The rugged and expansive coast of Oregon is the perfect place to practice long exposures and time lapse photography. Join instructor David Marx on the adventure of a photographer's lifetime, exploring the coast with your camera. As he leads you to the most photogenic spots at the best times of the day to photograph them, you will create striking images and time lapses, and learn exactly how to process them to perfection.
One of the best parts about attending a workshop with David Marx is that he will make sure you walk away with a complete understanding of what he has taught. He teaches you the ins and outs of creating pleasing images using long exposures and crafting perfect time lapses, making these very technical processes easily understandable.

Depending on the workshop, varying levels of photographic knowledge are recommended for enrollment. For those interested in building a solid photographic skill base, we have designed a stair-step approach that teaches you to think, see and create with your camera. We call these our "Foundation" workshops. Beginners should start with Basic Photography, then progress to Intermediate Photography. Additional Foundation workshops such as Adobe Lightroom CC, Adobe Lightroom Classic, Introduction to Flash Photography, and Introduction to Professional Studio Lighting will help to round out your technical know-how.
Our "Travel" workshops invite you to some of the U.S.'s most stunning locations, under the wing of our accomplished instructors. For most of these workshops, we require that you are familiar with the manual operation of your camera. Check individual workshop listings for more information.
If you are uncertain about where you should begin, please call and we will be happy to help you decide what class is right for you.
We accept registrations on a first-come first-served basis until a workshop is full. Register early! If your favorite workshop is full, ask to be put on a wait list.
