Westmoreland State Park hosts photography workshop April 18-20

(RICHMOND, Va.)-- All the splendor of spring and the natural beauty of Westmoreland State Park will be on display during a nature photography workshop taught by award-winning professional photographers Bill and Linda Lane and sponsored by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation.

This learning vacation is filled with hands-on instruction in the field, demonstrations and plenty of one-on-one assistance. The workshop will be in Westmoreland State Park, April 18-20. The cost of the two-day, weekend workshop includes lodging and meals.

Lodging is in the park’s Potomac River Retreat, overlooking the Potomac River. This Northern Neck park is ideal for a spring workshop, which includes an introduction to close-up photography. An excursion to the gardens of nearby historic Stratford Hall also is planned. The cost is $375 per person.

Bill Lane’s work has been featured in Sierra Club magazine, Virginia Wildlife and Outdoor and Travel Photography. His many awards include the Sierra Club’s prestigious National Photography Contest, and he has participated in several group exhibitions. Lane is a frequent lecturer and photography contest judge.

Space in the workshop is limited, and reservations are required. For more information about the workshops, call Linda Lane at (804) 883-7740. An additional fall nature photography workshop will be held at Grayson Highlands State Park, Oct. 3-5.
