What we’ll do

You'll practice seascape photography in the most magical light: around sunrise on the ocean. Meet me at 4 AM at a private dock in Greenport and board my 30-foot sailboat, the Sojourn, where I'll provide safety instructions and the basics of moving on a sailboat with a camera.

What else you should know

It can get quite chilly this early and waves may splash onto the boat - bring waterproof equipment and warm clothes. If you're prone to seasickness, take your meds ahead of time.

What I’ll provide

Snacks
Small sunrise finger food like granola bars, crackers, muffins. I'll be happy to accommodate dietary restriction.
Drinks
Coffee, milk, sugar, water, ice, plus I'll do my best accommodate your softdrink preferences, but no alcohol on board!
Equipment
Life vests, sunscreen

What to bring

Photo equipment + accessories, incl. waterproofing / raingear - Please consider that we will be on the ocean where waves can always splash.
Windproof jacket, warm sweater - early mornings at sea can be chilly, and you want to be able to focus on your camera! There's room in the cabin to to store stuff.
Hat and sunglasses

Where you'll be

We'll take all photos from the Sojourn, a 30-foot sailboat. You can store extra clothes and equipment in her cabin. We'll sail from Greenport to Long Beach Bar Lighthouse, and you'll see why locals call it Bug Lighthouse. Gardiners Bay is dotted with fascinating places like mansion-encrusted Shelter Island; the largest private island in the US, Gardiners Island; and urban legends-prone, off-limits Plum Island.
