2019 Photo Workshops
Joe Brady will be leading each and every 2019 Workshop and when available will be joined by his wife Diane. Joe and Diane are experienced teachers, instructors and guides who know the areas they visit and where and when to get the best photographs possible each day. Each of our workshops includes instruction on the entire process of creating better images both in the technical and creative sense.
Unless otherwise noted, transportation and lodging are not included in the tuition though we will make recommendations for each hotel we use. You book your room and pay for meals and entrance fees. We will arrange restaurants when appropriate and meeting rooms for classroom instruction when part of the workshop. Our job is to help you capture the best images possible - we are always available and want to help make your photography experience both memorable and fulfilling!
September 12-14, 2019 - Glenwood, NJ Tuition $595
Learn to expand your technique and vision, learn to better see the composition and balance that adds flow, beauty and impact to your images! The Workshop will have plenty of shooting time and during our classroom time, Joe will show how to process and shape images to take a good digital capture and transform it into a great photograph.
We will have models join us, allowing you the opportunity to practice placing a subject in the environment to help tell a story. We’ll also discuss portrait techniques using natural light and off-camera flash. With beautiful landscapes for environmental portraiture, this is a weekend you don't want to miss! Friday and Saturday will be dedicated to shooting and Sunday is our scheduled classroom time. Remember to be flexible as we may adjust activities like shooting and classroom based on the light and weather.
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. Enjoy the country charm of taking a break on the wrap around porches, strolling in the gardens, or relaxing by the stream 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 to see this lovely Inn and tour the rooms online.
Tuition is just $595 for three full fays of instruction and inspiration with environmental portraiture and mastering off-camera flash!
Cape Cod Lighthouse & Beach Photo Tour
October 10-12, 2019 (or stay thru the 13th for an extra photoshoot - more info below!), Tuition $595
Fall on the Cape!
Join us for a fun-filled long weekend photographing Lighthouses and the Seashore in and around Cape Cod, MA. We'll visit some truly beautiful spots including taking the ferry to Nantucket to visit both Sankaty Head and Brant Point Lighhouses. Out focus will be on composition that creates a sense of the environment and place each structure lives in. We start at Scituate Light on Thursday morning and then head onto the Cape. Tuition includes all touring and field instruction. We'll plan on having a classroom session as well where we will explore some editing and enhancing techniques with both Lightroom and Photoshop. Transportation, lodging and food are not included, but we will see about getting a group rate at our hotel. We'll also be doing some carpooling to minimize the number of vehicles.
If you are going to join us, why not stay Saturday night and join Joe for a morning shoot at Nobska Light near Woods Hole on the Cape. No extra charge for another morning of shooting and guidance!
By the way, spouses/partners who are not participating in the instructional portion (they are still welcome to take all the pictures they like!) of the trip are welcome to join us at no charge!
2020 Workshops Coming Soon!
We're working on the schedule for next year and will have both familiar and new locations available for you. We'll also be expanding our weekend series for those who are looking for a shorter time with more focused goals - stay tuned!
