Included in your registration fee is instruction and all meals and snacks beginning on the first morning and ending on the evening of day 2. Saturday night is a late one as we will work on shooting in the dark, night sky and general low light/tripod photography.

The intermediate workshop will build on the skills you learned in the intro workshop and focus on more advanced techniques like bracketing, tripod shooting, long exposures, workflow and some editing.  Weather permitting, there will be some night shooting opportunities.

Please bring:

  • Tripods and warm clothing.
  • At least one back-up battery for your camera. (Also, bring the charger)
  • A remote cable release or wireless trigger.

  • Computer pre-loaded with ACDsee Photo Studio Professional 2019
I encourage everyone to have at least one ‘pro’ quality lens. This means that there is a focus distance indicator and a wide aperture such as f2.8 or better.  If you have a laptop computer, please bring it. Part of this event will be the workflow and creating great images.

I know why and when to change my settings
Where did you attend a workshop?: Regina, Saskatchewan

“I know WHY and WHEN to adjust the camera settings!”

For over a year I kept missing out on Greg’s workshop for one reason or another. I was finally able to get in on one this past August and it was SO worth the wait! When I walked into the workshop I had, in frustration, only been using my camera in the fully automatic mode and had given up using any of the other settings. At the workshop I learned what I was doing wrong with my camera and now know how to make adjustments to settings on the camera to get the shot I want, instead of just hoping it would turn out.

Previous to the workshop if I got a good shot it was pure luck, I didn’t know why it worked out or alternatively why it didn’t. Now I feel much more comfortable with my camera and am using it fully manual (no presets for me anymore!). I am able to adjust ISO, aperture, shutter speed, etc and know WHY I’m adjusting them and WHEN to adjust them! I am thrilled with the results I am getting. I no longer feel intimidated by using the manual setting and actually like it more now as I have control over what the camera is doing.

The workshop itself was very enjoyable and had such a relaxed atmosphere to it, open to questions and inquiries. Being able to go out and do some hands on learning during the workshop was great as well because you could have any problems addressed right then and there so you learned instantly by “doing”.

Greg is very passionate about what he does and that comes across. He makes the workshop a lot of fun yet keeps it so informative at the same time. Even the most basic questions from novices like me were answered with patience and a willingness to share his vast knowledge. A bonus is seeing his beautiful work and hearing storm chasing stories!

To wrap it up I got everything I wanted from the workshop and more. I cannot recommend this workshop enough, if you have any desire at all to improve your photography skills or learn more about how your camera works please don’t think twice. Sign up for a workshop now!
