Central Maine is a spectacular sight with beautiful scenery that will inspire every photographer. Woodlands, streams, waterfalls, the night sky, and local culture all make for fantastic photo opportunities as we explore, learn, and create in and around the rural town of Solon, Maine.

Solon, Maine will host this Adventure: a four-day workshop featuring hands-on instruction during daily field trips, in-depth classroom discussion, and professional guidance from Hunt’s Photo’s Director of Photo Adventures Don Toothaker in a rustic, relaxed atmosphere.
Solon is a small town at the edge of some of Maine’s premier wilderness areas.
