Note to those seeking a
workshop in one of the national parks: To legally operate a
photography workshop in any national park (as well as other national lands)
in the United States, the workshop operator must have either a
Commercial Use Authorization or Incidental Business Permit. If you are
part of a group that does not have the proper permitting, your group will
likely be asked to leave the park if caught (and in most parks now, the
rangers do check groups for permits). We are permitted to
operate in every national park in which we offer a workshop, and we
are very proud of that. It is our belief that the anyone using the
park to generate income should be happy to share those revenues with the
park system that we know drastically needs the money (and the money for
these permits stays in the park
that collects it). If you are
registering for someone else's workshop, we highly recommend that you ask
them if they are permitted. Not all are, and the risk becomes yours
(we have heard of two groups asked to leave a park recently and know that
the individual parks are trying to enforce these rules now).
We will help you visualize in new, more creative ways, and
stretch your photographic eye forever. If you are looking for workshops
that take you to the field and keep you busy making images, we will take you to some of North America's most
inspirational locations for the highest quality, one-on-one, in-the-field photographic
If the group size requires name tags to
remember individuals, the group is too large.
We believe the small group size we maintain -- usually never greater than eight
participants per instructor -- allows us to offer some of the most
individualized instruction available. You will be part of a small focused
group that spends most of its time in the field learning to make better
photographs. (see Typical
Workshop for additional discussion).
