Love your camera again
Your advanced photo experience begins when we meet in St Johns. We will get aquainted during an evening of socializing and shooting while enjoying a traditional lobster boil on the shores of the North Atlantic ocean. The following days will be an intense camera experience as we tour Canada’s historic east coast. We will view from boat; whales and bird habitat and North America’s easternmost coastline. Then we will be off to central Newfoundland and the fishing villages of Dildo, Old Perlican, Grates Cove, Bay de Verde, Ferryland and many more. There will be a kitchen party or two, screeching in, kissing the cod and many laughs. Bring extra batteries!!
