Jekyll Island Landscape Photography Workshop

Jekyll Island
February 24 - 28, 2010
Weds at 10:00 AM - Sun at noon
Jekyll Island, GA
Instructor:  Craig Tanner
Tuition:  $1095
Deposit: $300
Join us on one of America's most beautiful barrier islands for 4 and 1/2 days of photography of classic beachscapes, marshscapes and turn of the century architecture. The focus of this landscape-based workshop is in the field shooting with one on one instruction followed up by supportive image reviews.
The general schedule for this workshop consists of early morning shooting sessions to capture the magic light at sunrise, classroom presentations and image critique sessions, digital darkroom techniques for post processing your images, a lab where Craig and Marti are present to assist you with selection of your images for critique and help with Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, and evening shooting sessions. There is also one optional night shooting session on Driftwood Beach. Presentations on this workshop will include but not be limited to composition for the grand scale landscape, composition for architecture, night photography, and Adobe Photoshop techniques relevant to the types of assignments we will have on the workshop.
This workshop will include multiple shooting sessions at Driftwood Beach, the world famous tree strewn beach on the north end of Jekyll Island.  We will also visit and photograph the island's stunning marshes and the art deco period architecture of the Jekyll Pier.
In addition, we will photograph Jekyll Island's architectural wonderland - the Historic District of restored summer homes from the golden era of Jekyll Island when it was a playground for the wealthiest families in the country. We will photograph the beautiful summer  cottages here once belonging to families with names like Rockefeller, Crane, Gould and Vanderbilit.  Faith Chapel, the church built on the island to serve the famous summer residents, contains a stained glass window made and personally installed by Louis Comfort Tiffany. A dramatic canopy of massive, moss covered live oak trees completes the magical atmosphere found in the island's historic district.
This workshop is limited to 14 participants to allow for maximum individual instruction for participants.

“The Jekyll Island Workshop was an incredible experience. Craig is an incredible teacher. He is knowledgeable, supportive and inspirational. I did gain a lot of technical knowledge about photography, but even more important was how much I learned about the creative process and how motivated I was to get out and take pictures when I got home. Craig’s entire focus was on the students and their learning during the 5 1/2 days of the workshop. The supportive attitude of the instructors quickly filtered down to the participants. It was a great group and they served as additional inspiration. I think I learned something from everyone who participated. There was a wide variety of skill and knowledge among the participants, but I think everyone found the workshop valuable. My wife, a relative beginner learned an incredible amount, as did I, a more experienced photographer. I could not recommend any workshop more highly.” -- Steve K.,  Jekyll Island 2009
“This was my first TME workshop and I was impressed by the knowledge imparted to the participants, the organization of our time and the assignments that seriously made you stop and think.  I believe I truly tapped into seeing the whole picture.  Craig's critiques really made me look at my photography in a different light.  Needless to say, all the participants went home with some amazing shots.  I'm looking forward to my next workshop with you guys!!!” -- Emma F.,  Jekyll Island 2009
