From the lines of the Peirce-du Pont House—one of the oldest buildings at Longwood—to the soaring grandeur of the Conservatory, unique and beautiful architecture has always been central to the Longwood experience.
Suitable for beginner to intermediate macro photographers, as well as experienced photographers looking for a chance to create images in an exclusive environment, this class begins with an online introduction to macro photography equipment and techniques, followed by a hands-on session in the Conservatory—which begins before Longwood opens to guests.
Join professional photographer Drew Tolbert and spend an exclusive morning in the Gardens capturing the striking architectural beauty found throughout the Gardens. This in-person experience is preceded by an online orientation where you’ll learn top tips to maximize your architectural shots, and is followed by an online critique where you’ll receive feedback and share thoughts about your peers’ work.
