For photographers, there may be no better time than autumn to capture the magic of Acadia National Park!

Join acclaimed instructor and outdoor photographer Colleen Miniuk (who is also the author/photographer of the award-winning guidebook, Photographing Acadia National Park: The Essential Guide to When, Where, and How, former three-time Acadia Artist-in-Residence) on this unforgettable educational photography workshop, where you’ll have the chance to capture photographs synonymous with Acadia at the height of fall colors.


In an learning-intensive, supportive, and small group setting, where pushing ourselves to try new things will be encouraged, attendees will learn how to:

As Colleen helps you get in the right places at the best times to catch luminous fall colors, thunderous waves crashing against the rocky shoreline, and inspiring historical locations across Acadia. Put a new spin on favorite Acadian scenes like Eagle Lake, Jordan Pond, and Boulder Beach. Explore the kaliedoscope of color as the season changes in places like the Tarn, Sieur de Monts, and Duck Brook.


As you enjoy classic scenes and lesser-known photogenic locations through your own individual lens, you'll bring home a stunning new nature portfolio of spectacular autumn and coastal scenes based on your unforgettable experience in Acadia!


**NOTE: Due to overcrowding at the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse at sunset (typically 100+ photographers crowded around a 30-foot rock slab to "get the shot") and Cadillac Mountain at sunrise (where the parking lot fills two hours before sunrise), the group will not be visiting these locations during the workshop. If photographing these two locations is important to you, please plan on adding a day before or after the workshop to do so on your own.**


Physical Requirements: Best suited for mobile, sure-footed participants who are capable of hiking up to two-miles roundtrip on uneven, rocky terrain while carrying their gear. Some steeper, stair-step-like climbs are necessary to access places like Boulder Beach, Newport Cove, and Bubble Rock. Participants may encounter slick, wet rocks along the coast and during inclement weather.
