Napa Valley Photography Workshops & Tours
Napa is synonymous with premium wines, world-class cuisine, and spectacular scenery, and Source Photography’s Napa Valley photography workshops immerse you in the history and culture of this famous California wine region. Along the way, we give you friendly, practical instruction that will help you capture beautiful photographs and tell your Napa Valley story.
Napa has been a favorite of Californians since the first rustic spas were built in the 1800s to draw travelers from San Francisco to the bubbling natural hot springs in Calistoga, at the north end of the valley. Though wineries have been operating in the area since the late 19th century – some continuously (and legally) through Prohibition – Napa’s international renown came in 1976, when a Napa Valley chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon beat France's best competing wines in the famous Judgment of Paris tasting. Overnight, that seismic shift in the wine industry turned sleepy Napa Valley into a worldwide tourist destination.
Exclusive Winery Access
Our Napa Valley photography workshops feature exclusive access to wineries, trails, and locations not generally open to the public, and provide you with a unique perspective on classic wine country photo opportunities. We drift on the meticulously manicured grounds of historic wineries built from hand-cut stones, with their decaying, decades-old wooden outbuildings and antique farm equipment standing vigil over the vineyards. We take you into the vineyards to capture unending rows of grapevines curving their way along gently rolling hills, and close-ups of juicy, plum-colored grape clusters hanging under a canopy of green leaves. We visit ultra-modern facilities with amazing architecture, and use fantastic natural backdrops for shooting intimate details like wine bottles and glasses full of their liquid awesomeness. You’ll photograph broad scenic landscapes with the oak-studded Mayacamas and Vaca mountain ranges in the background, capture poignant moments of wine country life along quaint backstreets, and create picture postcards at historic parks like the Bale Grist Mill. And keep an eye out for the occasional fleet of hot air balloons floating above.
During our Napa Valley photography workshops, our professional photography instructors will guide you through the process of correctly setting up your camera and adjusting it to account for changing lighting conditions.

We will set everything up for you ahead of time, show you which settings to use on your camera, and the next thing you know you’re adding incredible model shots to your portfolio.
