Glacier National Park Photo Workshop August 20 – 25, 2017

August 20, 2017

| $1595

Presented by Tim Cooper

Where We Go: There are few roads in America, or in the entire world, that can compare to Glacier’s Going-to-the-Sun Road. It twists and turns while taking riders through tunnels creatively carved into the steep mountainside. Waterfalls of melted snow flow year round onto one side of the road, while incredibly steep drops on the other side deliver it to the valley below. Jammers – bright red buses that have been carrying visitors to the top of Logan Pass for decades – add pops of color to the landscape, matched only by the bright white fur of mountain goats that get so close they could almost be photographed with a macro lens. In this stunning environment, landscape photographer and professional instructor Tim Cooper takes you straight to the park’s premier shooting spots so you can create images that will leave you as breathless as looking over the edge of the road. Whether photographing the magical Avalanche Creek, or the towering cedars, snow-mantled summits, and sparkling mountain lakes that abound here, you’ll understand why Glacier is a landscape photographer’s paradise.
