After years of teaching workshops at schools and institutions across the country we are thrilled to announce the launch of Hessler Creative photography workshops. These workshops will be held on location and in our studio located in Camden, Maine. We cap our classes at ten students allowing more one-on-one time and shoot at destinations further afield than we typically go in our other Maine workshops. 

For our inaugural year, we will only be accepting students we've taught in the past and their friends. If you are interested in taking a workshop with us and haven't been in one of our courses before please feel free to reach out via email. We will accept new students on a case by case basis after a portfolio review. 



October 15th-19th, 2018 

Hessler Studios in Camden, Maine

cool crispness in the air, trees exploding in color, foggy mornings and the amber glow of autumn's waning daylight. The fall landscape in Maine is a photographer's dream come true. Are you ready to explore locations further afield and spend more time making work? This course is for you! 


This workshop will explore the coastlines, salt marshes, forests, blueberry barrens and pastures of Maine. We ask attendees to be prepared for outdoor excursions. There will be time spent hiking and exploring locations further afield than in our Maine Media workshops. Jacob will lead participants on daily outdoor shoots to his favorite locations by car, by lobster boat (weather permitting), ferry boat and by foot. 


Each day we will have a critique of the edited work from the previous day. Additionally, Alissa and Jacob will work with students in the studio to edit, sequence and polish their final collection and each student will receive one-on-informal review time throughout the week if they need technical assistance or creative direction. 


A maximum of 8 hours each day (daily shoots and class time). Shoot and class time are based on weather and light conditions. If the weather is sunny, sunrise and sunset shoot will be schedule. Sunrise is at approximately 6:55am and Sunset is approximately 5:51pm. 


Maximum 10 students, minimum of 4


$1,200 (includes a daily light breakfast)

*Accommodations are not included. Camden has quite a few year-round accommodations at reduced off-season rates and there are some great weeklong rental options on Airbnb. Please feel free to email us to help you find a place to stay.
