ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

The first time I arrived in Cannon Beach, Oregon, my mind was blown away. It is simply one of the most beautiful spots in the Pacific Northwest, and I'm really looking forward to conducting a workshop here in 2020! With stunning coastlines, waterfalls, dark skies, wildlife, shipwrecks and amazing sunsets this makes for one amazing place to photography day or night.

 A few years ago, I became the first person to capture bioluminescent plankton glowing around Haystack Rock with the Milky Way. Not only could I see it in the waves, but also in the pools and on the sand. My footsteps would glow blue along the water's edge and when I wanted to warm up my feet I would just walk over to my beach fire for a little bit. I can't say that the conditions will be the same, but there is only one way to find out. We will photograph many places including Haystack Rock, Ecola State Park, Hug Point and Cape of Arches during sunrise, sunset and at night with the Milky Way. This workshop also includes a beach fire at sunset at Haystack Rock. We will spend time in the tide pools along the beach searching for star fish and other sea life / wildlife. Eagles and Puffins are often seen here as well.

TRAVELING

I would suggest flying into Portland, Oregon where you will have about a 1hr 35 minute drive to the coast. You could also fly into Seattle. Seattle is a longer drive, but you could see a bunch of neat sights along the way down, including the stunning Mount. Rainier! This workshop does not include travel to, from and during the workshop, meals or overnight accommodations.
