Sunrise Landscapes – Thursday

We’re going to greet the day in the beautiful desert and then come back to the digital darkroom and finish our work. Starting at 5am, we’ll get in our vehicles and travel out to photograph the sunrise in the gorgeous mountains looking out over the desert. We’ll spend time looking at light, making the most of lenses and understanding the effect our settings have on our storytelling in the cool of the day. Then we’ll get back in our vehicles and come back to the classroom where we’ll finish the images we just shot so you can see exactly what you shot in the morning can be finished. We’ll finish up by afternoon in time for you to take a nap and continue with the rest of your STW experience. Come, join us for the fun, camaraderie and learning.

Workshop Session Details

Workshop Instructor

Moose’s true passion has always been and remains photographing the life history of our endangered wildlife and wild places. Since 1981 he and his wife Sharon have dedicated their lives to this pursuit. Educating the public about our wild heritage is their hallmark. In recent years Moose has added aviation photography to his pursuits with the same goal of preserving our aviation heritage, pictorial and oral for future generations. Along the way Moose has been honored for his photographic passion: a Nikon Ambassador USA, Lexar Elite Photographer, recipient of the John Muir Conservation Award, Research Associate with the Endangered Species Recovery Program, just to name a few. He’s part of Epson’s Finish Strong ad campaign. Moose is creative producer/photographer of his acclaimed film: Warbirds and The Men Who Flew Them. He shares his knowledge through his writing, being published in over 143 magazines worldwide, author of 28 books including his latest, Photographic FUNdamentals, Taking Flight and best seller Captured. He lectures across the country to thousands upon thousands of photographers every year. One of the original Nikon shooters to receive the D1 in 1999, Moose embraced this new technology, becoming the only wildlife photographer in the world to shoot strictly digital in the early years. While a beta site for all the major hardware and software manufacturers, Moose continues being a creative innovator of new techniques both behind the camera and the computer, which is the driving force behind his photography and goals.
