Location & Accommodation
Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Maine
Bar Harbor, Maine is the gateway to Acadia National Park where you will experience spectacular landscapes and photograph everything from oceanside cliffs to mountain forests, sand beaches and hidden gardens. You will stay at the Atlantic Oceanside in Bar Harbor, an oceanside hotel that is set-up as a perfect basecamp for photographers, with first-class conference facilities and accommodation with ocean views. The surrounding area provides even more opportunities to photograph the local fishing community nearby, from lobster fishermen to lobster pots, buoys and nets. This was the location of our very first landscape conference and we are super excited to return to learn, play and be inspired.
“When talking about the magic of Acadia, locals and visitors alike often suggest there is something about this coastal park that grabs a hold of your heart and doesn’t let go.”
— COLLEEN MINIUK, Photographing Acadia National Park
