Oregon Coast Workshop

I wanted to let you all know that there are still a few places left on my Oregon Coast workshop. The workshop is in Newport, Oregon on the central coast July 18 – 22. Sign-ups are through The Santa Fe Workshops.

This workshop is one of my favorite summer workshops and I love being on the Oregon Coast in July- there is usually fog in the morning and at twilight in the harbors, the beaches and lighthouses are not crowded and the evenings are gloriously long. The two big highlights of this workshop are the great tide pools choke full of big green anemones and huge red and orange seastars and our time at the beautiful Oregon Coast Aquarium. We get into the aquarium a couple of hours early so we have the place to ourselves to photograph the amazing and bizarre animals inside. I am always amazed at the images that come from this shoot.

Finally, if you are into harbors (and who isn’t?) Newport has a spectacular working harbor with lots full of piles and piles of very colorful nets and ropes. It is a blast to not only photograph the boats but also to play with all the wonderful shapes and textures of the piles.

Come on out to Oregon. My great buddy and teaching partner, Brenda Berry, is my co-teacher so that pretty much guarantees a fun experience for all. We suggest that you take an extra few days to explore the coast. We will be glad to suggest some more places to go and photograph.

Hope to see you there!
