Fall Falls In The UP - ColdSnap Photography

Fall Falls In The UP

Michigan Upper Peninsula

October 9-13

If you like to photograph waterfalls then you’ll love the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. This area is home to hundreds of waterfalls and a natural playground for photographers! We will bring you to some of the best waterfalls found in the lower 48 states. The workshop is timed for peak fall color and should delight any photographer. Porcupine Mountains, Presque Isle River, Lake of the Clouds, Bond Falls, Miner’s Falls, Tahquamenon Falls, the list goes on and on. This workshop will go from sun up to sun down. We will pack a lot of locations into the five day workshop. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to define your waterfall collection.

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 review 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.
