Glacier National Park
August 6-11, 2019 SOLD OUT September 8-13, 2020
Summary: The US National Park Service calls Glacier National Park the Crown of the Continent. Perhaps they should say ‘the Top of the World,’ because there’s something to be said about climbing high enough to actually see as far as the eye can see.
This a land of sheer beauty and each photographic location is jaw-dropping from every angle. The Glacier Master Class Workshop will immerse yourself in over 1 million acres of towering, jagged peaks, cascading waterfalls, wild meadows, and sparkling waters. The raw splendor of glacial-carved terrain is unlike any other place on earth; and when you photograph that kind of vastness in Glacier National Park, it’s not something you’ll soon—or ever—forget.
In this Landscape Master Class, you will pursue a theme which is to capture Glacier Vastness and trace the ice recession path. Our visual studies will capture the Glacier Landscape with dramatic dawns along the Going to the Sun Highway and use our cameras and post-production tools to create compositions in the remote North Fork area. You will learn specific exposure concepts and advanced art compositions to lift your images from documentary to narration as you work with selected locations in the meadows of Saint Mary’s Valley, and explore the extraordinary blue hour light over Swiftcurrent Lake and Grinnell Point. Short hikes position our Master Class photographers to explore vast rarely captured vistas natural ice sculptures of receding glaciers. We will spend time juxtaposing plane and ground across waves of yellow glacier lilies pushing up through the snow with a mix of wildlife visitors, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, and the occasional grizzly bear.
When you leave for home, you will leave inspired, energized, and prepared to relive your Master Class as you complete your post-production work.
