Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (the "UP") contains some of the most breathtaking scenery in the United States. Lake Superior lies to the north providing miles of rocky shoreline that form colorful caves, cracks and crevices. Lake Michigan and Lake Huron form the peninsula's vast southern border.
The region earned the name, “Copper Country," in the mid 1800’s when copper mining held sway as the predominant industry of the time. The rich hues of copper and green radiate from rocks and lake beds.
Much of the area, designated as state park and state forest, supplies abundant landscape, wildlife and plant photographic opportunities. Remote waterfalls, rare orchids, colorful birds and pristine shoreline make the "UP" a magical place for photographers and naturalists alike.
Day 2 – 3
“Before going on the tour, I had already taken continuing education classes and assisted professional photographers. What I learned during the eco-photo tour was priceless! Somehow between the two of you, you managed to include art, history, biology, ecology and computer science! I truly appreciated the hands-on attention, technical knowledge, straight forward answers and positive encouragement to compose the shot right there. The immediate results from your suggestions were absolutely amazing! I was able to add creative effects using my camera settings without using photoshop! ”
