Itinerary- The workshop will be centered in beautiful Bandon, OR and the exact itinerary will be decided depending on weather conditions and the interest of the students.  Steven has extensive experience with photographing every corner of the Oregon coast so will use his local knowledge to help us decide the optimal locations.  Generally we try to photograph sunrise and sunset every day and weather permitting will have two opportunities to capture the Milky Way.  If time allows Brian will be available to discuss post processing in a one on one setting. 

What is included- The price of $795 includes all instruction and guiding to the locations only.   Class size will be limited to 10 students to allow for plenty of one on one time with the two photographer guides.

What is not included-  Lodging, Transportation, meals, drinks any day use or parking passes.  Attendees are welcome to carpool and share rooms if they desire. 

Requirements-  Any level photographer is welcome to attend. We will not be doing any extended hikes, however you should be comfortable walking one or two miles a day. Oregon coast terrain is variable including sand, uneven ground and unstable/slippery surfaces. The Oregon coast can be a dangerous place and students are responsible for their own safety at all times.  Please contact Brian with any questions or concerns.

 

Hotel- We will be based out of a small hotel located in Bandon that is owned by a pair of local photographers.  We have negotiated a 10% discount on the room rate for our group. Details will be provided once you have registered for the course.  Rooms are somewhat limited so we suggest booking early. You are, of course, welcome to stay at a different hotel or a campground.

Cancellation Policy-  Brian reserves the right to cancel the workshop in the event of extreme or unsafe conditions such as fire, pandemic, illness of instructors or with three or fewer registrations. In this event you will get a full refund. Attendees who cancel will receive a 75% refund of their fees if we are able to fill their spot.
