About My Workshops
I like to make learning fun, which is exactly what do on my photography workshops. We
get up early and stay out late to catch the light. We process our
images on site and have a group slide show at the end of each workshop. If you are new to my workshops, learn a bit about me in this interview.
We grow as photographer and make new friends. We share our images. My students do wonderful work. Here is a link to some of their photographs.
If you have any questions about my workshops, you can always email me. You can also call: 914 271 6132.

Important stuff to know.
1) My workshops are not for beginners. You must know how to use your camera.
2) You must know how to shoot on the Manual Exposure mode.
3) If you have a PC, please know where to find stuff. I am a Mac person. We often, but not always, have PC folks on the workshops who can help you, but I use a Mac. My workshops are photography workshops, not computer workshops.
4) You should have Photomatix Pro and HDR Efex Pro downloaded on your laptop before the workshop. You can get a discount on both programs here.
5) Travel/trip cancellation insurance is recommended, as it is for any trip you would take.
