This eight-day photo tour features Bandon and Florence, OR, where you'll photograph sea stacks, sea stars, sunsets and old growth forest, as well as sweeping sand dunes and expansive beaches and ocean views. Oregon's scenic Pacific Coast offers countless opportunities for photographers. From huge ancient volcanic rocks to soft green lichen dripping from cedar branches, we'll take you where you can experience "all this and more," as they say.

Plus, what makes this a photo tour a "plus" is the critique we offer on the last day of the tour. Our critiques are geared toward constructive, educational feedback. Many of our participants tell us they learn more about how to create great images during our critiques  than they have learned in other workshops.

Accommodations -

In Bandon, we'll be based at the Sunset Oceanfront Resort, located directly across the street from the beach and some of the best sea stacks in Oregon.

In Florence, we'll stay at the River House Inn, located on the river and within walking distance to downtown Florence.

Upon registering for the photo tour, you'll be provided with detailed information about the lodgings and how to make reservations using our group rates at both locations. Participants are responsible for booking their own rooms and following the hotel's policies.

Hiking and Exertion -

There isn't much need for hiking unless you choose to do so, as most locations are a short distance from parking areas. Grounds may be uneven or sandy at some locations. Days can be long, so participants need to have stamina for a day in the field, particularly should the opportunity for a good sunrise and sunset occur on the same day.

Transportation -

Participants are responsible for their own transportation during the photo tour, as well as getting to Bandon, Florence, and returning to your point of origin. We encourage car pooling during the photo tour when possible.

Trip Insurance -

Trip insurance is highly recommended in the case you need to cancel at the last minute due to family emergency and/or illness. Our cancellation policy is below. Each hotel has its own cancellation policy, which you are responsible to be aware of and to follow.

Cancellations -

Cancellations received prior to May 1, 2020 will receive a full refund, minus a $25 processing fee. Refunds will be paid to the participant by check from Saucier Photography and will be mailed within seven days of the cancellation notice.

Cancellations received after May 1, 2020 will necessitate forfeiture of the $200 deposit. The balance of the registration fee will be paid to the participant by check from Saucier Photography and will be mailed to the participant within seven days of the cancellation notice.

Cancellations received after June 15, 2020 will not be eligible for a refund or credit of the registration fee.
