The annual Downrigging Ship Illumination has long been a favorite of local and regional photographers. This two-part workshop, taught by photographer David Biehler, will help guide you through the challenging process of capturing ship images after dark. The class includes two hours of classroom instruction on Friday morning and a 90-minute photography session on Saturday evening during the Downrigging Weekend Ship Illumination and Fireworks.

David Biehler is a photographer based here in Chestertown and also in Northern Virginia. His favorite photography locations cover the east coast from the Carolinas to Nova Scotia. Of equal beauty are the mountains and landscape of Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

His images seek to convey the character of Chestertown and other seaside and water oriented communities. The views from the bridge of sunsets and fireworks over the tall ships are unique, especially with the orientation of the moon. These views capture a moment in time that can never be duplicated. All of these images are the way they actually appeared – there are no digital additions to the scene.

David has been photographing seriously for about nine years. He is very active in the photographic community in Virginia having served as the president of the Vienna, Virginia camera club and received their Photographer of the Year award.

He has had his prints on display at Alexandria, Virginia Torpedo Factory Art League where his work was juried-in on numerous times.  He has also had his prints displayed with the Reston League of Artists and at shows on the Eastern Shore and in Pennsylvania. His work is on display in both of these locations.

He has attended workshops at the Maine Photographic Workshops, the Freeman Patterson course in New Brunswick Canada, and the Great Smoky Mountains with Tony Sweet. He has attended photography and digital courses at NOVA.

His images have been published in Natures Best and selected for the Meadowlark Exhibit in Fairfax, Virginia for several years.  One year his early morning image of Wilmer Park was selected for the Landscape Show at Adkins Arboretum.
