The Mighty San Juan Mountains of Colorado – Summer Wildflowers & Landscapes
Ouray, Colorado • July 19 - 22, 2012 • Tuition: $895
Workshop Leaders: Todd Caudle and Jerry Greer
An endless ocean of peaks, pinnacles, flowery meadows and magnificent cascading streams, the San Juan Range contains more land above 10,000 feet than any other mountain range in the continental United States. Incredible wilderness areas abound here – The Weminuche, South San Juan, Mount Sneffels, La Garita, Uncompahgre, Lizard Head, and Powderhorn. Several sub-ranges rise to the sky here as well, including the Needle and West Needle Mountains, the San Miguels, Sheffels and Grenadier Ranges, to name a few. The mighty San Juans offer endless opportunities for the discerning photographer to capture stunning images.
Thanks to the San Juan Mountains' rich mining history, a network of old mining routes criss-cross the region, making access to some of the best photographic locations a simple matter of knowing where all the best places are. Legendary locations such as Yankee Boy Basin, American Basin, Stoney Pass and Porphyry Basin are just a few of the many locations that assue the nature photographer the full-on "Colorado Wildflower Experience"!
Join Jerry and Todd for an intensive creative experience, while photographing in some of their favorite places. Learn to look beyond the superficial aspects of photographing nature to gain a deeper connection with the natural landscape and its inhabitants.
This workshop is perfect for the people who already have a basic understanding of digital cameras and want to take their photography to the next level. During the field and evening sessions Jerry and Todd will be instructing on the basis of “controlling the technical aspect of nature photography, concentrating energies, and driving personal vision”. Our group size will be limited to only 10 participants.
Participants are responsible for transportation during the workshop, local accommodations, and meals. Carpooling for field sessions is encouraged. Once registered for the workshop, lodging information will be emailed so that final arrangements can be secured.
Getting to these wonderful locations can be strenuous and will require sturdy hiking shoes or boots. Water-shoes and/or sport sandals are a must for getting those wonderful “frame-filling” cascading stream photos made famous in the San Juans.
The workshop will begin at 3:00pm on Thursday, and end Sunday at 3:00pm. Participants requiring air transportation, Montrose Regional Airport (MTJ) in Montrose, CO is the closest and is approximately 50 minutes from Ouray.
