Also, we usually sell out these workshops through our gallery in Del Mar, N. San Diego county, NOT through MeetUp. Just letting folks know as it might look like there are only a few sign ups. That's not usually the case.

Welcome to the exciting world of Michael Seewald's Photography classes
This is a three day class, where you will learn everything from A-Z, in both the technical AND the compositional department. You can not make award winners without having the full knowledge of these elements, and Michael Seewald, an international award winning artist, will be your guru in attaining all this info
Michael Seewald's compositional 'fun-shops' (yeah, they are not easy, but Michael keeps it light, so it's a lot of fun too, so students call them fun-shops, not 'work'shops) are held about once a month in San Diego County, in Southern California, where he lives with his wife Valerie (ex-collector, now wife). He also holds the 'A-Z' classes up in photogenic locations in central California once or twice a year- in Carmel, Napa and Yosemite.
He leads you step by step through the critical thinking process necessary to 'make', not just take, a photograph. Worth looking at not just for a second or two, but for many seconds. You'll learn the principles to captivate your audience with well thought out images. He'll give you the 'map' you have been missing to make your 'art' pop, to make 'WOWS', like his. It's not just luck, it's skill, and he wants to pass this knowledge to YOU, at very reasonable prices for what you get!
This is something passed down from the masters, 'how to see', 'how to compose', how to 'hold someone's eye in your art', and not even many photo professors understand this well, nor a lot of pros, that's why you just might have one or two in your class, that flew in from N.Y., or San Fran, etc., in the class with you, it's not uncommon!

"... elements of composition being explained and repeated until we finally got it!"

"...The class does a great job at equipping the student with tools to esthetically enhance any photograph, past or future.
I used to think I was a pretty good photographer because I had good technical knowledge of how to take pictures. This class turned on a little "light bulb": I have spent the last 40 years in photography trying to say, "Look what I can do with a camera" rather than concentrating on how to use the picture's strong points to enhance its message."
Jeff Fischbeck, advanced photographer,
San Diego, CA / Class of 8.'03
"...Was I crazy for flying across the country for a weekend course? Very possibly, but I would do it again. I went to learn about composition and I did. I feel grounded now in an area that was a mystery to me. ...I feel I have acquired some of the basic building blocks of good composition. With practice and perseverance I may find it easier to produce more of those “WOW” photos Seewald wants us to make.
Was it worth the trip? An unqualified YES!"

"Oh my goodness...
I knew I had a lot to learn but I never imagined I could learn so much...! I took away so much knowledge and hands on experience from this workshop. I was somewhat nervous about my beginner skill-level but Michael's ability to teach while exercising his natural tendency to turn everything into a joke was great!! I was at ease in no time.
It was a true honor to be taught by someone with Michael's talent and experience. It is obvious that he truly enjoys sharing his God-given talent with others."
