André is leading two Photography Workshops in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. The Workshop will be based in Historic Lunenburg at The Boscawen Inn, a beautiful inn in a quiet setting.
The week will be spent photographing quaint fishing villages, historic towns such as Mahone Bay and Lunenburg, and an outing to Peggy's Cove for afternoon light and sunset. Most days will have a short lecture, followed by an evaluation of participant's work. The emphasis of the teaching programs will be on various techniques such as Dreamscapes, various Montages, Panning, as well as an introduction to Contemplative Photography. This workshop is for participants who know their camera equipment well, and have a good sense of visual design. Also, participants must be able to process their images. Having a version of Photoshop or Photoshop Elements is useful for experimenting with montage techniques (using Layers).
Participants will fly in to Halifzx, Nova Scotia (YHZ) airport which is 1 & 1/2 hour drive to Lunenburg. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from the workshop.

Waterproof footwear is necessary for shooting at water’s edge and for early mornings as there is often heavy dew. Bring a hat, gloves and warm jacket. Mornings can be chilly at this time of year.
Digital photographers must bring a laptop computer. Photoshop or Photoshop Elements are excellent tools for processing, and very useful for creating montages. Lightroom is a good processing program, but you will be limited as you can’t work with Layers.
Tripod: bring a sturdy tripod with good ball-and-socket head. If you are buying a tripod, we strongly suggest that you look at models by Manfrotto. Tripod base we recommend are the 190 or 055 series. For a tripod head, you can choose a Manfrotto ballhead or joystick. We suggest you bring your camera to a good camera store and select the one you are most comfortable operating.
Lenses: bring whichever lenses you have. A range between 24-300 is ideal.
A cable release (shutter release) is extremely useful.
Tripod Rental: We will have four tripods available for rental. With all the weight restrictions with air travel, this will make it easier if you are flying.
Rental fee is $40. for the week. As quantities are limited, please
reserve when you register for a workshop.
