Transportation and meals:

Meals are not included, but my groups generally enjoy eating together, as it provides yet another opportunity to exchange ideas, tips and general discussion of our love of the photographic arts.   Transportation to/from workshop location is the responsibility of workshop participants.  Participants will rideshare/caravan  to and from shooting locations.

Those flying in initially will either fly into Portland or Eugene, Oregon. Airfare is usually less expensive into Portland but Eugene is closer. Most opt for Portland but choice is yours based on your needs. Portland is about 4 1/2 hr drive to Bandon, but it is a beautiful drive along Hwy 101. Eugene is about 2 3/4 hrs. Again, we will be carpooling as necessary during the workshop.
