Classes & Workshops

International award-winning photographer Mark Kirkland offers exclusive photography workshops and classes that will increase your knowledge and your passion for photography. There is no such thing as a "lucky shot" in photography. A lucky shot would be getting a beautiful photograph of the Maroon Bells while sitting in your basement. Good photography happens when you get up early, make the trek, plan the shot and pray for divine intervention. Join me for one of these life-changing workshops and perhaps you will take home the shot of a lifetime.


wild-horses-wyomingI've traveled far and wide, and photographed a multitude of critters, but nothing has taken my breath away like the wild horses of America. There is something so spiritual about these animals. All the odds are against the wild horses in today's world. Pharmaceutical, oil, and dog food industries all have their sights set on American wild horses. The adoption programs appear, on the surface, to be a perfect solution. However, less than four percent of the animals put up for adoption find homes, the rest are slaughtered. Wild horse photography is simply something that cannot be put off.

coastal-brown-bears-alaskaThe largest of all the grizzly bear species is the Coastal Brown Bear. The Coastal Brown Bear makes his home on the shores of Alaska, where abundant food supplies fuel these enormous beasts. A typical July day will have 20 hours of sunlight, which means 20 hours of photography. We will literally have to force ourselves to sleep. The private base camp facilities are ideal for comfort and remote access. This is the opportunity you have been looking for to learn all there is to know about digital photography and the new equipment you have recently purchased. There is no rival on earth for the conditions and opportunities photographing these magnificent animals. Each day will produce memories and images that will be cherished forever.
