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.

Steptoe Butte stands out in the center of the Palouse and offers 360 views of the surrounding area.  Other locations throughout the Palouse also offer elevated vantage points to capture the endless layers and compositions and we’ll explore those areas too.

Pullman, WA and Moscow, ID are the largest towns near the Palouse with Spokane, WA being 90 minutes to the North.  The weather during May ranges from cool and breezy to hot and stable with temperatures 40-90 degrees Fahrenheit.  This variable weather means variable light and this is why this is a great time to shoot here!

A Private Photo Workshop in the Palouse is also available upon request immediately before or following this workshop.

  • 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.
