Photography Workshop

Capturing landscape photos that inspire exploration and ignite memories from prior adventures is an art. An artist must know the tools of the trade in order to create a work of art worthy for your home or office.

What to bring:

  • Camera/lenses
  • Tripod
  • Laptop (for editing photos for the show and tell/photo critique)
