Newfoundland photography workshops

Newfoundland Photography Workshop

Newfoundland is an area known for its rocky coast, pounding surf, stunning lighthouses, it is nicknamed the Rock for a very good reason. However, Newfoundland also has tremendous diversity in its: landscape, geology, birds, icebergs, whales, dolphins, moose, caribou, fossils, and picturesque fishing villages.

Our workshops will take place primarily on the Avalon peninsula. You will learn how to embrace your passion for photography, to hone your vision, to develop your technical ability and to create outstanding images. You will also learn how to manage and prepare your images. Creating an image using a digital camera is only half the process.
