Founded and settled by English colonists in 1670, Charleston grew from a colonial seaport to a wealthy city by the mid-eighteenth century. Through the mid-nineteenth century, Charleston’s economy prospered due to its busy seaport and the cultivation of rice, cotton, and indigo.
Charleston is one of the most popular Southern destinations in the country. The districts of the city contain a wide variety of interesting locations and historical landmarks. While in Charleston you can expect to find a rich combination of hospitality and charm resonant of the "Old South." Whether it is the historic houses, churches, or attractions of the Downtown and Historic Districts, the imagery is guaranteed to be amazing. The allure of this city is unmistakable and the photography will be undeniably remarkable.

Major car rental companies are available at or near the Charleston Airport. Participants will need to arrange their own transportation to, from, and during the workshop. We strongly recommend that participants share the cost of rental vehicles. We suggest this because some shooting locations on the workshop have very limited space for vehicles and parking can be a bit of a hassle in Charleston.
FOR THIS WORKSHOP:
Weather - This workshop will take you through many shooting environments, so be prepared for whatever the weather may bring. Be sure to have rain gear for you and your camera.
Conditions - One or two shoots will have us shooting in sand. Sand can be very damaging to a camera and lenses. Be sure to bring a plastic bag or something similar so you can set your bag down and it not be in the sand. Also, keep in mind that this workshop is in a more populated area than a lot of workshops. Plan your camera bag carefully and only bring what you will keep with you at all times on this shoot. Also, parts of the area can be buggy, so bring bug spray as well. Wearing long sleeves and pants will help, but bring bug spray as well.
Accessories - We do not require that you purchase any specific equipment for this workshop. With that said, however, there are a couple of filters that we feel are very important to possess and whose effects cannot be replicated in Photoshop. A circular polarizer is one of them. It is very commonly used in landscape photography. We recommend you have a polarizer for each lens you intend to use. You may utilize a solid neutral density filter for the sunrise beach shoot, maybe...although is not required for this workshop. Contact us with any questions about gear and accessories.
