Grand Marais & Beyond Nature Photography Workshop: Fall Equinox Session

Course Overview

The Grand Marais and Beyond course is designed for the enthusiastic photographer, amateur or professional, with an emphasis on storytelling with your photography. Led by editorial photographer Layne Kennedy, you will explore and photograph the scenic shores of Lake Superior, create portraits of local folks, photograph history of the region at the Fort at Grand Portage, point your lens at the iconic images that identify Grand Marais, and explore the pine-laden Superior National Forest near the picturesque community of Grand Marais. Participants will be developing new techniques to enhance your personal photographic vision. At the conclusion of the workshop, each photographer will edit and prepare up to 10 images for a Workshop Program before departure from North House. Finally, each participant will enjoy inclusion in a class self-published book of all individual workshop stories assembled by Layne. All levels are welcome.

North House is looking forward to hosting this course on campus in the safest way possible. Students will be asked to wear a mask at all times on campus, and to practice social distancing of 6 feet, as well as adhere to other safety protocols. See the full details of our COVID-19 protocols here.
