Acadia National Park Photography Workshop 2017
Dates: October 14-17, 2017
Location: Bar Harbor, Maine
Instructor(s): Kurt Budliger & Joe Rossbach
Acadia National Park in Maine quite possibly could be the crown jewel of the east coast. The park features miles of undeveloped rocky coast, towering granite summits with awe inspiring views, myriad lakes and ponds and countless opportunities for intimate forest scenes and quiet harbors. It’s also arguably the east’s best fall foliage hot spot. Join us for this 4-day inspiration packed exploration of this magnificent park.

The workshop will kick off on Saturday October 14, 2017 at 2:00 PM at the Bar Harbor Hotel – The Bluenose with a short reception and slideshow and then it’s into the field we go to make images. There is no “set” daily schedule, rather we keep things flexible in order to best respond to the weather and light available for making images. Typically, we’ll be out for sunrise, shoot until mid morning and then take a break for a meal and brief rest. We’ll convene in the conference room for instruction, post processing and critique during the mid-day hours when the light is typically less conducive to photography. We’ll then head back out into the field in the late afternoon and evening, ending our session after sunset. We’ll end our time together with a fun group dinner to celebrate our last sunset shoot of the workshop on Tuesday October 17.
There will be no strenuous hiking involved during the workshop and most locations will be close to the road. Some locations, however may involve a short hike of less than a mile with no serious elevation gains. We will be spending a lot of time shooting along the rocky Maine coast. The terrain there is very uneven and can be somewhat slippery. Hiking boots and a modest level of health and fitness will greatly enhance your experience.
