Landscape Photography Workshops : Leavenworth III Landscape Photography Workshop 2019

THE AMAZING COLORS OF LEAVENWORTH - OCTOBER 14th - 16TH, 2019

INVESTMENT $1095 This workshop is sold out!

Leavenworth is a city in Chelan County, Washington, United States. It is part of the WenatcheeEast Wenatchee Metropolitan Statistical Area. The entire town center is modeled on a Bavarian village.

I have offered this workshop every year now for the past 6 years. This is one of my most popular workshops of the year, often ending up with a long waiting list so don't hesitate if you would like to join me next year! This workshop will be hosted in Leavenworth, Washington DURING THE WEEK Monday October 14th through Wednesday October 16th, 2019 at the peak of fall color! Because this is a weekday workshop, Leavenworth will practically be empty and we will have the area all to ourselves! I have been photographing this area during fall for the past 8 years and have taught over 45 sold out photography workshops since I began offering them back in 2010. All skill levels may join and the only fitness requirement is the ability to be on your feet for 12 hours as well as some light to moderate hiking. The area we will be covering encompasses a 20 sq mile radius outward from the town of Leavenworth, Washington.

More about Leavenworth can be found here: http://cityofleavenworth.com/ Participants from outside the Western Washington area will want to fly into Seattle (SEA) and rent a standard vehicle for the 2.5 hour drive to Leavenworth. All participants will be responsible for securing their own lodging and travel throughout the workshop, however I may be able to help those who would like to considering sharing accommodations or travel with each other. I recommend lodging at the Icicle Village Resort http://www.iciclevillage.com/ located at the west end of town. This workshop will include three days in the field instruction as well as a mid - day Post Processing & Image Critique session. The time and date of this post processing session will be weather dependent. For those with interest in the business side of nature photography, I am happy to discuss my business, my success in the world of fine art print sales, retail photography and nature photography workshops and offer advice for those who hope to follow the same path with all of those who participate.

The cost of this workshop is $1095 per person to secure your spot. The locations we will be visiting offer easy access, plenty of room for all of us to work and some of the best fall color the Pacific Northwest has to offer! Attendees are encouraged to arrive in Leavenworth the night before the workshop and to consider the drive time from SEA (Seattle Airport) of 2 hours 45 minutes when planning their departure.

Buried Treasure

Fine Art Limited Edition of 50 | A leaf is an organ of a vascular plant and is the principal lateral appendage of the stem. The leaves and stem together form the shoot. Leaves are collectively referred to as foliage, as in "autumn foliage".

Shades  Of The Season

Fine Art Limited Edition of 50 - Carotenoids are present in leaves the whole year round, but their orange-yellow colors are usually masked by green chlorophyll. As autumn approaches, certain influences both inside and outside the plant cause the chlorophylls to be replaced at a slower rate than they are being used up. During this period, with the total supply of chlorophylls gradually dwindling, the "masking" effect slowly fades away. Then other pigments that have been present (along with the chlorophylls) in the cells all during the leaf's life begin to show through. These are carotenoids and they provide colorations of yellow, brown, orange, and the many hues in between.

The Colors Of The Canyon

Fine Art Limited Edition of 50 - Water from the Wenatchee River and its tributaries has been diverted for irrigation since 1891, mainly for orchards. There are two small dams on the Wenatchee River, the Tumwater Canyon Dam, which sits just west of the community of Leavenworth, and the Dryden dam, a low-head dam situated just outside the town of Dryden. The Tumwater Canyon dam originally provided power to the original 2-mile (3.2 km)-long railroad tunnel used near Stevens Pass to get trains across the Cascade Mountains, it was later (starting in 1928) used to power the railroad's electrification from Wenatchee to Skykomish.

Echoes Of Fall

Fine Art Limited Edition of 100 - Betula papyrifera (paper birch, also known as white birch and canoe birch) is a short lived species of birch native to northern North America. Paper birch is named due to the thin white bark which often peels in paper like layers from the trunk. Paper birch is often one of the first species to colonize a burned area within the northern latitudes and an important species for moose browse. The wood is often used for pulpwood and firewood.

The World Beneath

Fine Art Limited Edition of 100 - The Wenatchee River is a river in the U.S. state of Washington, originating at Lake Wenatchee and flowing southeast for 53 miles (85 km), emptying into the Columbia River immediately north of Wenatchee, Washington. On its way it passes the towns of Plain, Leavenworth, Peshastin, Dryden, Cashmere, Monitor, and Wenatchee, all within Chelan County. The river attracts kayaking and river rafting enthusiasts and tourism.

When Too Much Is Almost Enough
Fine Art Limited Edition of 200 - Streams are important as conduits in the water cycle, instruments in groundwater recharge, and corridors for fish and wildlife migration. The biological habitat in the immediate vicinity of a stream is called a riparian zone. Given the status of the ongoing Holocene extinction, streams play an important corridor role in connecting fragmented habitats and thus in conserving biodiversity. The study of streams and waterways in general is known as surface hydrology and is a core element of environmental geography.
