Rhapsody In Light Photo Workshops

Presented by Joseph Thomas



If you want better photos…

Wildflowers of Colorado Workshop: Crested Butte in the heart of the Rockies, and known as “The Wildflower Capital of Colorado,” will be the epicenter of this workshop.

Put better stuff in front of your lens!

My photography workshops are specially designed to advance your artistry and arouse your creativity. We’ll be exploring some of the most breathtaking locations in the Rocky Mountain West where endless photographic possibilities will inspire your imagination! And while emphasis is on elevating your creative vision, substantial technical guidance on image capture and post-processing will be offered to help you reach your highest potential.

Rocky Mountain Stars & Meteors Workshop: Photographing the dazzling Perseid Meteor Shower in Rocky Mountain National Park will be one of the highlights of this nocturnal workshop.

rhapsody ˈrapsədē/noun

  1. a musical composition suggestive of improvisation.
  2. an ecstatic expression of feeling or enthusiasm.

There is a kind of music that abounds in nature. Its rhythms, harmonies, themes, and motifs give rise to glorious compositions – a rhapsody in light! We’ve all had the experience of witnessing these magical moments in nature while failing to adequately portray them in our photographs. What can be done to ensure you never miss another magic moment again? Rather than buying the latest lens, or a camera with a few more megapixels, invest in yourself by attending a Rhapsody in Light photo workshop. I will give you the knowledge and skills needed to capture the beauty before your eyes with visually stunning results.

The abundant wildlife in Rocky Mountain National Park never disappoints!
