"..I thought he did a great job of explaining everything. He was very patient with us and didn't make us feel bad when we didn't know or understand things....
...I went into the class hoping to learn the manual functions of my camera, as I had never learned that. I've tried reading books and it just never "clicked". I really felt that I got it after day one, and after day three I felt completely comfortable. ...I learned a LOT about all the functions on my camera I never used and feel like that was a huge benefit. I loved that we went out and "shot" in the field so that we could really get comfortable with the new ideas and techniques we were learning.
Michael picked beautiful spots to shoot. ... I really look forward to taking more classes ..."

'fun-shops' with Michael Seewald
"These two and three day Carmel photo classes/ workshops (aka 'fun-shops') are not to be missed. They generally fill up fast and provide great images that you will be able sell, if you are wanting to that is, Or to just hang them on your walls for you and your friends to appreciate for the rest of your life- guaranteed." MS
This is one great place to take an outdoor workshop. We not only learn all of the basics of good compositional factors but receive all of knowledge so we can use the technical skills needed to make them as well. We have a chance to apply all of the new knowledge in one of photography's heartlands. Ansel Adams, The Weston's (Edward, Brett and Cole) and a multitude of other serious fine art photographers (artists) have called this unique place home.

We will usually work many of the areas best photogenic spots: Cannery Row; Big Sur; 17 Mile Drive; Fisherman's Wharf (night photography); Point Lobos; the Carmel Mission; the 'Barnyard' mall with it's terraced flower gardens; Carmel Village and quite a few other locations on and off the beaten path.
We will visit many of the photography and painting galleries in Carmel where Michael will point out how the compositional elements were used properly, or as in 90% of the time- improperly, and in no time the students are critiquing the art with that same critical eye.

"...The workshop met my expectations. Delightful. Fun. Entertaining.
This is what I wrote in an email to one of my friends:
"Last weekend I participated in a wonderful Photography workshop (3 days) in and around Carmel. The hands-on work was done at the the most beautiful and inspirational spots in Monterey County; The Mission, Old Town Monterey, Point Lobos, The Barnyard, Carmel by the Sea... What a wonderful place – where better to practice a new way of seeing and exercise my imagination.
The days averaged 9 hours plus gallery walks that followed. ...
The workshop is done in Carmel twice a year by Michael Seewald -(www.Seewald.com) he is funny, inspiring and entertaining as well as a master photographer - all the techie stuff would NOT have been lost on YOU - as for me, well, time will tell, I hope to hang on to some of the techie stuff and at least be able to create some beautiful art, with a camera, when I go to Europe in June. I was there for the inspiration, the brain exercise, to hang out w/ my Mom and Aunt Elise and for the creative stimulation - I was not disappointed and am blessed, really, holy cow, how great is this life!!"
