Summary: Mojave National Preserve, one of the newest National Parks and the third largest in the lower 48, is a land of desert wilderness, abandoned mines, and ghostly homesteads. Out here, rain is an episodic event, but solitude and peace abound every day. Climb aboard our 4-wheel drive vehicles, explore a desert wilderness of roads less traveled, and take advantage of the warm fall light. During your two days in the field, you will be capturing images from spots rarely seen by contemporary man and experience a land that is slowly and inexorably retreating into times past. First Horizon classes teach you to see and capture landscapes with creative camera composition techniques that will make an immediate difference in your approach, and you will learn to develop a vision beyond documentation.

Summary: Thunderous ocean breakers crashing against rocky headlands, expansive sand beaches grace the coastline then fold back to open grasslands before lifting higher into the brushy hillsides and forested ridges. Wisps of fog wash up on coastal hills, and Tule elk roam in gold and green meadows. Jutting dramatically out into the blue Pacific, the 70,000-acre Point Reyes National Seashore is home to 1500 plant and animal species with 80 miles of pristine coastline. Point Reyes’ diversity is a perfect location for a National Park Photography Expeditions First Horizons class. The variety of subjects and compositional opportunities present incredible teachable moments for developing landscape photographers. Home to several cultures over thousands of years, the Seashore preserves a tapestry of stories and interactions of people. This 3-day class follows the light and explores Lighthouses, lagoon walks, miles of secluded beaches, historic ranches and ocean skylines. Here, First Horizons Students learn the fundamentals of grand scenic compositions, intimate landscapes, and details. We will grow your composition skills and prepare you for the next steps in landscape art.
