“I love photographing in the Olympic Peninsula and it seems like every time I am leaving I am wishing for more time to photograph in this beautiful region. So I have decided to provide an exclusive photography retreat which will not only grant me additional time in the field to teach, but also a more extended period of time to get to know each of the participants. I am really looking forward to the opportunity to photograph with a small group in one of my favorite places to visit.”
 - Art Wolfe

Workshop Details

For those who have been looking for a different, more intimate and intensive Olympic Peninsula experience—look no further! This photography retreat is designed with the avid photographer in mind who is looking to further develop and explore their talent. Be a part of a small group photographing together for five days in the cathedral-like Quinault Rainforest staying at the luxurious and historic Lake Quinault Lodge.

We decided to offer something a little bit different for this workshop and will be including a special printing demo. We have the newest state of the art printer from Epson and will not only show you how to calibrate your monitors, but will also show you how to achieve the best quality prints. By the time we are done with this demo you will know how to calibrate your monitor, print quality prints, and get to take home archival prints from your own collection.

Partners Welcome

For those of you that have partners that are not photographers, please note that couples are welcome! You may bring your spouce so they can help you enjoy the luxurious rooms that the beautiful Lake Quinault Lodge has to offer. They can join the group for meals and the final critique at the end of the workshop if they like as well.


Shooting schedules have the ability to be altered to effectively cater to the photographic desires of the group, as well as to adapt to changeable weather conditions.

Student Testimonials

John S.

“The workshop was the most intense, personal experience of any photo seminars/workshops I've attended... The review of technical basics like the 10 deadly sins plus the near genius demonstration by Art of the capabilities of Lightoom will allow me to continue to progress as a serious amateur.”

Cory Kitzan

“I want to thank you and Art, and the whole group, for a wonderful weekend. I learned so much! It was a great mixture of lecture, field work, and critiquing. It was physically and mentally challenging, and I loved it!”

Norton Johnson

"Going to Art Wolfe’s workshop is like going to a fine art appreciation class the way he approaches composition. Any artist/photographer would enjoy his stories on how he came about with the composition of many of his works. It was a joy to spend the three days with Art and his well qualified assistants! I plan on doing it again."
