Photography workshop in Glacier National Park with David Marx

******This workshop is postponed until Fall 2018.  

Check back for details in Spring 2018******

September 15-17, 2017 


This is a great opportunity for participants of any skill level to learn the intricacies of wilderness photography in scenic Glacier National Park. Out in the field at first and last light, participants shoot photos of fall colors, lakes and streams, mountain-filled skylines, and burned areas, as well as frost-lined leaves and morning-chilled insects.

The Workshop is an opportunity to experience wilderness with a lens: focusing on light, color, form, and composition. The cost is $95 and includes instruction, transportation, camping and dinners. 

The workshop is led by David Marx. David has been teaching digital photography since 2002 and has lived in the Glacier National Park area since 1998. His photography has been featured in publications like Outside, Backpacker, Travel Montana, and Skiing Magazine.  His commercial work can be found on the Whitefish Mountain Resort website, in publications from the Rocky Mountain School of Photography, and for sale at iStock and Veer images online.
