Travel Photography

Travel photography is a broad genre covering so many bases. It’s an incorporation of landscape, environmental portrait, and street photography all rolled into one. And because travel photographers are naturally wandering souls, we strive to document the world around us in its purest form. It is important to have both the technical understanding of our cameras as well as the creative ideas, to produce images that stand out of the crowd. In this Intro to Travel Photography seminar, we will cover topics such as understanding our cameras controls, what gear may suit you, as well as how to compose some great travel images.

Macro Photo Conference 2019 with Mike Moats

This is a unique annual photo conference dedicated to macro photography. I’ve always wanted to design a program where professional photographers could come together and teach their skills in macro photography and post processing techniques to those who want to learn, and advance their macro photography to the next level.

This Macro Photo Conference will have plenty of how-to lectures and five hours of photographing with varying subject matter. The speakers will be available to help participants with composing subjects and technical aspects. So you need to bring your camera, macro lens, and tripod. The Macro Photo Conference is for all skill levels.

Speakers will have their books available, and will be happy to sign them for you.

New England photo retailer Hunt’s Photo will be there selling lots of photo products. Tamron will have a tech rep on hand with lenses available for you to try out.

There will be a limit of 100 participants, and it should sell out quick. Last year we had participants from 27 different states.
