Lake Quinault with Art Wolfe

For those who have been looking for a different, more intimate and intensive Olympic Peninsula experience—look no further! This photography retreat is designed with the avid photographer in mind who is looking to further develop and explore their talent. Be a part of a small group photographing together for five days in the cathedral-like Quinault Rainforest staying at the luxurious and historic Lake Quinault Lodge.

We decided to offer something a little bit different for this workshop and will be including a special printing demo. We have the newest state of the art printer from Epson and will not only show you how to calibrate your monitors, but will also show you how to achieve the best quality prints. By the time we are done with this demo you will know how to calibrate your monitor, print quality prints, and get to take home archival prints from your own collection.

For those of you that have partners that are not photographers, please note that couples are welcome! You may bring your spouce so they can help you enjoy the luxurious rooms that the beautiful Lake Quinault Lodge has to offer. They can join the group for meals and the final critique at the end of the workshop if they like as well.

Seattle, Washington, is surrounded by a necklace of three national parks, each wonderful in its own right: Mt. Rainier, Olympic and North Cascades.

Of these, aptly named Olympic is located in the most northwestern corner of the contiguous United States on the remote Olympic Peninsula.

 

Olympic National Park is high up on my list of favorites. It has earned this spot because of its abundant variety of subjects. Besides the dramatic Olympic Mountains from which this big park takes its name, there are sparkling lakes, lovely waterfalls, at least three gloriously green rainforests and, perhaps best of all, Olympic’s numerous and deservedly famous beaches.
