What we're about

Advance Photographic Workshops is a learning group for intermediate and advanced photographers interested in developing their skills and improving their portfolios. Most of our workshops and seminars will be an exciting mix of portraits, street photography to fashion & fine art, as this is more about being a better photographer regardless of the subject matter. In addition to providing an opportunity to shoot, our workshops will also provide some lessons in Photoshop and other post-production software. Our workshops & seminars will take place in 4 to 6 times throughout the year, and will be limited in size from 4 to 12 participants to maximize the learning experience of all!

Who Should Attend?
Whether you're a seasoned photographer looking to freshen up your portfolio, just starting your career in photography, all our workshops and seminars are comfortably structured to suit all levels.

Pre-Requisites Recommended: All Photographers must have complete knowledge of all their digital camera equipment and digital technology, some studio lighting experience is a bonus as well as working with Photoshop to create professional prints.

Same applies to photographers who sign up for workshops who do not show up and have not cancelled well in advance.
