Join us for a hands-on field photography workshop in Yosemite National Park in late April. This workshop will explore four different areas of the park with group shoots in the morning and afternoon. There will also be ample free time to explore other areas of the park with our cameras.

Before the Yosemite excursion, we will meet twice on campus to cover the basics of landscape photography, drawing inspiration from the classic black-and-white works of Ansel Adams and the color photography of Galen Rowell. After the trip, we will meet two more times in the classroom to review student work from the weekend excursion.

This course is open to beginning- and intermediate-level photographers looking to expand their shooting skills and broaden their vision. Students must own and be familiar with their cameras to take full advantage of this course.

The field shoots in Yosemite will take place on April 22 and April 23, with an optional shoot on the afternoon of Friday, April 21.

Transportation, lodging, meals, and park entry costs will be the responsibility of the student. Students are strongly urged to reserve lodging in (or near) Yosemite National Park as soon as possible.

Tuition discounts are not available.
