Photographing America’s National Parks
From sea to shining sea, the national parks preserve some of the country’s most unique wilderness areas—a gift to nature photographers everywhere.
In this presentation, Chris Nicholson delves into what the park system offers to the photographer, and how to best research and prepare for a trip to explore the artistic opportunities within. Learn how to travel safely and photograph in the various environments found in the parks, including desert, alpine, forest and coastline. Many locations will be discussed, with special emphasis on Acadia, Death Valley, Everglades, Grand Teton, Great Smoky Mountains, Olympic, Shenandoah and Yellowstone. Discover where to find valuable information about iconic and secret photo locations, how to stay powered up in the outdoors, and ideas for supplementary gear that will make a photo project more productive and enjoyable.
Chris Nicholson has been a photographer for over 20 years, and is the author of Photographing National Parks (Sidelight Books, 2015). To see more of his images, go to his website, www.photographingnationalparks.com.
