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!

Cancellation Policy – If you are signing up for one of the workshops for the first time, please read the cancellation policy (below) before confirming your registration.
Bring your workshop FEE with you to the workshop and pay before the workshop begins. If you cancel less than 24hrs before the shoot, it is expected you will still pay 50% of the workshop fee. If you register for one of our workshops please note we have a zero tolerance policy for photographers who sign up for the workshop and then do not cancel when their plans change and can't make it. As a photographer if we book a model and she is a no show, we will not book that model again. Same applies to photographers who sign up for workshops who do not show up and have not cancelled well in advance.
