Texas Landscape Safari Itinerary

The Spring 2016 Texas Landscape Safari will be held April 24 – 28, 2016 in Fort Davis, Texas deep in the heart of West Texas! That’s right. The Spring 2016 TLS will be moving from the Hill Country to the mountains and deserts of West Texas.

Base Camp will be at the Indian Lodge in the Davis Mountains State Park in Fort Davis, Texas and we will be shooting at Big Bend National Park, Guadalupe Mountains National Park and Davis Mountains State Park as well as other key locations during the four day workshop. Several of these locations will require a short hike to the best shooting locations so a good pair of hiking shoes or boots and a photo-pack to carry your gear is highly recommended. Most other key spots and overlooks are “drive up and shoot” opportunities, so don’t worry if you’re not up for the hike. There are thousands of great locations within 200 miles of our base camp!

The Spring 2016 Texas Landscape Safari will be held April 24 – 28, 2016 in Fort Davis, Texas deep in the heart of West Texas! That’s right. The Spring 2016 TLS will be moving from the Hill Country to the mountains and deserts of West Texas.

This is not your usual workshop. It’s more like a bunch of friends getting together to share their love of landscape photography and help each other grow as serious amateur photographers.

It’s a chance to visit and photograph some of the most picturesque spots in West Texas. It’s also a chance to learn some basic techniques to enhance your landscape photography behind the camera and in the digital darkroom and if you’re not completely satisfied (but exhausted) at the end of the workshop, I’ll gladly refund your money!

Base Camp will be at the Indian Lodge in the Davis Mountains State Park in Fort Davis, Texas and we will be shooting at Big Bend National Park, Guadalupe Mountains National Park and Davis Mountains State Park as well as other key locations during the four day workshop. Several of these locations will require a hike to the best shooting locations so a good pair of hiking shoes or boots and a photo-pack to carry your gear is highly recommended. Most other key spots and overlooks are “drive up and shoot” opportunities, so don’t worry if you’re not up for the hike. There are thousands of great locations within 200 miles of our base camp!

Just drop me an email via this blog or my Flickr site with your name, mailing address and email address and I’ll send you details and sign up instructions. Our class size is limited to the first fifteen people, so don’t wait too long!
