Upcoming 2017/2018 Nature Photography Workshops and Tours

The image isn't finished just because it's captured in your camera. Even Ansel Adams took advantage of the technology of his day to optimize the final image, bringing it as close as possible to what he saw.


For more information on any of these upcoming events please send me an email or a note through my online contact form. Please note the following events are subject to change and details are still in process.


October 11-15, 2017 – Ricketts Glen & Waterfalls Galore – 2017
Waterfalls, waterfalls, waterfalls – plus! If you like photographing waterfalls and streams you’ll love Ricketts Glen State Park in Benton, PA. Headlined by the 94-foot Ganoga Falls the park sports a total of 22 named waterfalls. Of course that means virtually uncountable riffles and cascades along the way. It’s a veritable photographers paradise. (more information)

June 6-10, 2018 – Shenandoah National Park – 2018
The Shenandoah National Park website could ot be more correct when it notes that the park “. . . is your escape to recreation and re-creation.” I’d like to add that you can’t go wrong if you are searching for a great photography venue . . . actually many great photography venues. (more information)

July 18-24, 2018 – Long Lake, NY – Adirondack Lakes, Streams, Waterfalls – Plus: 2018

August 8-12, 2018 – Quiet waters of the Adirondacks – 2018
Most of us cannot resist taking pictures of beautiful scenes that include water . . . rivers, streams, lakes and waterfalls. And, there’s nowhere better to do that than in the Adirondack Mountains of New York’s Adirondack State Park. What’s more, who doesn’t like spending an August day on the shores of mountain lakes or ponds? (more information)

This tour/workshop will offer easy access to mountain trails, magnificent waterfalls, wilderness rivers and streams, placid lakes, and awesome sunsets & sunrises, all painted with the brilliant colors of autumn.

Photography workshops of a couple hours to a couple days

I’ve heard from many photographers whose schedules don’t allow for participation in multi-day workshops. To everyone in this situation, until your schedules open up a little I’d like to be able to help you grow as a photographer so to kick off the “Shorts” schedule take a look at these events. I expect the following list will grow as I learn more about what you want. I hope you’ll let me know if there is something specific you would like to see added to the schedule.

November 18, 2017, 10 am to 4 pm: Preparing for Winter Photography & enjoying macro/close-up photography
Okay, let’s admit it. Central New York is the Home of Winter. So, why do we try so hard to avoid it? Let’s celebrate it so enthusiastically that before we know it it’s spring already. I think it’s a shame if nature photographers miss out on all the beauty there is to capture during our winter months . . . most often because of concerns about the effects of cold temperatures on them and their gear.

Check back for more shorts…coming soon.
