Calling all the ladies! Since 2011, Colleen's all-women's workshops have helped inspire photographic growth, personal development, wanderlust, and life-long friendships. And Sheography™ aims to continue that, to help women of all ages, backgrounds, and photographic skill become "the woman you were meant to be through the art of photography and adventure."


Join Colleen and other Sheographers™ for this photographic adventure along the southern Oregon Coast!


We'll base ourselves in the outskirts of Bandon on a specially-rented private house with a whopping 10,000-square-feet of living space and six-acres of land to roam in the hills above the Coquille Valley and River. No stuffy hotel here! You can be sure we'll enjoy the 180-degree views of the surrounding area with a fire blazing in the fire pit on the deck on an evening or two! Can you say "s'more's"?


We'll be just minutes away from the photogenic Face Rock Scenic State Viewpoint and Bullards Beach State Park where rugged sea stacks, lighthouse, and patterned sandy beaches await. (Maybe even some Vellela vellela too!) To continue putting our photography skills and learnings to good use, we'll also make half-day road trips to Shore Acres State Park and Cape Arago to explore even more sandy beach scenes, boats, and lighthouses through our lenses.


In the learning-intensive, supportive, and small group setting characteristic to Colleen's/Sheography™ workshops, we'll push ourselves to try new things photographically and creatively. Through a balance of field-based sessions, casual presentations, and open discussions, attendees will learn more about how to:

And you'll have a blast in the process!
