Join me for an exciting 5 days of nature and landscape photography in the beautiful and iconic Acadia National Park. Experience the photographic journey of the majestic cliffs that rise sharply above the Atlantic Ocean, as well as pristine lakes and amazing mountain top sunrises. We’ll be visiting classic park locations like Otter Cliffs, Jordan Pond, Eagle Lake, plus many other less visited locations of equal beauty. My goal is to inspire your creative spirit, help you gain confidence, improve your vision, and push you to grow as a nature photographer.
What You Will Experience
I love teaching and working with other photographers – plain and simple. And you’ll see that each day of the workshop. We’ll visit my favorite locations to capture dramatic and expressive images, and we’ll work together to help you gain confidence with your composition, technique, and ability to convey your personal vision. The techniques we cover in the field will be reinforced in the classroom, helping you improve while still on location. We’ll spend time developing images in Lightroom 5, cover many compositional skills, and learn from each other during photo critiques.
This workshop is designed for serious photographers – beginner to advanced – who want to improve and expand their creative potential. Regardless of your experience, this workshop will give you the opportunity to work closely with a passionate professional dedicated to helping you develop your personal vision. Laptop computer with Lightroom 5 or higher is highly recommended.
IMPORTANT– This workshop involves some moderate hiking over uneven terrain.You should be comfortable carrying your gear while hiking. Any questions or concerns, please call or email for specific info on the type of hiking we’ll be doing.
We’ll be headquartered at the Best Western Acadia Park Inn in Mt Desert Island, which sits right on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. The nearby town of Bar Harbor provides various shopping and dining options, a public library, great food, and many photographic opportunities when we’re not out on a shoot.
Lodging and food not included in the workshop fee. There will be a complimentary group dinner after the last sunset shoot.
Please call to make your reservation asap, as this is a busy time of year. We have a block of rooms set aside for workshop students – just mention “Beyond the Lens Workshops.” http://www.acadiaparkinn.com/index.html
Workshop starts Tuesday morning Oct 10th and ends Saturday morning Oct 14th after our last sunrise shoot, so plan on getting to Mt Desert Is on or before Monday Oct 9th.
