Summer Photo Workshops

Vail Nature Center

Vail Nature Center – Vail, Colorado

I’m excited to announce that this summer I’ve partnered with Walking Mountains Science Center in Avon, Colorado to offer a series of nature photography workshops as well as host an Adult Science Seminar on Conservation Photography.

Nature Photography Workshop

I’m conducting a nature photography workshop Mondays from 8:30am – 12:30pm June 30 – August 18, 2014 at the historic Vail Nature Center in Vail, Colorado. During the half-day workshop we’ll use our cameras to explore the abundant beauty along picturesque Gore Creek and the sweeping views east toward the majestic Grand Traverse. As we explore, we’ll discuss and practice digital photography techniques to help improve the way you create images of the Natural World. Adult participation is $45, visit Walking Mountains Science Center here for more information or to sign up.

Adult Science Seminar

I’m conducting a two-part Adult Science Seminar Thursday August 14th from 6pm-7:30pm at the Walking Mountains Science Center in Avon, Colorado and Friday August 15 from 9am – 3pm in the White River National Forest.

The seminar begins at Walking Mountains Science Center Thursday evening. There I’ll discuss the use of photography as a powerful tool for environmental conservation. Skills and techniques for telling compelling visual stories will be introduced using images from The Lodgepole Project, my conservation photography project that uses the historic mountain pine beetle epidemic as a vehicle to educate a larger audience about the impacts human generated climate change is having on North America’s forests and highlight the achievable solutions we have to reverse human generated climate change.

The following day our group will explore the Lost Lake Trail in Colorado’s White River National Forest. Beautiful Lost Lake Trail has been heavily impacted by mountain pine beetle infestation and recent logging operations. As we practice the skills and techniques presented the previous evening, we’ll have the opportunity to witness and discuss as a group the impacts human generated climate change is having in our own backyard. Adult participation is $125 for both days, visit Walking Mountains Science Center here for more information or to sign up.

I’m also available for private instruction throughout the summer. Send me an email to plan a half-day or full-day photography excursion in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains.
