The geography and culture of West Texas is beautiful and unique. Filled with rocky peaks, wild cactus, and desert grasslands, this region is a wonder to capture with the photographic eye. Precision Camera is teaming up with photographer Mandy Lea to offer an adventurous workshop capturing the beautiful landscape of West Texas. Mandy will guide you to locations throughout Big Bend National Park including the Chisos Basin, Santa Elena Canyon and the Rio Grande River. In addition to exploring the National Park, you will also have the opportunity to see the surrounding areas of the Terlingua Ghost Town and the Big Bend Ranch State Park.

In addition to helping you understand camera settings, composition and lighting tips while in the field, we will end the workshop with classroom time to go over tips for editing and an image review of the weeks work.

The fee includes the workshop only. Transportation, lodging and food are not included. Once you are registered, you will receive an email with itinerary and details prior to the workshop.

    Don’t let Mandy’s youthful appearance fool you – she is a very experienced landscape photographer. She is also dedicated and thorough – she arrived days early to scout out the locations to insure that our shoots went well (and so that she could get there in the dark – critical for our sunrise shoots). While she probably thought she was herding cats, she always got the 12 of us to our locations in time for us to fumble with our gear in the dark, pre-sunrise hour. Following our sunrise shoots, we visited a variety of locations in Big Bend NP and SP, shooting grand vistas and smaller details. The days ended with a sunset shoot, and moon permitting, a few Milky Way shoots. We concluded our excursion with a thoughtful (and helpful) photo review. All together it was a wonderful experience. I’d love to shoot with Mandy anytime, anywhere. David S.
