Once we have a date and time booked you'll be able to communicate with me on several locations of your choice to photograph. Whether it be early in the morning or the late evening lighting is everything. I want to give you the best possible experience and opportunity to come out of this session with stunning images. I'll be able to discuss via phone call and email a strict itinerary. Upon arrival we'll have plenty of time to go over gear, camera equipment and our technical approach to successfully capturing the scene in front of us. Wherever we photograph we'll explore the nearby area for multiple vantage points. Throughout the workshop I'll be able to help you master your camera as well as find the equipment you'll need to grow. 

What to bring

  1. Your Camera.   You can choose to use any camera you like, but a digital camera with full manual control and interchangeable lenses is highly recommended in order for you to have the best experience I can offer.

  2. Lenses.   There are opportunities to use any and all focal lengths, so bring a good range of them. 

  3. Tripod.   A tripod is essential for low-light stills. One can be provided if you do not own one.

  4. Filters.   Polarizing or neutral density filters can be very useful, but its possible to get good results without them. If you are shooting with Canon, they can be provided if not owned.

  5. Intervalometer.    It is highly recommended though not a necessity to us an intervalometer whenever shooting long exposures. If you do not own one I can certainly provide affordable recommendations.

  6. Misc.    Extra batteries, extra camera memory cards, lens cleaning supplies.

  7. Appropriate clothing.    It can get chilly. Photographing near the river you never know when that tripod is going in, bring shoes you don't mind getting wet. 

Editing session

If you decide to book the additional editing tutorial session we'll be able to take your images from our workshop and edit them through Adobe Lightroom and other editing software. But editing won't be the only thing we'll cover. As well, I'll be able to share with you file organization, memory backups, printmaking, gallery submissions, portfolio building, website creation, and much much more on how to create an income through the camera. We'll be able to meet and edit inside a beautiful luxury conference room at Windsor Oak Hill. Upon your arrival you'll also receive a free 10x15 print of my work. 

What to bring

  1. Your Camera.  Please bring the same Camera and Memory cards from our workshop. 

  2. Laptop.   To take full advantage of learning how to properly organize and back up files you'll need your laptop. 

  3. Notes.    Whether you take notes on your phone or paper you'll be taking back a lot of new information so come prepared. 

Whats included

  1. Editing software.    If you do not own Adobe Lightroom and curious to see how to edit before  purchasing your own version, then it will be provided.

  2. Folder of Notes.    After our workshop I'll put together a personalized folder of links of equipment, contacts,  and any additional information to help grow your photography ventures. 

  3. Coffee & Water.    Windsor Oak Hill is kind enough to have a Starbucks Coffee Maker in the lobby.

  4. Prints & Stickers.    You'll receive a free 10x15 Satin Paper Print of my work and stickers.
