4000 old cars & trucks on 34 acres with 6 1/2 miles of trails . . . really!

This is a photographer's dream. It's even overwhelming as you walk in. Some of these cars have been sitting in the woods for over 80 years! You read that right . . . 80 years!!

Join me as I lead you down these amazing trails of nostalgia, rust and decay. One cannot help but wonder about each car and truck as to their heritage, their owners and the sights these old characters experienced during their active lives.

I'll offer you a lot of photographic education in the field like composition, lens selection and depth-of-field. We'll shoot for 4 days and then a couple of evenings in the classroom where I will offer an image critique and then a demonstration in Photoshop as to some-of the tips and techniques I use to enhance my imagery. So bring your computer and your desire to learn post-processing and image enhancing. You will experience lot of intimate instruction and education, both in the field and in the classroom. There is a $25 entrance fee each day, please have cash for this transaction.

All skill levels are encouraged to come and play in this atmosphere beyond words. After the workshop you will see why words can't explain this unusual and unique collection of rust and decomposition. Really!

Here are some of the things I hope to encourage your photographic growth in:


  • Image pre-visualization

  • Composition

  • Exposure

  • Depth of field

  • Lens selection

  • Image prep in Lightroom

  • Image enhancement in Photoshop

  • and so much more . . .

If you'd like to see what you too can create, visit my fine art web site at JeffJohnsonFineArt.com

This workshop is limited to 10 attendees so that I can run around and get with each of you to help and instruct as much as you desire. It is open to all levels of skill & desire so don’t be shy . . .

reserve your spot right now!
