Join Tatra Photography on the west coast of the United States to discover the rugged coastline of Olympic national park, the wildflower meadows of Mount Rainier national park and the dramatic skyline of Seattle.

Olympic national park has some of the most beautiful coastal, rain forest, and mountain scenery in the United States and the most diverse national park found anywhere in the world. During this Olympic national park tour we will capture the backdrop of snowcapped mountains, pristine rainforests, booming waterfalls and stunning beaches with rock stacks on the Washington coast.

Mount Rainier national park is one of the oldest national park in the United States and dominates the western Washington state. Mount Rainier is an active volcano and the most glaciated peak in the US spawning six major rivers. During this photography tour of the Mountain Rainier national park we will capture the blooming wild flowers in the mountain meadows, pristine evergreen forests, mountain lakes and waterfalls.

Our last section of the tour will be the rolling streets and citycapes of Seattle. In Seattle we will capture the waterfront against the backdrops of Mount Rainier and the towering skyscrapers.

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 Justin Minns.

While on location you will receive dedicated one-to-one tuition to help hone your landscape photography skills.  Justin will offer guidance on both the technical and creative aspects of landscape photography and always be at hand to provide feedback on your photographs.  At each location we visit Robert will make suggestions and offer advice on how to create wow factor images.

Your tutor for this workshop is Justin Minns. Justin is a professional landscape photographer, best known for his atmospheric images of East Anglia. His work is all about using the best light and conditions to capture the spirit of a location and he is regularly commissioned to produce these images for the National Trust.

Justin’s photography and articles have been widely published in books and magazines including Amateur Photographer, Outdoor Photography, PhotoPlus, Photo Technique and Practical Photography and he is currently working on his first book, a guide to photographing East Anglia.

His work has also been recognised in several competitions, notably five commendations in Landscape Photographer of the Year with his images having appeared on the cover of the prestigious awards book twice.

We have teamed up with Travel Counsellors who will be able to assist in any flight travel arrangements you require and make sure you meet up with the tour at the times advised.
