Do you love photographing scenic places like Door County? Would you like to improve your photography? Join us on our Door County photography workshop!

October 17th-20th, 2017

Some of the most scenic places in Wisconsin are in Door County. Enjoy a four-day retreat photographing this beautiful place on the shores of Lake Michigan. This digital photography workshop is geared toward nature landscape photography as well as capturing charming Door County lighthouses and communities.

My fellow Wisconsin nature photographer Mike Murray of North Sand Photography is the co-leader of this workshop. With two of us, there is lots of one-on-one time with each student.

Our Door County photography workshop is more about a creative approach to photography and not overly technical. It is suited for anyone from beginners to serious amateurs. Some moderate hiking is involved in this workshop.

The comfy Landmark Resort is our centrally located home base in scenic Egg Harbor. The Landmark offers many amenities, including an on-site restaurant and luxuries like pools and spas. Most rooms have a kitchen and fridge, perfect for an on-the-go photographer’s schedule.

Each day we explore the photographic opportunities of Door County.  When we are back at the Landmark Resort we spend time talking about your photos in a fun and educational photo review. The review is a great exchange of ideas and a time to learn from each other.
