Join Marti Jeffers for her fifth trip to spectacular Grand Teton National Park to shoot the beautiful fall colors of the park.  this workshop will focus on shooting, field instruction, critique of images, along with classroom instruction and labs on shooting, composition, post processing and printing.   Joining Marti this year is Cathy Aronson, a master printer and a photography guide in and around Grand Teton.   Cathy will provide classroom instruction on preparing your images for printing.   We will spend an afternoon/evening at Cathy's studio and you will be able to use her expertise to create a beautiful print of an image you made on the workshop to take home with you.
We are most fortunate to have as our sponsor for this workshop, Breathing Color, who is providing printer paper for the workshop as well as a promotional code for the workshop participants for a $20 discount on their website.   Please visit Breathing Color to see the variety of papers and services they offer.
We will photograph some of the Grand Teton's classic locations in beautiful light, including Schwabacher Landing, the Mormon Barnes, Oxbow Bend, as well as many other lesser known, yet still stunning locations.  We are also working with a local ranch to make time to shoot the beautiful horses on the ranch as they are driven to or from pasture.  In additon, we will use Cathy's skills as a guide to find wildlife in the area for those of you who are anxious to shoot the local wildlife.
The general schedule for this workshop is shooting sessions in the early morning for sunrise and in the evening for sunset.  On some days, if we find them, we will stay out longer to shoot the bison and elk in the area.   There are classroom sessions for lecture and/or image critique during the day, as well as a lab for assistance with selecting your images for critique and with the use of Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.   The schedule is flexible and dependent on weather.   As the days are long, we plan to have one morning off in the middle of the week, and short breaks during the day each day of the workshop.

This is the first time Marti and Cathy have taught this workshop together.  Here are some testimonials from Marti's 2011 workshops:
"The perfect combination.  New Mexico, a photographer's dream and Marti and her assistant for the workshop, Will Austin.  Put together with a small group of fun photographers and you couldn't ask for anything better.  Everyday is exciting and fun and full of learning experiences and inspiration with Marti and Will being in the field only a step away to offer answers to a question or advice on composition and camera settings.  Then get to the classroom and they are so knowledgeable and helpful.  This is my second workshop with Marti and certainly won't be my  last  ...  I highly recommend any workshop she does.  She is a first class teacher."  Micky, New Mexico and the Spirit of Georgia O'Keefe, 2011
 "What an amazing experience in beautiful, enchanting New Mexico.  Some time has passed since the workshop and I am still processing all of the things that I learned.  However, the area where I made the most progress had nothing to do with f-stops or layers.  It had to do with how to interpret the world around me as an artist through the lens.  With Marti and Will's teaching, and the support of all the other participants, I was able to create images I never thought possible.  Thank you again for an amazing workshop, and thank you to the spirit of Georgia O'Keeffe, which continues to inspire."   Mary Rose, New Mexico and the Spirit of Georgia O'Keefe, 2011
"Callaway Gardens and the surrounding areas are a delightful place to photography and can keep photographers busy for days.  I enjoyed the location as much as the camaraderie of my fellow students.  Marti is a delightful photography workshop leader.  It takes a special person to lead a group of diverse personalities, skill levels and interests through five days of lecture, critiques and hands-on experiences.  Her teaching style works well for beginners as well as advanced photographers by presenting the material in a way that isn't over the head of the beginner yet adds information to supplement the more advanced student's skillset.  She challenges our artistic as well as our emotional approach to photography."   Marcia, Warm Springs and Callaway Gardens, 2011 
"I almost cancelled attending this workshop as it approached.   WHAT A MISTAKE THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN!! This was one of the best workshops I have ever attended.  Marti made certain that everything ran smoothly while providing some of the best classroom and critique sessions possible.  My skill levels improved greatly.  But more importantly, I experienced a new sense of wonderment about the joy of photography.   As Marti reminded us, enjoying photography is really a reflection of enjoying and engaging in life in general.   Thanks to her, Lori and all the wonderful participants I was able to regain a renewed appreciation of all around me and all I have to be thankful for.  You all have my unbounded and eternal gratitude."   Mark,  Warm Springs and Callaway Gardens, 2011
