Storm King, 500 acres of luxurious landscapes and spectacular views of the Hudson Valley mountains, surreally accented by gigantic colorful neo-expressionistic sculptures. The sculptures will provide scale and enable a lesson on environmental portraits with the subject dwarfed by the earth.Afterwards, we will have a photo session at The LOFTS AT BEACON, a post apocalyptic setting of old factory worker housing that is now luxury artist condos. Within a 3 minute walking from the luxury lofts that sit by a waterfall are stark brick walls from the 1800’s with colorful graffiti and abandoned construction machinery that pose a dramatic photo set to be enhanced by models who will be provided by the DPA staff.
All Hudson Valley shoots begin at Digital Photo Academy at 15 Powder Mill Rd., Newburgh, NY 12550 with a lecture to prepare you for an in-the-field shoot. If there’s any time, we can all cross the street to photograph the park which is featured on the National Historic Register as a tribute to it’s former existence from 1815 to 1901 as a gun powder mill that in it’s peak had an annual production load of 49 tons of gun powder. (Coincidentally, historical records report 49 powder explosions during the life of the mill. Be sure to take a look by the fireplace in the Digital Photo Academy Head Quarters of Mr. Smith’s tombstone who was killed in one of the explosions.)
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 e mail 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 DPAbooking@digitalphotoacademy.com or Richard@digitalphotoacademy.com.
