Develop your nature photography and environmental storytelling skills in this three-session, field-based workshop led by acclaimed wildlife photographer and MIT Sea Grant’s Visiting Artist Keith Ellenbogen. Experience what it’s like to “go on assignment” as we head to the Eel River Preserve—a restored wetland in Plymouth, Massachusetts—to photograph landscapes, animals, and plants. The workshop will cover technical aspects of nature photography, including the use of DSLR cameras, wide-angle and telephoto lenses, tripods, and composition; introduce the basics of developing a visual narrative focused on conservation; and offer a unique opportunity to experience and learn about the Eel River Preserve restoration project.

Presented in collaboration with the Town of Plymouth’s Department of Marine and Environmental Affairs.

A limited number of scholarships are available for college students interested in participating.
