A Photography Paradise & A Photographer's Paradise

Our Palouse Photography Workshop is timed to photograph this amazing landscape in glorious green spring colors.  The Palouse has been called America’s Tuscany for it’s rolling green hills, gorgeous light and endless photography potential.  The Palouse of Eastern Washington is a vast area connected by a spider web of dirt roads, highways and paved country roads begging for exploration.

Steptoe Butte is a highlight of the area and offers spectacular views in all directions.  Come join us and explore the Palouse and see for yourself why photographers visit time and time again.

I’ve spent much time in the Palouse and find it to be a personally rewarding experience each and every time.  I want to share with you what I find to be special in the Palouse and help you discover that for yourself as well.

A workshop with me is unlike any other workshop you’ll find in the Palouse.  Most “Workshops” in the Palouse will take you to Steptoe Butte and and Palouse Falls, both places which are obvious and you could do on your own.  I know beyond a doubt the real Palouse is beyond Steptoe Butte and out on the dirt roads, off the single lane highways and in the towns which dot the landscape.  The real Palouse is all about the light and landscape together, with all the surprises it brings.  The real Palouse is in the experience as much as in the view.

A workshop in the Palouse with me is an opportunity to create images a little richer than a postcard view.  It’s an opportunity to see the Palouse how you wouldn’t see on your own. With a small group of 4 or less, I’m right there with you pointing out interesting light, helping you with technical and artistic challenges and encouraging you to find your own way in which the Palouse is special.  This is impossible in a large group, no other way to say this and that’s why I keep it small.

Let’s chat.  

I’d love to help you get started and have a memorable experience in the Palouse of Washington!

Palouse Photography Workshop 2023

Week 3: June 11-15, 2023 *1 spot remaining

  • Learn while creating images in small groups. The purpose of the workshop is to create and have hands on instruction while exploring.  Large tour groups can’t offer this level of personalized instruction.
  • This workshop is limited to a small group of 4 people, with 1 instructor.  This allows focused help and guiding while allowing our group to be flexible and adaptable to changing conditions.
  • We’ll be exploring and shooting during this workshop.  This is NOT a tour of well known locations in the Palouse or going from icon to icon.  The real Palouse is found on the dirt roads, the surprises around the corners and the ability to chase conditions.  There are rustic barns and farms EVERYWHERE.
