One of the world's most accomplished photographers
is hosting a master class at Anse Chastanet Resort in
St. Lucia for National Geographic Expeditions this year.
Anse Chastanet is the only property on the island of St Lucia offering views of both the Petit and Gros Piton mountains.
Dubbed "Advanced Photography and Lighting Workshop, "
the session, to be held October 10-15, 2017, is designed for
16 advanced photographers and National Geographic Photography Workshop alumni.
Joe McNally, whose acclaimed career includes assignments in more than 50 countries, will lead the classes at the eco-friendly resort.
McNally, who has contributed to National Geographic magazine for more than three decades, has been described by American Photo magazine as "perhaps the most versatile photojournalist working today" and listed as one of their 100 Most Important People in Photography.
McNally will deliver lectures and guide participants through the complexities of advanced photography while taking them through the sprawling Anse Chastanet property, which features a tropical rainforest, an organic farm and jungle bike trails.

National Geographic Expeditions chose Anse Chastanet because it is "blanketed in lush jungles, edged by luminous sandy beaches, and crowned by the staggering twin peaks of its iconic Pitons."
The six-day workshop is designed to ensure participants benefit from daily instruction and critiques of their photographs offered by McNally and a support team of photographers.
Attendees will also learn the fundamentals of artificial lighting and move to advanced techniques to take their skills to the next level, working hands-on with all manner of small flash techniques, from high speed flash to multiple speed light interiors.
