Oregon Coast Photo Workshop with John Pedersen

May 18 - May 21


Explore an intimate Oregon coast experience on my Central Oregon Coast Workshop! Join me for an intensive few days along the Oregon Coast to capture the moods and personality of this amazing coastline in this photo workshop. Instead of visiting dozens of locations, we will focus our time in a few areas that are rich with photographic opportunities. The workshop will be based out of Yachats and we will focus our time and creative energy on locations around Yachats, from south of Yachats at Cape Perpetua (thors well) to Newport (lighthouse and fishing fleet). We will visit several locations more than once so that we can become attuned to the location and create more compelling images through repeated exposure to the tides and moods of the area. We will conduct several image reviews along with educational sessions during the workshop to help elevate our creative vision and technical skills in capturing this magnificent landscape.

We will focus on much more than the grand landscapes in this workshop….I will work with each attendee to focus their vision to tell a more compelling story with each and every image. Using telephoto lenses to isolate and simplify, shooting intimate nature images, macros/close-ups…we’ll do it all in this central Oregon Coast workshop. By the end of our time together, my goal is that each person has learned a great deal about creativity, photography and has had a fantastic experience in this amazingly beautiful setting.

We will be at the right place, at the right time to capture some amazing images, found only on the Oregon coast while honing out photographic skills. Specific locations have been determined by years of experience. We’ll visit some of the well-known, iconic places, as well as many places off the beaten path. In addition, to really experience the Intimate Oregon Coast, we will revisit certain locations a few times in order to dive deep in to the creative possibilities that are only unlocked with some familiarity. The Oregon Coast workshops are perhaps my most anticipated. The Oregon Coast contains some of the most varied, unique areas. Because of its remote beaches and tide pools, rocky coastline with majestic sea stacks and dramatic sunsets, this area offers great and different photographic experiences at every turn.
