There are a number of Digital Photo Academy instructors in the photo community who are renowned landscape photographers. They have been chasing the light of the Hudson Valley for quite some time and to show for it, they have thousands of spectacular images, each featured with the glorious atmospheric conditions that brought international fame to the artists of the Hudson River School of Painting in the late 1800’s. That light is still here but it can be tricky. The weather report can project sunlight at a certain time at a certain point and when you set your camera up, the light is just not there. And a beautiful river scene goes dull if the light does not cooperate, so to deal with the unexpected, we have researched and photographed over 50 Hudson Valley locales that offer golden light. If one spot is not cooperating, just zip down the road a bit and work in another.


Call Digital Photo Academy at 1 877 372 2231. Lots of people seem to hang up if our welcome recording comes on instead of a live voice, but we promise to return your message within a day or two if you leave one with your name and number.  It would be even better if you included your email address as well as the date and city of the class you are considering.  If leaving a voice mail message is not your thing, please email us at
