All Skill Levels Welcome

Class Size: Maximum 8 attendees
This Walk is part of our Emerging Series, as we cautiously begin to emerge from the COVID-19 lockdown. For this series of walks, we have chosen areas that are more spread out and with less foot traffic. We will also be limiting our group size to a maximum of 8 attendees with one instructor. After the course description (but before registration) will be guidelines for these walks. Please make sure to read them prior to registering.
Join Hunt’s Photo Education on a late afternoon/sunset walk of Rockport and its harbor, Bearskin Neck, and other points of interest. On this walk, we will discuss exposure, subject development, image composition, Black & White Photography and more. Photographers of all skill levels are encouraged to attend.
Rockport is a premiere destination for photographers. The town is an eclectic mix of unique storefronts, a beautiful harbor, boats, and a rich fishing tradition that offers a wide variety of photographic subjects.
This walk is an excellent opportunity both for those just starting out as well as the well-seasoned photographer. For those starting out, there are many excellent opportunities to work on composition and subject development, and also see how the light changes and affects your photographs throughout the evening. For the well-seasoned photographer, Rockport has just so much of interest to offer that you can work on creating more complex compositions and other advanced themes in your work. This is truly one of the best places at any level to photograph.
Emerging Series- A Guideline for Photo Walks during the era of COVID-19
As the COVID lockdown ends and social restrictions begin to ease, we have decided to start offering our popular Hunt’s Photo Walks again.
Hunt’s Photo Education remains dedicated to the health and safety of every single attendee, student, and customer, first and foremost. We also are committed to the best possible learning experience. We have put forth rules and guidelines for Photo Walks that occur during the era of COVID.
•We will have no more than 6-8 attendees per Photo Walk with a single instructor
•We ask that all attendees wear a mask. (Please make sure the mask covers your mouth and nose.)
