Landscape Photography Workshops : Mt Rainier Just Like Paradise Photo Workshop 2019


   This scheduled 3 day in the field workshop will be held the second week in August based on my years of experience photographing the park during the wildflower season. Even in less than monumental years or when the season comes earlier than expected, there is still an astounding amount of breathtaking photographic opportunities in the park during this time including spectacular views of the mountain at every turn, waterfalls, old growth forests, rivers, streams and lakes. If you do not have the opportunity to register for my flex workshop described below, but still want your very best chance at seeing the incredible display of wildflowers in the park, this is it!

   We will be meeting at paradise lodge the morning of the 10th, to begin a short hike just before dawn and the workshop will conclude just after sunset on August 12th. The closest major airport to Mount Rainier National Park is the Seattle Tacoma International Airport(SEA). This airport is in Seattle, Washington and is approx 80 miles from the Nisqually entrance to Rainier National Park. Transportation to and from the park, hotel accommodations, entrance fees and travel during the workshop are not included in the registration fee for this workshop. Those interested can email me directly for my food/lodging and travel recommendations. Once registered, you will receive a greater detail of information about the workshop, the places we will be visiting, the expected conditions and all of my gear recommendations specifically tailored to this workshop. Light to Moderate hiking on uneven surfaces will be required and some hiking may be considered strenuous for short periods of time and by those less experienced. We will not be going on any extreme or back country hikes on this workshop.

   This workshop is expected to be one of my most popular of 2019. If you are interested, I suggest you do not delay in signing up. To register, a 50% deposit is required with the remaining 50% due on or before May 1st, 2019.
