Park Photography Workshop
Learn hands-on Landscape Art
Photography from a pro! Spend seven days in the wilderness backcountry of
California’s Kings Canyon National Park with acclaimed landscape art
photographer Tom Gamache. Glacier carved Evolution Valley surrounded by
the rocky ramparts of California’s Sierra Nevada range is the destination for
this “one of a kind” hands-on photography workshop.
“By the end of the first day, we
had gotten our money’s worth. Everything else we learned was a bonus.” Sherry
and Ross Smith/August 2000 Indianapolis, Indiana
“It was only a few days. I got so
much out of it. It felt like a couple of weeks.”
Ben Pankrantz / August 1999 Agoura Hills, California
“I get the feeling that he’d
(Gamache) be just as patient with someone with half my experience and just as
enlightening to someone knowing twice what I do.” Jean Dubail /August 2000
Editor, Cleveland Plain Dealer
Designed for people with all levels of
experience, except beginners, this trek/workshop into some of the world’s most
dramatic scenery is a never to be forgotten experience. You will be instructed
and assisted throughout the week by master outdoor fine art photographer – Tom
Gamache, who believes that the creation of an expressive photographic image
implies two things:
Something to express
The ability to express it ...
Evolution Valley and the surrounding
Sierra Nevada high country in Kings Canyon National Park will excite your
creative vision and this workshop will help you develop the ability to capture
it like never before. Limited to only six participants, this intimate,
informative and exciting workshop will fill quickly. All manual operated cameras
(and formats) including automatic focusing and exposure cameras with manual
controls are compatible with the program. A list of suggested film, lenses and
reading material will be supplied upon registration.
