Welcome to Frozen Hiker Photography

Latest News

2020 has been an interesting year to say the least.  Hopefully, everyone was able to take some time and learn some new techniques and capture some great photos.

Along those lines, I have been busy creating some new classes and developing workshops.  New for 2021 will be a garden photography class at the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.  Also at the arboretum, I will be teaching a new class specifically on focus stacking.   This will cover both macro and landscape techniques.   

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, the Lightroom classes at the arboretum, and the Badlands workshop have been cancelled.  These were tough decisions, but necessary in order to keep everyone safe, and to ensure a good experience. 


Originally, this was going to be the last year for the Badlands workshop.  Since the workshop is cancelled this year, I will be offering it again next year.  The dates for the workshop are Dec 2 - 5, 2021.  I hope to see you there.

If you are interested in learning or improving your Lightroom skills, I do offer web based 1-1 training.  The cost is $40 per hour.  For more information, send an email to don@frozenhiker.com.

I am excited to be once again teaching photography classes out at the Arboretum. 


As a nature photographer, the Arboretum offers just about every type of subject matter.  My classes are designed to help you get the most out of your visits.


This year we will be offering some fun and interesting classes out at Hot Sams Foto Park. 

Topics include fire dancers, large scale still life, and light painting.  Each of these classes will provide both a lecture and hands-on.


For 2021, there will be three workshops.  We will be returning to Ely Oct 8 - 10, and the Badlands will Dec 2 - 5.

We will also be doing a Mustangs and Collies workshop at Riverside Mustangs and Collies.  The date for this is still being determined.

Hopefully, we will be able to resume classes at the Minnetonka Center for the Arts.  As of right now, I don't have any information on when they plan to reopen.


The Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge visitor centers remain closed.  Along with the building closures, there are no in person programs are being offered.

I do hope to offer a few on-line programs over the winter.

Now you can attend some of my lectures from the comfort of your own computer, tablet, or mobile device.

New for this year, I will be offering some of my lectures as free webinars.
