The border where eastern Washington and Northern Idaho meet is a photographer’s dream in the summertime. Countless miles of rolling hills present stunning patchworks of color, texture and pattern with fields of wheat, barley, peas, lentils and canola. These spectacular panoramic views combined with country roads dotted with 100+ year old barns and wildflowers will give you many locations to roam and capture.
Your fieldwork begins at the top of Steptoe Butte, a 400 million year old overlook, as sunset hues warm the landscape below. Explore the ghost town of Elberton, where a great fire and the Great Depression sent inhabitants looking for a better life.
Ecosystems collide at Kamiak Butte where a rich forest of pine and fur falls away to sage desert below. Take a break from landscapes in Uniontown (population 300), where artisans have taken an old dairy barn and renovated it into a thriving work and gallery space. The metal wheel art surrounding the property casts striking silhouettes against the grasslands.
This Palouse photography workshop combines a variety of photographic opportunities from landscapes and panoramas to creative macro and under the expert guidance of travel photographer Kerrick James, your artistic vision will undoubtedly flourish.
Double occupancy lodging and roundtrip transportation from Spokane, Washington is included in your workshop.
