Workshops at Chanticleer

Photographing Gardens of the Brandywine Valley

May 16th - 22nd, 2016
Workshop fee is $675, price includes admission to all gardens and some meals will be provided

Chanticleer has partnered with the Mt Cuba Center to host a photography workshop showcasing four magnificent mid-Atlantic gardens at the height of spring bloom: Chanticleer, Mt. Cuba Center; Winterthur Museum, Garden and Library; and Longwood Gardens. Early access to all four sites allows students to explore and capture the special qualities of morning light with master photographer Allen Rokach. Afternoons are dedicated to lectures, review sessions, and individual consultations. Participants at all levels of photographic experience will receive in-depth instruction on the technical and aesthetic aspects of garden photography. This workshop will occur rain or shine, so please dress for the weather and be prepared to walk outdoors.

Allen is an experienced and active photographer and educator whose photography assignments have taken him around the world. His images are included in numerous national publications including Horticulture and Popular Photography. To learn more about Allen, visit his website.
