Photography Workshop with Jon Mullen
Sat. June 23, 2018
3:30 p.m. – 9:30 pm
Free and open to the public, registration required.
Whether you are a beginning, intermediate, or a well-seasoned photographer, this workshop will offer you a chance to sharpen your outdoor photography skills. Lighter on technical detail, this class will focus on how to put yourself in the right place at the right time to capture stunning images. We’ll spend a couple of hours discussing those concepts before heading out for a short evening hike to put your camera and legs to use. Our muse and subject will be the beautiful Crystal River Valley and the West Elks from the vantage point of Huntsman Ridge. The hike, beginning from the top of McClure Pass and climbing steadily, will be about 1.5 miles each way, with several steep sections. You will be rewarded by incredible views. Please be prepared for a hike, with comfortable hiking shoes, poles (if you use them) and a headlamp for the way down.
Wilderness Workshop is excited to collaborate with photographer Jon Mullen, based in Boulder, Colorado. Jon’s work is dedicated to capturing images that help tell the stories of our threatened wild places. His award-winning photography has appeared in national and international publications – including Time, The Times of London, The Guardian, Mother Jones, and Outdoor Photographer – and has supported work by the EPA, The Nature Conservancy, and The Wilderness Society. You can also find his work at jonmullen.com. His photos of a backpacking trip into the Thompson Divide with Wilderness Workshop adorn our website and the walls at our office in the Third Street Center in Carbondale.
