Great Falls of the Potomac River is one of the scenic wonders of the Mid-Atlantic where kayakers and Great Blue Herons brave the thundering rapids of the Potomac River. we will have a weekend of grand landscape photography, wildflowers and waterfalls. Each morning we will head out to some of my secret locations along Mather Gorge. In the early morning, we will have a chance to photograph the wonderful display of wildflowers in Algonquian Park as well as small waterfalls and cascades along Difficult Run & Scott’s Run Preserve. As always the afternoon are filled with critiques and classroom work on post processing techniques. After a short break, we re enter the park to photograph Great Blue Herons and then finish each day chasing the light and clouds above thundering rapids and waterfalls in Mather Gorge.


Economic Stimulus Package!

In these hard times of tight budgets, scares over the economy and reduced travel, I have decided to offer a number of 1/2 and 1 day workshops at various locations in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania and West Virginia at discounted prices. Packed full of fun, learning and exciting locations, these ONE DAY Workshops are a great alternative to the more expensive multi-day location workshops. We have added some really exciting venues such as waterfalls in the WV mountains, Meadowlark in bloom, HDR at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, the Pocono Mountains and Rickets Glen State Park to name a few.

If you sign up early in advance for any One Day Workshop you will recieve a discount on top of the already low price.
