Ouray Colorado in the Fall: Photography Workshop with John Fielder

The Ouray County Historical Society Offers a Wonderful Opportunity to Enjoy the Fall Foliage in Ouray Colorado 

Join Colorado’s premier landscape photographer, John Fielder, on a colorful 2-day workshop in the beautiful San Juan Mountains around Ouray County, where autumn delivers layer upon layer of color.  Fresh snow dusts peaks under blue skies, while golden aspens, yellow cottonwoods and orange willows add explosions of classic fall color to the high country. Follow John along his favorite back roads as vast ranches stretch out in magnificent valleys. Catch the sunset at 7pm, the fleeting blush of alpenglow on the Cimarron Mountains, and last light on aspens along Owl Creek Pass, followed by sunrise photography at 7am. Shoot historic mining ruins in the rugged terrain near Red Mountain Pass. This is your opportunity to discover the heart and soul of nature’s beauty in the incomparable San Juan Mountains with John.  

This Workshop offers a well-rounded and highly resourceful educational experience, appropriate for any level of outdoor photographer, but especially for beginners and intermediates. The program consists of a slide-based lecture on Saturday morning, field shoots in beautiful locations and interactive critique sessions on participants’ laptop computers. A full, yet comfortable, schedule optimizes field time and helps facilitate the absorption of invaluable, professional information. John will also discuss postprocessing of your images with computer programs such as Photoshop and Lightroom, and do live demonstrations of such.  No participant should feel that he or she is not qualified to attend. Limited enrollment gives all participants quality time with John Fielder and ensures that each person gets the specific instruction needed based on their individual level of experience. Fellow Breckenridge pro nature photographer, Gary Soles, assists John at most workshops, further ensuring individual attention. A group-based critique session allows students the chance to learn from others’ work, while personalized field instruction addresses the photographer’s needs related to both understanding camera functions and techniques of composition.

Transportation to field locations and some meals are included.  For more information, you can review the complete details of the photo workshop with John Fielder.
