Bill and Linda Lane run Nature’s Image Photography and lead several aging-photographer-friendly nature photography workshops. Their currently scheduled 2015 workshops are in Virginia, West Virginia, and North Carolina. Bill and Linda are seasoned nature photographers and patient teachers.
Their workshop format has always recognized that people want more out of a photo workshop than just photographing 100% of the time. For the last 19 years they have been offering these three to five day “Field Workshops” that are all inclusive. They try to fill them with as much photographic information and hands on experiences as can be managed in an 18 hour day plus plenty of good food, a comfortable atmosphere and time for camaraderie and the sharing of information between participants and ourselves. The combination makes for a better, more relaxed learning atmosphere.
They are also cognizant of the physical limitations of us aging photographers and will work with you to select a workshop that’s right for you. To quote Linda in response to my concerns about the Spring Scenics and the Waterfalls and Fall Foliage workshops, “We are not spring chickens ourselves and I have a bad knee also and one total replaced knee. But I do very well actually. So, I can assure you that you will not have a lot of hiking in either workshop.”
Their 2015 workshops schedule includes:
April 13 – 17 Spring in the Great Smoky Mountains, TN,
April 29 – May 2 Spring Scenics & Wildflowers in Cass, WV
May 30: Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens, Richmond, VA
