Michigan UP Fall Color with Chuck Haney

We will meet in the vibrant college town of Marquette located on the shores of mighty Lake Superior for some of the best fall color anywhere in the country. The countryside surrounding town is full of charming country roads that lead to scenic lakes and streams. We will also make a side trip to the scenic Bond Falls, always a workshop favorite.
Then we will spend three days exploring around Pictured Rock National Lakeshore with its dramatic cliffs, sand dunes, beaches, waterfalls and lake reflections. We will be reserved for sunset cruise out on the lake (weather permitting) to get a unique perspective of the fascinating shoreline. The UP autumn colors are not only the best in the Midwest, but rival any location in the country in my opinion.

Night Sky at Sleeping Bear Dunes with Neil Weaver & Aubrieta Hope

Join us for a workshop dedicated to sunset and night sky photography at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Our goal is to help you improve technical skills, artistic vision, and most importantly, have fun! We’ll shoot at the park’s iconic locations during the evening golden hour, at twilight, and after the stars appear. In addition to shooting sessions, we’ll teach strategies for Exposure and Composition that are especially useful for night sky and landscape photography. We’ll also show you our digital workflow and post processing techniques in Adobe Lightroom. In case of inclement weather, we will offer extra classroom sessions specific to the unique challenges of night sky photography.
