Join photographer Jason Weingart on a two night adventure, as we photograph stunning Texas wildflowers such as bluebonnets and paintbrush, under the brilliant Texas night sky.

The western half of the Texas Hill Country has some incredible dark skies, with this workshop being hosted during the climatological peak of wildflower season.

This intimate workshop is limited to 8 guests.

We spend months scouting locations leading up to the peak of bluebonnet season. We know all of the best spots and how to create compelling photographs of them under the night sky.  

The moon will be nearly half full, providing ample light for brilliant night time photographs. Then it will set after midnight, allowing us to capture the Milky Way over wildflowers.

WHAT’S INCLUDED?

  • You will be part of an intimate group with tons of one-on-one instruction by Jason Weingart.

  • Registration covers your transportation to shooting locations.

  • The cost of your lodging for both nights is included

  • Personalized portfolio review by Jason

  • Bonus! You will be given access to Jason's video tutorials taking you through all of the editing processes covered!

LODGING LOCATIONS FOR THE WORKSHOP

Lodging is included in the cost of the workshop. Due to the nature of bluebonnets, which bloom in different locations each year, accommodations will not be made in advance of seven days of the workshop. In the event of poor weather, this will also allow us some flexibility with selecting shooting locations. As always we only use clean lodging locations.

We will depart from Comfort Suites NW Lakeline
13681 U.S. 183 Austin, TX 78750 at 4pm on the day of the workshop.
