The Palouse, a region in the Northwestern US, consists of rolling farmlands, fertile hills and praries – and it is one of the go-to places for photographers in North America!
This 4,000 square-mile region sprawls across the Washington-Idaho border, encompassing uncommonly rich farmland. Crop patterns form a vibrant patchwork appearance and a wild sea-like wave as the winds cause fields of wheat and barley to bend and sway.
The Palouse offers photographers the opportunity to capture a diverse landscape and a chance to witness an unforgettable land formed by the Lake Missoula glacial flood path of 15,000 years ago. Additionally, there are areas which contain older structures and barns, farm machinery and tools, and much more in the way of photogenic Americana.
Palouse Country Photo Tours is the only photography tour company that specializes in and is intimately knowledgeable with this amazing country. It’s not just that Jack Lien, who runs the show, knows where to go – he knows his neighbors well, has pre-arranged access to key sites, and makes it easy for photographers to capture lifetime images and great memories.

Segment One: Field Work
The field portion of this photo workshop is an excellent time to photograph the deep rich green fields against the freshly plowed ground and the pastoral scenes only found on the Palouse. The bold colors, patterns, lines, and contrast against the contours of the Palouse landscape is breathtaking. Different planted crops provide a wide range of colors and textures, and creative opportunities.
Field Workshop leader Jack Lien has discovered countless photographic opportunities throughout the region and has gained access to private land, nostalgic buildings and landscape that are often unknown or off limits to others. You’ll have abundant opportunities to photograph historic buildings, barns, windmills, and fields.
Segment Two: “Make Your Images Sparkle From Start to Finish” with David Saffir
In these segments, you’ll learn to optimize camera setup, get the right color from your computer, and edit your images to give them the sparkle and depth they deserve! We’ll emphasize Photoshop, Lightroom, Camera RAW, and fine art printing in these sessions.
