We will be staying at the Kitchen's Salt House OBX in Southern Shores, NC. This is a private home with plenty of room for everyone. There are 5 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms with space to sleep 12 adults. The house is situated on a canal with amenities including a full kitchen, a fire pit, bocce ball, cornhole, and wifi in a gorgeous secluded environment.



We will be photographing all over the region, concentrating our efforts on mastering the basics and moving beyond those basics to really create our own unique visions. We will talk about translating what we see and feel into our photography. We may encounter some wildlife photography opportunities as well. We will aim for a sunset, sunrise, or both and plan to attempt to shoot the nighttime as well. This will be a weekend full of photography and fun! We will be conducting field instruction sessions on a variety of topics while out shooting and spend some time in the cottage doing classroom instruction as we prepare for the next location. 


We want this to be an enjoyable and relaxing experience filled with photography talk and learning, an open environment to ask whatever questions you have and to get some real world tips and techniques that you can apply whether you are shooting the latest DSLR or an iPhone or Android. 


What To Bring:

  • camera gear including a tripod, your manual, and a range of lenses

We recommend bringing layers of clothing and rain gear. Though the weather will probably be warm, it can still be quite unpredictable. Please dress accordingly.
