Photo Workshops with Instructor Joe Brady
Arches & Canyonlands Photo Workshop
$1895 Tuition for Workshop, or $2595 includes 5 nights lodging!
Join us for an amazing time in the incredible Landscapes around Moab, Utah! Arches and Canyonlands National Parks along with Dead Horse and Goblin Valley State Parks will provide a unique combination of formations to keep us busy with great photography. This is a popular time of year to visit these two parks, but both are large and diverse areas, so crowds in the parks are not an issue. This is actually a fairly mild time of year around Moab with temperatures raging up to 70° in the afternoon and into the mid 30°s overnight. We will visit all the iconic spots in the region including Delicate Arch in Arches, Mesa Arch in Canyonlands and the overlook in Dead Horse State Park.

We will explore topics that challenge many photographers and teach you the skills you need to improve the quality of your images. We will have models join us each day, allowing you the opportunity to practice new portrait techniques using both natural light and fill flash. With beautiful landscapes to capture and great locations for environmental portraiture, this is a weekend you don't want to miss! Our wonderful hosts are Lauren and Leigh at the Apple Valley Inn, in Glenwood, NJ.
This historic 1831 home offers a wonderful backdrop for the workshop. You choose from their six guest rooms, each beautifully appointed and offering modern day conveniences of private baths, TV/DVD players in each room and wireless internet access.

that runs along the Inn. To start your day each morning you will be treated to a full served country breakfast. Visit their website at applevalleyinn.com to see this lovely Inn and tour the rooms online.
Join us for a weekend of photography filled with inspiration, education, sharing and fun! If your non-photographer spouse or significant other wishes to come along, they can relax at the Inn, visit a nearby spa, or take a hike on the Appalachian Trail.
Fall Foliage Photo Workshop
Based out of our studio in Warwick, NY • October 21-22, 2017 • Tuition $495
Beautiful mountain streams and waterfalls and a painter’s palette of fall colors provide the perfect backdrop for a fantastic weekend photography workshop. On the border of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, the Delaware River cuts through the Appalachian Mountains Ridge creating the Delaware Water Gap. This geologic feature creates a smorgasbord of scenic vistas from the hillsides, beautiful lakes and rivers and of course, the stunning waterfalls off the Pocono Plateau. We’ll also take advantage of the surrounding scenery of the Hudson Valley as we follow the light for the best photo opportunities. Join award-winning instructors Joe Brady and Diane Bollen for this guided workshop and raise your landscape photography to a new level.
Landscape photography can be a great challenge for any photographer and we will explore metering and composition so that you can always capture the best digital image file possible. You’ll learn techniques to create beautiful flowing water in the streams and waterfalls that we will visit and we’ll take advantage of the character that old barns and houses in the region bring to the landscape. We’ll end up with a classroom session in our studio in Warwick, NY.
You’ll learn how to process some images to bring out the real beauty and shape the light for a final print. This Workshop is limited to 8 participants to ensure personal attention, so register soon to reserve your spot!
