Valley of Fire with JKPW

The Valley of Fire is a unique state park hidden away only 1-hour from Las Vegas. The rocky desert landscape burns a fiery red when lit by the sun. Over time, these red rock formations have created arches, slot canyons and colorful variations that provide endless photo opportunities. With focus on creativity and learning, this workshop will help you to refine your eye and help you create a strong portfolio of some of the southwest’s most interesting rock. Join us for this amazing photo workshop in the desert of Nevada.

Mount Rainier Wildflowers and Landscapes with Jennifer King

Landscapes, lakes, wildflowers and waterfalls… simply paradise! This is one of the most enjoyable and beautiful photo workshop locations offered. Mount Rainier offers us a serene yet wild landscape that is good for the soul and amazing for photography.

Palouse with Jennifer King

Nothing says America like the beautiful farmland that spans the eastern Washington and western Idaho states. This region, called the Palouse, is a vista-filled landscape of wheat, crops, barns and beauty unlike anywhere in the U.S. Join us for this summer photo workshop as we capture the harvest of America’s beautiful western farmlands.

After our 2016 Palouse Harvest Workshop, we decided that we needed to quickly revisit the Palouse region. While this workshop is usually offered every other year, we noticed how many barns, granaries and other photographic icons are beginning to fall, and are being replaced with modern and efficient buildings. If you have ever considered photographing the Palouse, please consider going soon so that you may capture the charm, history and uniqueness of this area.

South Dakota Blackhills & Badlands with Jennifer King

The Milky Way is so bright that you can see its color with your eyes. It is here in this vast landscape that we will explore and photograph rugged rock formations, prairies, history and wildlife. We will travel through the wild west, stay in historic Deadwood and photograph stars over Devils Tower. Join us on this 5-day photo adventure capturing landscapes and stars in the Blackhills and Badlands of South Dakota.

“Of all the places in our country that I have photographed, The Blackhills and The Badlands of South Dakota are one of the most unique and photo worthy landscapes.” ~ Jennifer King

Design your photos for success

Story and photographs by Jennifer King

Summer is here, and a great time to get out and photograph. As you are capturing all that summer has to offer, I want to remind you of the impact that fundamental design principles can have on your photography.

Are you photographing a mountain or beach? Where you place your horizon line can help you to create depth and dimension in your photo and also help call attention to the hero in your photograph. Consider referencing design tools like the Golden Ratio, Rule of Thirds or the Fibonacci Spiral when setting up your composition.
