Join me for 3 days in the Aspen & Snow-mass wilderness areas where we will photograph endless Autumn scenes!
We will have a chance for snow, and moody weather to add an entirely new level of drama to the beauty of the yellow Aspens, craggy mountains and grand vistas!
This Workshop will be limited to 5, eager explorers.
We will spend a majority of our time around Aspen, capturing the classic sunrise view at the Maroon Bells, and once the sun has risen we will focus on intimate scenes in the dense Aspen groves nearby!
Independence pass, and Twin lakes area will be part of the tour as well! Theres will certainly be no shortage of photographic opportunities!
On each excursion we will capture sunrises, sunsets and if weather cooperates moody midday images! The fall in the rockies is special, with a great chance for atmosphere which can allow for shooting conditions all day long! We can even capture some stars!
The itinerary for the first Adventure will begin on:
Thursday September 20th, with a meet and greet at 4pm (4pm) near Downtown Aspen, we will cover our lesson plan, and potential locations including weather forecasts etc, there will be some impromptu weather chasing to ensure everyone gets the best possible chance at dramatic, beautiful images! Once the sun has set we will capture the stars until the wary want to turn in!
We will reconvene on Friday morning very early for sunrise at the iconic Maroon Bells! The early bird gets the worm and in the case of Maroon bells, the best spot! The nearby Aspen groves provide excellent and abundant opportunities for unique, abstract and intimate scenes!
A break for lunch and a processing session near downtown and reconvene for sunset! Independence Pass will likely be the target!
Saturday will follow a similar itinerary starting with a sunrise, mid morning shooting if weather allows, and break for lunch and processing session! Followed by another golden sunset!
Sunday morning sunrise, a processing session and bittersweet goodbyes. Expect to wrap up around 2pm Sunday for those that have travel plans!
