Cress Photography has recently added a new workshop schedule for late summer 2014 in Landis, North Carolina. The workshops will be held at the Lake Corriher wilderness area which is about a 30 minutes drive north from Charlotte. The wilderness area is made up of two lakes and 5 miles of hiking trails. Both lakes are open to fishing and also has 5 camps sites area are available to reserve. The newly added park store, which is where the workshops will be taught, offers a wide range of live bait, tackle, drinks, and snacks. The store and park hours are 8:00 am to 8:00 pm April through September and 8:00 am to 5:00 pm October through March.
The wilderness area is a wonderful place to photograph with easy access to diverse wildlife. Commonly seen are dragon flies, turtles, heron, geese, ducks, carp, bass, and occasionally beavers, and owls. The park is also located across the street from the South Rowan YMCA and South Rowan Library so if you are into kicking a soccer ball around or grabbing a good book to read you can do these activities as well. The wilderness area management are also working on providing kayak for rent to go out on the lakes. Be sure to register early for the workshops space is limited to 6 people per workshop and they will fill up fast.
