August in Maine, where the Atlantic meets the coast, is delightful. With sunny and foggy days you will see the various moods of this craggy area that Margo and Arnie love to photograph. Mid-coast Maine is an area known for its dramatic rocky coast, pounding surf, wonderful lighthouses and charming fishing harbors and coves dotted with lobster boats. You will hear the deep thrum of the diesel engines as the fishing boats head out to sea every morning. And we must not forget the famous Maine fir trees – Land of the pointed Firs – which add wonderful elements to the coastline.
Margo and Arnie will take you to areas where Winslow Homer, Andy Wyeth and other artists have painted for centuries.
We are based right on New Harbor and within walking distance of one of our favorite fish shacks. Bring along your spouse, significant other or friend – always welcome at our workshops and who instantly become part of our group.
As many of our alumni know, the Barefoot Contessa grew up sailing this area, so she knows it well and looks forward to introducing you to her special haunts, now long shared with Arnie, 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 the heart of 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.
