Went on the Schooner race photo tour yesterday. It was excellent. We left a little after 9 and got back around 3. It was just about the right amount of time. There were enough changes in scenery to allow different photo ops. Dee was great. She was very helpful and made sure that we had a good experience. She was willing to provide additional experience as needed. John, the Captain, was great also. He did a great job of manuvering the boat into great position for photos without interfering with the boats. There were 8 people on the tour which was the max. The number was just right to allow for individual attention and to have enough room to position yourself for photos. The group had to work together to make sure that everyone had space, but that worked fine. I am an intermediate photographer with a lot of questions. Dee did a great job of making people feel comfortable whatever their level of experience. Most of the group were far more advanced than I was, some using 3 cameras at the same time, but it worked fine for everyone.

I appreciate your detailed review. It really helps others to get a "picture" in their mind of what to expect. Our boat captain is the best, along with his comfortable and accommodating boat which is perfect for 8 participants. The race took a new course this year so there were some surprises and last minute adjustments. But it was a beautiful day on the bay. Thank you for coming along and for taking the time to write a review. See you soon!

Every year this tour is always so different from the ones before, and this year the group was eager to get to know each other. The networking and camaraderie was incredible. Thank you for being a part of it and for taking the time to write a review.

Amazing time on the schooner race adventure. Dee was awesome and informative. Definitely a comfortable and friendly atmosphere thanks to the vibe of our great host! I highly recommend these workshops to anyone interesting in taking snaps (or even just to have a killer time)!

Dee is a great teacher and did a nice job working with each guest at their level. She also balanced education with free time to shoot and practice what she discussed with us. It wasn’t all ‘classroom’ but we definitely learned a lot. Plus, the trip to Monhegan was a great trip aside from the photography. I will definitely book another tour with Dee.

I have just returned from the Fall Foliage Western Maine Photo Adventure: Waterfalls and Covered Bridges. It was a wonderful experience. Dee is just great. She makes sure the group is integrated.
Always there to help in your shoots; inquiring what you are trying to achieve and giving you the appropriate advice. My photography definitely improved!
Her tour is not set to a fixed schedule, rather to cover all the best places. She will makes adjustments that consider the weather and foliage that are constantly changing. She also keeps up to the pace of the group and accepts suggestions on places to stop on the way. This makes it a very personalized experience and I was able to enjoy it to its fullest. Finally even if I had not taken any photo, just seeing all the colors was worth it.

This was my third tour with Dee, excellent as usual. She took me to some lovely out-of-the-way harbors and coves in late afternoon, culminating with a spectacular sunset at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse. She also gave helpful guidance about my Sony mirrorless camera and various settings. A great way to spend the day.

I participated in the Pemequid Lighthouse Sunset Photo Tour. My experience was amazing!! The group sizes are small which allows for a lot of one on one attention/teaching for each participant. Throughout the tour, Dee took the time to answer questions, go over camera settings and help with composition. On our way to the lighthouse, we had the opportunity to shoot at four different locations which allowed for a variety of photos and teaching moments. I would highly recommend one of her tours to anyone, regardless of skill level. It was a pleasure spending the day with Dee and I learned so much! I look forward to booking another tour in the future.

I took an online photography class with Dee which I loved and so was excited to take a private, full day photo tour. She did not disappoint! To be able to see some of the gorgeous sights along the Maine coast and at the same time learn how to photograph them like a pro from a pro was invaluable to me.

Not only is Dee charming, engaging and personable, but incredibly talented and knowledgeable. I won’t give anything away but a surprise photo opportunity everyone will get at Pemaquid Lighthouse was a high point.

This was only the third day of a two week Maine trip but I can say with certainty Dee’s photo tour will be one of the best parts.

Dee is simply the best. She has impeccable credentials and is the consummate professional as a photographer. As a faculty member at University of Maine, a credential she did not volunteer, she is skilled in teaching novices like my wife and me about how to take the best possible photographs even with an iPhone. As others have posted, she knows all the hidden spots along the coast that are ideal for photography. We highly recommend this experience. It was a great way to spend a day seeing some of the most beautiful sights in the area.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I do love sharing the most beautiful areas of Mid-Coast Maine as well as my love for photography. And with that, I thank you for choosing Coastal Maine Photo Tours for one of your day-activities while visiting the area. It truly was a joy for me having you aboard and getting to know you both. I thought of you the following days as the weather warm up just in time for your boat trips. Do get in touch if you find yourselves coming back to the area.

Dee is very much a people person and takes the time to get to know each individual not just for their photography skills, but for their interests, hobbies, professions, etc. You are guaranteed a fun day exploring and absorbing nature's beauty all while getting hands on instruction on best photo locations, composition, and camera settings. She caters to both beginner and advanced photographers. The trip is also what you make of it. So prepare, and be ready to get out there with your best shot!
