And how about this for a unique Point Lobos experience: we will have our first live model and studio lighting set up in a gorgeous setting so you can experience the thrill of model photography.  We’ll help you dial in the perfect camera settings, then you’ll use our wireless remote triggers to trip the lighting as you take one-of-a-kind images of our fun, friendly model.  We will have a second model at a different location on the shoreline where we will focus on portrait photography using flash (strobe) and natural lighting. It's going to be incredible!

Throughout our tour, we’ll provide hands-on, practical instruction and proven techniques to help you capture the unparalleled beauty of this fascinating coastal gem, and unlock your potential as a photographer.
