Gales of November Workshop with Glenn Springer

The Gales of November is a phrase made famous by Gordon Lightfoot in his classic ballad, “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald”. In the song, he says, “The Gales of November Come Early“… he meant early in November but allowing for artistic license, October is early, right?

This is an opportunity for a dozen or so people – like-minded in their fascination with the Canadian wilderness and their desire to capture this splendour photographically – to visit and shoot at some outstanding photo venues on the shores of Lake Superior and the surrounding area.

The goal is to point you in some new directions or reinforce the skills and experience you already have. It’s about mindset and vision. We’ll do some seminars on specific topics but this is really about getting out and making the most of this outstanding Canadian wilderness amongst a dozen of your peers. Ideas abound. Sharing and critiquing and cooperating are the watchwords of the day.

Your direct experience in the workshop starts with your arrival on Thursday afternoon and ends mid-day on Sunday. But many participants use some time before and/or after the weekend to explore adjacent areas: perhaps the Agawa Canyon Tour by rail, or the North channel of Lake Huron, or the rugged wilderness of Northern Ontario.
