About Capture the Island: Long Point Wildlife Refuge

Capture the autumnal beauty of Martha’s Vineyard in this three-part photography course with Tim DeWitt. Each class takes place at a different scenic Trustees location on Martha’s Vineyard, allowing participants to learn, practice, and perfect their landscape photography skills. A Trustees guide will direct the hike route, while Tim will support the creative exploration of participants. Students can look forward to personalized direction and critique as they solidify their creative vision in landscape photography.

REQUIREMENTS This workshop is open to all levels of experience and any type of camera, though 35mm is preferable. Instruction and pace will vary based on class dynamics and participant needs. Each class will be approximately 2 to 3 miles of walking over medium to difficult terrain including soft sand, packed dirt, and loose rocks. Please plan to bring: sun protection, sturdy walking shoes, insect/tick protection, and water/snack. Participants may get their feet wet, if the best shot requires stepping into the water.
