Lighthouse Newfoundland Photography Workshop

Best Newfoundland Photography Workshop

An exceptionally photogenic part of the world, Newfoundland is a photographer’s paradise. This natural wonderland has everything a photographer could ask for, nature, wildlife, landscapes, and even icebergs, well maybe!

I’ve photographed birds all around the world, and I’ve never found a better place than Newfoundland for puffins and gannets. Those birds must not have a better location either, as they roost here by the thousands.

We will not only enjoy the seashores of Newfoundland but the seas well. We have a private charter boat to take out to the ocean looking for Orca Humpbacks, Dolphins, and more. I would be happy doing that every day! SO much fun.

Join this workshop if you want to photograph a lot of unique subjects on the same trip. Join this workshop if you’d like to learn how to be a better nature photographer. You could also join if you just want to hang out with like-minded photographers at a fabulous location!

Arrive in St. John’s, Newfoundland before 4:00 pm in order to make our group dinner. We’ll meet at 6:00 pm for a group dinner to get to know each other while we discuss the upcoming workshop

This morning we’ll depart for our first photoshoots at Ferryland Lighthouse, Berry Head, Pouch Cove, and Biscayne Cove, We’ll spend the afternoon north of St. John’s visiting numerous fishing villages and sea stacks. The day will end with a sunset photoshoot at one of our favorite locations.

After a morning image review we will head to Cape St. Mary’s, the most accessible seabird rookery in North America. Cape St. Mary’s is also the southernmost breeding area for thick-billed murres in the world, and for common murres in the northwest Atlantic Ocean. Bird Rock is the southernmost nesting site for northern gannets in North America. The location will have us sitting at the elevation of the Gannets, offering the perfect vantage point to watch them fly in and out of the colony

After breakfast, we will depart from St. John’s for our hotel in Bonavista Bay, our base for the next three nights. Our drive will include stops to photograph the bays, coves, and tickles along the way, and we’ll be keeping an eye out for icebergs

Today we’ll head out on a private boat tour early in the morning, Our focus will be on icebergs, bald eagles, and whales. Humpback whales are common in this area. You may also see dolphins, porpoises, eagles, and a variety of pelagic sea birds.

In the afternoon we will head to Elliston to photograph Atlantic puffins—the only puffin species in the North Atlantic Ocean. Elliston is home to thousands of puffins that are constantly on the move at this time of year.

We’ll start the day with an image review and critique session, and then head out to “Iceberg Alley,” a corridor of the ocean that runs down from Greenland. We’ll be focusing our photographic efforts on Dungeons Provincial Park, Spillar’s Cove, Bonavista Lighthouse and a few other surprises

This morning we’ll start our trip back to St. John’s, stopping for lunch and photography along the way. Then, after the last dinner together, we’ll head out for a sunset shoot at Cape Spear Lighthouse. Perched on a craggy headland, this oldest surviving lighthouse in Newfoundland and Labrador offers a glimpse into the lives of 19th-century lighthouse keepers and their families.

Flights home can be scheduled at any time this day.

In St John’s we are staying in a nice hotel near the airport.

In Bonavista we are in a charming and eclectic family owned hotel. It’s really cool!

Check back later, it’s way too soon to tell you what to expect.

I’ve been very passively advising my clients to purchase travel insurance for a while, but lately it seems like there have been multiple people having travel issues. Some have lost their deposits and sometimes even the cost of the entire trip!

Based on my client’s experience, I cannot stress more strongly how crucial it is to purchase travel insurance. Like I said before, and here it comes again, there is never a way to predict what is going to happen when you are booking trips months and years into the future.

You can read more about my thoughts about the importance of travel insurance in this blog post.
