens, mushrooms, and more fill the forests with life and subject matter.
Sunset & Sunrise Seascapes
The rugged coast of the Olympic Peninsula will offer us opportunities to work on movement with water and a focus on using shutter speed and filters for creative control of your images.
Small Workshop Group Size
Our photo workshops are kept small and personable. You are sure to get ample time with the instructor over the course of the workshop.
