This group workshop is limited to just four photographers to ensure each participant has one-on-one time with Steve Mermelstein. (FULLY Private Workshops are also available. )

All our meetups are advertised to several different clubs and web sites. More people have likely signed up for this workshop using those other methods. Those other methods are completely independent of this page/group and are more active. We will automatically close the meetup to new sign ups once it’s actually full. In the rare and unlikely event we don’t fill up, the workshop will still go on as long as there is at least one paid signup.

Workshop departs from Generator, 40 Sears Ln, Burlington, VT 05401. Free parking at Champlain College Miller Center or along Sears Lane.
