IMG_2658.jpg

Mission

Since first offering this workshop in 2017 I have returned each year to behold, to capture, and to share with others the incredible ancient Redwood forests and the rugged Oregon Coast. Each year I have revised this trip to try and improve it in order to maximize time spent in the field and in the classroom rather than endless driving from location to location. The southern tip of Oregon yields the entirety of the coastal offerings into one, 50 mile stretch of shoreline. And believe me, youre going to see it! You'll spend time peering over the edge of sea cliffs, strolling through fields of rolling hills and wild flowers and being humbled by the massive, otherworldly Redwood groves.
