Landscape Photography Adventure – Oregon Coast

Workshop Meeting Point ~ Portland, Oregon
May 17-20, 2018

The rugged Oregon coast is a photographer’s dream come true. We will be taking in a wide array of landscapes, seascapes, and opportunities as we explore the Oregon Coast. From stunning seascapes to historic lighthouses, this trip will have it all.

Each day we’ll journey down the coast and venture further into the rich environments that make up the unique world of Oregon. From grand wide panoramas to intimate macros, this Photography Adventure will be packed with opportunities to learn, grow, and create amazing images and memories.

Workshop Leader

This workshop is led by Kent Weakley. Kent is an award-winning, lifelong photographer who shoots commercial and landscape photography. He also specializes in infrared black and white digital photography. Among many honors, Kent has won the Fuji International Photo Competition and has also earned a National Gold Addy Award for photography in advertising. Kent’s biggest joy is traveling and sharing photography knowledge. His enthusiasm is hard to miss and often contagious.



Day 1

We will meet at the Portland Airport by mid to late afternoon. Together we will start our Photography Adventure by heading west to spend the evening on the coast.

Day 2 and 3

Each morning will start with an opportunity to capture morning light, followed by a light breakfast. The driving will be all taken care of for you. Sit back, relax and get ready to shoot, as we wind our way down the coast. Lighthouses, massive rock formations, landscapes, plant life, and the occasional wildlife will grab our attention and require numerous stops throughout the day.

Together we will eat lunch and dinner each day at local eateries, sharing experiences and laughs before we continue to create more images. Around mid-afternoon we will check into our hotel for that evening, followed by dinner and an evening shoot.

Day 4

This morning we will travel back up the coast and capture a few more images before we continue to the Portland Airport around noon and wrap up our fabulous time together in this amazing location. Everyone’s travel departure times will dictate how much time we have before returning to the airport.

*Please note that this itinerary will most definitely change. The times we specifically visit certain areas will depend on timing, weather, and road conditions. I will be putting all efforts into getting the most iconic photo opportunities possible, and this will most likely create itinerary changes. There is mile upon mile of stunning scenes for us to create amazing images. While I can’t guarantee we will have access to every location intended, we will have incredible views continuously at our disposal.
