Olympic Peninsula Workshop — 2019
Top Photograph -- Barnbaum - Forest Geometry, Marymere Fall Trail, Olympic Rainforest
Jagged, glacier-studded Olympic Mountain peaks, moss-draped rainforests of Douglas fir, Sitka Spruce, Western Red cedar, Western Hemlock, big-leaf maples, silvery alders and more (all growing out of a thick carpet of spongy ground mosses and ferns), cascading streams, waterfalls, rugged Pacific Ocean beachfronts, and even a century-and-a-half old military fortress…the Olympic Peninsula has it all, and then some. This is a location rich in scenery and rich in history. Each of these locations offers a lifetime worth of photography.
Three outstanding photographers and instructors—Jack Dykinga, Bill Ellzey and Bruce Barnbaum—present the Olympic Peninsula workshops…here, in the far northwest corner of the contiguous 48 states of the USA. It can’t get any better than this!
In addition they will be showing some of their work, inviting any and all questions about their thinking, their approach and workflow, their materials, and anything else you may wish to know. They have no secrets, and are eager to share their vast store of photographic expertise throughout the workshop. Whether you are engaging in digital approaches or traditional approaches, you will have the answers to your questions from these guys.
The workshop begins in the town of Port Angeles on the North side of the peninsula, where we will have spectacular views of the entire Olympic Mountain range from Hurricane Ridge. We also have quick access to Crescent Lake, the magnificent cedar, Douglas fir, Sitka spruce and maple forests in the northern portions of the park, and even Fort Worden, the 19th century military installation, and a photographic paradise with outstanding opportunities.
Midway through the workshop, we move to the town of Forks on the west side of the peninsula, where we have access to the heart of the dramatic rainforests, and the windswept Pacific Coast, including some of the most spectacular west coast beaches. Fog and sun often alternate throughout the day, making these forests and beaches even more mysterious and magnificent, a never-ending kaleidoscope of light and wonder.
Accommodations have already been secured in motels in Port Angeles for the first half of the workshop, and in Forks for the second half. Once you sign up for the workshop, you'll simply be asked for your room preference—either a single or shared room—and your accommodations are taken care of. (Should you wish to camp, just let the workshop know, and we can accommodate that, as well.)
If you have specific questions, please phone Bruce Barnbaum directly at (360) 691-4105 or send him an email at email@example.com.
