Join our photography workshop in the beautiful mountains of western Virginia where springtime is stunning. There will be many subjects to inspire you — cascades, waterfalls, beautiful and sometimes-rare wildflowers, old mills, villages, farms, country churches, and mountain mists that abound in this historic area. You can't go wrong photographically.

We'll be based in Warm Springs in historic Bath County, located high in the beautiful Alleghany Mountains of Appalachia. Not much has changed in this county since 1861 when General Robert E. Lee said of the area, "The views are so magnificent ... the valleys so beautiful, the scenery so peaceful." You'll agree that this is a wonderful place to photograph. In fact, this area has attracted interest from National Geographic, The Travel Channel, and others.

Scouting Option:
For those who want more time with Margo and Arnie, we offer the opportunity to scout and shoot with them before most of our domestic workshops. We limit this to two people per day who ride in the car with the instructors. During these days while Arnie and Margo do their own photography and final scouting for the workshop, there is also lots of individual instruction and discussions about photography.

Contact us for details.

Practical Details:
We start out with some technical information before heading out for our first afternoon of photography. Our workshops include the following:
  • Maximum 6-to-1 ratio students to instructors;
  • Primer booklet to help you get started;
  • Early-morning and late-afternoon shoots for domestic workshops;
  • Daily downloading of your images and processing (we use the latest version of Lightroom);
  • Lots of individual instruction in both the field and classroom;
  • Daily critiques, both individual and group for domestic workshops and most overseas ones;
  • Discussions on various aspects of photography, including digital workflow; and
  • Lots of fun and frivolity throughout!
One critical note:  if you are contemplating buying a new camera, please make sure you have a basic working knowledge of it BEFORE you come to one of our workshops. There are so many variations amongst camera brands, and even within each brand, far too many for us to know and thus be able to help you.
FAQs:
If you have not already done so, be sure to check our FAQs for questions you may have as well as for equipment and installed downloads you need to bring to the workshop including, if necessary, the free, 30-day, trial versions of Adobe and other imaging products.
