Important Details and Itinerary
Spring in the Tetons is a truly magical time, as the snow-capped peaks of the majestic mountain range provide a stunning backdrop for the wildflowers that begin to bloom in the meadows of the Teton Valley. This workshop is designed to be less strenuous and adventurous, as we will mainly be shooting from the roadside and will only take short, leisurely hikes to capture the beauty of this season.
As the snow melts and the first signs of spring emerge, the Tetons come alive with the vibrant colors of wildflowers such as Indian paintbrush, lupine, and fireweed. The combination of the snow-covered peaks and the colorful wildflowers creates a truly breathtaking landscape that is perfect for photography.
During this workshop, we will take advantage of the easy access to the Tetons by shooting from the roadside, allowing us to capture the beauty of the mountains and the wildflowers without having to venture too far from our vehicles. We will also take short, leisurely hikes to explore the meadows and get closer to the wildflowers for more intimate shots.
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced photographer, this workshop is perfect for anyone who wants to capture the beauty of spring in the Tetons without having to embark on a challenging adventure. Join us and experience the magic of the Tetons in springtime.
This was a great workshop. A few things that I really appreciated: David sent handouts ahead of time, this allowed me to look over the material and make a point to ask about things I did not understand. Sometimes during the presentation, the amount of information can become overwhelming to process. Both David and Jennifer were easy to approach and ask questions. Like many other reviewers have stated, they are there to help you. I liked that we got to do both, take photographs and edit. I learned quite a bit about Lightroom. The small group size was nice. One felt like, you got the one on one attention time to ask questions. Definitely recommend a workshop with Exploring Exposure.
Death Valley Experience
|I have attended several workshops, and this one ranks at the very top for several reasons. David and Jennifer are awesome photographers, very passionate and helpful. They are always available to assist you in every aspect of your photography, on the field and in post. They went out of their way to change our schedule because of weather conditions, and that was truly appreciated by the entire group.|
The student always comes first
There are good photography workshops and bad photography workshops, and David and Jennifer are among the best. Small session sizes, extensively researched locations and intimate knowledge of the area, easy going and friendly, and the ability to determine your strong and weak points and work with them to make you a better photographer. They're not there to get their own photos, they make sure you're getting the best pictures you can. I've seen some workshops where the instructors turn their students loose to fend for themselves, but that's not what you'll get here. Always available, and always offering tips without being overbearing, David and Jennifer are the best.
