Explore the world of botanical photography in the studio and various gardens in the lovely Maine midcoast. We will experiment with a range of digital photography tools and techniques including macro photography, still life photography, simple lighting options, black-and-white conversions and digital applications with filters. 

Come prepared to play in the studio, to photograph several beautiful coastal Maine gardens and to try your hand at still life photography with a focus on flowers.

This course is about visual exploration, developing your own photographic style and having fun with experimentation.


Lee Anne White

Lee Anne White is captivated by the beauty, essence and changing complexion of natural, designed and cultural landscapes. She enjoys them most in the quiet moments—in the soft light of sunrise and sunset, on winter days when trees bare their bones, and on foggy mornings when less is visible and the world doesn’t seem quite so complicated. She also loves gardens—simply, yet boldly designed. And when it comes to plants, she searches for the essence of their spirit—whether a gentle gesture or defining characteristic. 

A fine art and editorial photographer, her images have been exhibited in both solo and group shows, including a permanent exhibition of her work at Brenau University. She has served as a sole or major contributing photographer for more than 20 books, authored nine books and served as the editor-in-chief of Fine Gardening magazine. Her work has been published in Garden Design, Landscape Architecture, Better Homes and Gardens, Organic Gardening, Kitchen Garden, Country Living, Country Gardens, Horticulture, Sunset and other magazines. She earned a master's degree in Creative Studies at SUNY/Buffalo State and an undergraduate degree in Journalism, Broadcasting and Commercial Art at Brenau University.
