Hudson River School 4-Day Photo Workshop
Explore and photograph the trails and landscapes painted by the Hudson River School of Painters in this unique photo workshop. We’ll spend 4 creative days exploring all the great landscapes in the Hudson Valley, from the picturesque Catskill Mountains to the dramatic Hudson Highlands. We’ll visit the very best photo locations explored by someone intimately familiar with the terrain and character of the area.
Aimed at improving your photography, creative vision, and appreciation of photography as an art form, our subjects will include waterfalls, tranquil forest settings, and grand landscapes set in the majestic Hudson Valley. We’ll also visit historic Olana, the home of famed painter Frederic Church, and enjoy a tour of the grounds, his studio, and experience his renowned paintings.
In short, this is a one of a kind workshop set in a truly unique and inspiring location, with endless photo opportunities, and abundant natural settings that have inspired countless artists for generations.
What You’ll Experience
This workshop is primarily about growth and vision. Of course you will have the opportunity to make many great images, but the focus is on pushing beyond your comfort zone to expand your visual potential.
This workshop is designed for serious photographers – beginner to advanced – who want to improve and expand their creative potential. Regardless of your experience, if you want to take your photography to the next level, this workshop will give you the opportunity to work closely with a passionate professional dedicated to helping you develop your personal vision.
Students must be in good physical condition and be able to hike 2-3 miles with photo gear on moderately strenuous trails. Safety is always my priority, so if you have any questions or concerns, please contact me for more information.
Lodging is not included, but we will be making our base in historic Beacon, NY which provides several lodging options from quaint B&B’s to five star hotels. Beacon is home to the Dia Museum, shops, galleries, and is perfectly situated on the Hudson River, with a Metro North station just 80 minutes from NYC. There are also lodging options in the town of Fishkill. I will provide recommendations upon registration.
