3 Hour Outdoor Introduction to Digital Photography Workshop

Needs a location

$99.00

This is an outdoor workshop for beginners that typically runs twice per month on Sunday mornings from 9 am-12 am. Click See All or this link to see the whole calendar. https://www.meetup.com/Rhode-Island-Photography-Workshops/events/calendar/

I don't run the workshops from December to March because of the extreme weather. Workshops resume in April weather permitting. If you have coupons that are due to expire over this period they will be honored in April.

Workshop Fee: $150 but it's now on sale for $99.

Please bring your camera and it's manual along with all of your lenses and accessories. Always check that your batteries are fully charged before coming to the workshop. It's also a good idea to bring a tripod but it's not necessary. For your comfort, it's also a good idea to check the weather forecast for the day of the workshop and to dress accordingly. I have found that it's best to dress warmer than you think you need to with layers that can be removed if it ends up being warmer than you anticipated.

If this workshop doesn't meet your needs I offer private one on one workshops on any subject, at a time that is convenient for both of us. The cost is $75 per hour for a private workshop and you can contact me at [masked] for more information or click this link to schedule your appointment. https://app.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php?owner=17421753
