Yosemite Photo Workshops

Extraordinary Photography Workshops, Tours, and Training in Yosemite National Park


Do you know about Yosemite’s “natural firefall,” Yosemite’s best locations for photographing spring bloom and fall color, the best time for a rainbow at each of Yosemite’s waterfalls, or where in Yosemite to be with your camera at sunrise and sunset? I can show you all these things, guide you to all the "classic" Yosemite images, and show you many equally great but less known locations.

What makes these photo workshops special?

I love what I do. And unlike many photographers for whom Yosemite is just one workshop subject among many, I am very much a California and Yosemite specialist. Also unlike many photo workshops, you'll be dealing with me, personally, from beginning to end. I'll respond to your inquiry, answer all your questions, help you prepare, and (with help from a qualified assistant) lead your workshop myself.

To see my qualifications, first visit my blog and look at my images. If you don’t like what you see, read no further. If you do like my work, you may not even care that my photography is featured in books, magazines, art galleries, and private collections, and on calendars and greeting cards. Of more significance may be that I’m a California native, a frequent Yosemite visitor for over 40 years, and a Yosemite photographer for nearly 30 years. I have photographed Yosemite in all seasons, day and night, sun and rain and snow, close-up and wide angle. I'm an experienced and enthusiastic trainer who loves photographing nature as much as you do. I also love showing others what makes Yosemite the most beautiful place on earth.

I'll do whatever I can to help you get great images and to make you a better photographer. You'll also have a great time.
