Grand Tetons Photo Workshop

Moulton Barn, Mormon Row, Jackson Hole, Wyoming

(C) Nat Coalson

Bret Edge and I are leading another workshop together, this one in Wyoming June 10-13, 2010. Grand Tetons and Yellowstone in the springtime… oh my!

We’ll shoot at all the iconic spots around Jackson Hole, including the Snake River Overlook made famous by Ansel Adams, plus some very out of the way, special places known only to a few. Bret and I have photographed around Jackson Hole on many occasions and can guide you to the best locations.

And you’ll learn all the best workflows for processing your photos in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop!

Thursday June 10 – our group will meet in the early afternoon in Jackson. After a brief introduction we’ll spend the rest of the afternoon shooting around Jackson Hole.

Friday June 11 – after a sunrise shoot at Schwabacher Landing, we’ll have a short break for personal time. Then we’ll spend a few hours working on processing in Lightroom and Photoshop. Following this, we’ll venture out to shoot all afternoon and through sunset.

Saturday June 12 – essentially the same schedule as Friday, at all kinds of different locations…. Oxbow Bend, Antelope Flats, Mormon Row (pictured), etc.

Sunday June 13 – sunrise shoot; workshop concludes.

We’ll have three sunrise shoots, three sunset shoots and plenty of shooting during each day. We will have the chance to revisit some locations more than once.

We will  have around 8 hours classroom time. It’s also possible that we’ll have a printer on-site for participants to make prints, though this is still TBD.

Private and group critiques will be done throughout the workshop to help you develop your work significantly over the weekend.

We’ll also make sure to have some occasional free time throughout the workshop, for participants to take a break and do their own thing.

(And yes, during the weekend there will be time to visit Yellowstone.)

Bret is handling registration… his web page for our workshop is HERE

I look forward to seeing you there!

In January I’ll be conducting an intensive, one-day Adobe Lightroom workshop at the Lone Tree Civic Center in South Denver, Colorado. We’re tentatively planning for Saturday, January 23rd, 2010. (OMG…. where did 2009 go???)

In this workshop, you will learn:
– an easy-to-adopt, end-to-end workflow using Adobe Lightroom
– navigation tips and techniques for the Lightroom Library, to speed your image editing and asset management
– color correction secrets of the pros, for squeezing the very best photograph out of your digital exposures
– the basics of the Slideshow and Web modules, for streamlined output
– the basics of Photoshop CS4 integration into the Lightroom workflow


Bringing your own laptop computer is highly recommended!

While you can certainly follow along in this workshop without a computer, you will get the most out of it if you are working on your own laptop, hands-on. It is highly recommended that you bring a laptop computer, with a copy of the latest version of Lightroom installed. A free, trial version of Lightroom can be downloaded and used for 30 days, from here.

This workshop is perfect for any serious amateur or professional photographer who wants to get a solid foundation in the basics of Adobe Lightroom, all the way from the Library Module to the Web Module.  If you live in Colorado and want to have a chance to learn Lightroom from one of the original Adobe Lightroom team members and the former Adobe Pro Photography Evangelist, then this workshop is for you.

Reserving your space with me in advance is highly recommended, as space will be limited!

Thanks to the Denver Digital Photo Club

Last night I made a Lightroom presentation to one of the more established photo clubs in the Denver area. It was a blast! Great turnout, lots of good questions and interaction and we all had a good time exploring the advantages of Lightroom in a digital photography workflow.

I brought all the remaining copies of my book that I had; unfortunately several people didn’t get one… I ran out. (You can get them on

Dick York founded Denver Digital Photo Club 6 years ago – a long time in terms of digital photography – and of clubs. They’ve been holding a monthly meeting every month all these years, and it showed… lots’ of camaraderie.

My thanks to Dick and the club members for a warm welcome and a nice evening. Cheers!
