Bill Durrence and Bill Fortney will be our guides for the post-meeting photography workshop. We'll meet in the hotel lobby at 4:40 am to board the shuttle to Tybee Island. We will catch the beach sunrise at 5:30 am. Then we can make beautiful images of the Historical Tybee Island Light Station (lighthouse), local sand dunes and sea oats on the beach. From there we will head to the pier on the main beach to make images and do some exploring. We will have breakfast near the pier before heading to historical Fort Pulaski at about 9 am. Built in the early 1800s, the fort is part of the National Park System and a joy to explore and photograph. Learn more at Fort Pulaski website.

We will spend a few hours at Fort Pulaski, then on to lunch near the Fort before heading back to the hotel where we will have a much-needed break. Later in the afternoon, around 3:00 pm, we will meet in a conference room to review photos and critique the day’s images during a session led by Bill Durrence and Bill Fortney. The photo review will end the day and you will be free to go to dinner on your own.

The workshop fee is $100 and will include transportation, snacks and water. Breakfast and lunch are on your own. You must be registered for the meeting to sign up for the workshop.
