Yosemite National Park is reminiscent of names like John Muir and Ansel Adams. It is an icon of American Mountain Scenery and one of the world’s first National Parks. 


The place becomes a wonderland in winter. Everything turns white and the landscape presents numerous opportunities for artistic photography. The workshop is scheduled at the specific time of the year when firefalls occur. The horsetail fall to the right of El capitan at the time of sunset seems as if fire is falling down the cliff. (Please note: sometimes weather conditions don't let this phenomenon occur). 


Sheer granite cliffs, Some of highest waterfalls, tranquil merced river all come together to make America's most beautful landscape and presents numerous photography opportunities. We recommend staying within the valley at Yosemite Lodge as it is conveniently close to the main locations.
