The Los Angeles River Photo Adventure with Peter Bennett (Travel Workshop)

One of the most exciting places to be these days in Los Angeles is the LA River. The river has long been an iconic landscape in the City of Los Angeles, internationally known as a backdrop for movies like Terminator 2 and Grease.  It is also where the city’s origins began as the first settlers made their home along its banks.  For many years, the river itself was the primary source of water for the growing city. Today, the LA River is experiencing a rebirth and rejuvenation, a transformative time in its history as it so slowly but surely returns to its natural state.

Photographer Peter Bennett ( has been documenting the river’s 51 -mile journey to the sea since 2008, photographing beautiful landscapes, majestic historic bridges, captivating still-life’s and exciting glimpses of the river’s wildlife and many recreational activities. Join Peter as he takes you along an incredible, picturesque 10-hour river adventure, designed specifically for photographers. Peter’s intimate knowledge of the river and its history allows him to assist fellow photographers in finding unique and undiscovered places to shoot, all while providing technical help and great fellowship.

A special note from Peter Bennett:

“I am happy to announce the launch of my new blog: LA River Pix –

This blog is really a labor of love as it will be a place to showcase photos of my favorite subject, a place I have been going back to for years now and still find something new and exciting to shoot (with a camera) each time. It will also be a place to teach about photography, the classes and workshops I have been leading have been going great and this will be an opportunity to supplement them and have some fun doing it.

If you get a chance, take a visit. If you like it, please support it by subscribing, and if you know someone else who might be interested, please spread the word.

But most of all, go down and take a look for yourself and see what is happening along the river’s banks. There are some exciting changes already happening, the future looks bright and I believe the LA River is on its way to becoming an iconic and integral part of Los Angeles. Also, go to the site and learn how you can be a part of a major decision that is coming up regarding the future of the river and all of LA, and make your voice heard.”
