Anyone Interest in an early Spring Waterfall Workshop?

It’s been a long time since I ran one of my waterfall workshops.  Primarily because of the pandemic, it’s been a long time since I have offered any of my workshops or classes.  I miss spending time with folks exploring the wonderful beauty of our special corner of New England.  I want to get back to teaching, but first I need to find out if people are interested and comfortable with these kinds of explorations. 


So, I’ve decided to sample the interest among my local friends for another Weekend Waterfall Workshop.  At best, I would expect only a small group, but hell, even one participant would be a good excuse to get out for some flowing water shooting.  


If there is interest, I would like to take my usual approach to the workshop.  A Friday evening gathering at my house to make plans based on the recent weather and to discuss some basics of falling water photography.  A full day would follow on Saturday to explore regional falls and finishing with a half day on Sunday.  If there is interest, and comfort, we could also get together Saturday evening to review the results of the first day’s explorations.


Happily, we have moved a long way from the height of the pandemic, but still, we will need to take precautions.  We encourage vaccinations and the use of face masks, and we will not be crowding many people into each car. I think that this can be done with reasonable safety.


I have found that these weekend workshops are instructional and a lot of fun.  I know that I will be out shooting the spring water and I would love to be joined by a few of my friend, new and old. 


Please get in touch soon if you would like to join us.
