Surrounded by Nature Photographic workshop and camping weekend

I am hosting, along with Singing Lands ranch and retreat ( ) and Asad Masede, a photographic workshop camping weekend.


This is a weekend camping photographic workshop August 24,25,26, lead by Professional Photographer Wendy D, at the incredible Singing Lands Ranch and Retreat ( just west of Kamloops. Meadows, rolling hills, forests, water fall, lakes and natural light will be your subjects for this weekend of “no gadgets” photography. Just you, your camera (well maybe a tripod too), your eyes and a desire to “see”, oh yes and camping gear. Wendy D along with fellow photographer Asad Masede will provide presentations, exercises, technical support, and one on one guidance throughout the weekend. They will be covering subjects such as, Seeing your surroundings, macro photography, getting the correct exposure, composition, nighttime photography (with no city lights!).


We will not be downloading, processing or reviewing images on site… cool… you are there to explore and photograph. We will be sharing photos with each other when we get back. The learning never stops!

The workshop will be limited to 12 people, to ensure everyone gets quality one on one time. Some knowledge of DSLR’s and photography helpful but a desire to explore more required.
