Connecting with Nature through Photography

Join wildlife photographer and naturalist Jacqueline Deely for an inspirational weekend of photography amid a spectacular coastal setting! Explore how we can connect with nature, learn about our environment and make a difference through our experiences and the images we capture.

Field activities visit nearby locations with specific goals in mind. We will take advantage of optimal light in the early morning and evening and when wildlife tends to be most active. Instruction and guidance will help you maximize the photographic opportunities we will be presented with.

Classroom sessions include illustrated presentations and discussions evolve around our own unique moments and encounters in the wild. Sharing our work allows us to delve deeper into the thought process behind our photographs and the stories they tell.

Although not required, Jacqueline recommends staying on-site at Camp Ocean Pines to enhance the overall experience. It will be a wonderful way to stay connected with nature and your fellow participants throughout the entire weekend.

All meals are included except dinner on Saturday night, which will be allow participants to visit and dine in the quaint town of Cambria. The first meal is dinner Friday night and the last meal is lunch on Sunday.
