World Renowned Nautical Photographer, Onne van der Wal Announces his 2013 Photography Workshops on the Water

Newport, RI (PRWEB) January 23, 2013

Onne van der Wal has been photographing boats and the nautical world for over 25 Years and is famous for having mastered the art of this difficult medium. Despite his notoriety as one of the top marine photographers in the world, van der Wal is known also for his Workshops on the Water and his easy, accessible teaching style wherein he shares tips and tricks in small groups, helping budding photographers get great shots in the challenging marine environment. Scott Cluett, a three-time attendee of the Workshops shares: Not only is Onnes teaching informative, but he is very approachable and easy to understand. Onnes workshops foster a real learning experience with a very personal touch and small groups offer plenty of time and attention for everyone. After four successful years of teaching water based photography workshops, van der Wal announces his 2013 schedule of workshops stretching from the tropical blue waters of the Caribbean to his home waters of Narragansett Bay and Newport, RI.

Van der Wals 2013 Workshop schedule begins with the Heineken St. Maarten Regatta from February 28-March 4th. A very small group of 4-6 advanced photographers will be treated to some of the best grand prix sailboat racing offered in the Caribbean and will be positioned on a chase boat alongside Onne right on the race course to capture the action and adventure on camera. Three full days of shooting as well as evaluative time for reviewing the days work and discussing workflow round out a schedule that includes nightly concerts and parties offered by the regatta organizers.

Back in his home waters of Newport, RI, van der Wals well known Workshop on the Water series will return for Summer 2013 with two intermediate to advanced level classes scheduled aboard the beautifully restored and very stable touring lobster boat, The M/V Gansett. A workshop shooting Narragansett Bays many lighthouses and active local racing scene is scheduled for July 24th for up to 15 photographers, as well as a fall workshop on Saturday September 28th shooting the picturesque 12 Metre North American Championships. Workshops are four hours and include a lobster roll dinner, snacks and cocktails. Onne provides live commentary on a loudspeaker and many excellent photo ops while directing the Captain of the Gansett to his preferred angles, getting close to the action and providing all on board with a unique vantage point. Keeping the groups small ensures personal instruction from Onne on how to meter, frame and set up the shots using your own equipment. He also lends out his Canon L series lenses to those shooting with Canon bodies.


As a six year veteran of the esteemed Canon Explorer of Light program, van der Wal is encouraged to lecture and teach as much as possible and it is a part of the job as Explorer that van der Wal finds most rewarding; Im excited to offer our very well received workshops to as many photographers as possible. Its a part of my job that is very enjoyable: sharing my knowledge, my gear and my enthusiasm for shooting on the water.
