Creating Unique Images in Iconic Locations

Seeking to expand your portfolio beyond grabbing “the shot” where every photographer stands at the turnout along the park road? Sherry Pincus, photographer and veteran backpacker, will share strategies for accomplishing just that. While Sherry has visited many remote backcountry locations, she has also taken note of the more easily accessible spots that will give you the off the beaten path feel. She’ll also discuss tips for researching destinations, safety, and traveling with camera gear.

Domestic locations include gems from the Grand Tetons, Death Valley, the Olympics, Acadia National Park and Mount Rainier. International destinations, such as the Tour du Mont Blanc in Europe, Lake O’Hara in the Canadian Rockies, and magical locations on the South Island of New Zealand have to be experienced to be believed.

In her over 35 years of travel and backpacking experiences, Sherry has been sharing the experience of the glories of the natural world with others. Last summer, Sherry worked with National Parks at Night on a backpacking and night photography tour of the Olympic Peninsula. Sherry is a certified Wilderness First Responder, a chef, and together with her husband has raised two backpacking, nature-loving children.
