A North Dakota Photo Tour

There is nothing like a road trip to excite your photographic sensibilities and invigorate your vision. North Dakota is the perfect place for a photographic road trip–wide open spaces, friendly people, beautiful sunsets, and incredible wildlife!

From the allure of abandoned homesteads to stunning prairie landscapes,  to the majestic natural beauty of Theodore Roosevelt National Park this workshop promises to deliver the photographic subject matter in spades!


This workshop is primarily a field shoot workshop. In this workshop, we will learn techniques that will give your images pizzazz and impact. We will explore landscape techniques and the use of filters. You will learn how to filter for extreme lighting conditions, including indoor and outdoor locations. We will experiment with light painting and how to get the most from natural light, as well as mixing light for interior locations. We will discuss the best approach for social documentation and shooting events like the native dancers.


We will be on the move throughout North Dakota. Our road trip will begin in Bottineau North Dakota and end in Bismarck North Dakota. Bottineau is about 80 miles NE of Minot ND. If you are planning to fly you will want to fly into Bismark where we can pick you up and at the end of the workshop drop you off.

We can provide transportation from Bismarck to Bismarck for the entire workshop. If you drive we can arrange for a safe place to park your vehicle in the Bismarck area.

Bottineau is approximately an 8-hour drive from Mpls MN.
