Why M.A.R.S.?

Because MARS offers hands-on continuing education in photography and is an amazing value. Our goal is to provide students with an outstanding experience in education and friendship, in an intimate, boutique environment.

The school is held for in beautiful Cape May, New Jersey, an historic landmark. Not only are there miles of beautiful beaches, but scores of Victorian homes, and all kinds of places to shoot. Most classes have on-location sessions at the exquisite Bed and Breakfast Inns, the gorgeous churches, and around town on the quaint streets. And because Cape May is located on the peninsula at the southern-most tip of New Jersey, you get the rare opportunity to photograph both sunrise and sunset (conditions permitting).

All students and instructors stay at the full-service Grand Hotel, located directly across from the beach and the Atlantic Ocean. Here, the comfortable and friendly atmosphere promotes making new friends and networking with others who share your passion for photography . Our students come from all over the country. Each person brings their interests and backgrounds to create a diversity and creativity that can only be described as energizing!

Classes are held in the hotel as well. Our classes deliberately have limited enrollment, so you are assured an intimate learning experience . Talking one on one to your instructor, and getting to know your classmates, is incomparable.

Your meals at MARS are beyond compare, both in quantity and quality. MARS provides restaurant quality fare, not cheap cafeteria food. A wide variety of offerings are served at each meal, including vegetarian. Enjoy the panoramic view of the ocean while you share the day with your classmates, new friends and business contacts.

And the best part is MARS is all-inclusive . No worrying about booking a hotel. No worrying about where to eat or making reservations. You don't have to worry about a thing. MARS takes care of everything for you.
