You will be awe struck at the grandeur of Yosemite National Park, from its granite rocks towering over 5,000 feet high to Yosemite Falls one of the largest waterfalls in North America. Yosemite National Park covers 761,268 acres of land, roughly the size of Rhode Island. Before it became a national park, it had been home to the Ahwaneechee Native Americans for 4,000 years. Trappers and the California Gold Rush changed all of this. The park was officially established in 1890 as a National Park and has remained 95% wilderness, becoming the third largest park. Home to 90 species of mammals, including black bears, coyotes, gophers, chipmunks, and at least 300 black bears, and possibly as many as 500. With over 800 miles to explore and photograph, you will come back with a new appreciation of the great outdoors and an enchanting mark on your soul.
Photographing Yosemite is an art of controlling light and capturing it in all its glory. Get your camera and tripod ready because you will come back with some amazing photos. You will be guided to premier locations as we chase the light, seek out natural beauty, and go where the weather goes.
This adventure is designed not only to guide you to the most photogenic locations carefully planned for the best light, but to aid you in mentally visualizing a scene before capturing the decisive moment. Our aim is to raise your awareness and spark your creativity so that you not only go home with images to be proud of, but use your new found skills to improve and expand your photographic technique in general. Apart from the technical aspect of learning your camera settings and capabilities, you will learn how to turn an ordinary image into an extraordinary image by using your own creativity.
In addition, you will become knowledgeable on how to survey the landscape, utilize and approach your environment, photograph people indigenous to the region and the cultural considerations and challenges of photographing in a foreign country. Our time together will include individual and group discussions, inspiring ideas and great fun. We cannot think of a better location to express your creativity than the stunning beauty of Yosemite!
