GHOST RANCH and Northern New Mexico—May 14-20, 2017 

One magazine recently declared Northern New Mexico the number one destination in the world for photographers. I can’t argue with that. A rich combination of some of the world’s greatest and most unusual landscapes, great historical sites, colorful characters and architecture make it so. In addition to Ghost Ranch, we will also photograph the Great Sand Dunes just over the border in Colorado and several Rio Grande Gorge locations. This is a very special trip!

Workshop fee—$495.
Workshop limited to 12 maximum, 10 minimum.

NOVA SCOTIA, PEGGY’S COVE—August 6-12, 2017

The rocky Atlantic coast of southern Nova Scotia is home to numerous working fishing villages offering endless opportunities for great photography. Brightly colored lobster traps, buoys, lobster boats, and trawlers anchored in the coves lit by the early or late light make for great images. Early morning fog can add great mood to your photos. We will spend time in historic Peggy’s Cove, home to one of the most picturesque lighthouses on the Atlantic, and numerous other spots along the shore like Lunenburg, Prospect, Chester, and Blue Rocks. A visit to Halifax will include a stop at the oldest Public Garden in North America.

Workshop fee—$695.

ST. AUGUSTINE—April 9-12, 2017

Birds, Gators, Beaches and History! St. Augustine has it all. St. Augustine is the longest continually inhabited European-founded city in the United States. Stroll the narrow lanes and visit landmarks such as Castillo de San Marcos, the Bridge of Lions, and much more.

We will spend two mornings at the Alligator Farm Zoological Park. This is a terrific opportunity to hone your wildlife photography skills. The Park hosts a wide variety of wildlife in addition to alligators – native herons, egrets, ibis, spoonbills, and wood storks seek the security of the Alligator Swamp to roost and raise their young. With hundreds of alligators swimming beneath the oak branches, the birds know their young are safe from tree-climbing predators. The wooden walkways allow for incredibly intimate views of Florida’s magnificent wading birds on their nests. Photographers achieve award-winning shots here every year. We will also make a point of getting out to the beach for those east coast sunrises.

Workshop fee—$195.

Noted for its scenic beauty and grand vistas of the Appalachian Mountains, this treasured American byway provides the photographer with great sunrises, sunsets, fall color, and the occasional elk. We will explore from the Parkway’s southern terminus at the entrance to Great Smoky Mountain Park north to the Shining Rock Wilderness.

BOSQUE DEL APACHE—December 3-7, 2017

 Bosque del Apache (or Apache Woods) by its very name will resonate with most nature photographers. This wildlife preserve in southern New Mexico is one of the most spectacular sites for photographing migratory birds in the United States. Each year in December, the preserve is visited by thousands of birds. The staff at the refuge often report as many as 50,000 snow geese, 40,000 ducks, 8,000 sandhill cranes, and numerous other birds, including bald eagles, in residence. From before sunrise till well after sunset, this is a bird photographer’s paradise. In addition to the birds, deer and other wildlife are a common sight. The photography opportunities are simply amazing—and the winter landscape and light are awesome.

Workshop fee—$395.
Workshop limited to 12 maximum, minimum 10.
