The East End’s charm will captivate and arrest your soul.

Long Island Photo Adventure Vacations – Inspire, Create and Learn.

Long Island’s East End is located about 60-90 miles east of Manhattan and is made up of its North and South Forks. The East End dates back to the early 1600’s when the British settled there, and before that when Native American Indians called this fertile land their home. The charm of the North Fork, the tranquility of Shelter Island, the sophistication of the South Fork, and the innocence of Montauk, all lend to its unique personality. From a photographers perspective, there are countless opportunities to capture images that tell a story. From the roadside farm stands and the farmers that have worked their fields for generations, to the world class vineyards, which have slowly replaced many of the farms. The East End is not just home to farmers and wineries, but to artists, fisherman, boat builders, horse trainers, marina operators and many mom and pop main street businesses. Its landscapes are breathtaking, its seascapes are captivating, and its people, genuine and inviting. Long Island is home to Photo Workshop Adventures, so what better place to teach photography, then in our own beautiful backyard. Join us for another amazing adventure of a lifetime.

This adventure is designed not only to guide you to the most photogenic locations carefully planned for the best light, but to aid you in mentally visualizing a scene before capturing the decisive moment. Our aim is to raise your awareness and spark your creativity so that you not only go home with images to be proud of, but use your new found skills to improve and expand your photographic technique in general. Apart from the technical aspect of learning your camera settings and capabilities, you will learn how to turn an ordinary image into an extraordinary image by using your own creativity.

In addition, you will become knowledgeable on how to survey the landscape, utilize and approach your environment, photograph people indigenous to the region and the cultural considerations and challenges of photographing in a foreign country. Our week together will include individual and group discussions, inspiring ideas and great fun. We cannot think of a better location to express your creativity than on Long Island’s East End.

Sunday (1)  Montauk

We meet on Sunday morning at our hotel located in Long Island’s East End. We begin by discussing our program and go over PWA's “10 Guiding Principles of Photography”, as well as our ART OF SEEING photographic technique. After a delightful lunch by the pool, we take a photographic drive along Lake Montauk and then make our way out to Montauk Point for some long exposure photos at sunset. In the evening we return for our “Welcome Dinner” at Harvest. (D)

Monday (2)  Montauk

We rise before dawn to witness the sunrise at the Montauk Point Lighthouse, the oldest lighthouse in New York State, and a truly beautiful sight to behold. After the sun rises we venture below the bluffs to capture the surfers and fisherman as they search for the perfect wave or a prize catch. We return to Montauk for breakfast and a brief rest. In the afternoon we explore the quant little beach community of Montauk, its shops, dunes and beachfront homes. Tonight we focus our sunset photography at Nantucket Beach before retiring for relaxed dinner at Lynn's Hula Hut, an outdoor waterside Tiki Bar located at Montauk Marine Basin. (B)

Tuesday (3)  Montauk - East Hampton - Sag Harbor - Shelter Island

On Monday e checkout of our hotel in Montauk and head to Shelter Island, situated in the Peconic bay between the North and South Forks of Long Island.. But not before we explore the wonderful east end villages of East Hampton, Bridgehampton, Sagaponack and Sag Harbor visiting historic villages and cemeteries, polo and equestrian horse farms, fabulous beaches and beautiful wineries such as the Wollfer Estate and Winery. We’ll ferry over to Shelter Island where we will check into our lovely bed and breakfast and enjoy dinner. (B)

Wednesday (4)  Shelter Island - Greenport - Orient - Southold

After a relaxing breakfast overlooking the harbor we set out to explore Shelter Island. It remains one of the best kept secrets on the East End. Still largely unspoiled, it is best known as a beautiful yet low key resort community with lovely winding roads, several historic grand hotels, hidden marinas and coves, charming cottages and breathtaking landscapes. In the afternoon we depart Shelter Island for Long Island’s North Fork and Orient, to photograph the sunset. Afterwards we checkin to our North Fork hotel. In the evening we’ll celebrate our five days together with a “Farewell Dinner” at one of our favorite East End restaurants. (B) (D)

Thursday (5)  Southold - Mattituck - Cutchogue

On day five we visit several North Fork Wineries, farmers and farm stands before bringing an end to our wonderful 5 days together. Before we depart we hold our final group discussion and review our past weeks photos, trade contact information and say our goodbyes. (B)

May all who come as guests... leave as friends®
