Savannah, Georgia Photo Workshop – March 24 to 27Wormslow Oak Lane

Shrimp BoatsJoin me for springtime in the South! I will be wintering in the Lowcountry this year and would be delighted to share the beauty of this region with you.

Founded in 1733, Savannah was laid out as a grid of squares, each surrounded by stately houses with inviting staircases, cascading plants, and beautiful flower boxes. Now numbering over 20, each square lures you in for a visit amongst magnificent, ivy-covered shade trees, wrought-iron fences, and meandering paths. There are glimpses of lush gardens through gates, and surprises everywhere. Nearby are marsh lands, ancient Live Oaks festooned in Spanish moss, shrimp boats, old ruins and historic cemeteries.

Travel to Savannah, lodging, meals, and personal expenses are your responsibility. I will provide local minivan transportation and guide the group to great locations for morning and evening shoots. Afternoons will be spent editing images and processing raw files in Photoshop for the book we’ll create capturing the beauty of Savannah and the Lowcountry.  Photographers of all levels welcome. You will finish the workshop with an awesome new body of work.

Contact me for more info. 6 participants max. – $1250. Sign up here with $500 deposit.
