Autumn in the Shenandoah Photo Workshop

Join Instructor Emily Carter Mitchell and Marie Joabar in the Shenandoah for an amazing fall themed workshop. Autumn in the park is the ultimate destination for glorious fall color that landscape photographers dream of.

We’ll take advantage of all the photographic opportunities that Shenandoah offers from sweeping meadows, captivating waterfalls, broad mountain vistas and intimate fall captures. Working at the edge of daylight, we’ll capture gorgeous sunsets and mountain ridges against the pinks, purples and blues of the evening sky.

Everyone will come away from this workshop with a camera full of beautiful fall images and a few new techniques under their belt!

-  The Workshop begins on Thursday, October 20 at 4pm and runs until Saturday, October 22 at 10am. There will be an introduction and orientation session on a weeknight evening prior to the workshop via Zoom. 


- This workshop is specifically designed to maximize our time in the field photographing, learning in a hands-on, real world fashion.
- The group size is purposely being kept small at just 10-12 students with 2 instructors so that everyone will be able to get questions answered and have time for one on one instruction.  
- We will be shooting on Thursday evening. Each day we’ll get out very early to make the most of the morning light and we’ll work in a sunset too.
- There will be a little down time in the afternoon when you can relax or take a nap.


- Transportation to and from the workshop is not included in the workshop fee and participants are responsible to get there on their own. If driving, it’s about a 2 hour drive from the DC area.
- We will carpool in the Park when needed.


In order to participate in this workshop, you should be in moderately fit condition and be able to hike on rocky terrain and scramble over small boulders with your gear to get to the best vantage points for photographing. If you have questions or concerns about this please contact Marie Joabar and she can discuss with you.
