Oregon Photography Workshop

Bordered by the Pacific Ocean to its west and the Oregon Coast Range to the east, and stretches approximately 362 miles (583 km) from the California state border in the south to the Columbia River in the north.

Join us as we photograph one of the most exciting and dynamic coastal regions of the country. Our focus will be to photograph scenic beaches, a quaint harbor, a bridge, lighthouses and some other great spots. 

A 6  days intensive workshop on location, you will learn the importance of the light and how to use it at your favor, how to shoot layers in landscape, how to setup you gear and also you’ll find out the tips and tricks to shooting great long exposure landscape photographs. Get first hand advice on your shots during the session, and find out how you can take your photo skills to the next level.

This workshop is geared for the intermediate to advanced photographer. However, beginners with a working knowledge of their camera can gain a lot of experience and instruction*. Each participant is assisted at their level. We focus on helping participants create the most appealing compositions of each location we visit. We also delve into extensive discussions on equipment, exposure, metering, filters, and personal tips. 

Your Instructors and Guides

Improve your photography skills with one-on-one training from professional photographers. Specializing in small-group, we always include plenty of time for practice and questions while exploring the wild coastline.

Workshop is 5 days 4 nights. We meet up the night before the workshop begins usually at a restaurant to "break the ice" and get to know each other and discuss possible plans of locations depending on weather research, desires of each client for workshop, discussion of any additional supplies we will need to pick up before workshop begins at sunrise.

Photographing will be sunrise and sunset during the workshop dates to account for the most dramatic light with possible opportunities in between during travels to each new location.

We will usually be able to eat at a restaurant for breakfast(s) / lunch(s) after shooting sunrise and some dinners. Other meals will be eaten on the road and we will pick up a cooler and non-perishables on the road.

For possible private workshops around those dates or further questions email me at ivan.farca@gmail.com


A dSLR or mirrorless camera : The criteria for the kind of work we’ll be doing is a camera that can be operated completely manually to ensure we get the best exposure with interchangeable lenses allowing us to cover a range of focal lengths

Tripod: We’ll often be shooting in low light so a tripod is an absolutely essential piece of equipment.

A cable release: This allows us to trip the camera shutter without touching the camera, which can cause movement blur during longer exposures.

A wide angle lens :For some of the locations a wide angle lens really is essential if you want to get those epic landscapes and street shoots.

A telephoto lens : A telephoto also compresses the landscape and is great for shooting misty scenes.

A mid-range zoom lens :there may be a couple of occasions when the zooms listed above are too wide or too long, and a mid-range zoom in the 24-70 mm (18-55 mm on a crop sensor) is perfect.

Comfortable waterproof walking boots or Fishing Waders :While we won’t be doing any long hikes we’ll certainly be doing some walking over uneven ground.

Windproof jacket and warm top : t’s a little chilly early in the morning before the sun has come up, so a windproof and waterproof outer shell jacket over a warm top will help keep you comfortable.

Laptop : workshop does not cover post processing lessons, but if you want to have time to download and work on your shoots its a good idea to bring your laptop.
