The Catskill Mountains and adjacent Hudson Valley have long provided artistic inspiration and will be the location of this unique workshop. Beginning in the 1800â€™s, artists and writers looked to the beauty of this landscape for inspiration and continue to do so today. This is where the Hudson River School of Art began and where many of todayâ€™s photographers/artists continue to work.
This workshop is geared toward photographers who have a working knowledge of the Wet plate process and is the perfect opportunity to either fine tune or advance your skills while working. Each day will be spent visiting and photographing a unique location in the surrounding Catskill Mountains during the best season of all~Autumn. Yes, I know Wet Plate is a B & W process, but the pure beauty of the Mountains during the peak of Autumn is nothing short of inspirational.
Each morning we will meet at my studio, in Woodstock, and begin our day by traveling to a new location. Upon arrival at our chosen site, we will set up on location, utilizing my traveling darkroom, and spend the entire day photographing to our hearts content.
Lunches will be provided, as will bagels, coffee and juice in the morning.
