Thursday Evening Sunset Shot and Meet and Greet
What do you want to focus on for the workshop? Do you want to focus on telling the story of the trip, do you want to shoot black and white, do you want to work with shadows or learn to layer your images? We will help you to decide where you want to go with your creativity in this workshop.
7 am (Friday) – We will continue our photographic exploration of the Big Sur Coast, chasing the light as the sun rises up the coast and capture a spectacular morning vista of a unique lighthouse. After the sun rises, we will then travel to several coastal overlooks for some amazing shots of water clashing with sea stacks
We will break late morning and you will be able to return to your accommodations in the Big Sur area.
After our break, we will regroup in the town of Big Sur and caravan to another beach location for an amazing sunset with sea stacks and a coastal waterfall. We will review techniques in exposure adjustments to capture the setting sun on the shoreline as the waves crash over the rocks.
After our sunset shoot, we will gather for dinner for image review to show your best work from the last few days. Recommendations for composition, exposure, and use of software editing programs will be discussed.
7:00 am – Saturday
We will meet in the lobby at your hotel and caravan to several more spectacular coastal views to take advantage of the morning light.
We will be shooting in an amazing redwood forest during this workshop to capture long exposure photography by the stream coming off the mountains.
7:00 am – Sunday
This morning we will drive to one of the most amazing clashes of sea and stone you will witness in this region. This rocky shore sends waves high into the air which is a very spectacular sight!
This workshop will conclude mid-morning on Sunday. You then have the option to continue north to Monterey about 20 minutes and continue your photographic journey on your own.

Transportation and Lodging
You are responsible to arrive for the workshop orientation in Big Sur, CA. We will caravan our cars along the coast during the workshop. Routes may be altered due to road conditions and weather along the Big Sur Coast.
Our private groups enjoy eating most meals together, but you are free to dine where you wish. During the workshop, either bring or purchase food for your midday meal and arrange breakfast before leaving your hotel. Many mornings we will be leaving before most restaurants are open.
