San Diego 3 day, all day, intense yet fun A to Z photography workshop, only $695


Maybe you'll never enter a national competition, but if you do, wouldn't it be nice to know the multitude of compositional elements that will make the judges want to keep admiring your photograph so long that they MUST give it an award, like they did to these two Seewald grads at the San Diego Int'l photo competition!?!

NOTE: The $200 mentioned on price is the deposit amount, full price is $695.

"We get most of our students through advertising them at our gallery in Del Mar, CA (N. San Diego county) NOT through MeetUp so much. Just letting folks know as it might look like there are only a few sign ups when it might almost be sold out. "

Welcome to the exciting world of Michael Seewald's Photography classes

This is a two 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!

"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."
