Announcement: Lonely Speck at Mammoth Photo Festival 2019

This October 10-13, Lonely Speck will be presenting and leading excursions at the Mammoth Photo Festival in Mammoth Lakes, California. The Mammoth Photo Festival is four days of photography excursions, talks, and classes from industry experts across multiple genres of photography including landscape, action sport, portraiture and astro. We want you to join us!

We’ve been leading astrophotography workshops and photo conferences since we started Lonely Speck, and this is the first time we’ve had the opportunity to be a part of such a huge photo festival. The Mammoth Photo Festival is being held in the place we probably love shooting astrophotography most: the Eastern Sierra Nevada mountains of California.

Mammoth Lakes is only a few hours drive (or a short flight) from Los Angeles and it’s one of our absolute favorite places to shoot landscapes and astrophotography. We frequent the drive along California’s highway 395, which hugs the foothills of the Eastern Sierra Nevada mountains. The Eastern Sierras are known as California’s “Range of Light” and they are a photographer’s paradise. Numerous 10,000+ ft peaks line a massive wilderness frontier that includes America’s first National Park, Yosemite. In all our travels around the world, California’s Eastern Sierras still stand near the top of our list as one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world.

This year, we’ll be presenting alongside an amazing array photographers from around the world. We’ll be two of the over 25 presenters hosting excursions, talks and classes at the Mammoth Photo Festival. We’re also guiding several moonlit night workshops for full-access pass holders and a number of classes and presentations during the 4 day festival. We’re super excited to be hosting alongside such an amazing group of photographers and even more excited for you to join us. Check out the full details of what to expect on the Mammoth Photo Festival site.
