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 2 hour sightseeing photo walks, to 2 hour classes and 3 day intensive 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!

Just wanted to send you and Daniel a note to say thanks for the workshop this past Saturday. It was very helpful for me and was great hands-on instruction! I know Daniel had a very full Friday but he stuck with us and you both gave a great workshop. I hope to be able to attend another one in the future but wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it and appreciate the work you both do.

Thanks again and have a great summer!

Thanks again for a great workshop and the opportunity to get out and see the Frisco pier before gone. Even though it was freezing it was so awesome to be out there for the first time and right before it is gone. The weather was bad but the company and instruction was great.
