Adirondack Mountains offer some of the best foliage viewing anywhere in America especially for the vibrant red colors of the sugar maples. From lower mountain top peaks we can overlook red-filled valleys nestled below the High Peaks, and down below the forests are filled with bright yellow and reds which make for amazing forest compositions. Lakeshores offer reflections of color on calm mornings, with abstract patterns of white birch trunks and red maple trees offering telephoto and panoramic options. Autumn season in the Adirondacks is truly a special time of year, just after most tourists have left the Adirondacks and gone home leaving the woods and waters quiet, and yet still there is an explosion of autumn color both on the trees and covering the forest floor. This is also the best time of year for photographing panoramic vistas with crisp late autumn days with low humidity and long sight distances in the clear air. Newcomb, a central location, provides some excellent nearby forests and forest streams to photograph among. Finally we'll touch upon the southern and/or eastern High Peaks area to photograph these classic areas as well. Photographic locations on this workshop will be between Newcomb, Great Camp Santanoni, North Hudson, Essex Chain of Lakes, Long Lake, and/or other locations. We will do at least one indoor intensive photography editing and critiquing session.

This 3.5 day Adirondack photo workshop will be based out of Newcomb. Please note that rooms may be available at the Santanoni Inn (4 rooms), which is our preferred and recommended place for you to book and stay. Book either through Airbnb, or contact me to book on your behalf, without incurring the Airbnb fee. The base price of the workshop is $400 per person, including tuition, and horse-drawn wagon trip into Great Camp Santanoni. Additional costs to you would be personal vehicle, 3 nights accommodation, and meals. First day meetup details will be communicated to all participants beforehand.

Sign up: When you are ready to sign up, please make a deposit payment of $200, including your details, on this website's generic payment page. Or if you have any additional questions, Johnathan would be happy to speak with you; please use the contact page.
