Hudson Spring Workshop
Hudson Valley 6 hour Photo Workshop–$120

Six Hour Workshop

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. This past winter the photo ops made the cold worth getting out with your cameras. You can read the testimonials from a number of  past attendees. So now that Spring is here, Digital Photo Academy has launched the 6 hour Saturday workshops and the 6 hour Sunday photo workshops in the lower Hudson Valley, beginning on Saturday, April 16th and Sunday, April 17th, Saturday, May 21st, Sunday, May 22nd and finally, Saturday, June 18th and Sunday, June 19th. To be clear, there will be 6 separate Saturday or Sunday groups of a maximum of 10 attendees who can participate in one of the Saturdays or Sundays, from Saturday, April 16th through Sunday, June 19th. As classes fill, more dates will be made available.

Spring time brings blossoms and an array of spectacular flora and fauna plus at DPA headquarters there are colorful flowers on the 1.3 acre property as well as still life images inside bathed in natural light streaming in from the deep set windows of the 180 year old stone structure that once served as a gun powder mill headquarters owned by the Dupont Family.


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. Photo Instructor, Greg Miller has been making photographs year round throughout the Hudson Valley for 20 years.
