NH and Maine Fall Foliage Photo Tour

Rangeley

$1,995.00

Peak Fall Foliage (Maine and New Hampshire) Photo Tours and Workshops Join us on an autumn photo adventure to photograph beautiful Maine and the White Mountains. Explore the northern forest during peak fall foliage. We will photograph some of New England's most scenic places. We will be visiting several locations including Rangeley Maine, Northern NH, and the White Mountains. We will photograph autumn reflections, waterfalls, rivers, great mountain vistas, covered bridges, and many more subjects. New England foliage peaks at different times so experience and planning is critical. It also peaks at different times for different elevations. It is critical to know the timing of which areas peak first to last. It is amazing the number of tours that go out past peak foliage. You also have to know how to avoid the crowds during peak traffic season. We will put you in the right spot in the right time to help you produce top quality images. This is a landscape photography tour but we will also be on the lookout for different wildlife. This area is one of the best places to see moose in New England. To be honest the moose population is on a rapid decline so it will be a longshot but you never know. Here is an article. As a resident of New England, John has been photographing and exploring this area for decades. He is a professional photographer who know the area inside out. John will take you to some well-known locations and several secret spots. When: October 1-5, 2020 Where: Rangeley Lakes (Maine), White Mountain National Forest (NH) and other locations.
