A special note because of the required Covid-19 Restrictions.

It will be no surprise to anyone that workshops have had to be canceled due to Coronavirus/Covid-10 restrictions put in place by various governmental entities. While several of my workshops have been canceled it’s possible that additional workshops will need to be canceled, postponed, or otherwise adjusted in light of this crisis. I’ve noted below those that have already been canceled. Registered participants have been notified.

Going forward

Most everyone is in some form of a quandary as we look forward to the rest of 2020 and 2021. It’s difficult to schedule activities and even more difficult to commit to spending when we are not certain about how open and active our society will be, at least for the balance of 2020.

To allay any concerns about registering for the upcoming workshops, I’m outlining my policy related to Covid-19 necessitated cancellations.

In my work to prepare for potential Covid-19 impact on the workshops I will ascertain that restaurants will accommodate us for meals and our meeting place will be available for presentations, image review sessions, and photo printing, and what adjustments to our normal operations may be necessary. Here’s my commitment to you. You may reserve your seat for any workshop with the normal deposit and payment requirements. Should future Covid-19 policies necessitate the cancellation or significantly change how we will be able to proceed with workshops, I will reach out to each participant and if, because of the Covid-19 impact on the workshop you choose not to participate, you will receive a full refund, or you may choose to credit any payments to a future workshop(s). I will make certain that any facilities we are recommending for lodging have cancellation policies that assure a refund as well.  Any workshop refunds will be refunded expeditiously via PayPal.

Waterfalls & Streams of Central New York

April 24 & 25, 2021 – Waterfalls & Streams of Central New York

When you cannot get all the fun into one day, you have to go with two. That’s what’s happened to my oldest workshop. For the first time, this year (2021) the workshop that kicked-off my adventure leading photography workshops will be a two-day event. Honestly, it’s the only way we can get all the waterfalls and streams that want to photograph into the schedule.

Adirondack Lakes, Streams, Waterfalls

July 7-11, 2021 – Adirondack Lakes, Streams, Waterfalls

In the Pring of 2021 you will want to be ready to enjoy some of the most beautiful waterscapes anywhere. Our Adirondack trek will get us to tranquil lakes and ponds, meandering mountain streams, peaceful marshes, and crashing waterfalls including the Raquette River, the Cedar River, Connery Pond, Buttermilk Falls, Lake Abanakee and much more.

Quiet waters of the Adirondacks

August 18-22, 2021 – Quiet waters of the Adirondacks

Most of us cannot resist taking photographs 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.

Autumn Color – Adirondack Style

Sept 29 to Oct 3, 2021 – Autumn Color – Adirondack Style

People travel from all over the country (indeed all over the world) to enjoy the colorful Adirondack Mountains in full autumn regalia. This workshop will offer easy access to mountain trails, magnificent waterfalls, wilderness rivers and streams, placid lakes, and awesome sunsets & sunrises, and we expect, all painted with the brilliant colors of autumn.

Death Valley

November 8-12, 2021 - Death Valley National Park

Death Valley has been attractive and mysterious since long before the first prospectors arrived in the middle of the 19th century.  In Death Valley National Park, “Your mission, should you decide to accept it . . . .” is all about creating images that capture the desert’s attractiveness and its mystery.

Winter Wionderland

Canceled due to Covid-19 - Watch for new dates for 2021
Getting Ready for Winter Photography

Winter’s coming, as sure as summer’s winding down. For nature photographers, the winter season can be a period of excitement as Mother Nature changes the landscape, often dramatically, on an almost daily basis. So, it’s time to “Get Ready for Winter Photography”.

Shenandoah National Park

May 26- 30, 2021 – Shenandoah National Park

The Shenandoah National Park website could not 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 either. Did I suggest that photographers can be excused if they think they have died and gone to heaven?

One extreme in our winter weekend landscape.

Canceled due to Covid-19 - Watch for new dates for 2021
ADK High Peaks Winter Photography Event

Jay, NY in the High Peaks of the Adirondack Mountains will be our venue for the Second Annual edition of this event and if the last one is any indication, we all ought to start getting excited. Some details, such as confirming the list of guest speakers, still need to be confirmed, but it’s not too early to get your registration in.

Great Camp Sagamore

Cancelled – Adirondack Great Camp Sagamore

Living, dining and photographing one of the original Great Camps of the Adirondacks may be considered just a tease since from this home base we’ll discover how to create meaningful images that express the character of autumn colors in the Adirondack Mountains of Upstate New York.
