Provincetown is a unique and diverse photographic venue. It’s location at the tip of Cape Cod accounts for its fishing tradition, which continues today, but it was the natural beauty that also made it a magnet for writers and artists dating back to the 1890’s. As a result, there is a mix of beautiful landscapes, fascinating structures and eclectic people.
This workshop shows you the best of what Provincetown has to offer, from the natural to the man-made, at the best times of day for photography. Join us as we explore and capture the classic charm of one of New England's most acclaimed destinations in the off-season, when the streets and beaches are still calm and uncluttered.
