During this tour we will photograph the entire process in the fields, while riding in combines and tractors, and at visits to the storage silos and grain elevators.
Along with the farm visits we will capture many other 'Palouse Treasures' along the way taking advantage of the changing light and cloud formations throughout the day.
Harvest is a time when farmers, hired hands and seasonal truck drivers are in full swing. This season provides photographers the opportunity to capture amazing patterns in the fields, dust billowing behind combines, and up close and personal vantage points during farm visits. The farmers have a large variety of equipment to bring their golden crops of wheat, barley, peas, lentil and garbs to market.
What to Expect - Typical Tour:
The first day starts at 2:00pm with an introductions and the presentation "My Heart Sings in the Palouse" highlighting the region's amazing photographic opportunities that lie ahead.That evening we continue to get acquainted during a group dinner at a local restaurant, wrapping up the day shooting sunset at a favorite location.
For the next three days we will start early in the morning sometimes before sunrise to capture the golden dawn and end after capturing a spectacular sunset. Since many days start at 4:30am and end at 9:30pm there is an afternoon break for naps, meals, processing and a photo sharing presentation. During one or more afternoons an optional iPhone/iPad course: Tricks to Professional iPhone Captures and Creatively Editing with the iPad will be offered by Teri Lou.
On the last day we arise early to capture a local favorite sunrise location and then sneak in a couple more barns and fields before returning at the hotel about 9am giving plenty of time for breakfast, packing and goodbyes.
"Teri Lou did a stellar job of juggling everyone's wishes and expectations with the practical logistics of guiding a diverse group around a vast area for the 4 day workshop. She's so cheerful and obliging and really knows her stuff. If you really want to squeeze the max out of the hours you have and be at the right place for the time of day and weather conditions (as far as humanly possible), Teri is definitely your "go-to girl". I had a blast. ” ~Vanessa
