You will do this!

  • 2-3 hour nature photo walk through distinct areas of the property's diverse landscape

  • Small group of max. 10-12 participants

  • Open to various experience levels and interests

  • Learn to look at nature differently and make creative and distinctive photos

  • Bring your own brown bag lunch to enjoy afterwards on the property, if you wish. 

After a short introduction from the landowner, we will start the inspiring nature photo walk. During the walk your guide Zach will give you tips on how to take more creative and distinctive photos than the ones you normally take. You learn how to look at your surroundings more consciously with the help of practical, pleasant photography techniques. Some focus points that you will work with are: light, colors, shapes, angles, depth of field and composition. We often stand still and you get every opportunity to take those beautiful pictures.

You do not need expensive camera equipment for this walk, as long as you take something along which makes pictures. However, if you have a digital camera with interchangeable lenses, try to limit yourself to one lens. A walk in nature with a light backpack has a relaxing effect and has a positive influence on your creativity and concentration.
