Oregon Local Tours
June 7 – 13, 2021
with Zack Schnepf and Christian Heeb
The State of Oregon has some of America's most photogenic and beautiful coastlines. The sea stack studded southern coast, with its secluded coves and sheer endless empty beaches is a photographers dream come true. We explore some of the most intriguing corners on this week long immersion into nature photography.
A maximum of 6 participants can join us on this outing. We will take time composing and photographing sea stacks, spring flowers, evergreen Redwood forests, Lighthouses and hidden coves as well as the Oregon sand dunes, the small fishing towns and harbors and set our cameras on the night sky when the weather allows.
Since this tour is geared to photography we will adjust the itinerary to give us the best photography opportunities. The conditions dictate the program.
As of now we expect to be eating take out and social distancing may be needed. We will adjust accordingly if conditions improve.
We do evening and morning photo sessions. Then go back to our hotel for breakfast before checking out and move to the next location. Weather permitting we stop and photograph scenic locations on the way to our next stay.
