What we're about

National Photography Workshops is a group that Focuses on Photographing the beauty of our National Parks, State Parks and The Great Lakes.

We specialize on teaching all aspects of photography from the newbie to the Advanced Amateur.

You don't need the most expensive equipment, we will show you how to capture great images using your Cellphone, Mirrorless or DSLR camera.

NPW focuses on what creates a great photograph, how to see with a creative eye and how your camera can best capture those special moments.

Thank you,

Tom, Jim, Jamie, Rick, and Roy

Needs a location

$225.00

Join us on a 2-day photography workshop visiting 19 covered bridges around Ashtabula County in N.E. Ohio
As you pass through these historic covered bridges, the past and present collide. Ashtabula County, in Ohio’s northeast corner, is considered the covered bridge capital of the state and is home to 19 of these unique structures.
Some look upon these engineering feats and appreciate the craftsmanship and ingenuity of the builders. Others are in awe of the simple beauty of the historic structure as part of the landscape: magical and colorful crossings set against the area’s rolling hills and vineyards. Covered bridges offer a one-of-a-kind look at a bygone era.
