Yosemite Winter: Moon & Moonlight Photo Workshop With Sony Artisan Gary Hart

Snow, reflections, a full moon rising at sunset between Half Dome and El Capitan, and a virtually empty park make December a fabulous time to photograph Yosemite.

In the Yosemite Winter Moon photography workshop with Sony Artisan Gary Hart, you will photograph all of Yosemite's classic views at their winter best. You'll enjoy misty mornings on the meadows, crisp reflections in the Merced River, and snow lining the valley rim and capping the summits of El Capitan and Half Dome. If the group is lucky, you'll get to experience Yosemite Valley decked out in fresh snow. You'll photograph at least two Yosemite Valley moonrises, including a full moon rising between El Capitan and Half Dome at sunset. And after dark you'll photograph Yosemite's granite monoliths illuminated by moonlight. Though this workshop's objective will not be Horsetail Fall, it ends just as the Horsetail Fall window opens, so if the conditions align on our final final evening, the group will take a shot at Horsetail Fall.

“In all of my workshops the emphasis is on getting out and shooting, so we'll spend lots of time exploring each scene. In addition to all the well know photo locations, I'll take you to my favorite less known and photographed spots. My assistant photographer and I are always available for training in the field, and each day will include classroom photography and workflow training, as well as at least two image review sessions.”
