There’s nothing like the colors that you’ll find high in the Colorado rockies in the summer. This year’s winter delivered the much-needed snowpack in the high country, so I’m optimistic about this summer’s wildflower blooms. One of the best locations to find wildflowers in Colorado is around the town of Crested Butte. While there are certainly many famous locations for Colorado wildflowers, many of them require serious 4WD vehicles to reach. At Crested Butte, I’ve scouted the surrounding areas and pretty much every site I visit can be reached by a standard vehicle.

You can join me here in July 2019 to photograph these wonderful blooms and learn all about creative close-up photography.
I love it when I can capture interactions in nature. This bumblebee had no issues with being photographed on my 2018 Colorado Wildflower Safari. Spaces are available to join me there on this year’s workshop, where you’ll learn creative close-up techniques and photograph the summer wildflower blooms in the Rocky Mountains.
My third annual Rocky Mountain Wildflower photo safari will be held July 9-12 in Crested Butte, Colorado. I have two seats available for photographers who wish to immerse themselves in the beauty of the Rockies while photographing the colorful wildflower blooms there. I’ve designed this safari to be low-impact. No hiking or off-roading is required. We will focus our efforts on creative close-up/macro techniques, as well as other creative ways of capturing Colorado’s summer colors.
Booking deadline is June 24th, so reserve your seat soon!

My groups are limited to 8 photographers and include both field and computer instruction. Full details after the jump… Continue reading Summer/Fall Photo Safaris Closing Soon→
I enjoyed teaching a night sky photography class with a small group of clients last night in Limon, Colorado. Despite some early cloud cover, conditions improved after dark and we ended up with some nice shots. The image above is a 25 minute composite (50 x 30s exposures).
