The Outer Banks are part of our own back yard that we know so well, and we will go to great locations where you can celebrate your passion for photography, hone your seeing and imaging skills, and learn about the magic of light to make wonderful photographs.

Who knows, you might join the increasing number of photographers who have won awards with images they have created in our workshops out here!

We'll be based in Nags Head, near all our locations, making it easier to get up for those early-morning shoots! Every day, the land- and sea-scapes take on a different look, depending upon the weather and time of day.

There is so much more than just lighthouses to photograph, but for those who loves these beacons of light, each lighthouse, with its unique shape and pattern, has a particular flash sequence, so even at night or early in the morning, you'll know which one you are seeing and photographing. As someone who grew up sailing, I can tell you how important that is!

Surrounding the lighthouses are the salt marshes with their many varieties of reeds and grasses, small skiffs dotting the estuaries, changing reflections, wildlife, and gorgeous sunrises and sunsets.

Even in inclement weather, particularly in inclement weather, our locations are dramatic against a stormy sky. The National Seashore has many other interesting subjects — the patterns of the sand dunes, sea oats and beach peas, and surf pounding the deserted beaches.

Scouting Option:
For those who want more time with Margo and Arnie, we offer the opportunity to scout and shoot with them before most of our domestic workshops. We limit this to two people per day who ride in the car with the instructors. During these days while Arnie and Margo do their own photography and final scouting for the workshop, there is also lots of individual instruction and discussions about photography.

Contact us for details.

taking a break from
seeking their own vision.
Practical Details:
We start out with some technical information before heading out for our first afternoon of photography. Our workshops include the following:
  • Maximum 6-to-1 ratio students to instructors;
  • Primer booklet to help you get started;
  • Early-morning and late-afternoon shoots for domestic workshops;
  • Daily downloading of your images and processing (we use the latest version of Lightroom);
  • Lots of individual instruction in both the field and classroom;
  • Daily critiques, both individual and group for domestic workshops and most overseas ones;
  • Discussions on various aspects of photography, including digital workflow; and
  • Lots of fun and frivolity throughout!
One critical note:  if you are contemplating buying a new camera, please make sure you have a basic working knowledge of it BEFORE you come to one of our workshops. There are so many variations amongst camera brands, and even within each brand, far too many for us to know and thus be able to help you.

FAQs:
If you have not already done so, be sure to check our FAQs for questions you may have as well as for equipment and installed downloads you need to bring to the workshop including, if necessary, the free, 30-day, trial versions of Adobe and other imaging products.

Cost:   $1,280 w/ discounts available
