Limited to six attendees per whale workshop and adventure.
Being onboard a boat and experiencing close-up encounters with whales is very special. These majestic mammals often venture quite close to the boat. It can, however, be quite difficult to capture behaviors with your camera. This exciting new workshop is designed so that you will acquire all the skills necessary to capture great shots of whales. Tom will not only present some group sessions, he will also help each participant individually as needed, to make sure their cameras are set up correctly and that they are ‘up-to-speed’ with their photographic techniques. Once everyone is set up, while onboard Tom will problem solve & coach the participants, to make sure they are ready for when the whales start to appear and getting well-composed images with proper exposure and focus using techniques keyed upon in the morning workshop.
The workshop starts at Cape Cod Art Center in West Barnstable and then will continue onboard the Hyannis Whale Watcher (Barnstable) which will transport you to Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary for an unforgettable encounter with the whales. Any whale sightings in the vicinity are closely monitored and the Captain will get as close as is legally allowed to the whales. Often, the whales will swim right up to, and under, the vessel itself. The photographic workshop is geared towards various skill levels and Tom is very patient with participants. Questions are very welcome! Following the workshop, Tom has an edit and print lab/workshop/ class on Thursday afternoons at The Art Center. a wonderful opportunity to play with your whale images and make some gallery worthy prints.
The morning pre-shoot seminar introducing photographic techniques and tips for successful shipboard photography in diverse maritime conditions such as shooting while in motion, low and bright light, back-lighting, understanding how to overcome diverse weather conditions and turn it into an advantage. Tom will also take the time to help make sure all your settings are adjusted correctly for the afternoon shoot.

Description:
The most productive experience with my formal photographic studies was not graduate level color theory or advanced lighting with master fashion photographers. It was a little summer class in The West Village of New York City in the early 1980’s for high school kids… Our instructor taught us the basics then turned us loose on the city. We would meet once a week and she would circle the best images on our contact sheets, give us a little art direction towards improvement, send us into the darkroom to make a few prints, then send us back out into the streets to make better images based on our own developing strengths & styles.
So these are the core elements of the workshop… If you understand digital photo basics, have a laptop or tablet for editing in Lightroom, and have the desire to become a better photographer/photo editor this is a great workshop for creative growth and development. There is no better subject matter than a summer day or night on Cape Cod.
This course is designed to be both a one-day editing/printing module or as an ongoing workshop for edit skills, portfolio building, printing and creative development. $60.00 per class or 4 classes for 200.00 this includes 3: 8x 10 prints per class and an opportunity to print additional images up to 24 inches for a nominal lab fee. Limited to 12 attendees per class. This is a perfect accompaniment to any photographic or digital media workshop taken at the Art Center or independently.
What to bring: A laptop or tablet with Adobe Lightroom images will be edited using Lightroom and electronically transferred to a large format printer for printing.
Prerequisites: A basic working knowledge of laptop or tablet and basic camera and Lightroom skills.  A one-on-one mentorship is available with Tom if assistance is needed to make it to the basic level.
