I am pleased to announce that I will be returning to Rockport, Maine, this summer to teach Garden Photography at the Maine Media Workshops. This is a week-long workshop from July 19-25, 2009, immediately following the local garden tours--so there will be a wonderful mix of coastal Maine gardens to photograph.
The workshop is geared toward editorial and fine art photographers with a passion for flowers, garden design and landscape architecture. For the most part, the garden will be our classroom--so come prepared to spend lots of time in the field! We'll also have some lively discussions and insightful critique sessions. Both gardeners and photographers are welcome, but participants should be competent with their own digital imaging equipment.
Participants will have an opportunity to master professional techniques and explore their personal vision. This class is as much about learning how to see a garden as it is how to photograph a garden. Topics will include visual design, working with light and weather, close-up photography, creating a portfolio, developing your style and promoting your work.
If you'd like additional information, please feel free to drop me a line. To register, contact the Maine Media Workshops at 877-577-7700. As soon as the summer schedule is updated on their website, I'll post a link to the class.
