"I'm not even sure where to begin to express my gratitude for what I experienced last week. I guess I expected a class more on the workings/techniques of photography. What I received was a life changing view of our earth and how we as photographers can share that view with others. Your knowledge and love for these mountains, trees, plants and flowers is second to none. I always thought of myself as a nature lover but you probably forgot more then I'll never know.

You are truly blessed with the gift of teaching and reaching not only the minds of your students but most importantly their "hearts", and for that I thank you from the bottom of mine."

2017 One-Day Workshop Schedule

As the year progresses it is possible that I will add one or more one-day workshop events to the schedule. Be sure to check this page regularly to discover whether new one-day workshops have been posted. Also check the "Instruction & Art" tab and the "Coaching" section to set up your own individual or tandem one-day experience. Remember, too, that there are three (3) weekend workshops and three (3) extended weekend workshops on the schedule, and all of these will be wonderful adventures. Please check both of these pages as the year goes on, and plan to join me somewhere for the fun, the fellowship, and the learning.

One-Day Workshops

Don IsabelleOne-day workshops are not only a lot of just plain fun; they are useful and lead to productive results on a variety of levels.

First, they get you out of the house and into a setting where you can directly experience nature’s beauty and the soul-enhancing impact that such an experience can have.

PatIn addition, they give you the opportunity to learn a broad range of new photographic skills in the field accompanied by a knowledgeable instructor whose primary objective is to assist you in the capture process from start to finish. After all, the best images begin with the best capture techniques.

Moreover, they give you a wonderful opportunity to add to your portfolio of good images through the only tested and proven method of becoming a better photographer: practice, practice, practice.

EarthSong One-Day Workshops are designed to accomplish all of these goals in some of western North Carolina’s most beautiful places – the Great Smoky Mountains, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Pisgah National Forest, and Nantahala National Forest.

Join us on a short adventure that’s sure to stimulate your mind, excite your senses, and light your creative fire.
