Landscape Photography Workshops : Leavenworth II Landscape Photography Workshop 2020

THE AMAZING COLORS OF LEAVENWORTH - OCTOBER 23rd - 25TH, 2020

INVESTMENT $1095

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, WA Friday October 23rd- Sunday October 25th, 2020 at the peak of fall color! 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, with 50% due at the time of booking to secure your spot. The remaining balance will be due before July 1st, 2020. 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.

Firesticks

Fine Art Limited Edition of 100 - Fog begins to form when water vapor condenses into tiny liquid water droplets suspended in the air. Six examples of ways that water vapor is added to the air are by wind convergence into areas of upward motion; precipitation or virga falling from above; daytime heating evaporating water from the surface of oceans, water bodies, or wet land; transpiration from plants; cool or dry air moving over warmer water; and lifting air over mountains.

Tumble Rumble Ramble

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.

Morning Rush
Fine Art Limited Edition of 100 - Leavenworth sits on the southeast side of the North Cascades collage, which is a group of terranes that accreted to North America all about the same time. Marine fossils indicate that the terranes were probably a group of islands originating out in the South Pacific hundreds of million years ago. The terranes landed on North America about 90mya(million years ago) in the middle of the Cretaceous period. As they smashed into their new home they were a puzzle of north- south slices. As accretion continued they were cut into horizontal (east-west) slices.

Brushed
Fine Art Limited Edition of 50 - In intentional camera movement (ICM), a camera is moved during the exposure for a creative or artistic effect. This causes the image points to move across the recording medium, producing an apparent streaking in the resulting image.
Shrouded In Mystery

Fine Art Limited Edition of 50 - Lake Wenatchee State Park is a public recreation area located at the eastern end of Lake Wenatchee, a glacier- and snowmelt-fed lake in the Wenatchee National Forest on the eastern slopes of the Cascades Mountain Range in the state of Washington. The state park covers 492 acres (199 ha) split into two parts—the north shore park and the south shore park—separated by the Wenatchee River.

Colorblast

Fine Art Limited Edition of 50 - Two-dimensional mirror images can be seen in the reflections of mirrors or other reflecting surfaces, or on a printed surface seen inside-out. If we look at an object that is effectively two-dimensional (such as writing) and then turn it towards a mirror, the object turns through an angle of 180º and we see a left-right reversal in the mirror. In this example, it is the change in orientation rather than the mirror itself that causes the observed reversal.
