In conjunction with internationally recognized landscape artists Tom Crews and Thomas Welborn, hololightphototours is pleased to announce their first workshop as a team. Our location will be the fabulous Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge in southwestern Oklahoma the last week of October. One of the nation's finest and most diverse wildlife refuge's, it was recently voted #1 in the country by readers of USA Today. Our country's very first wildlife refuge features ancient granite mountains, abundant wildlife (bison, elk, deer, prairie dogs, longhorn cattle, and more), old refuge structures built by the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) during the 1930's Great Depression, and 11 lakes scattered throughout providing us with an endless source of subject material. If we are lucky, the Fall foliage that contrasts beautifully with the surrounding landscape will be in full bloom as well. Come prepared for an experience you will never forget.
This workshop is designed with the intermediate photographer in mind. It is essential that each participant already know the basic controls and more of their their camera gear, and they should also be familiar with the basics in Adobe Lightroom or Camera RAW as these will be our primary tools for this workshop.
This will be a full outdoor experience with camping inside the refuge in order to maximize our time there, and will include some semi-strenuous hiking occasionally. Mornings and evenings will be spent shooting, while mid-day hours will be spent in processing and discussion under the protection of a Group Pavilion (w/electricity). We will talk quite a bit about creating art and furthering a personal artistic vision rather than just making photographs. Our days will be long and full with all that we wish to accomplish. This will be an intense workshop, not a vacation. Come to learn a lot and leave with a new sense of how you view your work going forward into the future.
For more details, call or email us for a course outline/itinerary and a list of camping gear you will need to bring.
