Natural Connections Photo Workshops

TUITION - $1195 - Limited to 13 participants -- FULL -- Sign up for our Waitlist!

If you haven't experienced the coast of Maine, you are missing out!  The sounds, the colors, the smells and especially the tastes are an absolue feast for the senses.  And it makes for some great photography too!! Join Jeff & Ledra on a PHOTO-feast throughout the middle portion of the Maine Coast -- or 'Down East' as the locals might say.

This workshop starts in Camden, commonly referred to as the "Jewel of the Maine Coast," and for good reason due to its amazing harbor views, shopping and dining. We finish up in Bar Harbor. Home to beautiful Acadia National Park, Mount Desert Island, and a quaint seaside town - it encompasses everything Maine has to offer from mountains to sea.  You will get an exciting variety on this workshop. From picturesque little towns to working harbors and jagged coasts to serene colorful forests - we will shoot it all!

This workshop begins in Camden at 2pm on Tuesday and will end around noon on Sunday in Bar Harbor.


**Cancellation Policy - Understand that on our longer trips where most people have to make extensive travel plans in order to join us, our cancellation policy is slightly more strict.  On this workshop, the last day for you to cancel for a refund is August 1, 2017.  If you cancel before this date you will receive your payment back minus a $50 transaction fee.  After this date, there will be no refunds unless we can fill your position with someone from the wait list. For this reason WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO PURCHASE TRIP INSURANCE TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR INVESTMENT.

There are a couple of ways you can do this.  Fly round trip into AND out of Portland, ME (PWM) or Bangor, ME (BGR).  We will start our workshop in Camden and then end up in Bar Harbor.  You could fly into Portland and out of Bangor if you choose, but it could be more expensive regarding flights and car rental to do so.  
So it's up to the individual.  If you do a round trip through either airport, just make sure to plan enough time to drive to and from the workshop to catch your flights.  

Car Rental:

Each participant is responsible for their transportation to, from and during the workshop.  Many people choose to go in together on a car rental to save money. We generally require some carpooling during the workshop anyway, so you may want to consider sharing the cost with someone else. 

Several car rental companies exist at each of the above airports. 


For this Workshop:
Weather - This workshop could take you through many shooting environments, so be prepared for whatever the weather may bring.  Dress in layers with comfortable shoes with good tread. Be sure to have rain gear for you and your camera and lots of warm clothing for early morning shoots.  Hats, gloves, scarves and a wind proof coat will be necessary on this trip. 

Conditions - This workshop isn't one of our more difficult workshops, physically speaking.  With that said, there will be some walking on uneven surfaces and climbing around on costal rocks.  Much of the shooting will be done near the car or walking around flat bays.  

Accessories - We do not 'require' that you purchase any specific equipment for this workshop.  With that said, you REALLY need a polarizer for EVERY lens.  If you do not wish to purchase a polarizer for each lens, then consider purchasing one for your largest lens opening and then purchasing step down ring adapters to fit it to your other lenses.  If you are not familiar with a polarizer, we will show you how to use it during the workshop.  To read more about filters click here or email us with any questions.  You will also need a tripod, period.  If you have any questions about tripods, please read here, or contact us with any questions.
