Photography Retreats, and 1-on-1
We do not recommend any specific camera manufacture over any other. Our goal is for you to enjoy the camera your currently own and inform you of camera types for your future growth in photography. Instead of sending just pictures to your friends and family. Through our training, your pictures become photographs.
1-on-1 Training Sessions – Designed to improve the areas that you would like to learn. We work with your camera and concentrate on the functions of your camera, not a generic camera. I design each session for your specific needs. Some common subjects that I am asked to help with are:
- White Balance
- Resolution and File Type,
- Use of Filters: Both in Camera and Lens Mounted Filters.
- Connecting Your DSLR to Smartphone or Tablet
- Camera Trigger Systems
Retreats: Self-pace, enjoyable locations to photograph. Non formal instruction. You will have a guide for some locations and others you can go on your own. You will need to know how to set up your camera. Guide will help you if you get stuck on some settings. Retreats are for photographers that have a general knowledge of their camera systems. You can attend what sessions you feel like. No requirements to be at each location of said session. However, the first night is important to attend for this workshop to gain knowledge of settings required to achieve great photographs. A great opportunity to share and learn from each other.
Workshops – Most of instruction is in the field using your equipment and the provided equipment from the workshop instructors. Hands-on in-the-field experiences. One-on-one instruction. Actual taking of photographs so you experience what the workshop is teaching in real time. See the results immediately, then being able to adjust your technique to achieve your goals. Limit six students. Instructors are there to teach; they will not have a camera taking photographs. More info……
Knowledge of your camera: This no retreat! Daily 8-12 hours. During this week-long photography event, there is a combination of classes and workshops. Designed to take a student from level 1 (point and shoot) to level 3 (understanding exposure and your camera capabilities) Most of the training is one-on-one in the field with a maximum number of six students. Actual taking of photographs so you experience what the workshop is teaching in real time.
Classes-Most of instruction in a classroom environment.
