A Night Photography MasterClass Itinerary

~Sierra Nights~

A 5 Night, 6 Day adventure Along the Eastern Sierra Mountains, Lakes and Valleys. By Day and By Night

The Cauldron.JPG


The Eastern Sierras is certainly no hidden gem. I mean how could you keep such majesty a secret? This area has long been photographed, explored and recreated in. Master painters like Albert Beirdstadt or Thomas Hill were creating paintings deep in its wilderness more than a century ago and it still beckons artists from all over the world. Ansel Adams truly put this place on the map during his day and you'll find his work in almost every shop or cafe in the small towns surrounding these epic mountains. Join Jessica Santos and myself for a Night photography Masterclass, exploring our favorite locations by day and by night! From martian like sand formations to giant, snow capped mountains, gardens of cacti and fields of boulders reminiscent of the ancient skeletons of fallen giants, there is no shortage of amazing things to photograph! Your mind can truly run wild here!
