What a great experience at Ricketts Glen State Park for a workshop with an awesome instructor, Chris Byrne. It was great getting our feet wet (and getting kicked out of the water!), getting down, and he just opened up himself for us to ask him basically anything. It was all a great learning experience for me, from how to handle the equipment a bit better, what he looks for when shooting, processing, and other pointers. It was great being able to show each other our work as we went about the day, too.
We spent the entire day there, basically. We hiked from about 7 am to 4:30, and I was beat. Tired, sore, and a bit hungry. It was awesome. - Desha U. May 21, 2017

In July of 2017 I took Chris Byrnes Glacier National Park Workshop. I had never been to Glacier, so I was very excited to go and see all the beauty that this landscape would provide. I was not disappointed. The sunrises and sunsets were stunning, and the wildlife was more than I anticipated. We saw quite a few bear and Moose which was terrify and fascinating at the same moment. At some points I felt like I was in a Disney movie, especially when a deer wandered down a mountain trail we were set up on and stood above us, framed by the trees and mountain behind it, cocked its head and looked at me inquisitively as I photographed it, no more than 10 yards away! The chipmunks and gophers were adorable. And there were waterfalls everywhere. Two of the hikes were a bit challenging for someone who is not used to mountains, but I was able to make it and glad I did. The views were unbelievable. Chris is a fantastic and patient instructor who takes his time with each student to make sure they understand how to get the shots they are looking for. I highly recommend this workshop, and any that Chris offers. --Julie Amador
