A mentored program of workshops, master classes, field and lab work

Study with a different professional photographer each week!

Spend six weeks in Rockport this summer, attending workshops and working one-on-one with a mentor from our resident faculty.

Summer Intensives are available for photographers of all levels in the following areas:
  • Personal Vision
  • Historic Processes
  • Documentary & Photojournalism
  • Nature, Landscape, & Travel Photography
  • Portraiture
  • Digital Workflow
  • Fine Art Digital Printmaking

The Summer Intensive program offers the chance to design a sequence of workshops and master-level classes in a specified area of interest. Develop your portfolio in our specialized alternative process lab, and digital printing lab while engaging with artists from our global community each week. In addition to the workshops, you will be paired with a mentor from our resident faculty who will assist your creative development.

We will work with you to design an intensive to fit your specific needs—it is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to learn and develop their artistic vision.

Each six–week intensive consists of four workshop weeks, with an additional two weeks included for one-on-one mentoring with a member of the resident faculty at Maine Media.

All skill levels are welcome to apply. The process begins by completing an application, either online or by calling 877-577-7700 (toll free), 207-236-8581 (internationally). Applicants should submit a brief statement of interest and goals for the intensive, a portfolio (websites are fine), and an initial listing of workshops they wish to attend. Upon receipt of all materials, a member of our resident faculty will contact individual applicants and together design an intensive program. The intensive must be a contiguous block of time.
