This is an approximate outline of our Workshop plans but is always dependent on weather or any other unforeseen circumstance. Our goal each day will be to get to the locations that best match conditions. We'll stay flexible. 

Day 1:  JUNE 3   Workshop starts

We will meet at 2pm in the lobby of our hotel in Bandon, Oregon

We’ll gather to introduce ourselves, give an overview of the Workshop and discuss in more detail some of the locations we’ll be exploring and photographing, communicate start times for sunrise/morning shoots and sunset/blue hour. We'll conclude with a Q&A. We'll then get settled in our hotel rooms before heading out for an evening shoot. A group dinner will follow.

Weather and light will dictate our exact itinerary each day.

Day 2:  Sunrise at Coquille River Lighthouse, crashing surf at Shore Acres, sunset Bandon Beach, group dinner in Bandon

Day 3:  Sunrise shoot at Cape Blanco lighthouse, we'll move south to Brookings, Oregon with numerous stops at Pistol River and through the Sam Boardman Scenic Corridor, sunset at Secret Beach, group dinner in Brookings

Day 4:  We will rise early for the drive to the redwood groves of Jedidiah Smith and Del Notre where we’ll spend the day among the blooming rhododendrons and giant trees, return to Brookings and group dinner

Day 5:  Sunrise shoot at Harris Beach, group breakfast and group slideshow, Workshop ends


What About Weather

If it’s raining, we’ll be out shooting. If it’s windy and stormy, we’ll be out shooting. Dramatic weather often makes for dramatic images. The only time we will not be out shooting is if it is determined that conditions are unsafe or considered by Bob or Jason to be un-shootable. Participants, of course, will always be free to remain in their hotel room to rest or edit images.
