Cataract Creek Waterfalls Photo Walk

Take a hike with Michael from Camera West in Walnut Creek on this photo walk alongside beautiful Cataract Creek on the north slope of Mt Tamalpais in Marin County. This winter’s rains have provided plenty of water for tiny Cataract Creek producing a series of small waterfalls that drop through a forest canopy of redwood, Douglas fir, oak, and maple trees.

This photo walk is for photographers of all abilities. Only requirements are a camera that will allow you to manually set the shutter speed, and a sturdy tripod. Michael will show you how to best photograph moving water and offer some tips to get that silky smooth look to the water.

This photo walk is limited to just 12 photographers so sign up early!

Waterfalls Hike up Cataract Creek

Thank you to everyone who joined me yesterday for the Camera West Walnut Creek photo walk to shoot the waterfalls along Cataract Creek in Marin County. We had an enthusiastic group of 14 shooters who learned how to get that perfect look to moving water in their photographs. Although the water flow could have been better, I’m grateful that it was still flowing! Last year I had to cancel this same photo walk due to a lack of water.

For those of you who would like to join us next time, I’ll be leading this same photo walk next year so get in the habit of checking our events tab on the Camera West website for our upcoming events.

Cataract Creek Waterfalls Photo Walk

Thank you to all the participants who joined me this past weekend to shoot the beautiful waterfalls along Cataract Creek in Marin County.

This photo walk was so popular that I led two groups, one on Saturday and another on Sunday. SInce we’ve had such a dry winter, the waterfalls were at less than ideal flows, but we still had plenty to shoot and everyone seemed to have a great time.

If you want to go out and shoot some waterfalls, check out this earlier how-to blog post from last year, and if you are interested in joining us on our next photo walk, click on the events tab to the left of this post.
