This coming winter we are pleased to offer two winter photography field seminars for the first time! Winter at Mono Lake is a very special season, and both these seminars will combine the snowy, foggy, icy photographic conditions with the full and nearly-full moon lighting up the nighttime landscape.

The Forgotten Season • January 13–15, 2017 •
Full Moon in February • February 10–12, 2017 •

Registration will open on Saturday, October 1 for Mono Lake Committee members only, and on November 1 for non-members. To sign up, call (760) 647-6595 or register online.

Both seminars will coincide with full moon rises, increasing the photographic opportunities at sunset and after dark. We are confirming the traditional Saturday dinner for both seminars, catered by Linda Dore, chef at Lee Vining’s newest restaurant, Epic Cafe. Detailed seminar itineraries are coming soon, and you can email me if you have questions.

Joe Decker will be leading both seminars—he is a longtime Mono Lake Committee supporter, accomplished photographer, and experienced workshop leader. A veteran of many Mono Basin winter photography seminars, and with residencies in Antarctica and Iceland, Joe’s experience will allow participants to take advantage of many winter photographic opportunities.

Come prepared for cold winter weather. This seminar will take place regardless of weather or road conditions. There will be no refunds due to weather. Cost is for tuition only; participants must arrange their own accommodations. This seminar is limited to 15 participants.
