Travel Photography: Capturing Grandeur on Camera
Three In-Person Sessions
Wed., Mar. 13, 20, 2024, 6:30-8:30 pm MT
Photo Shoot, Sat., Mar. 16, 9-11 am

Travel has always held a special place in our hearts. Think of a place you’ve been and it suddenly appears in your mind. You might even think of specific photos you took there. Perhaps some of those shots are hanging in your home.

“Great images can help trigger our memory for the things we’ve seen, felt and experienced,” says Scott Dressel-Martin, professional photographer. “We can view and share those images for years to come as a way to relive our lives and our travels.”

But coming home with a great set of images that invoke the emotional experiences of traveling can be challenging. In this class, Dressel-Martin works with you to explore new thought processes, techniques and tools to get the best photographs of your adventures. Whether it’s a weekend away or the trip of a lifetime, he can help you prepare your gear and your mind to get the best possible images while traveling. Examine everything from camera and lens selection, packing and hauling sensitive photo equipment, battery management, archiving in the field, telling a great visual story and sharing your work when you return. Dressel-Martin is a passionate and informative teacher who is always ready to share his knowledge and experience.

Please note, this class is a total of six hours: two hours in the classroom with lectures, discussions, and questions and answers; two hours of photo shooting in the field that includes hands-on assistance, answers to specific camera questions and instructor guidance; and two hours in class with critiques and feedback. The class decides the photo shoot location after the first session but is limited to the Denver Metro area.

Scott Dressel-Martin is the author of Light Grows the Garden: The Denver Botanic Gardens. He is the official photographer of the Denver Botanic Gardens and he also helps a select group of institutions promote their missions and tell relevant and moving stories. As a photographer and filmmaker, Dressel-Martin has worked around the world. He began his career in photojournalism and has been published internationally.
