Activity Level and Weather Considerations
Students should be in good health and feel comfortable walking or standing for extended periods of time. Sturdy boots are necessary. Daily activities may include light hiking on uneven ground and shooting photos from the ground. Rain and even snow are possible. Please be prepared and dress accordingly.
We suggest that students bring the camera equipment they typically shoot with. This should be in a backpack or some sort of easy-to-carry case. We also recommend bringing personal laptops, card readers, and external hard drives to store and backup images. Computer equipment will not be taken into the field; it will be used for editing and review after the shoot. Lightroom editing software is highly recommended.
We also recommend students use a camera that has exposure control and an interchangeable lens system. That said, students do not need to own a wide variety of equipment or lenses for this course. Being able to experiment with a few focal lengths via an interchangeable lens system will aid students in capturing the action as scenes change throughout the workshop. The course will cover photography fundamentals and theory—elements that remain consistent across camera systems.
The workshop price is $2,100. This includes everything except lodging meals and transportation to and from the hotel. Students are expected to book their own lodging at the Hyatt Hotel. A deposit of $600 is due upon registration, with the balance due 75 days before the workshop. Returning students receive a discount.
It is customary for students to tip at the end of the workshop, which is then divided among support staff.
ADD ON | Lightroom Plus
The Lightroom Plus Class gives students an additional day of training behind the computer before the photography workshop begins. This hands-on course covers the core fundamentals of a professional photography workflow.

This class is perfect for beginners and advanced students alike—those who want to elevate their understanding of media management and accelerate their photographic skills.
