Fall Falls In The UP 2022

Michigan Upper Peninsula

October 2-6, 2022

If you like to photograph waterfalls then you’ll love the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Bond Falls, Lake Of The Clouds, Presque Isle, Laughing Whitefish Falls,Potawatomi Falls, there are more than 300 waterfalls in the UP of Michigan, making it a premier location for waterfall photography. Our photographic locations will accommodate a wide range of physical abilities. Most locations do not require extensive physical exertion if not desired. One-on-one instruction throughout the tour will be provided and group and/or individual reviews of work will be offered too.


This workshop is primarily a field shooting workshop. While there are no classroom sessions I am engaging you in one on one tutorials and instruction in the field. My primary emphasis while in the field is to make sure that you are able to get awesome images.

Topics of instruction in the field include:, camera technique, proper metering for proper exposure, how to read histograms, composition for impact, filtering for water motion effects, waterfall and landscape photography techniques, and much more.


The workshop will begin on October 2 at 3:00 pm in Ontenogon Michigan.

There is not a fixed itinerary for each day as our locations and times will vary somewhat depending upon the light and atmospheric conditions. We will start each day early and typically shoot late into the evening. There will be time for rest during the mid-day if needed.

The workshop ends on the morning of October 6 near Munising Michigan.
