Join Don Brown and David Culp on a summer time adventure in the mountains of West Virginia where we will explore the photogenic riches of the New River Gorge area. From old grist mills to waterfalls surrounded by blooming rhododendron to old ghost towns, this area never disappoints.
West Virginia is surprising to most as it is an often forgotten location in the Eastern US. It is filled with countless waterfalls and scenes that are found nowhere else in the country. If you are looking for a workshop where you will return home with new skills and images your fellow photographers probably have never seen before, this is the place for you.
Don and I have spent a great deal of time and effort to ensure our participants will see the best West Virginia has to offer and have chosen this time of year because the rhododendron should be blooming in many areas and we have selected locations with this in mind. While scouting some of the more prominent locations, we have located a number of small cascades as well that offer compositional elements that are a perfect place to hone your skills or learn new ones.
We will start on Thursday evening with a sunset shoot and begin exploring bright and early the next morning. Each day will include a sunrise and a sunset shoot with various locations throughout the day. We keep our groups small in order to provided as much individual instruction as desired. As time allows, we can share images and discuss editing techniques. It is our goal for you to not only depart with superb images, but to return home as a better photographer.
This workshop is for all skill levels. Whether you are new to photography and looking to learn the basics or a seasoned photographer looking for new locations to capture great images and to add a few new tricks to your bag, this workshop delivers.
