Hudson November Winter Workshop

Hudson Valley 4.5 hour Photo Workshop–$120


Whether a 20 minute car ride near the Beacon/Newburgh community or 90 minutes along the scenic Hudson on the Metro North train from Grand Central, NYC, the photo workshops in Beacon, Newburgh and surrounding areas are an unforgettable photo op no matter what the season, rain, snow, fall, spring and summer. So Digital Photo Academy has launched the 4.5 hour Saturday workshop in the lower Hudson Valley.  To be clear, there will be 6 separate Saturday groups of a maximum of 10 attendees who can participate in one of the Saturdays.  As classes fill, more dates will be made available.

If you take the Metro North from Grand Central Station, $30 round trip, DPA staff will collect you at the Beacon station and drive you around for the 6 hours of the event. The day will start with a lesson in Shutter Speed Control at the Beacon Waterfall on East Main Street, capturing local historic charm along the way.

After lunch at the Digital Photo Academy headquarters, our photo instructors will take you to one of the hidden gems of the community, so you can come away with a spectacular land or water scape scenes. In snow or no snow the trip is well worth it when considering the beauty of the setting.


After lunch you will be driven to an access point where noted artists from the Hudson River School of Painters stood some 130 years ago. Our photo instructors have been making photographs year round throughout the Hudson Valley for years.

Snow or not, there are close up details and panoramic vistas to enjoy and capture with your camera.
