Want to find the best light on a workshop? Check out my latest app for your iPhone and iPad running iOS 6 or greater: Rick Sammon's Photo Sundial – the all-in-one app that gives you the sun, the stars, the moon - and much more. Never miss another sunrise or sunset again.
The app is great for on-site shooting, as well as for trip planning. Twenty-five photo tips, too!
Hey, if you find a better priced and more fully-featured sun-finder app, please let me know.
Here's a movie I made on photographing sunrises and sunsets.
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 - in Lightroom and Photoshop - on site and have a group slide show at the end of each workshop.

Important stuff to know.
1) Everyone is welcome! However, you must know how to use your camera.
2) You should know how to shoot on the Manual Exposure mode. I can help you with that.
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) For some workshops, 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.
