Garden Photography Workshop with Rob Cardillo


October 20-22, 2017

Course Description:

Vision, Craft and the Desire to Grow
Truly transcendent images are created when impeccable technique is coupled with a fully engaged body, mind, and soul. This garden photography workshop will provide you with a new set of tools, techniques, and thoughts to help you better find and translate your own vision of natural beauty.
The weekend begins Friday evening with a reception, giving you a chance to meet Rob and mingle with participants. Following the reception, Rob will give a presentation on photographic design principles to jumpstart the workshop. Participants will have access to the garden both Saturday and Sunday before the garden opens to the public. Afternoon sessions will allow plenty of time for editing, discussion, and group critiques.

The workshop is open to all but is best suited for individuals who can operate their camera on their own. A laptop to download and edit your work is strongly recommended and will allow you to better participate in the group critiques.

Rob Cardillo has been providing exceptional images of plants, gardens and the people that tend them for 20 years. His work appears regularly in Garden Design, Country Gardens and the New York Times. Check out Rob’s work on his website. Lisa Roper, Chanticleer horticulturist and photographer, will assist in all aspects of the workshop lending her knowledge of the garden.
