Below you’ll find a list of all of my workshops for 2015. This list will be constantly changing as I add more workshops, so please check in again or contact me directly if you have any questions or are interested in a particular workshop!

The Winter Night Landscape (February 22 – 28, 2015)

Please see the Maine Media Workshops site for details and to register. Here is the course description:

Exposing the night sky during the most beautiful time of year in Maine

This course is designed for students interested in exploring the possibilities of photographing the landscape at night as well as the night skies during the most beautiful time of year here in Maine. Night landscape photography during the winter provides students with an exciting new perspective on the landscape when the skies are most colorful and dramatic, allowing students to create photographs that have a mood and look all their own. By expanding their repertoire with night photography, photographers can push their technical and creative limits, and thus learn techniques and skills that can be applied to all of their creative work.

Photographing at night presents many challenges, both in technique at the time of shooting and in unique aspects in processing the images in the digital darkroom and creating fine prints. Students will gain an understanding of how to use the best techniques in the field to maximize the possible quality of the resulting photographs, both technically and compositionally. Students will also learn how to properly process and prepare night photographs, with all their subtleties and characteristics, for display and print.

The class will combine significant time in the field in the evening and at night with the remaining time being spent either in the digital darkroom or in a workshop setting discussing technique, composition, and reviewing and discussing images.
