Covid is a global issue and varies, city by city, even day by day, here across North America, but we want you to know that you can enroll in workshops, currently posted through the first few months of 2021 and updated into the year 2021 on a monthly basis. (Founded in 2006, this format of updating new group workshop locales, times and dates have always been handled in this same manner. Should you require a private workshop, our professional photographers who lead group sessions in the community where they live, can accommodate PRIVATE WORKSHOPS on any photo topic and meet up with you and your guests on any day of the week that suits your schedule and locale selected within our active communities.) We can conform to your priorities.
As any workshop you select approaches, please know that we will adhere to the Covid social distancing directives relevant to your local community at that time, as they apply to the coronavirus, allowing you to receive a total refund or the chance to reschedule with no penalty fee no matter how long you require to make your rescheduling decisions. Please contact us toll free, 1 877 372 2231 or email us at DPABooking@DigitalPhotoAcad
IF WORKSHOP DOES RUN, MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING CONFORMS TO LOCAL DIRECTIVES
For the last 9 years, Digital Photo Academy has been based in Manhattan, New York. Certainly the photo ops are unending in that locale, as they are in the 20+ other major U.S. cities where live classes are offered. The slide show above showcases the new Digital Photo Academy headquarters and hopefully you agree that these images reflect a scenic setting for the new DPA offices as well as year round photo ops in any direction one points their lens. (Note the round stone building up on a hill, seen in the slide show during winter and fall season. That is our new headquarters, formerly a gun powder mill that was built in 1828, and owned by the Dupont family who made their fortune on gun powder sold during the Civil War. Across the way is a 41 acre park, donated to the public by the Delano family, (Franklin Delano Roosevelt). It once was the setting for the aqueduct that powered the gun powder mill and the remnants of the stone housing remain, freckled amongst small waterfalls, chimneys and fireplaces, all great for landscape and portrait shoots). In fact, the DPA team is thrilled to work out of the Hudson Valley region. Spend anytime in the area and it becomes clear as to how the late 19th century artists of the Hudson River School became the first coherent movement of American Art.

By the way, as we get settled, expect to see monthly Comp in the Field classes below as well as multi-day workshops. We are excited and hope you are as well. In addition to the DPA property, there are dozens of charming shops, landscape settings, cliffs overlooking the Hudson, Old World architecture, galleries and more that the DPA team has arranged for private access to bring photo hobbyists who hope to add great images to their portfolios.
