Autumn in the Missouri Ozarks

October 21 - 24, 2021

(Sold Out)

Join Craig McCord for 3 1/2 days of fantastic photography and hands-on field instruction in the beautiful autumn colors around old grist mills, cascades, and natural springs around Eminence, Missouri and the Ozark National Scenic Riverways. And we will try to find the wild horse herds that don't seem to mind photographers if you approach slowly and carefully.

Typical Shooting Locations include (but not limited) to:

  • Klepzig Mill

  • Alley Spring and Mill

  • Rocky Falls, Upper and Lower areas

  • Little Rocky Creek Shut-ins

  • Falling Spring Mill

  • Prairie Hollow Gorge

  • Welsh Spring

  • Wild horses of Shannon County (provided they cooperate)


This workshop will focus on hands-on field photography. You will be given personal attention to help you not only come away with memorable images, but also help you expand your knowledge and grow as a photographer and inspire your creative vision.  Some actual assignments will be encouraged focusing on certain techniques, e.g., macro and wide-angle. This workshop will include at least one image review session and discussion about composition, exposure, and how to gain control using manual camera settings.  Workflow techniques involving post processing in Lightroom and NIK and Luminar plugins will also be demonstrated.
