Atchafalaya Cajun Country Photographic Adventure

Atchafalaya Cajun Country Photographic Adventure

Atchafalaya Photography Adventure
February 26 – March 1, 2020


Venture with Laurie Klein Workshops into the beauty that is Louisiana’s Atchafalaya Cajun country to photograph natural wonders and remembrances of a time gone by. Regardless of your favorite photographic genre, subjects abound in the beautiful, vast, and mysterious Atchafalaya basin: Spanish moss suspended from ancient oak trees, cypress knees rising from the marshy waters, wildlife of every variety, landscapes, and history. As a special feature, we will have two environmental portraiture sessions with the incredible Nicole Cudzilo surrounded by the majesty of the largest, restored plantation in the South.  From Nottoway Plantation, our home base on the banks of the Mississippi river, we will strike out each day to capture the amazing scenery and culture of the area. Join Laurie Klein and Shelley Vandegrift for this one of a kind photography experience.

Our schedule begins at 9 a.m. on the morning of February 26 and will conclude by 11 a.m. on March 1.
