What we're about

National Photography Workshops is a group that Focuses on Photographing the beauty of our National Parks, State Parks and The Great Lakes.

We specialize on teaching all aspects of photography from the newbie to the Advance Amateur.

You don't need the most expensive equipment, we will show you how to capture great images using your Cellphone, Mirrorless or DSLR camera.

NPW focuses on what creates a great photograph, how to see with a creative eye and how your camera can best capture those special moments.

Thank you,

Tom, Diane,Jamie, Rick, and Roy

How to properly use a 35mm film camera. How to use a hand-held exposure meter. How to study your subject and "make every shot count". How to load film into a developing tank. How to process your film. How to scan and import into a computer for digital prints. Equipment: We will supply all equipment needed if you don't have your own. Plan to meet at our office in Livonia, we will get you set-up with a camera. Show you how to load the film, and head downtown as a group. After shooting for an hour (or until you run out of film) we will head back to the office for lunch (not included) and show you the process of developing your film. Again all supplies are included for this event (cameras are loaners but you can purchase if you like.) THE COST OF THIS WORKSHOP IS $75.00 AND MUST BE PAID BEFORE THE DATE. I HAVE TO KNOW HOW MUCH FILM AND DEVELOPER TO HAVE ON HAND.
