When we step into the landscape do we define nature or does nature define us? This workshop is open to all levels of photographers who are interested in working with the landscape, either as a primary source or as a backdrop. We will investigate our intentions while photographing nature and look at what geographic location has to do with our creative decisions. Since we will be photographing in the Hudson Valley, we will also look at the historical, cultural and political significance of the area, as it was first painted by the Hudson River painters. In between location shoots will revisit relevant photographers such as William Jackson, Ansel Adams, as well as contemporary landscape photographers.
