Join us for an all-inclusive Maine photography workshop and tour designed to offer both men and women nature photographers an in depth learning experience to maximize their photography skills and proficiency. You are guaranteed to learn new skills while photographing in the most remote and picturesque locations in the Katahdin Region of Maine. Photograph by kayak (instruction provided, flat water only), by pontoon boat, as well as by van during this Maine photography workshop.
All skill levels welcome! Anita Mueller will be your leader and guide during this Maine photography workshop experience with Mark Picard conducting break-out sessions during the workshop. With our combined 40+ years of experience photographing in this remarkable area we will teach you all the techniques and tricks you’ll need to know to capture the beauty of Maine’s North Woods.
Take your current skills to the next level as we discuss every aspect of outdoor nature photography including, composition, depth-of-field, exposure, lighting, macro and close-up, post-production, proper digital camera operation, and more. Wildlife photography is often at times fast moving (commonly referred to as “seat of the pants”), so intangible but equally important aspects such as anticipation of subject movement and behavioral patterns of animals including Moose are also taught.
Can’t decide which photo workshop to participate in? Maybe we can help!
Mid to late June in the Katahdin Region provides opportunities to photograph a world coming to life after a long winter. Picturesque indigenous wildflowers, rushing waterways, boreal birds as well as other flora and fauna, including Moose and their newborn calves provide abundant inspiration and opportunities to learn new photography skills. Watch the commemorative video from the first Maine Woods Photography Workshop for Women for examples of subject matter photographed in June.
The September and October workshops coincide with the Fall Moose Rut and spectacular Fall Foliage that the region is noted for. Landscape photography opportunities in the Katahdin Region are magnificent and truly inspiring this time of year. We make no guarantees but this is also the best time to capture the often elusive Moose in courtship and mating behavior with a backdrop of autumn color that illuminates the region each Fall.
Still not sure which workshop to participate in? Read a recent blog post about Moose Photography Workshops and Moose Tours.
Come photograph and enjoy the beauty and wildlife of Maine’s North Woods! Our days will begin at first light, and other than a mid day break will run thru to the last light of each day. There are no long hikes involved, with most of our photography occurring near the vans or on the water. To ensure individual instruction participation is limited to five.
