Shooting beautiful photos of iconic national parks, like Mt. Rainer National Park and Olympic National Park, requires an appreciation for nature, talent and technique. Luckily for all of you aspiring outdoor photographers, Ian Shive is going to show you how it's done.

From Wednesday, Aug. 27 to Friday, Aug. 29, the Ansel Adams Award-winning photographer and best-selling author of The National Parks: Our American Landscape is going teach an online class called "Photographing America's National Parks," broadcasting live from an on-location shoot at a national park.

It's a free class brought to you be interactive learning platform CreativeLive; all you have to do is RSVP at the link below.

During the three days of shooting, Shive will demonstrate his techniques, teaching the key elements of professional outdoor photography, including: composition, shooting in challenging weather conditions, exposure settings for every environment, using filters to manage available light, scouting the perfect location and much more.

In addition to learning how to shoot in the field, you'll also learn how to work in the studio, as Shive will teach how to manage and edit the work you do outdoors.
