Beginners’ Photography All-Day Fall Workshop

September 23, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT


Learn Photography Workshop

Beginners’ Photography All-Day Workshop

15 participants maximum to allow the greatest participant-instructor interaction

This is a comprehensive, in-depth, all-day workshop designed to give beginning photographers a lot of individualized, hands-on instruction with a strong focus on having fun the whole day. The individual attention will ensure you get instruction geared to your particular skill level and to what you are interested in photographing. Some of the subjects that will be covered are a review of equipment options; equipment maintenance; how to hold the camera; how to arrange subjects within the frame; various camera modes and settings; how and why to change aperture, shutter speed, and ISO; and an introduction to various resources so you can learn even more after the workshop.

“I went into this workshop with zero experience other than point and shoot on automatic. In just one day, I was able to go from boring, ordinary photos to extraordinary art, all while having fun.” — Kayla F.

“This workshop is a great deal and a fun way to learn about your camera—new or old. You learn one basic function at a time, practice, get instant feedback, and most important, you learn why before moving on to the next lesson. I would highly recommend this workshop as opposed to just reading a book or taking a class. Colby makes it a fun and inspirational day!” — Ann B.

“Colby is an exceptional and unique instructor. He’s professional yet, down to earth. It’s obvious he loves photography and genuinely wants to encourage others.” — Kay M.

  • The workshop is for people who have just gotten a camera or who have had a camera and want to learn the basics
    • Mainly for people with cameras that have an interchangeable lenses. (This isn’t required, but these participants will get the most benefit from the experience.)
