Caddo Lake

Landscape Photography from a boat in the Heart of the Bayou

November 4 – 8, 2023

Caddo Lake has an otherworldly quality to it. Majestic bald cypress trees rise from tannin-stained waters, their crowns draped in Spanish moss. In autumn, their needles turn red and orange, lending fiery color to the otherwise muted landscape. Fog swirls around the broad cypress trunks and rises among their branches. Wildlife thrives in these quiet forests, including abundant species of birds. With luck, we may even see an alligator!

As an internationally protected wetland area and home to one of the most extensive flooded cypress forests in the world, the Caddo Lake ecosystem provides plenty of photographic opportunities. We’ll be shooting from special flat-bottomed boats, which will allow us an intimate perspective of the trees and get us close to wildlife. Along the way, you will learn to use a variety of focal lengths and perspectives to create compelling images of this unique environment. From grand landscapes to small intimate scenes, Caddo Lake has it all!

We’ll stay at comfortable local hotels and shoot at sunrise and sundown. We’ll be conducting classroom learning on Lightroom and holding our signature image review sessions when not in the field. Join us in the magical flooded bayou!
