The New River Gorge

October 6th - 10th, 2021

West Virginia

Instructors - Tom Croce

Join me in our Nations newest National Park for 4 days of photographing the beautiful New River Gorge. We will spend several hours each day, as long as the light allows, shooting the at locations such as the falls at Dunloup Creek, Wolf Creek, Clay Pool Falls, Grandview and Diamond point, and the ghost town of Thurmond. We will spend one morning at Babcock State Park shooting the Glade Creek Grist Mill. The exact location and subjects will be determined by the weather and conditions. In order to insure the maximum amount of personal attention the number of participants for this workshop is limited to 8. Participants should have a strong understanding of exposure and know how to operate your camera. Each day's schedule will vary depending on the weather, but in general we will be photographing as long as the light allows. This will be hands on learning and all questions and issues will be addressed in the field.
