Get ready for an intensive weekend of photography as we approach and photograph Point Reyes as if we’ve been assigned to shoot an editorial assignment for a major overseas nature and travel magazine. It will be our job to deliver a finished set of images that will show off the best of what makes Point Reyes such a special place.
This workshop will be a mix of classroom presentation, photography, image review, and critique. It will be fun, but fast-paced. We’ll focus on creative storytelling, while working within a framework of learning and understanding more about composition, natural lighting, exposure, and equipment.
After shooting almost all day Saturday and Sunday morning, we’ll conclude with a review and critique of student images. By the end of the weekend, the goal will be that each photographer has enough images to illustrate an imaginary article, or a small personal souvenir booklet about Point Reyes. This will be an ideal workshop for anyone who ever wished or wondered if they could shoot a real assignment, as well as for people who are thinking what it would be like to be a working professional photographer.
Gary will discuss what it’s like to work in the photo business, and what editors look for when reviewing images. If it sounds challenging, it will be, but that’s half the fun! All skill levels welcome. Accommodations included at the historic Lifeboat Station.
