A variety of terrain will encountered, trails range from improved easy access, to forest paths, to uneven rock, due to the nature of waterfalls, it is often necessary to descend/ascend fairly steep and rocky stream banks. It is expected for all participants to be able to carry their own personal gear and water during the workshop.

Group size is limited, not only for a more favorable instructor to student ratio, but also to help minimize the human impact on the natural environments we will be photographing.
