Over 350 glaciers melt into the Skagit river, providing an abundance of cold, fast flowing rivulets cascading down the valley's steep mountainsides. Join us in North Cascades National Park as we visit many of these waterfalls and learn how to capture the essence of these powerful cataracts with flawless composition, and long exposure photography.


There is plenty of parking around each of the water falls where we plan to take wonderful images, with many different elements to create your compositions; a suspension bridge, beautifully sculpted rock, ponds & pools, and dramatic heights. Some of Washington State's more breathtaking views are these very falls. 


Let accomplished Pacific Northwest photographer Juan Aguilera teach you how to capture with your camera what you're seeing in your mind's eye.

  • How to use filters to capture dramatic light or create long-exposure effects
