Avalon Fishing Pier

  080912182548 copy     Avalon Pier Blue     090610173337    Avalon Splash

Photograph silhouettes of fishermen, the waves as they hit the pilings, shells with the reflection of the sunrise on the waters surface, soft ghostlike waves when photographed with long exposures, the sun as it streams through the pilings of the pier, and go on to the pier to photograph fishermen and their catch. Learn how to photograph a sunrise, how to get the best exposure, what white balance to use, and how to make the most of foreground objects. Take a short stroll along the seaside to look for shorebirds, sea oats, and sand fence to photograph.

Join Outer Banks photographer Dan Beauvais or Dan Waters for a Sunrise Photography Workshop at the beautiful Manteo waterfront on Roanoke Island. Capture the incredible colors just before sunrise and witness the stillness as the harbor starts a new day. The waterfront offers the gorgeous bay, a lighthouse, a faithful reproduction of the 16th century ship that brought the first permanent English settlers the the New World, a rustic flag-lined bridge, a waterfront gazebo, a boat building museum, a settlers’museum, quaint buildings and shops, piers, docked boats, marshes, and more than a mile of waterfront boardwalk.

A highlight of this sunrise workshop is photographing Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse with the light still on. The reflections of the light in the water with the sunrise behind it is magical.

Wanchese Harbor

Leona Faith 2948+   090915062153   090915061406   Pier Building, Wanchese

Outer Banks Photo Workshops would like to invite you to attend sunrise photo workshops at Wanchese Harbor. Wanchese is named after the last known ruler of the Native American tribe found on Roanoke Island by the English colonists in the 16th century. Photographic opportunities abound in this quaint working fishing village on the South end of Roanoke Island. There are pelicans, colorful buoys, old fishing trawlers, dilapidated buildings, and the discarded junk that can be found at most fishing villages. The sun comes up over the harbor and through the nets of the fishing trawler’s which makes for some wonderful photographic opportunities. It is also a great place for picking out details, stacked up crab baskets, fishing nets, and colorful buoys.
