Our Hatteras Island Photography Workshop Series is in it’s fourth season, and we couldn’t be more excited about it!

We know that no-one  “needs” another excuse to visit Hatteras Island, but just incase you do, here it is!

  • Improve your photography skills
  • Hone in on your creativity
  • Maximize the abilities of your camera
  • And for some of you – just learn how to turn your camera on and use it properly!
  • All while enjoying some rest and relaxation on Hatteras Island’s beautiful beaches.
Our workshop series encompasses everything from 3 hour sightseeing photo walks, to 2 hour classes and 3 day weekend hands-on workshops.

We combine in-classroom instruction at our Buxton Gallery with individualized field work on Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands to create a photography experience that

  • educates
  • entertains
  • empowers

our students to maximize their potential as a photographer.

And don’t worry, there’s time built in for some R&R too!
