Where the Wild Things Are….and the Amish!
5-Day Photo Workshop Eastern Ohio
June 5-10, 2018
Limited to 12 Participants
Join us on this variety-packed photo adventure! You’ll experience an array of photo subjects including wild animals from around the world, historic barns, an Amish farm, Amish auctions, and waterfalls. There’s something for everyone. All levels and types of photographers – including traditional DSLR, mirror-less, and iPhone – are invited to join us for this 5 day workshop. We’ll arrive in Zanesville, Ohio, on the evening of June 5, where we’ll gather for a meet-and-greet over dinner. The workshop will begin early Wednesday morning and will conclude after a morning shoot and breakfast on Sunday, June 10.
The Wilds – Jack Hanna’s 10,000 acre conservation center, The Wilds, is the largest protected animal sanctuary in North America. In open air vehicles, our guides will drive us into natural open-range habitats of rhinos, giraffes, cheetahs, zebras and more to view and photograph…many up close and personal.
Barns and Old Buildings in Coal Country – As we drive through scenic hilly southeastern Ohio’s former coal country, we will stop to photograph pre-selected locations and landscapes and are likely to find a surprise or two along our route!
Yoder Family Farm – Is a former Amish homestead with homes, out buildings, and a large barn. We’ll have the freedom to roam and photograph the inside and outside of these structures that depict the simple, yet meaningful life of the Amish family that once lived here. If you choose the optional guided tour, you’ll learn facts of the Amish lifestyle while photographing inside the two homes. The inside of the barn and barnyard are especially photogenic and home to a variety of farm animals, ducks, and rabbits. At the end of the tour, your nose will lead you to the kitchen where there are young Amish women baking breads and cookies and making jams and jellies. These items and more are for sale!
Hocking Hills – Comprised of 9 state parks that include, caves, cliffs, gorges, and waterfalls created by melting glaciers 300 million years ago. We’ll hike into the gorge, but bring your tripod if you want to shoot waterfalls!
Amish Auctions – Depending upon the day, there are livestock, buggy, produce, and horse auctions. You’ll see lots of buggies and Amish men with their straw hats and traditional dress!
