Photography at Tangier Island, VA
April 27-29, 2018
In the middle of the Chesapeake Bay, Tangier Island, VA, is actually a series of small islands connected by narrow wooden bridges spanning marshes and tidal creeks. It's home to watermen who make their living crabbing, fishing and oystering, as did their ancestors. We'll photograph the community and harbor at dawn plus explore the beaches, tidal creeks and wetlands in search of wildlife, including the ospreys that nest locally. From a chartered boat, we'll capture unique images of the offshore crab shanties and watermen as they work. In the past, this workshop has filled quickly, so you may want to register early. See www.ospreyphoto.com for more details and registration.
