What to expect.

Both single and multiple day workshops and photo tours include guided instruction for the duration of the workshop. Plan on getting up before sunrise and likely being out after sunset.

Bottled water and snacks will also be available.


Things We’ll Go Over In Field.


What to Bring.

All workshops include some light to moderate hiking on uneven ground, proper footwear with good traction is highly recommended.

The weather in the mountains can be unpredictable, warm layers(even in summer) as well as a rain jacket are recommended.

Spare batteries and memory cards.

A headlamp, with spare batteries.

Not Included.

With the exception of pizza and soft drinks during the Friday meet and greet on weekend workshops, and light snacks on all workshops, meals and lodging are not included. A list of budget friendly motels will be provided on request. Occasionally I’ll arrange an AirBnB with space available at a reasonable cost on a first come first served basis.

Transportation is not included. To avoid congestion at trail heads and parking areas carpooling is highly encouraged.


A deposit is required to reserve a spot on all workshops, with the balance due a minimum of 60 days prior to the start of the workshop by using the appropriate payment option on each workshop page. (Deposit, Balance Due, Pay in Full)

Cancellations and Refunds.

All fees paid will be fully refunded if cancellation is made more than 60 days prior to the workshop start date. No refunds will be given if cancellations are made less than 60 days prior to the workshop start date. It is advised to get trip insurance.

Rain Refunds.

Generally speaking, all workshops and tours are held rain or shine. In the event that heavy rain forces a cancellation(more than 5 hours) on a single day workshop, a discount of 20% will be given towards a future  single day workshop. In the event of weather forced cancellation on a 2 day workshop(loss of more than one full day) a 30% discount will be given towards a future 2 day workshop. Only one discount may be applied per workshop.

Private Workshops.

Custom tailored to your individual needs, private one-on-one single day and weekend long workshops can be arranged at a cost of $275 and $525 respectively. Transportation during the workshop and lunch each day is included in all private workshops.
