4 PM to 7 PM: Introductions and meet-up. Curtis and Jon will each give a short talk explaining their individual approaches to landscape photography as well as share some techniques and equipment related tips in preparation for the hands-on portion of the workshop. Please note that we will be departing from the meeting location for our first field session so participants are encouraged to bring their camera equipment with them.
7 PM to 10 PM: First field session (location TBD, but within a reasonable proximity to our initial meeting location). Please note that it is common to see a variety of species of birds along the coast so an assortment of focal lengths ranging from very wide (14mm for example) to very long (500mm for example) could prove useful! Of course, this is primarily a landscape workshop so we recommend a range between 16mm and 200mm as an ideal starting point – anything beyond that range is a bonus!

5:30 AM: Meet and depart for a sunrise shoot along the coast. This will be a full day that will see us shoot from sunrise until sunset. Although there will be scheduled meal breaks during the day, participants are encouraged to pack food/snacks to keep up their energy levels. Participants will be pointed to any amenities in the area in case of washroom, food breaks and coffee top ups. Curtis and Jon will be on hand to answer any questions and give on-the-spot demonstrations when necessary.

5:30 AM: departure for a full morning of shooting along historic Cape Bonavista and area, capturing the magic of early light a stone’s throw away from where John Cabot first made landfall in the New World in 1497. After a great final morning of photography, we will meet up for a late, but well-earned breakfast.
10 AM – 2 PM: Editing, Critique and Q&A Session. We feel this is one of the most rewarding and beneficial parts a workshop experience with us. Participants can expect to leave with more knowledge and confidence when deciding what to do with all your lovely new images. These sessions are usually a casual affair, grab a cup of coffee and come loaded with your post-processing questions. This year we are fortunate to have two incredible image editors on the team. Both Renée and Jon are masters in the digital realm and have a wizard’s spell book worth of wisdom to bestow.
This workshop is now LIVE ($750+HST registration fee) Come be among the first on the continent to watch the sunrise.
