About the Workshop
Learn how to photograph waterfalls from one of the best places on earth to do it from. We'll hike to 9 waterfalls (4 of which you can walk behind). Spring is the perfect time to visit Silver Falls State Park as all the waterfalls flowing with the spring runoff. Springtime is also a great time to photograph nature's beauty with all the wonderful flora and fauna.
We'll be shooting from an unique and special location.
There will be hiking involved (5.3 miles total). There are hills and there are steps involved.
Poor weather conditions will postpone this workshop.
