This private workshop will consist of two sessions and be limited to 6 participants for personalized one-on-one hands on learning. There is an option for two Wednesday nights (one week apart) and a Thursday night, with second session the following Saturday morning (better option for those coming in town for workshop).

Dates and times are Sat/Sun August 17/18, (Sat 6-9:30pm and Sun 10am-2pm) &

Sat/Sun August 24th/25th, (Sat 6-9:30pm and Sun 10am-2pm)

Day 1: Will consist of 3.5 Hr in field instruction in Downtown Tampa, where I will take you to three iconic spots and show you in a personalized setting, how to shoot in raw format to achieve optimal files for editing and printing. We will focus on techniques and composition. The spots that I'll be taking you to have produced some of my most licensed and printed Tampa photos (this will be valuable in second part). 

Day 2: Will be in a classroom setting for 3.5 hrs where I will show you how to edit the files we created from first session, using editing software. We will go over blending multiple files stacked to create clean and high dynamic range images, ready to export to print, post, or sell. I will show you best practices for editing to print your photos, and we will print two of your edited photos on 13x19" Premium Lustre Fine Art Paper.

As a bonus I will be talking about photography as a business, creating a style and brand, social media, and advice on how to pitch clients, and best practices (creating estimates/invoices/contracts), for creative freelance work. This part of the session may run a bit over 3.5hrs*
