The retreat begins at 1pm on Thursday with a meet and greet, and then an introductory lecture. The afternoon is spent in the field shooting nature and wildlife, then shooting the landscape at sunset from a mountain.

Friday morning, we begin before first light. We arrive inside the park to shoot the fog and mystical light of early morning. We continue to shoot the landscape as well as wildlife and macro subjects until lunch. Following lunch, Paul will curate your photos into an inspirational session of classroom education and post-production technique. After siesta for lunch and lecture, we head back into the field to practice freshly learned photographic skills. The day concludes after sunset.

On Saturday we shoot one final sunrise, and we hone our new skills in the field until late morning. At lunch there is an image sharing where participants share their strongest images from the experience and receive constructive feedback. We will conclude our time of work and play over a slow lunch. You won't want to miss this experience!
