Photograph Oregon's stunning cascades this spring in the spectacular Coastal Range, part of the Pacific Temperate Rainforest Eco-region. This is an area rich in photo and adventure opportunities from wildlife and picturesque forest to sand dunes, beaches and thundering rocky coastlines. There are also charming pastoral scenes, old barns, covered bridges and lighthouses galore.
Our guided 3-day photo tour and workshop focusing on lesser known Oregon (USA) waterfalls located in the stunning coastal range. Hikes will visit four locations, totalling 10+ waterfalls and cascades. Access to photo locations ranges from easy trails to boulder scrambles to an all day trek. Our guide and instructor, Suzon Murray, is a local who is familiar with photographing all these unique locations. This is scheduled at the end of the rainy season when water will still be flowing in abundance. We will be up with the sun to photograph in the soft early light, then break mid-day for instruction. We hit the trails again in the afternoon/evening for more breathtaking water photos until sunset. So, our schedule is jam-packed. We are hoping for clear weather as rains generally taper off starting mid-April but we will venture forward rain or shine.
Instructions will cover all aspects of waterfall photography from planning your hikes, composition, photography techniques and tricks, to editing your final photos to take them to the next level.
Lunches are provided daily. Accommodations are not included in the workshop price, but affordable lodging can be found in nearby Florence, (mid-coast Oregon) or you are welcome to camp for free at our home-base in Deadwood (nighttime temps in the mid-40s/low 50s, Bathroom/Shower available).
Group size is limited so everyone can have the best experience possible with one-on-one instruction. As we will be so busy during this workshop, we will continue the learning afterward in a private Facebook group, where you can have your photos critiqued and ask questions as you are working through your editing at home.
