This class will teach you how to get more from your smart phone in nature photography!

It starts with my iPhone based classroom presentation, plus a question and answer session from 10am – noon. We will then meet outside at 1pm, for a 2-hour photo shoot at Grassy Waters Preserve, “The Everglades in West Palm Beach.” Advice and tips will be provided during the photo shoot, based on the situations and weather we encounter, and I will gladly offer students suggestions on improving their images.

This class is for all levels of smart phone photographers and is limited to 20 students. Students should have a basic understanding of their phone’s camera operation. Our unique nature photography classes maximize teaching, utilize more Preserve facilities and locations, minimizes travel time to locations, and can go rain or shine.

Master Class led by Raymond Gehman
at Grassy Waters Preserve


This class will help take you to the next level in nature photography in a perfect setting, the Everglades in West Palm Beach. National Geographic photographer Raymond Gehman will teach you how to evaluate and capture photographic situations, utilize your camera’s capabilities, and choose lenses and settings like a professional. The 24 square mile Grassy Waters Preserve provides the original Everglades landscape as your canvas, and offers opportunities to photograph rare and endangered species.

The class starts Saturday with a classroom presentation by Raymond. We then go into the Preserve’s Restoration Area, normally closed to the public, for a sunset photo shoot. Sunday begins with an early morning photo shoot at another Preserve location. During the photo shoots Raymond will provide tips and advice based on the situations presented. Then it’s back indoors, for a critique of your work and recap of Raymond’s lessons.

This class is limited to 12 students and students should have a good understanding of their camera’s operation.

Raymond Gehman worked for National Geographic Society for 25 years, where he was awarded three magazine covers, and published numerous book and magazine articles. He is now a freelance photographer for National Geographic, fine art photographer, and teaches workshops in the U.S. and abroad. Raymond is the advisor to the Conservancy photography group and will judge the 2016 Grassy Waters Nature Photography Contest.

Our unique nature photography classes utilize more Preserve facilities and locations, minimize travel time to locations, and can go rain or shine.
