Mammoth, CA

Welcome to Mammoth Lakes, California. Magnificent in scale and showing no shortage of natural beauty, this hidden gem has all the charm you come to expect California to offer. Learn Landscape Photography in some of the most interesting and dramatic settings in Northern California. With lots of options and diversity on this workshop, we will explore the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forrest with twisted trunks, these are some of the oldest trees in the entire world living at elevations of 4000-11,000 feet. We will also visit Mono Lake, an iconic landscape area in the Western USA. With sunrise as our backdrop and surreal Tufa Formations in the frame, we will capture some truly epic photographs from this location. These are just a couple of highlights we have planned. Please Contact Us with any questions or concerns.
