Our friend Hudson Henry is hosting two upcoming workshops, one a five-day excursion in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina, the other a three-day workshop out on the Oregon Coast. If you’ve been looking for an opportunity to study with Hudson, these are perfect opportunities to deepen your photo skills with an expressive and eloquent teacher, one with a fine eye, a keen understanding of photographic history, and an easygoing manner. Hudson’s workshops are extensively researched and planned to help you get great shots, and the small size of his workshops guarantees plenty of one-on-one time in the field and in the classroom.

Charleston (April)

The Charleston workshop runs for five days, from April 13-17, and includes class time and excursions throughout the historic city center and many of the natural wonders around the area:

There’s good reason for Charleston, South Carolina’s rapid rise as one of the United States’ premier tourism destinations. Food, history, architecture, and beautiful wetlands full of birds and wildlife—this amazing city has something for every photographic style and taste. In this small workshop we’ll split time between exploring this epic location and honing your photographic skills and creative vision through classroom training, shooting, editing and critiques.

We’ll be basing our workshop in the heart of historic Charleston, within easy reach of its culinary and historic treasures. We will also take excursions outside the city, to such locations as Bull Island, the Magnolia Plantation, and Audubon’s Francis Beidler Forest.

This workshop is priced at $1,975, and is limited to 10 students. (It is filling up fast, so check in with Hudson soon if you’re interested.)

Oregon Coast (May)

The Oregon Coast workshop is a three-day affair, from May 4-6, and is based in Bandon, Oregon, located in the southern coastal region.

Bandon has it all. A small historic coast town with good food and lodging and, most importantly, a dazzling array of interesting sea stacks and rock formations jutting out of the surf right in the heart of the town. It’s a true compositional playground. Two historic lighthouses are within easy range: one right in Bandon at the mouth of the Coquille River and the other just to the south at Cape Blanco. On the north edge of town, the Bandon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge provides ample opportunity to photograph birds and wildlife.

The Bandon workshop is $945, and is also limited to 10 students.
