Gore Mountain Photo Workshop

Intensive One Day Photo Experience
Maximum of 15 participants

$90. (includes lunch and gondola)

Rated Easy
9:30 AM - 5:30 PM
While each season in the Adirondacks has its own special qualities, none are quite so spectacular as the colors of the trees in the Adirondacks in fall. Learn how to capture the beauty of this season in this one day intensive workshop at Gore Mountain, North Creek.

Enjoy some great opportunities for photographing mountain landscapes and wildflowers, as well as streams and cascades. While the class is geared toward DSLRs with interchangeable lenses, many of the techniques can be applied to full featured point and shoot cameras as well. Just bring along your photo gear and enthusiasm for extending your photographic possibilities and experimenting with new photo techniques. The 8 hour day features about 4 to 5 hours of instruction using a detailed PowerPoint, including time for working with the cameras and Q & A - plus a gondola ride and time to experiment with the camera techniques and photography principles in the field.

Our Comprehensive One Day Gore Mountain Photo Workshop for beginner to intermediate photographers features instruction on many facets of photography including - camera basics, photography principles, digital camera features and menus, lenses, RAW files, exposure, HDR, depth of field, motion, composition, lighting.

The class begins with and builds on the most basic camera principles to help a person gain complete control over every shot they take. The key to taking better photos is knowing how to take the shot you want, rather than wondering how you managed to get a nice photo!

The workshop begins at 9:30, with an introduction, and the Powerpoint. We'll take a short break about noon for lunch. Options include:

Grilled Burger, Chicken Breast, or Hot Dog - with Chips, Cookie, and a 20 oz. drink

After lunch, we'll finish any discussion, and then head to the top of Bear Mtn. in the gondola to photograph the spectacular landscape views. During the afternoon I will set up a couple of different mini clinics to offer help with cameras and teach specifc techniques.

This workshop is rated EASY - most of the photography will be reasonably close to an access point with minimal rough terrain.

A maximum of 15 participants, allows some opportunity for individual questions and interaction throughout the day during both the instruction and discussion time, as well as during the afternoon photo shoots.

The workshop fee includes all instruction and handouts as well as lunch and the gondola ride. Bring along any additional food and drink you might want for the rest of the day.

Please bring along a camera, lenses, tripod, memory cards, batteries, your camera manual, and outdoor gear for mountain weather. Please check the Equipment List link on this page for suggestions.

We look forward to photographing with you and working with you on this nature photography workshop.
Please contact us with any questions!
