Lassen Association will offer two digital photography workshops in Lassen Volcanic National Park with renowned photographer, Bob Grace. The park’s Manzanita Lake area will provide the scenic beauty for the first course scheduled July 9-11. The second workshop offered August 27- 29 will be in the Warner Valley and Drakesbad area.

Understanding composition and lighting, sunrise shoot including camera shooting techniques, Photoshop demonstrations, shooting and processing panoramas, and image review and critique are just a few techniques that will be offered during this course.

Following a thirty-year career as a California State Park Ranger, Bob Grace began working as a professional assignment photographer in 2000. His work has appeared in books, magazines, newspapers, and websites as well as in several prestigious exhibitions. During his years as a California State Park Ranger he developed his own personal sense of environmental place while gaining knowledge of local flora, fauna, and resource protection. He brings many levels of skill and experience photographing the natural and cultural world to his outdoor classroom.

The 29 mile Main Park Road was constructed between 1925 and 1931, just 10 years after Lassen Peak erupted. Near Lassen Peak the road reaches 8512 feet, making it the highest road in the Cascade Mountains. It is not unusual for 40 feet of snow to accumulate on the road near Lake Helen.
