Sea stacks, hidden coves and lighthouses of Oregon’s south coast
Local professional photographer Zack Schnepf will guide the group of 8 inspired photographers to scenic locations along the spectacular coastline.
The coast is at its most dramatic during changing weather so be prepared to meet mother nature on this workshop. Zack knows the area intimately. Nature photography is all about reading light and adjusting to conditions. We will adjust the program to give you the best opportunities for photos. We may do astro, night sky photography and light painting if conditions are favorable. We will switch locations and subjects at will. Dining will be scheduled around the best photo times. Sometimes takeout will be our only option.
