Beach Blanket Bingo: Wildwood, New Jersey
with Julien McRoberts
June 4 - June 8, 2014

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Julien McRoberts' "Americana" series continues with what just might be the most interesting and “Wildwood” one yet! Wildwood, New Jersey is a resort frozen in time, one that instantly transports you back to the 1950's, when Wildwood was known as "The Las Vegas of the East." It was a performance mecca, drawing the likes of Chubby Checker, The Comets, and more, and hundreds of over-the-top motels sprung up. You could say, "What Ocean Avenue in Miami is to Art Deco, Ocean Avenue in Wildwood is to Mid-Century Modern."

During our workshop our base is the historically registered Caribbean Motel, where we enjoy the retro beach lifestyle while honing our photography skills. Our days are filled with photographing the retro architecture, the gorgeous beaches (complete with quirky fake palm trees), the amusement park along the legendary boardwalk, and the vintage diners—where we also no doubt enjoy some meals. We work on our travel photography skills and our personal styles, and the week includes daily field demonstrations and, if desired, an individual review of your work.

If you are a nostalgia buff craving some fun in the sun this unique photo journey is not to be missed!

$1,095, includes tuition and poolside welcome BBQ dinner. Transportation, lodging, and meals are not included. Nearest airport is Philadelphia, PA; Wildwood is approximately 90 minutes away.
