Based in Lubec, Maine this workshop’s Start/End dates are Tuesday July 10th at 3pm – Sunday July 15th at Noon. This workshop INCLUDES a PUFFIN BOAT Cruise (value of ~ $140 is included in your workshop fee).  Not guaranteed to land due to tidal concerns but in 95% of the excursions we’re able to land on the island to photograph these entertaining birds up close! We will maximize our time in the field shooting a multitude of subjects as well as including two classroom style image review sessions.  The fee for this comprehensive workshop with two workshop leaders is only $1795 per person.  A $500 Deposit is required to reserve your spot.  This is one of Hunt Photo’s ‘Photo Adventure Series’ for 2018 with Don Toothaker.  I will be a guest instructor on this workshop!

Hotel IS included in your fee as is the Boat ride!

Note: Workshop fee Includes boat ride ($140 value) to photograph the Puffins!

Concerned about what lens you’ll need?  Don’t be as the Puffins are fairly close to us when we land on the island and go into blinds.  A 70-300mm lens on a crop sensor camera (Nikon D5300/D7200 or Canon Rebel/70D/7D) will be fine. On a full frame camera a 100-400mm, or 80-400mm, focal length is recommended.

Tucked into the far northeast corner of Maine is the fishing village of Lubec.  Once a thriving fishing community, Lubec is now a quiet coastal town surrounded by the remnants of their fishing legacy and the rugged, sprawling Bold Coast.  Lubec features Quoddy Head Lighthouse, fishing harbors, and nearby Campobello Island (Passport required) as well as many photographic opportunities along the coast.  We will spend one day observing and photographing the rare Atlantic Puffin offshore on nearby Seal Island.

We will maximize our time in the field shooting a multitude of subjects as well as incorporating classroom instruction and image critiques.  Subjects covered include the following:

  • Exposure
  • Composition
  • Metering
  • Use of Lenses
  • Use of Light Modifiers
  • Subject Development
  • Creative Thinking
  • Shooting in Low Light
  • Long Exposures
  • Use of Filters (polarizers and ND)
