Provincetown, located at the very tip of Cape Cod, is a photographer’s paradise. From the picturesque wharf area, to the beautiful scenic areas close by, it’s easy to fill your cards and phones with many wonderful images at one of the Cape’s most popular destinations. If street and people photography are your thing, Provincetown has that too.

Rad Drew and I will be repeating her popular Provincetown and Outer Cape workshop in September. For the third year working together, award-winning iPhoneographer and teacher, Rad Drew, will be co-leading. Rad’s creative iPhone work (examples of which you can see on the Gallery’s Tab) has received recognition in numerous international competitions and has been exhibited in galleries around the world. Rad also shoots infrared and traditional camera photography. Rad is also a popular instructor for the Topaz webinars.

We’ll photograph the popular wharf area, capturing beautiful boat reflections, detail shots and much, much more. We’ll also photograph several lighthouses in the area and visit the beautiful sand dunes. A block of rooms has been reserved for our group at a local hotel overlooking the bay. In addition to Provincetown, we’ll also be photographing other areas nearby on the outer Cape, including Truro and Wellfleet.

Our workshop will begin on Monday evening and will conclude Friday morning after our sunrise shoot. On Monday afternoon, we’ll gather for a brief meet and greet before we head out for sunset. The following morning we will be up early as we will want to capture the best light.

Afterwards, we’ll grab breakfast and continue on our journey to explore the little nooks and crannies of Provincetown. We’ll have lunch and then head to our hotel for the creative processing session of our workshop. Tips and techniques will also be demonstrated for optimizing images. After a break, we will then head out to another beautiful location nearby. Dinner will follow at one of the many wonderful dining locations that Provincetown is known for.
Weather permitting, participants will have an opportunity to go out on an optional whale watch during this workshop. In addition to photographing humpback whales (and possibly other species), this trip out to Stellwagen bank (where the whales often feed) also provides a great opportunity to see and photograph two hard-to-reach lighthouses, Long Point Lighthouse and Wood End Lighthouse. This trip is highly recommended for those who are interested and September can be a great month to see lots of whale activity.
The following mornings we will again be up early for our sunrise shoots with breakfast afterwards followed by lunch and our processing sessions where you will have an opportunity to work on your own images. Rad and Betty will work with you to get the most out of your photography and answer any questions that you might have.

If you’ve caught the iPhone photography bug, or simply want to learn how to get the most out of the camera that’s always with you, Rad will show you not only how to capture great images, but also how to process them using a host of apps for creative results. In the field and in the classroom, Rad will be demonstrating and coaching you on how to:
- select the right camera app for the situation
- process your images to improve clarity, drama and impact
- process traditional camera images on your iPhone or iPad
- create great HDR images, simply and easily
- use the resident panorama app to capture impressive panos
- create painterly-looking or vintage-looking images
Rad will provide a list of recommended apps and accessories to all attendees prior to the workshop. Provincetown will be a great place for use of iPhones, and we will be shooting with both our iPhones and our regular cameras.
This workshop is full but please contact me if you would like to be placed on our wait list.
