I AM MORE THAN READY TO LEAD!

My workshops are designed to give you access to the most amazing locations with the best atmosphere and for me to provide world class instruction (as much or as little as requested) on and off shooting times enabling you to have the adventure of a lifetime all while increasing your photography skills and producing incredible images! - Mark Metternich

"If you have ever wondered what it’s like to go on one of Mark's workshops… let me tell you, it is a FANTASTIC adventure, and one you will never forget!!!" - Candace Watson

With almost 20 years of experience leading photography workshops and with over 80% of my clients returning for ongoing workshops, The ULTIMATE Cypress Dreams and Waterways of the South Photography Workshops is designed to be an incredible adventure one you will remember for your entire life!

The approach is, to literally chase the light with improvisation, flexibility and intelligent response to the changing weather conditions.

A flexible itinerary will be implemented as we allow the weather/lighting conditions to dictate our movements.

Note that all the desires of the group are always taken into very careful consideration as well as the changing weather patterns so that you are in the very best locations at the very best times for the best opportunities for outstanding lighting and dramatic imagery.

GENERAL ITINERARY

Please note that over the years I have found a certain percentage of participants that desire a linear-type itinerary outlining where we will be each day, and at what time we will be doing what… I conscientiously choose to not lead my workshops this way!

My main goal is always to put you in the best locations at the very best times for the very best opportunities for the best imagery. The only way this can happen most often is by being flexible and intelligently reacting to the weather conditions. Due to seasonal and weather changes, locations will be decided on a day to day basis, possibly, occasionally subject to change at a given moment.

If you want to check out my recommendations from my previous clients just email me and I'll give email you a list and would be happy to answer any questions you may have about being on one of my workshops!
