Beauty of the Bayou 2024 session 1

Nov 7th-11th Nov 2024 ($3800)

Discover the beauty of the Bayou in a workshop experience that is uniquely captivating. Gliding amongst giant cypress trees hundreds of years old,  branches decked with colorful foliage and adorned by the gossamer of hanging moss. As mist  rises from the water of the flooded forest it creates an ethereal landscape with innumerable photographic opportunities. Soft light filtering through the branches, reflections dancing in the calm waters, the sense of serenity of this landscape is unparalleled. 

We will be in time to witness the autumn glory as the myriad hues of the season fill the landscape with vibrance. There is a plethora of wildlife with 65 different species of amphibians and reptiles, 250 species of birds including the majestic Bald eagle. Each day we will be exploring a different location.


Activity Level : Mild. Prior kayaking experience useful but not mandatory.

The small group workshop is set up to incorporate hands on learning for both acquisition of images in the field as well as optimal post processing for image rendition. Each participant is encouraged to identify their personal style and fine tune individual creative vision.

Each day we will be chasing the weather and light for optimal atmospheric conditions. During the day we will be taking breaks to  incorporate post processing plus image critique sessions.
