Winter on Roan Mountain

Mountains to Sea Workshops offers photography workshops in North & South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.  These workshops are designed for the outdoor landscape and nature photographer, from intermediate to advanced photographers.  If you are just starting out, we highly recommend a half or whole day private instruction with one of our instructions, to cover all of the basics of camera function, settings and image creation.

Working in small groups, our goal will be to increase your technical knowledge while expanding vision and creativity at visually inspiring locations. Learn to capture stunning images using techniques the professionals use, with hands on instruction in the field.   Your Workshop will also include a day behind the computer learning the processing secrets that will give your images the pop you desire!  Truly a fun filled weekend adventure you will not want to miss!

If you don’t see a workshop that fits your particular need, you can have a private workshop designed especially for you.  Whether it’s  equipment function, location photography or behind the computer, we’re here to help you.  Our Workshops are fun, adventurous and visually stimulating.  We welcome you at any skill level and will customize a Workshop especially for you!

Feel free to contact us with any questions.
