Glenn Randall's Digital Landscape Photography Workshops
I will retire from teaching both group and private workshops on December 31, 2022
I’ve decided to retire from teaching photography workshops on December 31st, 2022. The reasons are many. My wife Cora will be retiring from teaching courses at the University of Colorado at the same time. She will continue to do research part-time but will have more time available for travel and other activities. I want to have more free time available as well. While neither Cora nor I currently face any life-threatening medical issues, we both feel a need to prioritize maintaining our health so we can enjoy an active retirement. Most importantly, I’m only willing to spend a certain number of days per year away from Cora. Every day I spend teaching is one less day available to work on my own photographs as deep into the wilderness as my aging knees will take me. For all these reasons, it’s time to downshift after 43 years of full-time freelance writing, photography, and teaching.
Retirement from teaching won’t mean retirement from photography altogether. I intend to continue offering prints for sale through my website and at Art Mart, the brick-and-mortar store I work with in Boulder. I also intend to continue adding new images to my website, posting new pieces to my blog, and writing articles for Outdoor Photographer. There may even be another book project in my future. In short, I'm not retiring, I'm rewiring.
I am deeply grateful to all of you who have attended my workshops over the past 20 years, many of you more than once. It has been a pleasure working with all of you. I hope I have been able to advance your mastery of the art, science, and craft of great landscape photography. My thanks to all of you!
I will continue to offer private workshops in Rocky Mountain National Park through the end of 2022.
Here's what one student had to say about her workshop.
"I just wanted to tell you again how pleased I was with your workshop and how much I learned! The format was just right with the mixture of lecture and shooting, but one of the most valuable pieces of all of this was your continued hands-on and individual attention to each of us throughout the entire workshop. Answering any and all questions was direct, succinct, and thorough – even with all of the different skill and knowledge levels that the participants exhibited. Having the handouts for study and reference now that we are home is a tremendous benefit. While we were out shooting, your dedication to see what we were shooting and help us achieve good photos with tips and suggestions was exceptional. The help with camera settings, computer situations, and composition tips was way beyond any other workshop that I have attended!" Linda Haehnle, student in June 2019 Shooting the Stars workshop.

Recommendations from the CDC on covid precautions for group workshops are evolving rapidly. All 2022 workshops will be conducted in accordance with current CDC recommendations and local, state, and federal mandates. I strongly encourage all students to get vaccinated if they aren't already. Unvaccinated students will be asked to wear a mask in the classroom and will not carpool with me or other students. If the pandemic worsens again and makes it impossible to conduct a workshop safely, I will refund all money paid.
Private Photography Workshops
Get the personal attention you deserve! I offer private photography workshops on all aspects of daytime and nighttime landscape photography. These sessions can include guided photography sessions in Rocky Mountain National Park, portfolio reviews both in-person and online, and advice on turning pro. I also offer instruction on using Lightroom LrC (the desktop version, also called Lightroom Classic) and Photoshop CC to optimize landscape photographs and prepare them for printing on your inkjet printer or at a service bureau. I customize the length and content of each workshop to be as helpful as possible to each student. Only you and the people you invite will attend your workshop. Private workshops are appropriate for all skill levels, from complete beginner to emerging professional.
