PRIVATE & SMALL GROUP WORKSHOPS (up to 3 people)…
100% CUSTOMIZABLE TO YOUR NEEDS:
Whether you’re an absolute beginner seeking to explore the very basics of your camera, or a more seasoned user looking to hone the art of long exposure capture and black & white processing, there is really no better way to learn than to have one-on-one interaction with an instructor. For that, I am here to help! Whatever your goal may be, whatever your experience level is, or however much time you would like to spend, please know that I am at the ready to walk with you along this path.
From field work to post processing—for beginners to advanced—I can guide you through the steps that I take in order to achieve the results you see on my website. For one-on-one sessions, I charge $75/hour. For small groups of 2 to 3 people, I have a reduced rate of $60/hour/person so that each participant is saving money while still maintaining the personalized instruction both in the field and at the computer. I also offer discounts for bulk-time that is paid upfront. This is especially good for those that are just starting out and will be needing 10 hours (or more) of total time in training/instruction. I offer these discounts in 10-hour segments that you can then use at your leisure and scheduling allowance. We can discuss this further upon our initial consultation.
The post processing workshops are done via Zoom.us, unless you are able to come to my home studio in Daniel Island, SC, where we’ll sit side-by-side. Utilizing the screen sharing feature on Zoom allows for a seamless display of what each participant is doing. Furthermore, you can record the session straight to your hard drive for later reference. That said, I also record the session at a much higher resolution and with much better audio and offer these recording, via Dropbox, at $10 extra per hour. This brings your post processing session to $85/hour with included high quality videos that are yours to keep.
If printing and framing is on your list… well, we can do that too! No photograph is 100% complete until there is some sort of physical manifestation of it, so let’s make that happen. There are many options when it comes to printing and framing, and I am here to help you narrow those down and make sense of it all.
These workshops are FULLY customizable regardless of what it is you are seeking. Let’s set up a free consultation so that I may put together a suitable syllabus to fit your needs.
I’m looking forward to customizing your workshop. Cheers!
My group workshops are planned in advance and will generally have 8-10 participants. These workshops are schedule-driven and location-specific in order to best serve the group as a whole. Typically I will start the workshop with a meet-and-greet the night before, and this may contain a small digital presentation of what we’ll be covering… such as long exposure capture and/or black and white processing. The following day we will meet at a set location to begin the field work. Depending on the size of the group, I may have an assistant with me that can help with basic camera set-up and general questions, but I will still be providing the primary guidance and offering the personalized attention that you deserve.
If you are part of a camera club and would like to have a group workshop for your club members, please contact me so that we can discuss pricing and scheduling. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
UPCOMING GROUP WORKSHOP SCHEDULE:
Friday night: (6-8pm)
We will have a ‘Meet and Greet’ along with a short presentation on HOW long exposure photography works.
Saturday (all day):
all about the field work. We will spend many hours outside capturing long exposures, utilizing various filters, and learning to manipulate time in the single image capture.
Sunday (9am to ‘around lunch’):
We will have a post processing session that goes over how I manipulate my long exposure captures in order to obtain the soft etherial look that my images have become known for. Please bring your laptops.
