Doesn't this sound wonderful..

Provincetown and the Outer Cape

Instructor:Joel Meyerowitz
Dates: One-Weekend Workshop
9/11/10 - 9/12/10
Saturday and Sunday
Code: 10MPROV

Course Description

Two ways of seeing are at the heart of all photographic activity: walking the streets anywhere in the world and being out in nature. This travel workshop incorporates both. Participants photograph with Joel Meyerowitz in the streets, waterfronts, and crowds of Provincetown as well as the sand dunes, woodlands, marsh areas, beaches, and ponds of the "Outer Cape." Discussions center around work by the instructor and the participants, particularly photographs taken during the workshop. Participants gain a better understanding of how instinct on the street or the desire to capture the mystery and magnitude of nature play a role in defining artistic identity.

The workshop fee is $1,000 which includes two nights lodging (single or double occupancy), Friday and Saturday night, at the Outer Reach Resort, and all meals through Sunday lunch including a cocktail reception Friday evening. The Outer Reach Resort http://www.outerreachresort.com is a picturesque hotel located on 12 acres of the Cape Cod National Seashore with panoramic views of Provincetown and Cape Cod Bay. If desired, when registering ask for a room with a view for an additional $30/night. Registration for the workshop is through ICP, either online or by phone 212.857.0001. A non-refundable $500 tuition deposit is required upon registration. Full payment is due by August 9, 2010. Students wishing to spend Sunday night at the hotel may contact the Outer Reach Resort directly and make reservations.

The Itinerary. Students should arrive Friday, September 10th by 3 pm at the latest. Joel will begin the workshop with a portfolio review at 4:30 pm followed by a cocktail reception and a group dinner at Adrian's restaurant.

Saturday morning workshop participants will have breakfast at Adrian's, and then head out for a morning workshop with Joel. Participants will be given a brown bag lunch and will spend the afternoon photographing with Joel. They will finish the day with a group dinner. Saturday evening after dinner students should plan on editing the photos taken that day for Sunday's review.

Sunday everyone will enjoy breakfast together and then off to spend the morning shooting with Joel. The afternoon will be spent reviewing work and editing it into a cohesive body of work from the weekend. The workshop will conclude with a slideshow of the students' work. Students should plan on a 4-5 pm departure. Students are free to stay the Sunday night if their schedule allows but, if not, a locked room will be arranged so that after Sunday morning check out, all belongings can be securely stored for the day.

How to get there. Transportation is not included in the workshop but there are some very reasonable options for travel to Provincetown. We highly recommend renting a car as all shooting locations are several miles away from the hotel. For further travel information and recommendations, please contact Ember Rilleau, Joel's Studio Director and the workshop coordinator, at 212-666-6505 or ember@joelmeyerowitz.com.

Students should bring a computer, a thumb drive and a 35mm lens. Joel recommends that students read Looking at Photographs by John Szarkowski.
