Puffin_Photo_Tour_MG_4650Photograph Acadia National Park and the Maine Coastline with professional photographer John Slonina. We will be visiting one of our favorite places to photograph. It is one of the most dramatic areas on the east coast. Experience the magic of the rock bound coast and soaring granite cliffs where the mountains meet the sea.

John has been photographing at Acadia for 20+ years.

Our Acadia photo workshop and tours are held twice a year. We go in the June and also October.

Beautiful forests, mountain peaks, wildflowers, birds, lakes, streams, waterfalls, lighthouses, tide pools, carriage roads etc. We also will be on the lookout for park wildlife including seals, deer, beavers, eiders, and foxes.

Be one of first people to see and photograph the rising sun in the country. Cadillac Mountain sweeping vistas has a view you will never forget. The days are paced to maximize photo opportunities and the schedule will be flexible to maximize getting the best light.

We will travel to several different locations (depending on the lighting conditions) starting at sunrise. We will conclude with sunset. Each day will be a photographic adventure.

June Trip: Since sunrise is early and Sunset around 8:30pm. There will be a long break in between morning and afternoon shoots. This would be a great time for a break, nap, etc. We will also have some classroom time to review and critique work, digital techniques, digital processing tips ect. John will be bringing a digital projector for presentations.

One day  we will be driving two hours north for an a boat trip to an island off the Maine coast to photograph puffins and seals. From the blind on the island we will target puffins, razorbills, and terns. Some of the birds are just a few feet away. On the boat ride back we will look for seals. The Boat ride is included in the tour fee. On the ride back to Bar Harbor we will explore some hidden gems and quaint fishing harbors. lighthouses and seaside cliffs.
