January 28,Sacramento’s Urban Hive: $175
We made room in the last workshop for 25 attendees. When the doors opened, 43 people showed up. Needless to say, we improvised, adapted, and overcame — a little tactic I picked up in the Marine Corps. It was a great time. Our next installment (January 28) is due to be an even richer experience, as we’ll be shooting all day and learning hands-on. Bring your specific questions, needs, and desires. We’ll do everything in our power to send you home a better photographer. Registration information is below. See you there.
All photographs begin with light. It doesn’t matter if it comes from a substation downtown or from the heavens above. We will learn how to see, shape, and direct light into simply beautiful images during this one day training session. This will be a fun and fast paced learning environment, with a heavy emphasis placed on recognizing, understanding, and controlling light.
Location: We have the good fortune of working with the creative team at The Urban Hive http://theurbanhive.com, an industrial space built around collaboration and creative thinking.
Overview: We’ll start with an overview of some photo basics then move right in to making great pictures. I won’t rest until I feel like I have answered all your questions to the best of my ability. And moved your photography skills forward.
About me: I spent thirteen years honing my craft in newspaper newsrooms like The Sacramento Bee, then cut the bowlines and set sail for open seas. Before becoming a photojournalist, I was a sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. After four years of serving beside some of the bravest people I’ve ever met, I traded my weapon for a camera — and learned about myself. Since that time the camera has taken me around the world and into the lives of countless beautiful people. My work has been recognized by organizations like the Associated Press and the National Press Photographers Association. Examples can be found at the links below.
