Point Reyes National Seashore
This workshop will take place over the course of a weekend. On Saturday, we’ll spend the day in the classroom where you’ll learn about your DSLR and how to make great nature photos that are not only pleasing to the eye but that also tell a story. Point Reyes is home to one of the greatest environmental stories in the United States and you will learn all about the people who worked to make this natural treasure a park for all to enjoy. You’ll be led by a photographer who also once worked for the NPS to manage the Tule Elk herd that resides in Point Reyes. You will hear stories about the history of the elk and the conservation movement that crossed a country and influenced a presidential campaign.
On Sunday we’ll hop aboard a chartered bus and make our way out to the seashore. So grab your camera and your hiking shoes and get ready to explore one of the most beautiful parks in the National Parks system while putting what you learned in the classroom into action. Pierce Point Ranch is home to an endemic species of Tule Elk as well as home to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. From the NPS: “From its thunderous ocean breakers crashing against rocky headlands and expansive sand beaches to its open grasslands, brushy hillsides, and forested ridges, Point Reyes offers visitors over 1500 species of plants and animals to discover. Home to several cultures over thousands of years, the Seashore preserves a tapestry of stories and interactions of people. Point Reyes awaits your exploration.” This workshop includes a Saturday photography class and a Sunday field excursion complete with RT transportation between San Francisco and Point Reyes along with lunch provided to you in the field on Sunday.
