Hollow Rock Resort Photography Workshop.

***Full call 218-830-0767 for wait list***

Walk out your door and be at one of the most iconic locations on the North Shore, it doesn’t get any easier than this! Hollow Rock offers one of the best icons for landscape photographers and this workshop is based right at this location! In addition there are numerous awesome spots within a few minutes drive–Red Rock Point, Chicago Bay, Paradise Beach, High Falls, Superior Hiking Trail Island, and many more. This workshop is timed to take advantage of  the clear night skies in one of the darkest areas of the North Shore.

This workshop will take you from concept to finished image with tutorials and demonstrations on capturing as well as post processing your images. This five day workshop will include hands on assistance in the field as well as in the classroom. Small workshop size means there is plenty of one on one instruction. Shooting in various conditions of light, and exploring proper digital technique and workflow for low light and night time photography, is designed to help participants realize their photographic visions, from field to finished image.

Don’t miss this exciting and unique workshop.


This workshop is a combined field and classroom workshop. We will spend 75% of the time in the field and 25% of the time in the classroom. Field shoots will provide the subject matter for daily studio sessions in which the instructor will demonstrate post-processing techniques using Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom. Discussions will include issues related to print resolution, color space, using ICC Print Profiles, paper/media selection, image sharpening for print output, and editorial post-processing manipulation.

Each participant will work on their own images and have the opportunity to make several 8×10 test prints and 1, 12×18 finished exhibition quality fine art prints that evoke the photographer’s excitement and vision as first experienced in the field. Participants will also have the opportunity to explore HDR and Photomerge for the creation of panoramic prints.

Throughout the workshop, the instructor will combine field exercises and technical demonstrations with group critiques and one-on-one instruction, resulting in participants’ increased understanding and enjoyment of photography, the creative process, and the natural world.
