Join us as we photograph St. John’s which is the oldest city in North America. During this workshop we will visit Jelly Bean Row houses where you can capture all the brilliant colours of downtown St. John’s. Each street in historic St. John’s has unique character and provides great photographic opportunities. A local professional photographer will also show you behind the scenes photo locations. You will be guided to the most scenic areas while listening to a little history lesson on Jelly Bean Row.
During our trip we will also visit the South Side Hills where you can capture pictures of the Battery which is a favorite for tourist. From here we can explore Fort Amherst and get some great pictures of the old lighthouse that greets passengers as they enter St. John’s harbour.
No trip would be completed without photographing the most easterly location in North America. At Cape Spear we can photograph the oldest surviving lighthouse in Newfoundland and the location is designated a National Historic Site of Canada. The original lighthouse building and the light keeps residence has been restored to the period of 1839. If you are an early riser we can be there to catch the sunrise which will be something that will stay with you forever.
Fishing villages is something that is a great photo opportunity during your time in Newfoundland. We will visit Quidi Vidi where you will be able to photograph fishing boats, old fishing stages, and become immersed in the Newfoundland culture. If time permits, we may also visit the busy fishing harbour of Petty Harbour where small fishing boats are going out to catch fish.
To end a great day of photography, we will visit Signal Hill at sunset where we can capture light trails, Cabot Tower and a panorama of St. John’s harbour. Our local professional photographer will be there to help with any photography questions and provide local location tips.
The next two days of photography will take you to the Bonavista Peninsula driving from St. John's, Newfoundland. During these two days we will travel to various inlets, coves and harbour's to locate icebergs. We will also visit the picturesque community of Elliston where we will visit the Puffin Colony. Here we will offer tips on how to get up close to get those award winning pictures.
During this adventure we will be traveling the north east cost of Newfoundland locating icebergs to capture some awesome images. On our journey to Bonavista we may take a detour to see icebergs if there are any nearby. The scenic North East coast of Newfoundland will provide great opportunities to take stunning pictures of the dramatic cliffs and seascapes.
We will also stop in Trinity on the way to Bonavista where we will have an opportunity to photograph an old fishing community. Trinity has abundant room for the ships of the day and shores well suited for outbuildings, wharves and fish-flakes, which made it ideal for the early migratory fishery. While in Trinity you will be able to photograph the old architecture such as fishing stages and colorful houses.
With the exception of amazing Newfoundland scenery, icebergs, whales, and puffins are visitors to the island and while these tours are offered during peak season, we cannot guarantee to see all three. During our two days in Bonavista we will travel and do everything possible to find these visitors. Again all workshops are custom to the clients needs.
A Zodiac boat tour is an option as well if you would like to get closer to the icebergs and whales. A boat trip on the North Atlantic is always different with so many things to offer such as whales, icebergs, dramatic scenery and other wildlife. The best way to capture award winning iceberg and wildlife images is from a zodiac adventure. (Cost not included in tour price). Accommodations are not included but we will help you find the best place to stay at a great price.
