Announcing William Neill Private Yosemite Workshops

I am excited to announce my new Yosemite Private Workshops. Yosemite National Park is a photographer’s haven, a masterpiece in stone full of classic scenes and intimate landscapes.  Come join William Neill, author and photographer of William Neill’s Yosemite Volume One, and photographer of Yosemite: The Promise of Wildness for a private workshop in Yosemite National Park. William is also a long-time contributor to Outdoor Photographer magazine for the past 15 years in his regular On Landscape column. He has lived in or next to the park for 35 years, and he will share with you his extensive knowledge, experience and philosophy on photography and Yosemite.  William is know for his unique imagery of the park.

“Your session with me will be personalized for your individual needs, whether you are a beginner or an advanced photographer. The focus will be on developing your personal perspective with instruction on both technique as well as how to develop your vision as an artist.

I worked at The Ansel Adams Gallery as staff photographer for five years while Ansel was alive, during which time I was strongly influenced by Ansel and the photographers surrounding him.  I will share stories from knowing Ansel, and other inspirational photographers that guide my photographs.”

For more information, see the Yosemite Private Workshops page for detail, including Prices and Instructional Content Options.

I look forward to working with new students, and helping my past students, to push their photography to new heights! Let me know if you have any questions, and if you have potential dates we can schedule your session.

Kind Regards,

William Neill
