We will explore the areas around Bishop, CA and points north to find just the right mix of beautiful granite cliffs and dynamic fall colors. We will be visiting many of the canyons around the Bishop area, and travel north to higher elevations for more spectacular scenery.

Mono Lake, as we travel further north offers its calcified Tufa towers. These characteristically rutted towers reach skyward from its brine waters in this otherworldly landscape. We will be spending an evening sunset and morning sunrise in this spectacular location.

As we explore further north during our Eastern Sierras fall photography workshop, you’ll witness golden aspens reaching high from the valley floor to the white granite mountains rising to 14,000 feet. These vistas provide amazing contrasts to beautiful streams as they flow from these high peaks.

All of this and much more makes this guided photography workshop a unique and special experience.


Eastern Sierra Fall Photography Workshop Itinerary

Thursday, October 5, 6pm:
We will meet in Bishop, CA for orientation which will include a general overview of the workshop. What do you want to focus on for the workshop? Do you want to photographically tel the story of the trip, do you want to shoot black and white, do you want to work with shadows or master HDR? We will help you to decide where you want to go with your creativity on this workshop.

Friday, Oct. 6: We will get up early and begin to explore the canyon areas, the granite formations and the fall colors. (Fall color will vary depending on elevation and we will be traveling in a variety of areas to photography the best available.)  You will learn from two master photographers the skills on how you can come away with prize shots of the Eastern Sierra.

Saturday, Oct. 7: We will meet for breakfast in Lee Vining and head up the canyons to shoot the amazing fall colors.

That evening, we will head back to Lee Vining to shoot the sunset at Mono Lake where we hope to experience the incredible “raspberry sky” of the Eastern Sierras. We will instruct you on the use of light and exposure at sunset as well as the use of silhouettes and shadows. Immediately after the sunset, we will be conducting an image review and photo critique from the workshop at dinner, helping you to understand how to improve your photography skills with recommendations for composition and exposure, as well as discussions on Lightroom and Photoshop adjustments.

Sunday, Oct. 8: We will get up for the sunrise and shoot at Mono Lake’s South Tufa. After, we will have breakfast in Lee Vining. The remainder of the morning will be spent shooting the aspen covered mountains and flowing water near Lee Vining. Workshop concludes late morning on Sunday.
