Welcome to The Rhinebeck Photography and Art Center – located in the beautiful towns of Rhinebeck and Red Hook, New York, near the majestic Hudson River – just 2 hours from New York City.
We offer a variety of classes designed to help people of all levels who are looking to explore and improve their photography knowledge and skills. With only six students per class, a hands – on approach ensures everyone receives the personal attention needed to grow as photographers.
With nature’s beauty as our backdrop, we take daily photographic excursions to many of the Hudson Valley’s most beautiful estates, gardens and farms. Renowned as the birthplace of the Hudson River School of Painting, many of the most beautiful estates, such as Olana, Wilderstein, Montgomery Place and Vanderbilt Mansion are just a stones throw away. Rhinebeck is also the home of the Dutchess County Fairgrounds and the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome.
All throughout our day, wherever we are – we’ll be looking on a deeper level at our connection to photography and surroundings. With guided instructions and practice we learn to “See the Light” in new ways and notice the nuances of color, composition and the things around us.
Through our view finder light, forms and compositions appear – How this touches us and manifests itself in our photography is magical. It is my goal to help everyone experience these feelings with their art and photography.
All our instructors are award – winning professional photographers and artists who are all eager to teach and share their skills with you.
