We believe in capturing the best light some our workshops include sunrise and sunset shoots (weather permitting). Early morning and later afternoon has the best lighting for photography. Itís also the time wildlife is most active. Also early morning has some other advantages less traffic and people and less wind. The day is paced to maximize photo opportunities and the schedule will be flexible to maximize getting the best light.

Thursday Afternoon: Group meeting and introductions then evening Photoshoot.

Friday and Saturday Morning:

Sunrise Photoshoot then breakfast at a local restaurant.

Mid Day: Because of the extensive daylight hours at this northern latitude at this time of year we will have a mid day break. We can still expect long days in the field. This is a great time to relax, eat lunch, sleep to get recharged for the afternoon shoot. This would be a great time to review your images and John will be available for questions and critiques. We also will be doing an slideshow and photo critiques.

Friday and Saturday Afternoon: We will be doing an afternoon shoot till sunset then dinner. One afternoon we will be doing a sunset boat ride on Lake Umbagog. On the boat we hope to photograph loons, eagles, and moose and of course landscape photography.

Sunday Morning: Sunrise Photoshoot

Please note: Wildlife is extremely unpredictable. We will be in one of the top areas of New England for wildlife photography In the past we have had an extremely high success rate but we canít guarantee we will see any particular species.


Transportation to field locations is included. The meeting place will be the Lopstick Lodge in Cabins in Pittsburg NH.


Not included. We will visit some local restaurants.


The hotel is included in this tour.
