A Photography Workshop
with Peter Schreyer

October 3rd
8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Saturday
Carpool from Crealdé campus

Registration deadline: Saturday, September 26
Members $95, Non-members $115

Explore hidden architectual and cultural treasures along the back roads of Volusia and Lake counties that provide a contemporary window to the region’s past and rich heritage. Participants cross the St. Johns River on a 19th-century ferry and travel on a dirt road through a beautiful portion of the Ocala National Forest. Photographic opportunities include the natural and man-made landscape, local landmarks and interiors of historical buildings.

Please be prepared to spend a big part of the day outdoors in the beautiful fall weather, wear comfortable shoes and clothing. In addition to your camera equipment and a tripod, you may also want to pack snacks and water. Workshop includes demonstrations, a follow-up critique and lunch at a scenic small-town restaurant. The group will leave from the Crealdé parking lot and should be ready to carpool for the 250-mile photographic adventure.
