Evocative Travel Photography on Whidbey Island with John and Lisa Merrill
October 20, 2022 - October 24, 2022$1,250
5-day workshop based at the Pacific Northwest Arts School in the quaint maritime town of Coupeville, Washington. In this fun hands-on workshop for photographers of all levels, John and Lisa will help you nurture your creativity and develop the skills and mindset to tell compelling visual stories of the places you explore and the people you meet. Whidbey is a fascinating and beautiful island on which to learn, connect, and create, and improve your mastery of the art of travel photography.
At beaches, forests, gardens, small towns, a marina, a fort, a pottery workshop, a glassblowing studio, and the world’s best junkyard, the Merrills offer guidance and encouragement. They’ll help you become fluent with your camera’s features and settings and break through barriers (both technical and psychological). Hands-on photo coaching can be transformative as you learn to notice the nuances of light and compose for impact — and intentionally make, versus take, photos. You’ll be encouraged to experiment and discover new ways of seeing and photographing, and continually develop your creative vision. For those who want to continue learning while exploring the Pacific NW, the Merrills also offer a 3-day workshop near Seattle after our time on Whidbey Island.
