Chasing Central Oklahoma Light

Experiencing the beautiful light dance across the Oklahoma plains is incredible, whether it's sun rays, atmospheric glow, or lightning bolts!  Join me September 5th-8th as we chase Central Oklahoma's magical vibes down the state.

This 4 Day - 3 Night Adventure Photography Workshop will focus on capturing sunset to sunrise, and everything in between.  You will learn the best settings for shooting anytime of the day, from twilight, golden hour, sunrise, sunset, blue hour, the Milky Way, and even some wildlife. 

I have chosen the dark sky week in September so we can play all day (and night) learning about the celestial objects in the night skies and watching the warm sun rise and set on the endless horizon.  You will be guided through the Sooner State's best kept secrets and hidden gems at all the perfect times.

We will explore a different area of the state every day including the Salt Plains Wildlife Refuge, Gloss Mountain State Park, and Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, giving you ample opportunities to come away with many great images in over 30+ hours of onsite shooting time. Using advanced photography techniques you will also learn to capture stunning and unique compositions. This all-immersive workshop also includes 6 hours of classroom setting editing courses so you can fine tune your style and create a cohesive gallery of your trip.
