We had a blast at the workshop in June and August 2011, and are doing another one in September 2012. We'll be covering a variety of topics, for example Everyday Studio lighting, HDR photography, painting with light, fill-in flash, portraits, live models and other topics as they come up. Subject to change.

Rick Sammon Workshop in American's Hometown of Plymouth, MA. September 14, 15, and 16th, 2012.

Limited to 15 lucky participants!

Here are some details of our weekend together, the weather may dictate some changes. Rick likes to keep things flexible, the idea is you'll get a lot of one on one, shooting instruction, photo review, and post processing help, while having fun!

Tentative schedule:

Friday, 5:30pm gathering for a friendly welcome dinner (hopefully at a private home in Manomet, Plymouth, on a pond). Bring your camera and flash as there will be a Daylight Fill-in Flash Demo and practice.

Saturday, 8AM until after dinner with a break for lunch. Meet at our classroom for an HDR and Macro demonstration, then a morning shoot, possibly at a dance studio with dancers as models. PM - Another photo shoot, TBA. Then download and work on images, software info and instruction, photo review etc. at the Hilton in our classroom. 5:30pm group dinner if you want to join the fun, possible painting with light photography.

Sunday, Photoshoot, then indoors for Everyday Studio Lighting work, with post processing and feedback after at our classroom in Plymouth. Photo review and slide show. Workshop ends at 4pm.

Schedule subject to change.

Maximum of 15 participants. Fee for the weekend is $350. Fee includes personal and photographic instruction, and guidance. Topics covered will include digital workflow, Lightroom and Photoshop along with photo review. We arrange shooting locations, meeting rooms for post processing and feedback, slideshow. Your part: Transportation, and lodging if needed (we recommend The Radisson Waterfront Hotel or The Hilton Garden Inn as the group hotel). You pay for all your own meals, entrance fees/costs to locations as needed and incidentals. Friday and Saturday night's dinners are around $20 each dinner if we have a private location and you bring your own beverage.

You'll need a camera and laptop computer, PC or Mac and you MUST know how to find your photos on your computer. Some post processing software that connects to Photomatix or Nik HDR is needed for HDR, trial version is fine. Photoshop or Photoshop Elements are encouraged. Details subject to change.
