If you are interested in photography, taking a photo course or participating in a workshop is one of the best ways to see significant improvement in a short period of time. Not only do you get immediate feedback but you will be working with a group of like-minded people who are all striving to improve.
My workshops are directed towards your interests, which is why course and workshops groups are kept to a maximum of 12 participants. As well, from beginner to advanced, there are courses for each level of learning allowing you to opt in where you most feed comfortable. If you are interested in the technical, try the Point & Shoot or DSLR series. Perhaps you are more into the art of photography – try the Fine Art Series where we explore the Art of Photography and Learning to See All Over Again.
To learn about the file management and editing, take the Digital Darkroom – BYOLaptop series. This is offered at two levels – beginners can take the Understanding series as individual sessions where we look at File Management, Picasa, iPhoto and the great online editing app called Picnik. For more advanced photographers, sign up for Photoshop Elements Introductory or Advanced offerings. If there is sufficient interest, I will run a course specifically for Photoshop and/or Lightroom – so email if you are interested!
In the Explore Series, we get our feet wet with combined field and classroom sessions. Friday evening in the Intro Session followed by a Field Session Saturday morning. Saturday afternoon we wrap things up by looking at and discussing images from the morning. The first workshop is Winter Wonderland on January 29th and 30th when the snow will challenge us with exposure and delight us with the great photos possible.
Each 4-seesion course or Explore Series workshop is CDN$140 per person. If you register a week or more in advance, the cost is reduced to CDN$125. All workshops and courses take place in Guelph, Ontario. Please note: this price is exclusive of travel and accommodation costs.
