Item Description

Point Reyes National Seashore Association is happy to partner with Todd Pickering, a local West Marin photographer offering this Point Reyes photography outing for two. Spend the day with photographer Todd Pickering.

First, you'll meet Todd at his Inverness Park gallery on a weekday, Monday through Friday, and talk a little about cameras. Then, head out to explore the rich landscape of the Point Reyes peninsula.

After a lunch break, shoot more photos before returning to his gallery to review and discuss your photos from your day with this consumate and Point Reyes-intimate artist.

Plus, enjoy a four-person, two weeknights' stay (Sunday through Thursday) in a sunny two-bedroom, two-bathroom Inverness home with decks and foot access to trails. Linens are provided. Maximum 4 people (two couples or one couple with two children; no children under age 8.) No pets or parties.

The house is a one-floor mid-century home on a sunny knoll, with two bedrooms (one king bed, one queen), two full baths, an open floor plan (living room, dining room, kitchen), a large deck overlooking Tomales Bay and Mount Vision, and a small deck off the master bedroom.


"In many senses, I'm just a defender of beauty.
Of course, then there is the debate over what beauty is.
For me it is just one thing: Quiet light.
That's the nature of it. It's very simple"

Todd Pickering received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute where he concentrated on landscape photography and sculpture. Travels have taken him from above the Arctic Circle in Norway to the rainforests in Hawaii and to the jungles of Sri Lanka. Recent years you can find him walking the curves and edges of the Point Reyes region.
