The Palouse is among the most photogenic areas in the world, dotted with rural towns nestled among undulating hills of green and yellow to magnificent pastoral vistas that continue as far as the eye can see. Tucked away in southeastern Washington and northeast Idaho is a majestic region of rolling fields known as the Palouse. This is rural American farming at its best, but the old landmarks and way of life are rapidly changing. Now is the time to see and photograph this iconic region. Subjects include rolling landscapes, dramatic clouds, rustic rural barns, abandoned vehicles and farm equipment and much more. The graceful rolling hills and scenic views are breathtaking. The crops rotate each year giving a fresh look each spring with bright rolling vistas of greens and yellow. Powerfull graphic images are commonly taken on this tour. Our tour is designed for peak spring colors. At first glance the Palouse appears deceptively easy to photograph, but with 3,000 square miles to explore you want a knowledgeable guide and professional photo instructor putting you in the right place at the right time. Otherwise, you spend your limited time driving around wondering where the iconic shots are instead of making great photos. We have over 50 locations GPS marked, so we can efficiently visit the best locations with the least amount of driving.

We'll headquarter our workshop at the Best Western Wheatland Inn, Colfax, WA where we have a block of rooms set aside at a special rate.

Food, lodging, and transportation not included.
