WHY LEARN LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY WITH US?
There are 59 National Parks and 19 National Preserves in the US as well as many large land mass monuments.

ALUMNI WORK FROM OUR LATEST EXPEDITIONS
Take a look at these extraordinary photos from our alumni on previous workshop expeditions.
I have attended several different photography workshops by a variety of photographers. The absolute best by far that I’ve ever attended are workshops lead by Bob Killen. This intense, five-day adventure not only expanded my mind for the technical aspects of photography but also for improved artistic expression. What I learned in this class isn’t something you can get from books or videos.
Bob is very dedicated to giving us the best experience possible. He gets to know each of his students so he can help guide us to our goals of becoming better artists. I always leave very satisfied with what I’ve learned but then again, wanting more! I can’t wait to join his next workshop!
I can’t think of a thing to improve other than I believe we need to clone Bob so more people can learn from him. He’s one of a kind.Lynn Ballard
This is the first course that I was not merely chaperoned from place to place by the instructor. Bob Killen taught us how to compose and frame landscape photographs. Bob emphasized to photograph landscape from our point of view, our composition. Not only that, we held classroom style sessions after each day, where we learned Photoshop techniques, as it applies to landscape with the photographer’s point of view.
I appreciated his insight and the lessons. What Bob did, is to teach us to produce photographs that showed landscape, as we wanted the viewer to see.
As a matter of fact, I am still learning long-distance with Bob Killen.Ramiro Estenssoro
I thoroughly enjoyed the class in Sequoia National Park. The amount of effort that has gone in to working out all the details of the trip were evident throughout the adventure. Bob Killen has scouted some fantastic locations to demonstrate various techniques and styles of landscape photography. Careful thought was given to selecting comfortable accommodations that could also support productive post-processing sessions. I learned much from both Bob and my photographers. I am looking forward to joining another expedition soon.Steve Ripple
