$1,280 w/ discounts available
The Outer Banks are a long, thin strip of barrier islands that protect the North Carolina Coast. Preserved to a large extent by the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, it is a visual feast of historic lighthouses spaced between long stretches of wild beaches and pristine sand dunes.

Joshua Tree National Park
$1,280 w/ discounts available
We are returning to the park where its nearly 800,000 acres have seen human habitation for at least 5,000 years. From the earliest-known Pinto Culture to the ranchers, miners, and homesteaders of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, there is a wealth of archeological and historic sites protected by the park. Not only are there the iconic park namesakes, the Joshua trees, but there are wonderful rock formations created by early volcanic and tectonic action and sculpted by erosion. This is a location where the light creates all sorts of surprises and patterns, and you will find plenty to photograph ....

The Many Faces of Charleston
$1,380 w/ discounts available
Charleston has many faces. Not only is she a southern belle, complete with handsome architecture, famous charm, beautiful tree-shaded streets and squares, wonderful wrought iron, old cemeteries, and an interesting waterfront, but nearby, there are historic plantations, the ocean and estuaries, and and we must not forget the wonderful, magnificent swamps with their graceful cypress trees, knees rising out of the water, and reflections amongst spring flowers. There is much to explore and inspire your artistic eye ...

Springtime on the Outer Banks
$1,380 w/ discounts available
Join our photography workshop on our own wild and pristine North Carolina barrier islands. We will show you special gems along this untamed coastline we love so well. The sunrises and sunsets can be spectacular, the patterns along the seashore and in the marshes inspirational, and the sights and sounds of the wild Atlantic pounding the coast intoxicating. We'll even visit a beautiful garden where the spring blossoms are stunning. You'll love photographing here, and you'll be able to celebrate your passion for photography, hone your seeing and imaging skills, and learn about the magic of light to make wonderful photographs...

Paris, City of Light
$1,700 w/ discounts available
Paris, also known as The City of Light, is without a doubt our favorite city. TBC's English Granny and dad lived there. Margo first spent time there in the early 60s, and Arnie followed a few years later. We base our workshops on the Left Bank/Rive Gauche near Jardin du Luxumbourg. The Seine is a short walk down the hill, and the Louvre and Notre Dame are a few steps more. Cafés abound, and we get to watch and photograph the people and sites of this grand city. Margo, by the way, speaks fluent French. Here, you'll get to seek your own vision while having fun honing your photographic skills and sampling the great food and wine the city offers.

Barging in Southern Provence - WAIT LIST; e-mail!
$4,700 participants; $3,500 guests
We have long wanted to do a photo workshop aboard a barge along the wondeful canals of Europe. There will be bicycles, so we can head into this or that village. The barge has its own chef on board with all meals, wine, beer, and refreshments included in the price. We have selected southern Provence for our first such adventure and have flexibility so that we can plan on taking advantage of the great light at either ends of the day. Between times, we will enjoy the barge, the sights along two canals, biking and walking along the tow paths, and imaging and critiques, as always ...

Annual BCPA Alumni Potluck Reunion
Entry Fee: Potluck dish and libation of your choice
Our BCPA Alumni Reunion has turned into a very popular event. Starting with just locals, people from other states felt left out and joined us ... California and Texas. Since then, we have added New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, and other states to the roster. This event is open to all our alumni and a guest of their choosing. Save-the-date reminders are sent out, and the official invitation comes sometime in the spring.

Summertime on the Maine Coast
$1,380 w/ discounts available
Maine is known for its dramatic rocky coast, raging surf, stark lighthouses, and charming fishing harbors. We'll photograph in areas where Winslow Homer, Andy Wyeth, and other artists have painted for centuries. And we'll head to two of our favorite fish shacks for the famous Maine lobster and other fresh seafood. The Barefoot Contessa grew up sailing this area, and she and Arnie look forward to introducing you to their special haunts ...

Along the Oregon Coast
$1,380 w/ discounts available
Oregon has a wild and wooly coastline with cliffs that dip down to the Pacific Ocean, waves crashing against rocks, sea mists that can add mystery and mood. We ran our first workshop here in 2016 for our alumni, and it sold out almost immediately. There are also beaches, sea stacks, patterns in the dunes and water, surfers, and all manner of things to tempt your photographic eye. We look forward to seeing you here where you will have fun seeking your own vision with fellow serious photographers ...

Palouse, Echoes of Tuscany
$1,380 w/ discounts available
The landscapes of the Palouse south of Spokane and very close to the Idaho border often reminds people of the Tuscan landscape in Italy. With rolling hills that are actually ancient geological silt dunes, agricultural patterns of wheat, soy, and other crops meandering and criss-crossing as far as the eye can see, old farm houses and barns, 50s-era towns, farm machinery and abandoned trucks surrounded by grasses, this is a photographer's feast .... and instead of the more common endless sea of green, we will be photograhing a more subdued palette of chocolates, creams, golds, siennas, and browns punctuated by yelllows and yes, some greens. ...

Santa Fe and Neighbors - Stay tuned for more information.
$1,380 w/ discounts available
We are returning to Santa Fe and some of the towns around. This is an area we have known and loved for years, from the art market, to the architecture, native American cultures, and history. It has been a creative center for decades with many great photographers and artists who have lived, worked, and visited here, from Georgia O'Keeffe and Laura Gilpin to Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, Paul Strand, and other greats. And no wonder, there are so many photographic opportunities here that it boggles the mind. Take off down a side street, slip into a public courtyard, visit one of the many galleries to be inspired, explore the desert, and enjoy what this area has to offer.

Private Photo and Lightroom Workshops
There are those photographers who want the individual attention that a private workshop affords, whether for photography or Lightroom work.

We tailor these workshops to the individual or small-group needs, and our participants come away with the knowledge that helps them continue to grow as photographers, both in camera and in post-processing...

We have also instituted phone sessions at a mutually agreeable time.
