Yosemite Photography Workshops


I will be headed to beautiful Yosemite National Park this weekend, camera in-tow, so I thought it appropriate to share with you this information that just came across my desk inbox about a photography workshop in Yosemite- for anyone else who is interested in following in the footsteps of the great Ansel Adams. Get the scoop on the Yosemite Guided Photography Workshop, presented by Y Explore, after the jump…


Photograph Yosemite from a different perspective. Sharpen your skills and learn interesting techniques from our richly talented Yosemite Photographers while shooting in exciting locations throughout the park. Our unique Yosemite Photography Workshops present opportunities to take control of your camera and achieve your artistic goals in the natural setting of Yosemite National Park. Subjects of our workshops and photo field sessions may include granite monoliths and domes, waterfalls, wildflowers, black bears, and other wildlife. Beginners and professional photographers alike have benefited from working with our experienced mentors.

Interpretive educational sessions are available to everyone with an interest in photography and a love of the outdoors. Clients may have input in choosing subjects they would like to shoot as well as topics they would like to have covered. Our professional Photo Guides have lived and worked in the park for over 20 years and will help you discover locations that you may not find on your own.

We offer 4 types of photo sessions. Each type of session is open to everyone, but there are different price ranges for each. Some sessions will require advanced knowledge and special equipment, but we will customize a tour for anyone interested in Yosemite photography regardless of experience or types of camera you own. We try to limit our group sizes to 10 people. We also offer discounted pricing to larger groups looking for a private outing. Please call (800) 886-8009 to inquire about our special pricing.

Please check our interactive Calendar for a workshop on the date you plan to visit Yosemite. If one is not scheduled, we will be happy to customize a photo field session for you.
