Oregon Coast Photography Workshop
On my Oregon Coast Photography Workshop, you will experience some of the finest coastline in the world. This intersection of rock and water contains an endless array of fascinating rocky points, arches, sea-stacks, and sandy shores. From the dramatic beauty of Samuel Boardman and Bandon to the south, all the way up to Cape Kiwanda and Cannon Beach in the north, this stretch of coast is as beautiful as they come. Explore and photograph this world-class coastal environment. This multi-day photo workshop will help photographers create entrancing photos of the breathtaking landscapes found here. The workshop focuses on understanding your camera’s settings in order to break into new creative realms. There is a strong emphasis on producing striking and powerful compositions, as well as telling a story with your photos. The workshop will cover shoot planning and how to be in the right place at the right time.
Oregon Coast Highlights
Learn to Manage Light
Whether you want to use filters for the “all-in-one” approach or bracket for HDR, we’ll help you master dynamic light.
The rugged Oregon coast offers a wide range of interesting seascape photographic options.
Learn to See
We will be teaching you how to see the unseen. Pre-visualizing long exposures and monochrome possibilities will be part of our focus.
Jim and Vinny both reside in the Seattle area of the Pacific Northwest. While Jim has recently moved to the area in 2015, Vinny has lived and explored this area his entire life. Working together at Kenmore Camera, Vinny and Jim are teaming up to lead our Palouse workshop. Through a combination of theory, philosophy, examples, and on-the-spot feedback, they help students reach those “a-ha!” moments that take their photography to the next level.
Jim Patterson’s first experiences with this area began with a trip in 2010 exploring the area in as much detail as possible. Further scouting trips have added to the list of locations to visit based on weather conditions.
Vinny brings an enthusiasm for the outdoors and an extensive knowledge of the outdoors. He has also worked in the camera industry for well over a decade and brings a wealth of technical knowledge along with him in addition to the creative side of photography.
