Charlie Waite Master Class VII

Spring in Charleston, SC - March 20-26, 2015 

When: From Charlie’s opening comments at 5:00 pm on Friday, March 20, through dinner on Thursday, March 26, 2015. This is our first Master Class in the Eastern US!

Where: We will be based in Charleston, SC, and will explore areas within a 1.5 hour drive.

About Charleston: One of the oldest cities in the U.S., Charleston and its surrounding areas offer beautifully manicured plantations with lush gardens, crumbling building ruins, ocean views, a fantastic historical district, avenues of ancient oaks dripping with Spanish moss, cypress swamps, and much more. We’ll be there near the peak of Spring colors with colorful azaleas and other flowers everywhere, which makes Charleston even more of a true photographic paradise. 

Likely Photography Locations: Historic downtown Charleston, Botany Bay Bone Yard Beach skeleton trees, Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, Audubon Swamp Gardens, Middleton Place Plantation, Folly Beach, Angel Oak, Ravenel Bridge, Old Sheldon Church ruins, Tomotley Plantation, Chapel of Ease ruins, and much more. 

Cost: Master Class VII will cost US$1,400. For USA participants, a $500 deposit check should be made out to Tom Vadnais Photography, and sent to Tom Vadnais Photography, 8343 Roswell Road, Suite 370, Atlanta, GA 30350. British Subjects should make payment arrangements (using cheques, of course) directly with Tom Sullam: The $900 balance must then be received by March 1, 2015. Important: Your signed release form (attached) must be received with your deposit check.

Participation: As always, this Master Class is first-come, first-served. Please e-mail Tom Vadnais at to hold your place if you plan to attend. We expect this to fill quickly, so getting your check in right away is critical. Your spot is not reserved until your check is received.

Refund Policy: If you cancel before March 1, 2015, and your spot can be filled, your $500 will be refunded. If you cancel after March 1, 2015, and your spot can be filled, your entire $1,400 will be refunded. If it cannot be filled, no refund can be given.
