Garden Photography Workshop

August 14 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Take your Garden Photography from good to great by capturing The Gardens at Elm Bank at its most beautiful. During this workshop you will learn to sharpen your awareness of light on the landscape. If you are an Intermediate to Advanced photographer, looking to fine tune your skills and expand your knowledge of Photography then this course is for you.

This course is ideal for the Photographer with some knowledge of manual camera settings that want to take their abilities to the next level. Join Steve McGrath as he reveals his tips and techniques for taking quality close up as well as Landscape Photography in the gardens. This course is informative for both Digital and SLS (film) photographer. Bring a camera with macro capabilities, a sturdy tripod (if you have one) and a large memory card.

We will discuss how to use wide-angle, normal and telephoto lenses most effectively in the garden to strengthen your composition for maximum impact. You will also learn to use creative white balance and ISO for expanding you images. We will also view our images after our day in the gardens.


Steve McGrath is a professional freelance photographer and photography teacher who has been creating images for 20 years. Steve first began by shooting sports photography for local high schools, then weddings, and stock agencies. Then his love of the outdoors led him to focusing more on his true passion, “nature photography”. Steve was an active member of the Gateway Camera Club for many years, and has won many ribbons and awards at fairs and competitions through the group and on his own. Several of his images have been published in school textbooks. His favorite places to shoot are Acadia National Park in Maine, the Green Mountains of Vermont, and the Cape Cod National Seashore.
