Crested Butte Colorado is one of the most amazing areas in the country.   Mountain peaks and hills covered with waist high wildflowers surround the beautiful small town that is photo worthy in itself.   We will be driving the many dirt roads that wind through the valleys in search of great images.   Join us for one the most enjoyable photography outings you will find.    

This is a full on photography workshop and not just a tour.   That means will will be working non stop to improve your photography skills.   Everything from the technical how to side of creating sharp images, to very advanced compositional theory to editing.   Through a series of student loved assessments and critiques you will learn to see the world in a different way.   Dan works with every student one on one as much as possible so every level of shooter will learn new ideas relevant to their needs during the workshop.  Beginners to seasoned enthusiasts are encouraged and welcome.   Dan takes pride in making the newcomers fell welcome and comfortable, and at the same time making sure the old hands get the advanced ideas and concepts that will improve their craft.

"Dear Dan, I can't even begin to tell you how much I learned from you.  I am a firm "Live View" user now.  Just edited in LR for the first time (I am a diehard PS person). My head is still spinning from all the great lessons. Thanks so much!"

"I’m way overdue thanking you for the great workshop!  Your taking the time to understand where I am in my photographic journey — and meet me there — is much appreciated. It meant the the learning had a real impact on me, rather than you presenting a canned lesson. Your flexibility, feedback and little tips and tricks were great and I found the exercises in the city park at the start, really helpful in terms of getting me to focus.  Thank you!  I look forward to joining you again, whether in a class or another workshop."
