THE PREMIER ARTISTIC FLORAL PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP with WORLD CLASS INSTRUCTORS! It takes place only once a year in a different location; in 2020 (April 19 - 21) we will be in the Skagit Valley Tulip fields. Classroom sessions will leave lots of time for us to hone techniques in the field and on stations set up for indoor shooting. ($495) A special 2 day photography excursion to several regional gardens is being offered immediately following (April 22-23). Transportation will be included from the Best Western in Mount Vernon to all gardens and to a new hub closer to the Seattle airport. ($295) $690 for all 5 days, if purchased at the same time. Add-on pre-conference & evening sessions will be open for registration late fall 2019.
Spend time with me in the gardens that Vancouver is so well known for in this floral photography workshop with an emphasis on refining your skills and expanding your artistic potential. Learn new techniques and push those which you already feel comfortable with in the field and then follow up in the classroom as I go through editing demos showing everything from basic to more advanced post processing. I strive to make personal interaction a hallmark of my workshops. We will be shooting at VanDusen Botanical Garden and possibly one other location. The classroom sessions will be held indoors in a nearby conference room to be determined. $325 for 2 full days
Combine seascapes and floral photography in this unique workshop. From the grandeur of the sea stacks to abstracts in the sand, local Bandon photographer Susan Dimock will share techniques that have won her wide acclaim. Then move inland to the world famous Swan Island Dahlia Farm with a day trip to the Portland Rose Garden to continue applying various techniques of artistic floral photography, including editing, with Jackie and Padma Inguva who has become known & admired for her creativity and enthusiasm with high key imagery.
If working one on one is how you learn best, then let's talk about setting up a custom session. We can do individual or a small group (up to 3 photographers of equivalent experience and gear) "workshop" designed to incorporate just what you want to focus on. We will work with your equipment and on your laptop to ensure that you take home lessons that apply directly to you.
Private sessions take place in St. Augustine, Florida. Travel to you so we can work in your area is always an option.
