Palouse Photography Tour & Workshop: June 28-30, 2019

600.00

UPDATE!

I have now added two nights lodging to the included price! We will be staying two nights in the heart of the Palouse area outside of Colfax, WA. Accommodations are on a property that many photographers visit just for photos of the barn! I am so excited for this addition to the workshop!

In addition, if participants want to join me a day early I’ll be starting at Palouse Falls or thereabouts on Thursday, camping that night before we get to the ranch house! Just sign up and ask for details!

I am pleased to offer a 3-day, 2-night photography tour and workshop in the Palouse region of Eastern Washington (option of one additional day and night at no extra charge)!

A visit to the Palouse region of Eastern Washington is a visually stunning experience. Rural scenes here include rolling hills, vast skies, iconic barns, abandoned farmhouses, rusting vehicles, windmills, and colorful textured fields of wheat, canola, and other crops. Photographers from around the world visit to experience this unique landscape.

Workshop participants will visit Palouse Falls and Steptoe Butte, two of the most iconic locations on the Palouse. And we’ll visit many other locations along the way. I will be your tour guide and your photography instructor. My goals will be to, first, make sure we are in the right place with the right light, and second, help you to come away with images that you love! We will work hands on with your own equipment to help you gain mastery of composition and camera techniques. The workshop will be beneficial to beginners or experts and I’ll tailor my instruction to your personal needs. Personally, I still attend photo tours and workshops, not for specific camera instruction but for access to locations I’ve never been before and to spend time with other like-minded photographers. Whether instructing or attending, I always learn something new by watching how other photographers “see” the world around them.

This tour now includes two nights lodging! It does not include transportation (though I have a few seats available in my truck) or food. However we will work as a group to coordinate those in the weeks leading up to the workshop. Participants are encouraged to team up for ride sharing.

We will only be doing a limited amount of walking/hiking on this trip as most scenes are visible from the roadside and we will NOT be walking through crops. Palouse falls does offer some rugged terrain so each participant will need to manage their own comfort level with the proximity to the cliffs vs. the fenced viewing platforms.

Tour Includes:

  • Guided tour to Palouse Falls, Steptoe Butte, and various other sites around the Palouse as dictated by weather and shooting conditions.

  • Probably one evening of astro photography depending on sky conditions and participant interest.

  • One on one instruction with me.

  • 1 post processing / photos sharing session to illustrate my workflow and editing and where you can share and receive feedback on a few of your images

What to Bring:

  • Camera kit including long lens (200 - 600mm are very helpful up on the butte), medium length lens, wide lens, tripod, circular polarized filter, and plenty of batteries and memory.

  • Camping gear for up to one night camping at Palouse Falls or elsewhere.

  • Funds for food and hotel

  • Snacks

What to Expect:

We will be chasing light. As such we’ll be up early for sunrise and we’ll stay up late for sunset. During the brightest parts of the day we’ll rest, eat, share photos, edit, etc. We will probably attempt one night of astro photography. Because we’ll be there in late June we’ll have a variety of conditions. It’s possible that some of the winter wheat will already be turning gold. Count on bright sunshine, wind, dust, clouds, a possible storm or two, and a very dynamic experience.

Fine Print and Legal Stuff:

The cost of the workshop is $600. Normally I would collect a non-refundable deposit first, but we are very close to the workshop date. As such, $200 of the total cost is considered a non-refundable deposit. If you need to cancel, please let me know.

Attendance is at your own risk. You agree to hold Jake Egbert and Jake Egbert Photography harmless for any personal injury or loss that may occur during or in connection with the workshop. You are responsible for your own safety, and for your own equipment including vehicles that you may bring along on the trip. You should be aware of your own physical limitations and make sure not to exceed your own capabilities or endurance.

Travel insurance and equipment insurance are recommended. There are few rogue waves roaming the Palouse… but you never know.

I make no effort to vet attendees, so use caution when interacting with other workshop attendees. While I expect only the finest of human beings to attend my workshops and events there is no guarantee.

In the event of circumstances beyond our control (illness, weather, government shutdown, etc.) I reserve the right to cancel the trip and refund all workshop fees.
