Acadia National Park is, by far, one of the smallest and most diverse parks in the United States. Everything except the ocean is on a miniature scale in a compact area. From the sparsely vegetated hills of pink granite a photographer can walk down through five distinct environments to the edge of the Atlantic ocean, all within 40 minutes. With the National Park’s extensive hiking trails, motor road, and unique automobile-free carriage road system, accessing all of Acadia is within reach. The gentle hills of the landscape and well designed access means that photographer’s don’t have to be mountaineers, unless they want to be, to enjoy all the scenery.

The Discovering Acadia workshop is designed to cover the basic theories of photography, help cultivate a photographic eye in a landscape of subtle features, and to help the photographer capture a collection of images that communicate the essential experience of Acadia.

The Maine coast is famous for it’s fishing industry, rocky coastline, and quaint towns, all of which exist on Mount Desert Island. The element that clearly separates Acadia from the rest of the New England landscape are the bald granite mountains by the sea, crystal clear lakes nestled in the valleys. This landscape creates many different habitats, including the coast, salt marsh, bog, stream, pond, lake, coniferous and deciduous forest, and mountain top.

Discovering Acadia is the workshop of choice to take if you are interested in bettering your photographic skills in one of the best places to do so. We look forward to you joining us this season.
