This five-day workshop is beneficial to photographers of a beginning to advanced intermediate level, developing a solid foundation for beginners and a visual voice for the advanced intermediate artists. With the spectacular winter landscape of Yosemite Valley for inspiration, the instructor will emphasize how to identify potential images, distill the composition to its essential elements and to move beyond a basic documentation into the realm of personal expression.

Students should come prepared for full days as Keith packs a lot into his classes. His proven method of instruction combines brief indoor sessions that are designed to help students to refine their photographic vision, with extended, interactive field sessions.

While each season offers its own special qualities, veteran Yosemite photographers like instructor Keith S. Walklet know that winter conditions add even more beauty to an already spectacular landscape. Contrasted with the cool hues of frost and snow, the fiery light of February is unforgettable. This workshop was scheduled specifically to take advantage of these conditions and the potential to capture one of the park’s most elusive images; Horsetail Fall backlit by the setting sun.

KEITH S. WALKLET lived and worked in Yosemite for 14 years.  Widely published, his credits include Audubon, National Geographic and Sierra Club books.  He is the author and photographer of Yosemite: An Enduring Treasure (2001), and The Ahwahnee: Yosemite’s Grand Hotel (2004) and collaborated with four other photographers to produce, First Light (2009).
