Ward Museum of Waterfowl - Art in Nature Photography Festival 2016

In partnership with the Ward Waterfowl Musuem in Salisbury, Maryland, I led a group of nine photographers for a 8-hour workshop on Smith Island, Maryland. We packed as much as we could into the limited timeframe that we had available - wildlife, working watermen and a traditional dinner. 

A special thanks to Missy Evans, Billy Clayton, Mary Ada Marshall and Dwight Marshall for their hospitality and generosity in helping me make this a memorable workshop for the participants. 

Jay – what a day we had on Saturday! Thank you for hosting and leading a great workshop. The pelican colony was quite a sight to behold. The topper was the amazing people we met!
