SOLD OUT

San Diego workshops are coming back for 2018! These workshops have been wildly popular for the past two years.

I'm a San Diego local and that means I know tons of great shooting locations! Join me for a 4-day photo workshop exploring my favorite spots along the coastlines of beautiful San Diego, California. In between our location shoots, we'll be in our private classroom improving our post-processing skills and sharing photos.

Dates: April 13th - 16th, 2018

Limited to 6 Students

Framing Up Sunset Cliffs

WHAT TO EXPECT

San Diego is a jewel of a city with coastlines that cover the spectrum of emotion – dramatic, breathtaking, serene. Join me as we visit some of the best coastal spots San Diego has to offer.  We're up early for sunrises and out late for sunsets. Walking & hiking is light for this workshop. If you can walk on gentle slopes for 10-15 minutes at a clip, you'll do just fine on this workshop. Some of the beaches are accessed by stairs, and rocks we may perch on are large and secure. In between our location shoots, we have a more relaxed pace and have time recharge, grab a meal and process photos. The goal is to capture great photos and have fun... not run ragged. :-) Our workshop concludes with a photo presentation by each participant.

WHAT TO BRING

Participants will receive a complete workshop handbook with details on what gear and clothing to pack. Here's a summary:

  • A camera (of course!). Either a DSLR or Mirrorless is fine. Interchangeable lenses are a plus.
  • A variety of lenses. If you can pack only one, pack a wide angle.
  • A sturdy tripod.
  • A laptop with photo editing software. I use Lightroom and ON1 Photo. Free trial versions are available for both packages.
  • A neutral density and/or polarizing filter.
  • A light jacket or layers of clothing.
  • Sturdy hiking boots and beach shoes (you may choose to get lightly wet during our sunset shoots)
  • An open mind and a can-do attitude!

REGISTRATION, CANCELLATION & LIABILITY

Registration
This workshop size is very limited. I keep my workshop groups small so you get more 1-on-1 time with me. I want you to finish the workshop not only with great photos, but as a better photographer, too!

Workshop tuition is $995. A deposit of $300 reserves your space. Per my workshop cancellation policy, deposits are non-refundable. If you are paying only the deposit, you will be invoiced for the remaining $695 about 90 days prior to the workshop. If you need a payment plan, contact me and we'll make arrangements.

Liability
Participants agree to join the workshop at their own risk and must sign a waiver of liability. By its nature, outdoor landscape photography has inherent risks. I’ll never lead you into an area that is unduly dangerous. If at any time during the workshop you don’t feel comfortable, certainly let me know.

Cancellations
Please review my cancellation policy. This policy covers cancellations from both students and the instructor(s) and refund information.
