    Fall 2010, Yosemite and Eastern Sierra Extravaganza!

    NOTE: ONE slot still available!

    GetDPI presents our Fall 2010 workshop,

    A Yosemite Valley and
    Eastern Sierra Fall Color Extravaganza!



    El Cap at Sunrise


    Dates: Tuesday October 19th through Sunday October 24th.

    This workshop is limited to 8 participants.

    Course outline and planned itinerary:

    Tuesday the 19th: Pick up at San Jose International Airport (SJC) at 11 AM. From there we drive you to Yosemite Valley where we stay in the historic Awahnee Luxury (4-star) Hotel situated in the heart of Yosemite Valley. We will photograph late afternoon light and sunset, then return for our welcome dinner in the Awahnee’s award-winning dining room:


    Wednesday the 20th: Early morning sunrise shooting in Yosemite Valley, return to the Awahnee dining room for late breakfast around 10 AM. Check out after breakfast and we head through the Yosemite High Country to our second shooting area, Lee Vining CA. Here we will check into our hotel for the next two days, the Murphey's Motel in Lee Vining. We will photograph Lee Vining Canyon that afternoon, then to historic Mono Lake for a sunset shoot. Dinner will be in Lee Vining.

    From our Fall 2007 workshop, early morning at Valley View:


    Thursday the 21st: Up early for sunrise on Mono Lake OR Virginia Lakes, depending on conditions. Early morning we will photograph along the Virginia Lakes loop. Late morning breakfast and back to our rooms for a few hours of rest. That afternoon we will head up Lundy Canyon to photograph the Lundy Lakes area and beaver ponds located there. Depending on light and conditions, we will stay there or back to Mono Lake for another sunset shoot. Dinner in Lee Vining.

    Some older (2003-ish) images from the East side, Lee Vining Canyon, Lundy Canyon and Virginia Lake -- apologies for the processing, but this was my first or second digital SLR:






    Friday the 22nd: Up and packed early, we head back to the Yosemite High Country to photograph Ellery and/or Tioga Lakes at sunrise, then on to photograph Olmstead Point and Tuolumne Meadows in the early morning light. From there we head back to the town of Groveland where you’ll spend the next two nights at the Historic Groveland Hotel. We will probably have lunch at PJ’s café , then let you get situated at your Hotel. Around 4 we’ll pick you up for cocktails and then dinner in town later that night.

    Tioga Lake from just a a few weeks ago:


    Olmstead Point, last year:


    Saturday the 23rd: No early rise this morning. We’ll pick you up around 8 AM for breakfast in town, then head to our classroom for a day of processing images and one-on-one instruction. The goal here is to help you get at least three images ready for print output. We’ll break for lunch in the middle and work through the afternoon. That night Guy and I will prepare a BBQ feast for you on Pine Mountain Lake, weather permitting.

    The Historic Groveland Hotel:


    Sunday the 24th: We’ll pick you up at 8 AM for breakfast, then do our return drive to San Jose Airport, ETA 1PM for flights home. (PS: Note there are regular shuttles between San Jose Airport and San Francisco Airport if you have a preference for SFO. )


    Transportation: All local transportation from SJC, during the workshop, and back to San Jose Airport is included in the workshop tuition! Guy and I will be your designated drivers in Suburbans or vans.

    Meals: Costs for all meals are included in the workshop tuition! Usually this will include a sit down breakfast and sit down dinner. (Alcohol not included except for cocktail party and BBQ.) Light snacks and bottled drinking water will be supplied in the vans for your convenience as well.

    Lodging: All lodging costs are included in the workshop tuition – and yes, this includes the night we stay at the Awahnee!

    Total fee for this "all-inclusive" workshop is $3695 per person.

    A $2000 deposit is required at sign-up to reserve your spot and the balance will be due by September 15th (~30 days before workshop). Payment can be made by check or PayPal personal. Please use jack-at-getdpi-dot-com for PayPal or you can mail a check to:

    Just to follow up after this workshop. Have to say we nailed the timing right to the day with fall colors in Yosemite and the Eastern Sierra's. As this is our 10th workshop together our workshops have become one of the best target rich shooting you can find. Jack and I do a lot of planning and scouting before every workshop to make sure our participants have amazing images to add to there portfolios. We take great pride in what we do and more important we really love doing them and from my seat that is what makes them just amazing to attend and be a part of. Come join us on our next winter workshop which we will be announcing soon. Thanks Your hosts Jack and Guy

    BTW many images from this workshop can be seen posted here
