White Boulders and Forest, Dawn
Anne Larsen and John Sexton
By popular demand we are pleased to offer this extremely popular workshop for the 13th time! The Mono Basin and Eastern Sierra have some of the most exciting photographic opportunities imaginable. Late autumn light will add to the magic and wonder of this area. This field workshop will allow you to explore the spectacular photographic possibilities of this amazing landscape under the leadership of two skilled and talented photographers, Anne Larsen and John Sexton, and is open to dedicated photographers working with either traditional or digital tools. The most important thing is to arrive with an open mind and a desire to work hard at improving your photography.
The group will be visiting a number of exciting locations to explore during the workshop. We will be photographing late and early light on the unique tufa formations on multiple field sessions at Mono Lake, as well as exploring nearby beautiful Sierra canyons and the spectacular Yosemite high country. Sexton and Larsen will be available to assist participants in the field and will be offering indoor instruction sessions. We will utilize a large, comfortable classroom facility in Lee Vining, just a few hundred yards from the shore of Mono Lake, and within walking distance of our motel. Along with instructor presentations and demonstrations, an important aspect of the workshop will be constructive portfolio reviews of prints that participants bring to the workshop. It will be a time of great scenery, photography, and camaraderie.
Included in the workshop fee will be a special dinner the final night of the workshop, as well as two lunches in the field, along with a 100+ page handout booklet prepared by John. Lodging, additional meals, and transportation costs are the responsibility of each participant. This workshop is limited to ten people, and no guests are allowed. Early enrollment is advised. The workshop begins on Sunday morning, and ends late Friday evening. Participation in the full workshop is required.
Fee: $1,995 (Includes all park entrance and permit fees)
Here are some unsolicited comments, used with permission, from participants on our 2022 Mono Lake and the Eastern Sierra: Exploring Autumn Light Workshop.
Anne and John,
With regards to the workshop I do not have the words to comment as to how wonderful it was both in knowledge gained and the friendship of the group during the seven days! Seriously, much thanks to you both!!!!
I told my wife before the workshop I never felt like I was 74 years old. When I returned home I felt like I was 90 years old from all the hiking, carrying equipment, and lack of sleep. Good news –I have recovered, and feel young again and ready for another adventure!!!!
Thanks John and Anne for having us! I personally had a blast and have
COVID SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
We may also institute additional measures to ensure everyone's safety, including negative COVID tests, masks while indoors, avoiding carpools (meaning everyone will have to drive their own vehicle to field sessions), and other requirements. We will continue to monitor the COVID situation - paying particular attention to Mono County. If we feel the workshop cannot be operated safely then we may be forced to cancel the workshop.
If that is the case, you will receive a full refund of all fees paid. Please understand that our plan, and strong desire, is to offer the workshop as scheduled. However, we always put your safety–and the safety of all involved with the workshop–above any photographic or workshop experiences.
