After a brief "get acquainted" session at our first meeting location we will caravan (guests are expected to drive their own vehicles) to our favorite and often secret shooting locations that we have discovered after exploring the area for the past 12 years. As award-winning Nature photographers Chris & Bonnie provide unique hands-on instruction in composition, lighting, exposure, focus and other creative and technical aspects of photography to help you make images with more impact and emotional appeal. The experience will include meditative / reflective time under Chris & Bonnie's guidance as 30+ year meditation practitioners. The experience will expand your self-awareness and connection to the natural world, enhancing your ability to capture that connection in your photos. Some guests find the experience to be a transformative one, releasing them from attachment to the concerns and responsibilities of their everyday life. And you will have gained new skills in seeing beyond the ordinary and capturing a more soulful expression of Nature through your lens.
