Waterfall Wednesday

Crystal Cascade, Pinkham Notch, NH

Majestic Fall, Crystal Cascade, Pinkham Notch, NH

Dropping down thru a deep gorge, Crystal Cascade creates a dramatic waterfall scene in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

I’ve hiked by this waterfall many times, usually in the dark or too tired at the end of a long hike to give it much thought.

A couple of weeks ago I decided it was time to pay it a proper visit. So with workshop client in tow we made the short and easy hike to this spectacular White Mountain waterfall. One of 13 waterfalls we visited and photographed over a two day period.

I’m glad I finally took the time to stop.


NH Waterfall Workshop June 17-19

Cairn At Beaver Brook Falls

Join me for 2+ days of wet and wild waterfall fun as we photograph some of the amazing waterfalls in and around the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire.

Curves Of Time

On this 2+ day workshop we’ll visit some of the most beautiful waterfalls anywhere, some will be well known and popular, with a few secret treasures thrown in for good measure.

Let The Fun Begin!

The workshops start on Friday afternoon with a short meet and greet where we will go over the weekends itinerary with the possibility of getting in a few waterfalls that evening.

Then each morning we will rise bright and early in order to photograph under the best light. With any luck it will be overcast and drizzly, ideal conditions for waterfall photography.

After each mornings shooting we’ll take a mid-day break to get some rest, go over the mornings images, as well as work on some post processing techniques using Adobe Lightroom*, Photoshop*, and the Nik Collection by Google* suit of creative plugins.

*If you don’t have any of these I strongly recommend downloading the free trial of each just prior to the workshop. (I have no affiliation with any of these products, they are however what I use to creatively enhance my images).

Then, after we’ve had a much needed rest, had a bite to eat, gone over some of your images and created a few masterpieces, in the afternoon we head out to do it all over again!

The only downside to the waterfall extravaganza is that there are so many spectacular waterfalls located in the area there is no way we could possibly visit them all.

Workshops are based out the very clean and extremely friendly White Mountain Hostel in Conway, NH. While it is not required to stay at the hostel( I know the hostel experience is not for everyone) I strongly recommend it to get the most out of your workshop experience. A limited number of private rooms are available.

Join me June 17-19, 2016.

Space is limited in order to be able to provide the maximum amount of personalized attention per client.

Your investment in this photographic adventure is $725*. Please use the contact form if you have any questions or to reserve your spot today.

*Meals and lodging are not included. Transportation during the workshop is provided be me.

Forces Of Nature

 Nature has a design known only to her,

Slowly revealing her artistic intent with the passing of ages.

As the river flows, sculpting the landscape,

To the Forces of Nature even the granite succumbs.

And Now, By Popular Demand.

Over the last few years I’ve often been asked if I offer workshops. The answer has always been, “Some day.”

I’m pleased to announce that “Some Day” has finally arrived!

Whether you’re looking for a private one-on-one or a small group experience, I can taylor a workshop to your needs.

Seascapes, both morning and evening, along the rugged New Hampshire seacoast, I do that.

Or is photographing the historic charm of a classic New England seacoast town more to your liking? Let me be your guide as we walk around the Portsmouth, NH area in search of iconic New England architecture.

Waterfalls, waterfalls, waterfalls. The White Mountains of New Hampshire has some of the most picturesque waterfalls to be found anywhere.

From roadside to secluded, my June 19-21 White Mountain Waterfalls workshop and photo tour may be just the thing for you.

And then there’s Autumn.

Fall in New Hampshire is a sight to behold, with its vibrant color and mountain views, you’ll experience the spectacular beauty only autumn in New Hampshire can provide. From October 4th to the 6th I’ll be hosting a small group of photographers and helping them capture some of the beautiful color people come from the world over to witness.

For more information on rates or to reserve either a spot on one of my scheduled workshops or a private one-on-one experience, please visit my Workshop page.

As always, don’t hesitate to Contact me.

Making Better Waterfall Photos

Precipitous Plunge

Everyone loves to photograph waterfalls, by clicking HERE, or on the image above, to learn four of my most used tips for making better waterfall photos.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Descent

A unique take on an old favorite.

One of my favorite New Hampshire waterfalls is Falls of Song at Castle In The Clouds.

It’s a long descent as the water plunges over the precipice. One wrong step…

Precipitous Plunge

For some reason most people see this wonderful waterfall from below, something more like this.


Maybe it’s because it’s not such a long way down if you lose your footing? I’m not sure.
