Birding with Seth Benz and Landscape Photography

September 22, 2019 - September 26, 2019

New this summer and fall! Eco-Photography workshops in and around the Schoodic Peninsula in Downeast Maine.  In collaboration with Schoodic Institute,  I’ll be leading workshops to give you the opportunity to take images of our beautiful landscapes, while simultaneously demonstrating how several local and regional groups are helping preserve and protect our fragile environment.  I’m a Nikon professional nature photographer, and local gallery owner.  Through presentations, and experience, you’ll leave with a greater understanding of what’s being done and what more needs to happen to help safeguard and restore our regional ecosystems, and we’ll all have fun doing it!

PRICE REDUCTION!!!  Now $1200 per person.  Discounted group rates available.  Note* — If less than three people register, the workshop will be canceled, and you will receive a FULL refund.
