Greg Miller, (http://digitalphotoacademy.com/portfolio/greg-miller/), renowned landscape photographer and respected photo instructor, says, “It is not about the subject, it is about the light.” To that end Miller has been chasing the light of the Hudson Valley for quite some time and to show for it, he has thousands of spectacular images, each featured with the glorious atmospheric conditions that brought international fame to the artists of the Hudson River School of Painting in the late 1800’s. That light is still here but it can be tricky. The weather report can project sunlight at a certain time at a certain point and when you set your camera up, the light is just not there. And a beautiful river scene goes dull if the light does not cooperate, so to deal with the unexpected, Miller has researched and photographed over 50 Hudson Valley locales that offer golden light. If one spot is not cooperating, just zip down the road a bit and work in another. A body of knowledge of where and when the light will appear has allowed Greg to put out 3 award winning landscape photography coffee table books.

For his students, this means that when the light is not playing nice at Boscobel, skip down the road a mile to Constitution Marsh (Audubon Society). While nobody can unequivocally guarantee where the light will show itself, Miller knows its best hiding places and will likely find it.  The experience even includes a table top photo lesson and a delicious meal at The Historic North Plank Road Tavern, once managed by the Legs Diamond regime, now run by Tom Costa who makes food that tastes fantastic and will look equally tempting in the images you make. (The shoot will be set up at the same time you order your own meal and when you are done with the shoot, your own version of what you just photographed will be prepared by the chef for your consumption.)
