Oregon Coast Photo Workshop With Sony Artisans Don Smith & Gary Hart

Join Sony Artisans Don Smith and Gary Hart for a photography workshop along the Oregon Coast.

Since the dawn of photography, the Oregon Coast’s towering sea stacks, pounding surf, lush forests, and cascading creeks have drawn photographers from around the world. Enjoy all this through your own viewfinder in spring 2019, when professional landscape photographers Gary Hart and Don Smith share the Oregon Coast’s power and tranquility with a small group of enthusiastic photographers like you.

Bookended by the sea stacks of Bandon and Cannon Beaches are too many spots in between to list. Two nights in Bandon and one night each in Newport and Cannon Beach provide ample time for sunrise to sunset exploration of the Oregon Coast’s well-known icons as well as its hidden gems. In addition to great photography, this workshop includes expert training and four nights private lodging.

Gary Hart and Don Smith have been photographing nature’s beauty for decades. For each of the last dozen years Gary and Don have guided 15 to 20 photo workshop groups to some of the world’s most beautiful scenery, from the American Southwest to Hawaii to New Zealand. Each workshop includes fantastic photography in the best conditions, advance preparation material, hands-on in the field guidance, and scheduled craft and image review classes. You’ll also have great fun with new friends.
