Join us for a special 5-day/4-night workshop on the beautiful coast of Maine as we photograph Acadia National Park, the Schoodic Peninsula and Mount Desert Island. The workshop includes lodging for four nights and all meals (except one lunch and dinner in Bar Harbor) and a lobster dinner (alternatives available).

We’ll be based at the Schoodic Institute near Schoodic Point. Known as the quiet side of Acadia, the Schoodic Peninsula offers a variety of opportunities to experience Maine’s rugged coast – from the cliffs at Raven’s Nest to the summit of Schoodic Head along a spruce and fir trail to the giant slabs of pink granite that extend into the open Atlantic at Schoodic Point. Seaside villages such as Birch Harbor, Prospect Harbor and the quaint Corea feature scenes of classic downeast Maine – fishing boats, lobster traps, working docks and more. On Mount Desert Island, we’ll explore picturesque locales such as Bar
Harbor, the Acadia coast, Jordan Pond, Eagle Lake, as well as places off the beaten track.

Most days will begin with a sunrise and morning shoot, then break and free time around lunch, editing classroom lessons, discussion and reviews in the afternoon, and a late afternoon/early evening shoot.
We’ll also have an optional night shoot. The weather, sun, moon and tides will guide our itinerary.

With two instructors and a limit of 12 students, you’ll have plenty of time for personalized instruction. John and Betty will offer tips and techniques in the field and classroom to help you get the most out of
your workshop and develop your skills. Instruction includes:
– Classic and creative landscape photography
– Long exposure and camera movement
– Depth of field
– Night photography
– Use of filters
– Processing in Lightroom, Photoshop and other programs.

What’s Included:
– Four nights lodging at the Schoodic Institute. All participants will have their own private bedroom in a shared apartment. Bedrooms will have either a double bed or a twin (we can’t guarantee bed type). Accommodations include WiFi, DirectTV, hard line telephones, fully equipped kitchens, as well as dining and living rooms.
– All meals except one lunch and one dinner in Bar Harbor.
– Instruction with two experienced teachers and a low student:teacher ratio

Betty Wiley: Betty Wiley is a freelance photographer who resides in Massachusetts on Cape Cod in the beautiful, little town of Yarmouth Port. Originally from Las Vegas, Nevada, she moved to Massachusetts over 30 years ago and bought a home on the Cape with her husband in 2006. She quickly fell in love with the natural beauty of the area and since then, she has spent countless hours exploring the Cape with her camera. She believes that good light is often key to a successful photograph. Often, the storms that move through the area create dramatic light and beautiful clouds and when that happens, she usually grabs her camera and hops in her car as the skies begin to clear. Betty is a frequent contributor to a number of magazines on Cape Cod and the South Shore. She was featured in a photo essay which appeared in the July (2011) issue of Cape Cod magazine which showcased her images taken on Cape Cod and the islands. She has numerous magazine assignments and covers to her credit and is an experienced speaker, instructor and workshop leader and has received numerous accolades for her teaching and on-location workshops.
