Focusing primarily on the opportunities in North and Central California, we will cover a wide variety of natural subjects from traditional landscapes to wildlife and macro subjects. Sharing some of my favorite locations, we will cover topics such as what locations are best for what type of photography, the best times to go, and how to get the most from these locations while exploring your own vision. We will also talk a bit about gear selection and what you might consider doing with your images after returning home. By the end, you will be inspired to get out and explore your home state with a focus on Nature!

Alyce Bender is a nature photographer, writer, educator, and adventurer. Camera in hand since childhood, her passion developed into a career after serving in the U.S. Air Force. Her passion for wildlife and the natural environment compels her to connect others with nature through both her visual art and in-field experiences that promote conservation, protection, and ethical photography.

She is a Tamron USA Ambassador, columnist for the Journal of Wildlife Photography, and her work has been featured in both group and solo gallery shows across the US. Bender leads photography adventures around the world to help beginner through advanced photographers explore and expand their personal vision and naturalist skills ethically. When not in the field, she offers a variety of educational programs both in person and virtually for photography organizations large and small.
