Spring Scenics & Wildflowers, Cass, WV

October 9 – 12:
Water Falls and Fall Foliage, NC

Every year we discuss cutting back the number of workshops we conduct, but this is one we never consider eliminating; actually, we love all the places we conduct workshops which is why we still do them. Working from one central location in Brevard, we will photograph the many waterfalls. . .

Dec. 7 – 10:
Chincoteague, Eastern Shore, VA

If you have heard of the annual pony round up in Assateague, then you are familiar with Chincoteague; they are side by side. This is an island on the Eastern Shore, home to the Chincoteague ponies. Seldom do we visit when we do not get to photograph these wonderful creatures. . .

Non-participants can attend all workshops at a reduced fee or no fee depending on what is provided to them with the exception of Tangier Island. The room availability is extremely limited on the island; therefore, a non-participant will need to pay the full fee since they will be taking a space that would otherwise be filled with a full participant. We welcome spouses and friends to come along on all other workshops; actually encourage it. But Tangier is unique. They also can not be photographers themselves or take photos during the workshop. Check the workshop page to see if an additional fee is required. Non-participant fees are paid to Linda Lane at the start of the workshop.
