I have a certificate in photography from niagara college and I have had many teachers but you are by far the best I have had. I'm so happy that you took the time to answer our questions and help us through everything, I have had some interesting teachers that will not give you a straight answer for the life of you. So I really appreciate your teaching methods.
Acadia National Park in autumn is a magical location for photography. It offers multitudes of colorful, nature settings sure to satisfy your photographic creativity. Imagine yourself on location on high peaks of Cadillac Mountain (elev. 1600ʼ) as your camera captures the first sunlight to illuminate the continental United States! Explore the Parkʼs beauty - rocky coves, charming ponds, forested promontories, stunning isolated beaches - all within your reach to photograph during Autumnʼs color peak. Marco will guide you to the best locations and will personally assist you on location with composition tips and camera settings to help you capture your best images. Our itinerary is designed to make the most of your time, beginning on location with the first light covering the east and ending our day hiking undiscovered paths to sensational sunset locations. Between sunrise and sunset, we will shoot locations best captured in the warm autumn daylight. Our rich shooting days will typically conclude with evening group evaluations and tip-sharing sessions. No matter what your skill level, you will find the Acadia Fall Workshop will reward you with outstanding images! We are planning to stay minutes away from the Park entrance and minutes away from the Bar Harbor downtown.
Our workshop will cover most of these iconic park locations, including: Cadillac Mountain, Jordan Pond, Otter Cliffs, Boulder Beach, Southwest Lighthouse, Otter Cove, Somme Sound, Shipwreck. Eagle Lake, Jordan Pond, Echo Lake, Long Pond and possible trails such as the Gorham, Bubbles, Beech cliff, and Jordan Pond trail.
* Time permitting and weather permitting, we will also approach a night shoot. If you've never tried nighttime photography, you are in for a real treat. Learn techniques on low light exposure, lighting, and star trails. The goal of this workshop is to have fun while learning new techniques in the process. We will not make the night shoot an event that will last more than a few hours since we will need to get up early the next morning.
You will return home with many new techniques that will help you grow for years to come.
The final itinerary will be sent out to our participants at least two weeks prior to the start date of the workshop.
