1 Night Hiking Retreat in Colorado Bend State Park!


What:

1 night hiking adventure in Colorado Bend State Park! Located  about two hours from Austin, this magical park has rivers, rolling hills, caves and kayaking. We will spend Saturday afternoon hiking and jumping in swimming holes( for those who want a polar plunge!). At night we will sit by the campfire, engage in guided discussion and eat amazing food from Curcuma. Sunday we will hike to Gorman falls, eat lunch in the wide open landscape picnic style and do gear demonstration for those that have questions. 

Campfire guest: 

For this adventure, Katherine Kiraly, owner of Reel Texas Productions, will be joining us on the trails! She will be interacting and teaching throughout the hikes and in our down time, focusing on the basics of shooting in the outdoors. This is a chance to hone your outdoor skills, beginner or professional. Throughout our hikes and at night we will all be able to collaborate and learn from each others personal and professional backgrounds. Each of you will leave with high quality photos of your experience. 

Topics covered include:

  •      light
  •      composition
  •      basic features of your camera or iPhone 
  •      basic skills to learn when shooting camera or video outdoors

This will be a very intimate weekend with lots of 1:1 time with both Katherine and myself to answer any of your outdoor adventure questions or concerns.
