Macro Mania
Brand New!!                           Workshop
 Outer Banks, NC   May 23 - 26, 2016

Macro, macro, macro! And the beach! It doesn't get any better than that!

Join me at the Outer Banks at one of the best times of year. In May the weather is warm and the beaches are empty. This in-depth workshop focused on creativity will cover all aspects of macro, from outdoor subjects like seashells, sea grasses, and bird footprints to working indoors with a huge variety of subjects like flowers, feathers, shells, and other superb macro subjects. Learn how to work with natural light, as well as artificial light.

There will also be time to shoot sunrises and sunsets before and after class.

We will work outdoors in the mornings and late afternoons when the light is soft and beautiful, and indoors at midday when the light is harsher.

This is like no other macro workshop available. You will learn new techniques, and will learn how to unburden yourself from tons of gear. Even if you have taken macro workshops before, this one will open your eyes to new heights of creativity and freedom. Don't miss this great opportunity to expand your macro skills at the beach!

Workshop  -  Longwood Gardens
Kennett Square, PA   June 13 - 16, 2016

This workshop is a perfect blend of shooting, instructional tips, and critiques.

You will learn how to shoot with no artificial backgrounds, and no added light. You will learn how to "see the light," its direction and quality. You will head home with much more confidence in your skills and your creativity. 

Limited to only 15 photographers, this workshop usually fills very fast.
