Date: Saturday, November 9th, 2019
Time: 10am to 6pm
Location: 11 Griffin Street, Waterdown, Ontario

Only 15 spots available!

Refreshments and snacks will be provided. Pack your lunch (there are also some nice cafes within short walking distance)! Registration closes on Saturday, November 2nd. Bring your laptop if you want to follow along with the workshop images. There will be an optional take-home assignment for post-workshop critique. Based on pre-workshop participant feedback, I will tweak the workshop so everyone gets the most out of it!

The workshop format will include a lecture in the morning, followed by a short shooting excursion at a close, easy-access outdoor location to practice learned techniques, followed by some image review/editing/critique. If the weather doesn’t play nice on the day of the workshop we will spend more time on technique and editing/reviewing/critiquing images instead of shooting outside.

In order to provide as much value to my workshop participants as possible, I can be contacted at any point after the workshop via email for assistance/feedback. Workshop participants will also receive a 10% printing discount for my printing services until the end of 2019!
