Pursuit Series: Bear Valley, CA

August 10-12, 2018


I'm excited to announce I will be a photography instructor at The Outbound Collective, Pursuit Series this year.  The second event will be held in Bear Valley, California, the weekend of August 10-12, 2018.  With over 1,600 acres of trails, lakes, rocks, and meadows at your fingertips, you'll quickly realize why the Sierra Nevada mountains are a true multi-sport mecca. You'll find this amazing location conveniently located between Lake Tahoe and Yosemite, and an easy drive from anywhere in the Bay Area. The Pursuit Series is an all inclusive weekend full of great outdoor workshops lead by expert instructors. All meals, nightly open bars, live musicguided activities and field sessions are all included.  I will be leading a series of landscape photography workshops throughout the weekend which includes a introduction to night time photography.  I am very excited about this workshop because Bear Valley is like a second home to me.  I use to spend nine weeks every summer working at a Boy Scout Camp less than 10 minutes down the road from Bear Valley.  As a result I know all of the best locations to take amazing photographs.  This area of Northern California really is a hidden gem and I hope to see you there!!!

Mount DanaMount DanaThe Dana Fork Overlook has an outstanding eastern facing view, making this an ideal location to photograph the sun rising behind this section of the Sierra Mountains or capture the beautiful alpenglow on the mountains as the sun sets (click here for some photography). With some of the best unobstructed views of Mount Dana and Mount Gibbs to the East and Mammoth Peak to the Southeast, Dana Fork Overlook offers photographers the chance to glimpse some of the stunning scenery of Yosemite. The Dana Fork also meanders and snakes through a beautiful sub alpine meadow; it offers photographers a lot to work with in the foreground including some amazing “S” curves (click here for composition tips). The sub alpine meadow also makes a great home for some of the park’s wildlife and offers the chance for photographers to capture these animals in their natural habitat. As easy as this location is to get to plus the sheer beauty of the views, one would think this would be a very popular spot in Yosemite National Park, but every time I have been there, I have always had the view to myself.
