Jenny Wiley State Resort Park KY with Ron Gaskins & Amanda Haddox

October 21 - October 23


Kentucky is calling and Mountaineer Photo Excursions will be returning this fall! On October 21-23, 2022, Ron Gaskins & Amanda Haddox will lead another Jenny Wiley Fall Photo Workshop!

Special Note: You’re probably aware of the recent severe flooding in eastern Kentucky. Along with two other State Parks, Jenny Wiley State Resort Park is currently providing temporary lodging to families displaced by the flooding. We expect this situation to continue for the near future. Therefore, while some of our activities will occur at the Park, our lodging arrangements will NOT be at the Park.

Jenny Wiley State Resort Park in Prestonsburg, KY, is our only annual workshop destination. Amanda Haddox and Ron Gaskins have led at least one event a year here since our first one in 2012. Every year, our schedule is a little different, and includes both long-time favorite activities and new venues.

One of our workshop highlights will be our Elk Tours. While some years we have seen almost a hundred elk and other years only a handful, we have never failed to see and photograph elk in the wild! Another highlight of our workshop weekend will be our Pontoon Boat Cruise on Dewey Lake. This 1100-acre lake is located within the heart of Jenny Wiley Sate Resort Park. We expect to see beautiful fall color and reflections during our cruise, as well as deer, osprey, bald eagles, blue heron, and more as we explore the lake and small coves!

In addition, Ron and Amanda will include additional locations of interest to explore with your camera. We have visited historical sites, beautiful landscapes, and unique venues, and we will have special locations selected for this workshop. During the entire weekend, Ron and Amanda will share their photography knowledge and experience with participants.

WHEN: October 21-23, 2022; Beginning Friday evening at 6:00 pm; a full day on Saturday; concluding Sunday afternoon.

LODGING: Clients will enjoy lodging at Comfort Suites Prestonsburg West, near the Park. We have reserved a block of rooms and Lodging registrations will be accepted by Mountaineer Photo Excursions. We recommend two nights stay (Friday & Saturday nights). Lodging cost for two nights is $203.83, including taxes and fees. Lodging reservations can only be guaranteed through September 19, 2022, at 11:00 am.

FEE: Registration opened on Friday, August 5, 2022, at 9:00 am. $169.00 and still our least expensive weekend Excursion! All registration and lodging reservations will be handled by Mountaineer Photo Excursions. Please note that lodging is available but is an additional fee. Most local transportation, admission to selected venues, and photography instruction is included in the workshop fee, but meals are not. Registration will close for this event on Saturday, October 15, 2022, at 11:00 pm.
