TOUR HIGHLIGHTS: Lighthouses * Beaches * Coastal Access * Ocean Views * Seascapes
Take a 4-hour afternoon tour of the most accessible lighthouses of Rhode Island including: Point Judith * Beavertail * Goat Island * Castle Hill. I will guide you to some of the most advantageous vantage points starting at the southern shore of RI, moving up the coast, and over the bridge to Jamestown and Newport. Customize this tour as either: a general photography tour of all 4 locations; or for those more proficient, an in-depth lighthouse photography workshop incorporating long exposures, seascape techniques, and advanced compositions of 2 locations. Late afternoon for optimum light, exact time will depend on time of year.
