There are many locations that keen landscape photographers choose to go to in pursuit of their passion, but Yosemite National Park is perhaps the one place most commonly thought to be at the top of the 'Bucket List' and was made famous by the father of landscape photography, Ansel Adams.

Locat­ed in Cal­i­for­ni­a’s Sier­ra Neva­da Moun­tain range and cov­er­ing 1,170 square miles, Yosemite Nation­al Park is with­out doubt an unbe­liev­able loca­tion and we have designed this work­shop so that you will not miss out on any of the pletho­ra of places that offer breath-tak­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties to make amaz­ing land­scape photographs.

Dur­ing our pho­tog­ra­phy tour, we will vis­it many of the clas­si­cal loca­tions such as Val­ley View, Glac­i­er Point, Mir­ror Lake and Olm­stead Point as well as explor­ing the mead­ows of the val­ley floor beneath the tow­er­ing ver­ti­cal cliffs of Cathe­dral Spires, Sen­tinel Rock and the mighty El Cap­i­tan, 3000ft above the val­ley floor were the Merced Riv­er fol­lows. A trip to Yosemite would not be com­plete with­out expe­ri­enc­ing the raw pow­er of the water­falls which cas­cade down from the High Sier­ra above and we will stand at the base of Bridal Veil Falls and Yosemite Falls. In the qui­et of the evening we will wan­der along the banks of Tenaya Creek and expe­ri­ence the sun set­ting on the mas­sive face of Half Dome from Swing­ing Bridge.

Our time in Yosemite Nation­al Park will not be con­fined to the val­ley alone. We will ven­ture up the Tio­ga pass that ris­es to over 10,000ft to huge white gran­ite domes with errat­ic boul­ders and ancient Jef­fery Pines and views over to Tenaya Lake and the vast flats Tuolumne Mead­ows with its stands of pines and glacial lakes. We will of course be vis­it­ing Mari­posa Grove and the Giant Sequoias and spend time absorb­ing the majes­tic beau­ty of these trees, many of which that are over 1500 years old.

You will be spend­ing plen­ty of time out with your cam­era where you will get of 1 to 1 tuition that will include both tech­ni­cal aspects of dig­i­tal land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy as well as gain­ing a good eye’ for images along the way.

Of course we will be vis­it­ing all of the acclaimed clas­sic loca­tions that are an essen­tial part of a vis­it to Yosemite as a land­scape pho­tog­ra­ph­er, but we will also spend time in less obvi­ous loca­tions that can equal­ly reveal the true essence of Yosemite. It is impor­tant to try to put your own per­son­al stamp’ on how you see this world renowned place and allow your­self the time to explore its inner beauty.
