Come along on this journey and be swept away by the breathtaking landscape and ocean views, delight in the culture and the pace of ‘Island Time’ and enchant in the New England architecture and the charm of the people. Explore Vinalhaven Island, 12 miles from the mainland, with one of the largest lobster fishing fleets in Maine and a thriving arts community.
The topography of this island is carved with many inlets and peninsulas. Excursions to hard-to-find locations and hidden spots offer beautiful bay scenery, serene preserves, granite quarries, spruce-covered islands, rocky coastlines and working farms. Your guide has been bringing photographers to Vinalhaven for more than 30 years. Her connections there will allow you to experience the island like a local.
This image-making adventure will include photo demonstrations and discussions, hands-on exercises to practice techniques and critiques. Group size will be small and you will have a lot of individual attention. Take advantage of around-the-clock photo opportunities from sunrise to sunset and the star-filled evening sky.
