We are returning to Monhegan Island. Monhegan, from Monchiggon, Algonquian for ‘out-to-sea island’, about ten miles off the rocky Maine coast, has been a haunt and artist’s paradise since the late 1850s. No wonder. Barely one square mile in mass, it is laced with some 12 miles of trails that lead you through fragrant forests, along cliff edges, by artists’ cottages and charming fish houses, even a weathered lighthouse. Above the raging seas on the Atlantic side one can sometimes find photographic treasures cast off by some bygone storm.

There are distinct aspects to this island, so you will not get bored – the charming village, woodland trails (bring bug repellant), flowers, craggy coastlines, fishing boats off shore and plenty of artists, many famous in the art world. And don’t forget the famous Maine fir trees – Land of the pointed Firs – which add wonderful elements to the coastline.

We will be headquartered at an inn right near the ferry, and they will bring your luggage up to the hotel for you.

As mentioned in other Maine workshops, and as many of our alumni know, the Barefoot Contessa grew up sailing this area, so she knows it well. Arnie and she look forward to introducing you to special places where you will be able to celebrate your passion for photography, hone your seeing and imaging skills and learn about the magic of light to make wonderful photographs. And you will be doing it right in an area that has produced many of Margo’s photographs that have been published in calendars, travel magazines and coffee-table books.

After the workshop, plan on taking an extra few days to explore this area on your own, return to places we have taken you and use your new-found knowledge to make more beautiful images. Or come early, if you are joining us for summertime on the Maine Coast afterwards.
