Outer Banks Lighthouses Photo Workshop
Outer Banks Lighthouses Photo Workshop 2023
Lerro Photography Presents:
The Outer Banks Lighthouse Photo Workshop
May 16-21, 2023
The waters off the shore of the Outer Banks of North Carolina are known as the “Graveyard of the Atlantic,” and for good reason — more than 1,000 ships have sunk in these waters since recordkeeping began in 1526. Because of this, a cluster of our country’s tallest lighthouses protects these shores.
Join Lerro Photography as we photograph some of the most famous lighthouses in the country. During the workshop, participants will learn how to photograph these scenes under several different lighting situations, including sunrise, sunset, and nighttime. The skies will be near moonless, so there will be plenty of time for us to photograph the lighthouses with the Milky Way. We’ll also have artificial lighting available to help light the towers themselves.
The Outer Banks Lighthouse trip will be broken into two parts:
Part One – Cape Hatteras National Seashore – May 16-18, 2023
Cape Hatteras National Seashore boasts several amazing lighthouses including the tallest in the country, Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. During this part of the workshop, we will photograph the following lighthouses in daylight and at night: Cape Hatteras Light, Bodie Island Light, and Roanoke Marshes Light. Each of these lighthouses has a unique flash characteristic and the photographers will learn how to mix the flash pattern with the night sky. We will also have someone pose as a lighthouse keeper for photos.
In addition to the lighthouses, we will photograph a couple of other local maritime locations.
Part Two – Cape Lookout Lighthouse – May 19-21, 2023
Cape Lookout Lighthouse resides on the isolated island of Cape Lookout and has the unique distinction of being the only lighthouse in the U.S. with a diamond-pattern paint scheme. For our photo shoot, the participants will travel by ferry from Harkers Island to Cape Lookout, where we will camp and photograph the lighthouse during our two-night stay. During the night, we will not only photograph the lighthouse but enjoy a bonfire on the beach as well. The ferry will bring us back to the mainland when our workshop is over.
Important: There isn’t a bridge to Cape Lookout. To access the island, you must take a ferry. You have two options: You can take a passenger ferry and hike to the lighthouse and campsite or you can take a small vehicle ferry and drive your 4×4 SUV 12 miles on the sand road to the campsite. The primitive camping site is on the beach and is within 1/3 of a mile from the lighthouse. Bathrooms and drinking water are available near the lighthouse. You must bring your own food and camping equipment.
