Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, United States.

Come photograph one of America's grandest National Park's in one spectacular fall workshop this September 23-27, 2023 with me, my wife Beri, and former Sports Illustrated staffer and workshop leader Ron Modra.

We will begin in the heart of the fall color season in Grand Teton National Park. The aspens and cottonwoods will be at or near peak color with the dramatic sweep of the Grand Teton Range and the iconic Snake River serving as a backdrop.

Grand Teton National Park has been described as one of the true last wild west locations!

We will stay in nearby Jackson, Wyoming at the new 49er Inn and Suites. The hotel is located in the heart of Jackson and within walking distance to a bevy of restaurants and shopping. A public parking garage and vertical garden is located directly across the street. A buffet breakfast is included.

This workshop will have an emphasis on field location shooting. It will also include sessions in image workflow (from RAW to finished print) using the latest versions of Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. There will also be a minimum of two image review sessions. Workflow topics will include: preparing an image for both print and web presentation, proper methods of setting white and black points, how to "properly massage the middle tones," color balance, localized tonal and color adjustments via luminosity masking, 32-bit blending techniques, blending multiple exposures via layers and masks, freehand masking techniques, section of masks based on both tones and colors, proper sharpening and noise reduction techniques, etc. Image review sessions will be biased on the vision aspect where I will offer suggestions to help strengthen compositions.

NOTE:  Former 26-year Sports Illustrated staff Photographer Ron Modra will be assisting me on this workshop!

Some of the locations that we plan to visit include:

Oxbow Bend
Snake River Overlook
Mormon Row Barns
Jenny Lake
