Join Tatra Photography for the ultimate winter tour of Yosemite National Park in California. With soaring snow capped mountains, towering trees & frozen waterfalls, Yosemite national park is a haven for landscape photography. We will follow in the famous footsteps of Ansel Adams who immortalised Yosemite to capture the spectacular winter conditions in Yosemite valley.
This two centre photography tour starts with four nights in Yosemite and will include all the classic locations in Yosemite valley and some hidden gems. We will start the tour in the iconic Yosemite Valley with Valley View, Tunnel View, Cathedral beach, Swinging bridge and El Capitan.
The second part of the tour will be based in San Francisco for three nights to capture this famous city at sunrise, sunset & the blue hour. We will photograph the famous Golden Gate bridge and Cityscapes of San Francisco as well as some of the spectacular nearby coastal scenery.
All levels are catered for so whether you are new to photography, an enthusiast or a seasoned pro we provide a fun packed tour with a masterclass in landscape techniques from our professional photographer Adam Burton.
As well as having extended and flexible time in the field, where we will work one-on-one with each guest to hone your landscape photography skills and how to use the camera to create wow-factor images.
Your tutor for this workshop is Adam Burton. Adam is one of the UK’s leading landscape photographers and author of four books. Since 2008 he has been working as a full time professional landscape photographer, regularly supplying imagery and undertaking commissions for a wide range of business clients.
He has photographed five of the seven continents and now specialises in the landscapes of the UK, particularly Southwest England.
Adam first began teaching himself photography in 2001, mainly from reading magazines and then putting into practice techniques while on location either in the New Forest or along the Dorset coastline. This informal training enabled Adam to develop a unique style that continue to make his photographs instantly recognisable and highly in demand. His knowledge is entirely self taught; he has never received any formal photographic training.
Ever since Adam first began taking photography seriously, his images have been in demand commercially. Since 2004 his images have been published regularly in national newspapers and magazines, as well as in books, greeting cards and calendars. Over this time he has worked for many large and prestigious organisations, supplying imagery and undertaking commissions for companies including British Petroleum, The AA, The Times and National Geographic. Adam has authored four books published by leading UK publishing houses.
