Hello, my name is Alanna St. Laurent and welcome to my photography workshop and event group on Meetup! Yes, there has been a name change from Discover Your World to Alanna St. Laurent Photo Workshops, but the group outlook and mission is staying pretty much the same.
All types of photographers and skill levels are welcome. Most of the events I hold will take place in the city of Detroit, but will also hold events in the metro Detroit area from time to time. My photography experience is the city, and it's what I love.
The educational opportunities will cover aspects of photography including Architectural, Urban/City, Abandonment (mostly outside of Detroit), Street and Night Photography, and Light Painting. I also am offering photographic tours within and outside Michigan that will focus on both education and experience in the field. I will continue to partner with photographers such as Mike Boening (Street Photography) and Bryan Levy (Light Painting) and others who share similar photographic interests to bring you interesting and fun educational photographic experiences in Detroit.
I do not require a membership fee for this group but do charge for events. You will find free events from time to time, but most of the workshops and events are low-cost and range from 2-4 hours. I am self employed and this is part of how I make a living, and I love what I do and really enjoy helping others learn what they enjoy as well - photography!
Photography workshops will also be offered covering such subjects as photo editing and post-processing (Photoshop, Lightroom, OnOne), HDR (Photomatix), Selling Photos at Art Fairs, Street Photography, Light Painting, and other specialized areas. Have a request or suggestion for a workshop you don't see offered? Contact me and I will be happy to accommodate you.
The overall goal is to help you increase your photography skills, embark on new adventures and above all else have fun! My goal is to find unique and interesting places to visit and shoot, not only within Detroit and Michigan, but in other geographic areas.
