Wine & Photography Workshops

Do you love wine?

Do you love doing photography?

What if your two loves, photography and wine, collided?!


Imagine having backdoor access to select wineries in Washington, Oregon and British Columbia (Canada). Imagine a weekend of wine tasting and learning about it with your own personal wine expert. How about dinner in the private wine cellar, with specially selected wine pairings to go with it.

Sounds good right?

Next, imagine improving your photography skills, in and around the wineries with a professional photography instructor there to teach you new tricks and help you on the fly. Access to private rooms, ones the regular tours don’t go, a photo shoot with the wine maker himself, or after sunset access to the vineyard are just a few of the things you may get to experience.

That’s what we’ve put together for you

Darlene was very receptive to working with individuals as well as the group and tried to tailor the material to suit individuals wants and needs. All in all a very enjoyable weekend. Brian Hayward

Be rested and ready because you are going to learn your camera better than you thought possible and also get a gallery of shots that surpass anything you ever imagined being able to take! Dara Choy

Darlene was knowledgeable and easy to work with. The workshop helped me be aware of, and use more of my camera’s capabilities and the way I view a scene before taking a photograph.
Larry Flemming

Andy, Whether it has been a visual exploration of the harvest season through your amazing images, or a verbal history or introduction to a new region or brand that I might never have found on my own, I have valued your commitment to building this young and thriving industry with your passion, your knowledge and your expertise. You have inspired me to further my own education so that I can be a bridge and benefit to the community we are both so impassioned by.Kristine Bono
