If you love the challenge of picturing the agrarian landscape, studded with symbolic wooden barns and iconic Americana, join me for four days roaming the Palouse farm country of southeastern Washington. In early summer the winter crops are close to harvest, and the rolling hills are patterned with varied colors and plowing designs. It’s a superb place to de-stress by driving quiet country roads in search of that perfect painterly Farmscape, and an outstanding set of locations in which to grow your color and black & white renditions. A critique session is offered, but is optional.
We’ll meet in Spokane on June 13th at the Hampton Inn, and after breakfast at our hotel the next morning we’ll drive south and begin our exploration of the Palouse countryside. I’ll finalize the daily itinerary when I complete scouting on the 13th, as I like to see current conditions just before we start the workshop. Our base in the Palouse will be the town of Pullman for June 14, 15, 16, and we’ll arrive back in Spokane by 6 pm on the 17th, in time to catch a late flight if you need to do so.
Locations: The Palouse has many locations, but know that we’ll have several overview sessions from Steptoe Butte, Kamiak Butte, as well as an afternoon into twilight shoot at Palouse River Falls, and a great morning session in Uniontown, plus the many backroads discoveries unique to this area.
Included: Hotel in Spokane, WA on June 13, Pullman, WA from June 14-16 (four nights total), Breakfasts at each hotel, Picnic dinner at Palouse River Falls, Final Dinner in Pullman or Spokane, transportation in 15 passenger van throughout the Palouse, and Kerrick’s in the field photo instruction, plus critiques during the workshop and after.
Cost: $1800 per person. Deposit of $500 due by March 13. Balance due by May 1, 2017. Cancellation with Full Refund of Deposit until April 30. No refunds after May 1.
We have a minimum of 4 people to run this workshop, and will max out at 10.
