“We decided to use PayPal as a payment gateway for several different reasons” said Eric Moore, Executive Director of the festival. “One being is that PayPal is a trusted name which many photographers have used it, and they also have the security and infrastructure that we would never be able to provide independently".
Workshops range in pricing from Jack Dykinga’s four-day workshop: Light on the Land at $1000 to Doug Berry’s Location Lighting at $300. The workshops are varied and taught by, including the above instructors, Tom Till, Robert Glenn Ketchum, Gordon Wiltsie, Bill Ellzey, Joni Sternbach, Wendy Shattil & Bob Rozinski, Kathleen Norris Cook, and Tim Kemple.

Eric Moore comments on the workshop lineup “We are very proud to be able to offer so many outdoor photography workshops of such a high quality in one place at one time.” Moore continues “In terms of pricing, especially in light of the current economy, you will be hard pressed to find another photography festival with as great a line up for such an incredible value”.
The workshops can be a considerable investment.

"There is just no better place for a Photography Festival than Telluride," said event founder and organizer Moore. Tucked in a high mountain valley, Telluride is a dream playground for the adventurer and the photographer. Majestic peaks surround the town, once home to silver and gold prospectors. Weathered ruins of old mining operations dot the hillsides. Telluride is also home to a world-class ski resort. The area attracts mountain bikers, hang gliders, kayakers and climbers. Telluride is known worldwide for its summer festivals: the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Mountain Film, Blues and Brews, Wine Festival and the Telluride Film Festival.
Also it should be mentioned that the festival is within a half day trip of four National Parks--Mesa Verde, Arches, Canyonlands, and Capitol Reef--as well as several notable National Monuments and State Parks such as Hovenweep, Dead Horse Point, and The Black Canyon of the Gunnison.
