Yosemite Landscapes Photo Session by Robb Hirsch

Yosemite Photography Workshops and Classes

Photograph Yosemite National Park from a different perspective with our professional guides whose sole purpose is to help you improve your own photography. Smaller class sizes for our unique Yosemite Photo Workshops present opportunities to take control of your camera and achieve your artistic goals in a natural setting with personalized attention from your instructor. They are open to photo enthusiasts of all experience levels in every season. Every tour is designed to help you sharpen skills and learn interesting techniques from exciting shooting locations throughout the park. Each class we offer is a unique interpretive educational experience. Our Photo Guides (including National Geographic Photographer Phil Schermeister) have lived and worked in Yosemite for many years and will help you discover some of the park’s lesser known shooting locations. Participants may choose their subjects and specific topics, and our professional photographer will plan a tour especially for each student. Further, their main focus will be on improving your photography throughout the entire session to ensure that you leave Yosemite with a new found knowledge and some of the best photos in your library. It is that personal attention that separates us from our competitors. We guarantee smaller class sizes with a better student/teacher ratio. If a session is not scheduled on our Calendar, we will customize one for you. Dynamic Pricing is available on all tours. The price per person will decrease as the size of the group increases. Instructional landscape classes and advanced wildlife and macro photography seminars with private field sessions available from professional local Yosemite photographers. Courses are offered in Yosemite throughout the year.
