Majestic Redwoods Photography Retreat 2021

May 24 - May 27

| $3950.00

Event Navigation

Northern California’s coastal redwoods of are some of the most stately and serene trees on the planet. Walking through these magnificent ancient forests will make all your senses come alive and inspire you to take your photography to the next level.

May is the best time of year to capture the fog as it rolls inland and sunlight streams through the branches and leaves trails in the mist. It is also a great time of year to photograph the rhododendron flowers that bloom in and around the trees. Few places spark the imagination like the giant redwoods.

The Northern California coast is more than redwood groves though. Rugged, towering cliffs plunge into the ocean below for much of the coastline. Offering a variety of photographic opportunities.

With guidance and challenges from Art followed by critiques to cap the day, there is no doubt that you’ll come way from this retreat improved as a creative photographer, and hopefully with new like-minded friends as well!
