We will kick the workshop off at 1pm with an introduction and short classroom presentation on photographing the park. After class, we head out to shoot until after sunset. Each day we will be in the park shooting sunrise/morning light and late afternoon/sunset. Each day we will have a classroom session, approximately 90 mints back at the hotel. On the final day, we will have a sunrise/morning shoot and be back to the hotel with plenty of time for folks to pack up and check out.
There will be no strenuous hiking involved during the workshop and most locations will be close to the road. Some locations, however may involve a short hike of less than a mile with no serious elevation gains. We will be spending a lot of time shooting along the rocky Maine coast. The terrain there is very uneven and can be somewhat slippery. Hiking boots and a modest level of health and fitness will greatly enhance your experience.
