All day printing seminar and workshop @ FreeStyle Photographic.

This will be an all day seminar and printing workshop at Freestyle Photographic supplies in Los Angeles ..

It will cover a variety of papers , printers , and inks,,, and printing techniques

Leading the seminar and workshop will be, Eric Joseph ,

Sr. VP. Business & Product Development - Freestyle Photographic Supplies


Do not miss this,, the date is still being set,,but  It will be on a Saturday in August.

This event will be limited to 25 people , no guests ..

We may do two of these .. depending on attendance,,

FreeStyle ,, for those who have never been there is an amazing place,,, For film and digital supplies they have everything,,,

Great  prices and they have any paper you could ask for ,, Traditional or digital..


Seating is limited,,, so do not RSVP unless you are positive you will attend,,

There is a "0" no show policy in effect for this event.




The first few hours will be a seminar on The World of Inkjet Paper...The Print Matters!" This should start at 10:00 and will run to about 12:30. Then we should break for lunch.

There are a lot of paper choices and you need to understand them.. There are reasons and times to choose one over another..

At 1:30 we can do an inkjet printing workshop so I would encourage folks to bring a flash drive with some image sized to fit on an 8.5x11 sheet of paper at 300 dpi.


We  won't be able to get to everyone but at least we can get to a number of people so that they can see how an image looks different on various types of paper.

The store closes at 4:30 so we should wrap up around 4:00 or so.


I plan on setting up more workshops and lectures ..  And keeping it free or keeping the costs down.. we are not running this as a business or to make a profit..  Breaking even is just fine..


If you are tired of the " Pay to Play" groups  picking your pockets and giving you nothing, in return,, stick around,,




I cant say enough good things about FreeStyle Photographic..

This place is a monument to photography..  I have been doing business with them since the early 80s,, And everytime I go there I find something new ...  our sincere  thanks  to Eric Joseph for doing this ,, and generously giving us his time... And to FreeStyle

    This was a wonderful workshop that I would like to attend again if I could. Thanks Chris for organizing this event, and thank you Eric & Paul for sharing your valuable knowledge & time with us in a very generous way.

    All I can say is WOW! I hope you all had as much fun as I did. You were all fantastic. For those of you who had HDR images, you may have just converted me. I never really saw HDR that I liked before. Too bad a bunch of folks didn't show up. We could have had another 8 - 10 people who were on the waiting list. Next time let's make sure to be considerate of others. Chris, let's check our calendars and set up another day. Maybe we can do it sooner than November. Thank you again Chris for setting this up. You have a great group.

    I just changed my rsvp to no. This way someone else who wants to go and is on the waiting list can attend. I've just got too much going on in my life now. I hope there will be another one soon. Thanks Chris.

    I will give this seminar a five star. I truly enjoyed it, and was a nice way to spend my Saturday. this place is amazing. Eric and Paul thank you for your time explaining things to us. I was not just all about papers but the software, printer and monitor. how all they things play together. I feel sorry for those that did not show up.
    Chris thanks for setting this up. I would like to go again if i may, I missed some of it at the start.

    Will the seminar be offered through Meet Up again later in the coming months? Unfortunately, I haven't been available for the last couple of opportunities.

    Eric's knowledge and enthusiasm was endless!!!
    I am so pleased that I got off the waiting list in time to go to this amazing workshop. I didn't know what to expect. Never knew how different one photo could look on different paper! I am a now a believer on printing my own photos. Thanks Chris for setting this up and to Eric for spending a Saturday sharing his passion for photography. I will never print on Kirkland paper again!!!!

      This is the direction I want to take the group aside from our regular shooting.

    awesome, learned lots, great to see so many papers printed on. Even better to see y own photo printed on several papers to see the difference.

    • Chris F.

      That's what it's all about Peter.. There is no better feeling than seeing your work printed well, framed well and on a wall . People who have never experienced it have no idea what it's like. ..

    The target number for this event was 25 people.. Because if the nature of this event,, I will be removing the " No Shows" from the group.. Thank you for your participation and Thank you to Eric from giving us his time and knowledge.. In November we will be doing this again for those who were on the waiting list,, Or for those who are new to the group.. The ability to print your work is critical to your growth as a photographer,, Your choice of paper and colour profile can be the difference between a successful image and mediocrity .........C

    The workshop on the 10th was EXCELLENT!!! Highly recommended! Pack a lunch or grab something quick nearby. But, the seminar leader brought his lunch so if you have a LOT of questions, you might pick his brain over lunch... that is if he brings it again...

    If you have signed up for the Workshop on the 10th,, please remember to change your RSVP for this date ..

      Chris, did you set up a 2nd workshop like this at a later date? If so, please let me know and I'll attend that one, so that one other person can attend this one. Don't want to change my rsvp until I know for sure that you've set up another workshop at Freestyle. Thanks...

    I have attended one of Eric's presentations in the past. You won't be disappointed. I have not participated in the hands-on print portion of the presentation and would like to be on the waiting list if possible.

    This sounds like a great meetup Chris. Freestyle is a short walk for me. If I can't make this one - due to my health - I'm hoping there's another one, so I'm not going to rsvp yes for this one.
