Meardon to lead photography excursion to Maine this fall

By Staff | Sep 3, 2009

Professional photographer and longtime island resident David Meardon is offering a photo workshop during peak foliage season on the shores of Rangeley Lake in the western mountains of Maine this Oct. 1-7.

Participants will stay at historic lakefront log cabins, just steps from pristine Rangeley Lake.

Meardon will be joined by photo educator James Corwin Johnson, a Florida-based workshop leader who for 12 years was head of photo services at Yosemite National Park. Students will join James and David in Rangeley and receive advice in the field on camera techniques, composition, and lighting. Group and individualized tutorials aimed at optimizing images through Photoshop and other programs will also be offered fireside back at the cabins or a nearby lodge.

Settled over 150 years ago, the town of Rangeley is steeped in history and offers panoramic lake and mountain views, moose and loon sightings, waterfalls, and plenty of old New England charm. Covered bridges dot the landscape, and winding country roads lead the traveler with camera to a myriad of photographic possibilities. All this is set in a crisp fall landscape bursting with reds, yellows, and oranges, as maple, birch, and poplar create a splendid scene set against evergreens, lakes, and rivers.
