THE CAPE MAY PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS, Cape May, New Jersey, April 27-May 1.
PHOTOGRAPHING PEOPLE AND PLACES. This is a fast paced, very inexpensive workshop for intermediate and advanced photographers who wish to work in and around a small gem of a village on the ocean at the southern tip of New Jersey. I taught a workshop in Cape May last April; it's a wonderful time and place to shoot and visit. Call or email Nancy Ori for more information and registration; 908-790-8820, email@example.com
IL CHIOSTRO ROME AND TUSCANY WORKSHOPS. www.ilchiostro.com
ROME: May 7-14 This seven-day workshop explores the architecture, people, markets and mood of the eternal city. Daily shooting and two field trips to the nearby countryside are planned. This is a very affordable, value-laden workshop. It was sold out last May so if interested, think about it soon.
TUSCANY: May 15-21 I've taught this workshop five times and it's always fun and informative. We stay at a working vineyard in the heart of the Clasico Chianti region of Tuscany, just nine kilometers from Siena. We will interact with the Tuscan people, venture to small hillside towns, visit both Florence and Siena, and photograph the countryside in beautiful Tuscan light. Again, it's a great value for all that is offered.
