Glacier National Park, July 9-14, 2018
– Sorry, we are full. If you would like to be placed on a waiting list, please contact me –
Please join me and popular workshop leader John Barclay as we return to explore and photograph the splendor of Glacier National Park. This park is a jewel in the national parks system, hosting not only a large number of namesake glaciers and snow fields, but the headwaters for three major watersheds, sending flows towards Hudson Bay, the Pacific Ocean, and Guld of Mexico.
The park is home to wolves, moose, grizzly bears, black bears, marmots, bighorn sheep and mountain goats. During our 2017 workshop, we saw all but the wolves. It was an unforgettable experience. Of course, we cannot forget the massive peaks, beautiful valleys, and a myriad of rivers, waterfalls, and wildflowers.
This workshop will include some optional hikes up to five miles, but there is more than enough to photograph much closer to the car, if that is your preference. Of the five photographs above, only the last one required a hike (4 easy miles roundtrip) to Avalanche Lake. The rest were shot from the road or parking lots. So, there is something for everyone. We encourage both color and black and white photographers to join us, as well as those working with film or digital.
What will be different this year? We are going a month earlier that last year so should be able to enjoy some wonderful spring, mountain runoff and hearty mountain snowfields. Also, there should still be a lot of snow at Logan Pass, making for some unique photographic possibilities and an increased chance to see bighorn sheep and mountain goats up close. Early July is a special time in Glacier as visitation is below peak and the weather can be dynamic.
In addition guided field work where we can refine our personal styles and help realize our vision, we will have plenty of time to edit our photographs and to improve our workflows. If you need help working in Photoshop or Lightroom, we will be more than glad to help. This is a full-service workshop, and we will not be happy until you are happy.
The course fee includes logistical planning, instruction, and post-workshop assistance, if needed. You will be responsible for your travel to and from the park as well as your room and board. We have made a group reservation at the lovely and peaceful Rising Sun Motor Inn, which will allow us access to the most beautiful areas of this very large park with minimal travel.

Both John and I very much look forward to the opportunity to work with you and hope you will join us.
