TRAINING CENTER

Photography Workshops

Mountain Lens is an extraordinary setting to experience photography programs that are highly educational and inspirational. Our mission is to provide the finest technical and creative resources for photographers and other artists in a motivating, nurturing and beautiful natural environment. Beyond classes and workshops, we offer personalized services so you can fully render and share your vision and your art. We can help you configure and fine-tune your post-processing software and your display, streamline the way you organize and archive your photos, and customize your digital imaging strategy to reflect your unique vision. And yes — we can create large, beautiful, fine art prints — treasured keepsakes that reflect your expanding skills and  boundless creativity.


Embedded in our twenty-acre mountain setting is a high-tech training room as well as elegant accommodations for out-of-town guests. In addition to a high-tech classroom, the training room now includes a full chef’s kitchen, a beautiful island, and a comfortable, intimate lounge area. The entire space is designed specifically as a “family-style” gathering place where small groups can learn, share, dine, and socialize. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced photographer, and whether your favorite learning style is one-on-one or in small groups, you will be immersed in a beautiful environment in which to learn and master your technical and creative skills. 

And just outside of our comfortable and well-equipped training center are twenty acres that feature ponds, waterfalls, and over a mile of cleared trails and footbridges along meandering creeks, through a forested hillside, and up to a boulder-strewn hilltop. Photo opportunities abound right on the property, with many more in the nearby DuPont State Forest, Pisgah National Forest, and on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

This retreat-style workshop is for those who are tired of rushing to capture moments but feel like something is missing in your work or your approach to finding subjects and expressing your vision. The workshop is focused on helping you let go of “should” and embrace “what if” through a series of creative exercises and assignments. This is your time to slow down, focus, be present, attentive and intentional so you can expand and express your unique vision freely. Based on a 20-acre retreat in Hendersonville, this workshop is ideal for stretching creative boundaries. Limited to six people, this workshop allows you time to release creative seeds and grow as a photographer and visual artist.
