Join our photography workshop on our own wild and pristine North Carolina barrier
islands. By popular demand, we kept this springtime Outer Banks workshop,
right in our own back yard. We will show you special gems along this untamed
coastline we love so well.
The sunrises and sunsets can be spectacular, the patterns
along the seashore and in the marshes inspirational, and the sights and sounds
of the wild Atlantic pounding the coast intoxicating. We'll even visit a beautiful garden where the spring blossoms are stunning.
You'll love photographing
here, and you'll be able to celebrate
your passion for photography, hone your seeing and imaging skills, and learn
about the magic of light to make wonderful photographs.
For this workshop, we will be based in Nags Head, near the site of the first
flight by the Wright Brothers. It is an area rich in history, so there is no
lack of subject matter.
Springtime here is quite different from the fall. The Outer Banks are almost deserted; the winter winds have tossed the dunes around into new formations; and the coast looks particularly wild and dramatic. We'll pretty much have the place to ourselves!
And this spring, we'll have the New Moon, which may give us some terrific opportunities for night skies if Mother Nature cooperates.
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.
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
Opening wine-and-pizza reception;
Primer booklet to help you get started;
Early-morning and late-afternoon shoots;
Mid-day downloading of your images and processing with the latest version
Lots of individual instruction in both the field and classroom;
Daily critiques, both individual and group;
Discussions on various aspects of photography, including digital workflow; and
Lots of fun and frivolity throughout!
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.
You will also receive written instructions on the ins and outs of successfully and easily turning your favorite digital
images into beautiful prints straight out of the latest version of Lightroom using your own printer.
