Photo Workshop Adventures

Photo Workshop Adventures' trips range from a weekend in Montauk to a nine-day getaway to Cuba. Regardless of the destination and timeframe, though, the trips seamlessly blend adventure with instruction from photographers. Expert leaders share insights on topics from lighting and shutter speed to the art of portraiture, while students drink in local scenery and, on some trips, ride in a helicopter.
