Photo Workshops

Photo workshops include classroom instruction on photography basics followed by getting assignments, heading out and shooting, coming back to process and critique your photos with instructors, and then doing slideshows with your fellow participants. These are great if you need help with the basics: composition; light; and camera settings. One of the best parts is seeing everyone’s work at the end of each day – you can have twenty people photographing the same thing and everyone captures it differently. E.g. show a monument from a different perspective or cut off a model’s head to focus on her outfit or hands. This made me more creative and improved my photography immensely. I’ve done workshops with Mentor Series (which doesn’t seem to be active anymore), Moose Peterson/Joe McNally, National Geographic, Santa Fe Photo Workshops and Brooks Institute, in San Francisco, Vermont, Tuscany, Santa Fe and Santa Barbara. Santa Fe Photo Workshops was probably the best. Mentor Series was the least well organized. A lot depends on the photographers who are leading the workshops
