Colorado Wildflowers and Alpine Scenery

The Colorado high country is unrivaled for its spectacular beauty. Add in fields of columbine, lupine, paintbrush, mules ears, scarlet gilia, and many other species of colorful flora, and the sound of shutters will echo off the high peaks as you capture gigabyte after gigabyte of information. The focus of the tour will be the wildflowers but we'll also capture images of aspen groves, high mountain peaks, ghost towns, alpine lakes, pristine rivers, wildlife and many other subjects that appear in front of our lenses.

Besides capturing images of the spectacular Colorado scenery, image optimization and critique sessions will be held if time permits. Everyone will get together and be given hints on how to improve composition, lighting, and the technical aspects of their digital captures. You'll also be shown how to improve your captures using Photoshop, Adobe Camera RAW, and Nik software. These sessions are totally dependent upon how much time is dedicated to staying in the field.

Russ will bring you to the Crested Butte area in addition to the most spectacular locations in the San Juan Mountains. We'll traverse the four wheel drive "roads" of southwest Colorado to get to some of the most gorgeous scenery you'll ever see and photograph. In the field you'll learn how to develop the skills needed to make photographs that portray the beauty of the places we'll visit. The workshop is limited to 4 participants so everyone will get individual attention and not get in each other's way. I invite you to join me for a week of photography, friendship and fun in the Colorado high country. Many dramatic four wheel drive roads will be traversed so if you sign up, you need to be prepared for bumpy and rocky roads. If you're faint of heart, this tour may not be for you. The option of sitting out the most rugged sessions is an option.

Cost: $2,149.00 + $399.00 for single supplement (Price subject to gasoline surcharge if necessary). Price includes lodging based on double occupancy, ground transportation from the point of origin, entrance fees into parks while on the tour, photographic instruction, and knowledge and expertise of each location.
