Join Instructors Tomas Alvarez, and Jay Grammond for three days of chasing Waterfalls & Landscapes on Minnesota's beautiful North Shore. We will be based in the Grand Marais area. The North Shore is rich in beautiful waterfalls and landscapes, and we aim to help you capture that beauty.
Prior to April 13th, we will meet virtually via Zoom, to start to get to know each other; and go over what to expect for weather; ground conditions; melt off; gear, etc.
Thursday, April 13th: We'll gather at the Outpost Motel, do introductions, and head out to our first location for some waterfall and landscape photography. This will be followed with dinner together somewhere local.
Friday, April 14th: Today will be a full day of discovering waterfalls and landscapes. This area is full of so much potential for us. We will find a spot for an optional lunch break; then head out to other locations. Once we are done for the day, we will again have a dinner together at a local business.
Saturday, April 15th: On this final morning together, we will get another fantastic Landscape, followed by breakfast (optional). After breakfast, we will hit one more waterfall on our way back towards Duluth and beyond (optional.)
About 3 weeks later, we will have a reunion via Zoom to go over editing images, and revisit the fun times had.

Tomas Alvarez is from Woodbury, Minnesota. His photography is his sanity - an escape from the daily grind. When he's not working as a software engineer, or with family, you'll find him - camera in hand, somewhere between Michigan's UP and the Black Hills of South Dakota. Listening to the waves of Lake Superior, watching leaves fall on a trail in deep Autumn, and witnessing the dawn of a new day are just a few of nature's gifts that keep him on his photographic journey.
