Join instructor Don Toothaker for a walk in Amesbury, MA. During the walk, we will discuss Subject Development, Image Composition, Exposure, and Architectural Photography. Photographers of all skill levels are welcome! Amesbury is a small, industrial town located along the banks of the historic Merrimack River. Given its access to the water, many industries in the past boomed here, including boat building. We will spend one half of our class at the Lowell Boat House photographing the fine details of building wooden boats. In the second half of our class, we will photograph at the nearby Cider Hill Farm. Amesbury maintains some of its rural character, and Cider Hill Farm is a great destination to work on agricultural subjects.
During the week, we will be exploring the Merrimack River using the museum’s fleet of traditional Banks dories and our ten-oared surf dory 'Provident'. Water safety and rowing instruction will be given at the boat shop by museum staff. Once competently rowing the boats, we will cast off to explore local waterways. Past trips have included the Pow wow River, Maudslay State Park, Indian River and High Rock. Also, exploration of the river islands- Deer, Eagle, Ram and Carr Islands, each having unique and interesting features. Three of these are 'sanctuary islands' with very limited access. We are privileged to be permitted to help maintain these islands for the native flora and fauna. *A miminum of 4 students are required to run this class. Should there be fewer than four students Lowell's Boat Shop reserves the right to cancel the class at any time for a full refund.

Amesbury Massachusetts is a suburban community with an unusual industrial and manufacturing history. Among the most interesting of Amesbury's products were the carriages which did achieve some renown in the area.
Into the 20th century this same company made the transition by converting its production to automobile bodies. Auto body making was a major industry in the town up until the Great Depression of 1929.
Amesbury is located at the crossroads of Interstate 495 and 95 and gives the town a competitive edge for both residential and commercial development.
Amesbury is built up with rich federal period residences which the community carefully preserves as its link to its past.
