The scenery in the Eastern Sierra ...
is breathtaking, and access to numerous scenic locations is easy, making it a fantastic venue for a photography tour. In a region known for wonders such as Mono Lake, ancient bristlecone pines, Mount Whitney and the Eastern Sierra escarpment in America’s deepest valley, Bishop is an outdoor photographer’s dream and we will be exploring many locations from high desert scenery, granite arches, tufa towers, ancient bristlecone pine forests, desert dunes and mountain landscapes.
I am keeping the workshop numbers low in order to maximize instruction and shooting time. Maximum of 6 persons.
