Detroit - The Detroit Boat Club and Belle Isle


Join Digital Photo Academy Instructor Don Werthmann for an Advanced Sunrise Shoot at The Detroit Boat Club and Belle Island on Saturday June 13th. The Detroit Boat Club was founded by oarsman on February 18, 1839, it is the oldest continuous rowing club in the world, the oldest boating club in the United States and the oldest social club in Michigan. In addition to the Boat Club, you will also have the opportunity to shoot at America's largest city-owned island park, Belle Isle. Detroit's city fathers purchased the 983-acre island in 1879 for $200,000, against the opposition of those who thought the price was too high. They elected to retain the name Belle Isle (beautiful island) by which the property was popularly known. In 1883, the designer of New York City's Central Park, Frederick Law Olmstead, created the master plan for Belle Isle's transformation. Belle Isle and the surrounding area conveys a sense of other worldliness that provides a photographer with great creative latitude.
