On our Central Coast California Photography Workshop – Morro Bay and beyond, we will help you explore photographically the beautiful beaches, and coastline of the Central Coast.
We will be exploring Morro Bay, Cambria and San Simeon and a short way up the Big Sur Coast. This area is filled with hidden gems and secret places. If you enjoy photographing picturesque harbors, colorful sunsets, hidden beaches, tide pools, and wildlife, this is the workshop for you! _____
Join us for 3 days in January of 2018 as we photographically explore Morro Bay,
Cambria and San Simeon and the Southern area of the Big Sur Coast.
From the beaches and hills of Cambria to the gateway to Big Sur, this getaway will give you a taste of this area of the central coast. Our workshop will be based out of beautiful Cambria, CA. We will give you recommendations on where to stay once you sign up.
A maximum group size of 6 photographers ensures you will receive generous personal photographic coaching in the field from 2 full time working pros, providing a small group adventure experience.
In this 3-day workshop, we will work closely with you on your photography skills. We will have the opportunity to shoot landscapes, wildlife, macro photography and more. We will provide image critique and Lightroom coaching as needed in the evenings. …Or this workshop can be your own personal exploration – we can be there as you need us.
A Chance to Explore Many Types of Photography
In this workshop, we will be concentrating on landscape photography skills for the hours of the warm morning and afternoon light. We will also have the opportunity to shoot wildlife, as the elephant seal colony in the area is very active. Very often we also spot whales, dolphin, sea otters, and zebra. Zebra? Yes, Zebra!
