Bandon - the Oregon Coast & Swan Island

August 28 - September 4


[or $799 à la carte]

Land, Sea, & Flora | 3 Instructors | Multiple locations

Two award-winning photographers 


immersion in several world-renowned gardens


August 28 - 31:

The best of Oregon from the idyllic seaside town of Bandon to the masses of Dahlias in every color under the sun!

Start on the coast with expert instruction from Susan Dimock, professional landscape photographer who lives in Bandon and knows the seascape intimately. She will introduce us to shooting techniques and subjects that shine in the prevailing conditions, from the legendary giants rising from the gentle waves in the setting sun or barely making themselves known in the misty fog, to starfish and sand patterns at low tide.


September 1: Travel day to Swan Island


September 2 - 4:

Spend 3 full days in the Dahlias and the Portland Rose Garden with Jackie & Padma Inguva. Wander through row upon row of colorful blooms at the Swan Island Dahlia Farm where you will put into practice a variety of shooting techniques interspersed with post-processing demos. 

Learn to see beyond the moment.... Develop a flow consisting of selecting a subject, choosing an optic to deliver a desired look and feel, shooting in a manner that speaks to your creativity, then bringing it all together in post.


 Take time from the hectic pace of everyday life and give yourself this gift... Serenity by the sea, losing  yourself & refining your creativity in a chorus of Dahlias, and finally, leaving with a renewed energy for artistic expression through your photography. Led by Jackie Kramer, Padma Inguva, & Susan Dimock.
