2017 Workshops Schedule

What will you experience in a Bryan F Peterson Photography Workshop?

Whether you choose to participate in a two-day, five-day or a ten-day workshop, all of my workshops place the greatest emphasis on the following: Developing a vision, learning to ‘see’, composition, lens choice, point of view, as well as a full understanding of and knowing the clear difference between a correct exposure and a creatively correct exposure and the absolute ease of knowing when and where to call upon your portable flash. In addition questions such as where do you focus, where do you take your meter reading from, should you shoot RAW or JPEG, what White Balance should you use, why is a tripod necessary, when should you use those extreme ISO’s like 3200 or 6400, is your camera safe in the rain, when should you use the 10-stop ND filter, when should you use the 3-stop graduated filter and much more! We really do cover it all and on a personal and individual need basis!

From macro to telephoto, from wide-angle and fish-eye to the use of your flash, you will go home from each and every workshop with many great images and a feeling of tremendous satisfaction and most of all with the feeling that it really was money well spent! I take your enrollment in my workshops seriously and I promise that you will have a memorable and lasting learning experience! You are not here to watch me walk away from you while I go off and shoot on my own! My job is to be there with you while you shoot, to make suggestions on your lens choice and point of view, to make suggestions on your overall composition, to make suggestions on what exposure will be best. I am here most of all to help you return home with amazing images!

This single philosophy of helping you create amazing images is perhaps why more than 65% of my students have returned to take, on average, three additional workshops, after they take their first one. They really do have the much fun and they really do learn a great deal in the process! Below you can read just a small sampling comments from the many students who have taken a Bryan F Peterson Photo Workshop.

Bryan has authored ten books on photography in nine different languages, including the worldwide best seller “Understanding Exposure”.

Reservations/Payment

A deposit is required to hold your spot on all workshops offered. Your final payment of the “balance due" for every workshop must be paid on or before 60 days prior to the workshop's inception. We will send out reminder notices of your balance due a week before the 60-day mark.

  • If you have paid only a deposit, the deposit will be refunded only if we can fill the spot 30 days prior to the start of the workshop.

“Meet and Greets”

The evening before each workshop, we will meet at the designated location for approximately an hour or so to introduce and share a little bit about ourselves, get acquainted, what equipment we shoot with, workshop expectations and most importantly the proposed agenda for the coming days based on current weather and local events.

I look forward to working with you, re-connecting with old friends and making new ones!

This is a first time offering! A ten-day workshop with a maximum limit of THREE STUDENTS. We will travel throughout the state of Rajasthan for seven days and spend an additional three days in the holiest of cities, Varnassi, on the banks of the Ganges River. All of our extended travel (trips of one hour or more) throughout Rajasthan will be in an air-conditioned van with a hired driver.

This workshop promises to a ‘vagabond’ style workshop where we spend our shooting time in the best light and our travel time when the light is not so good. Over the course of seven days, I expect to travel around Rajasthan, shooting in the Blue City Jodhpur and the Pink City Jaipur, perhaps a trip to Agra, but for sure we will visit many out of the way, off the beaten path locations as well. This will truly be a spontaneous workshop, an impulse lover’s dream!

We will stay in three-four star hotels during the entire trip. All private driver/hired car ground transportation from the workshops inception (February 16th) to its completion (February 26th) is included in your workshop fee, but each student is responsible for their own hotel costs, food costs and for airfare costs from flying from Jodhpur to Varnassi. IF you are wanting as close to a one on one workshop experience as possible, this is it. Workshop ends February 25th, 8pm in Varnasi.

Meet and greet begins February 16th, in the lobby of the Park Plaza Hotel in Jodhpur at 7pm.

This is a repeat of the ‘vagabond workshop’ that we did in Tuscany in 2012. It is also the one of four Vagabond workshops being offered in 2017. (India, Oregon and Cambodia/Vietnam are the others.)

A vagabond workshop means simply that we follow the light and weather within a given area to get the best shots. Tuscany as you may know, has no shortage of quaint villages and unbelievable landscapes and we intend to be shooting in the most ideal light and weather for the full five-day workshop. The workshop begins in Florence, where we will shoot for one full day and night before heading south towards Siena and simply letting the light and scenes before us unfold and respond accordingly. Each night we will be lodging in an as yet unknown location, but rest assured each night you will have a private and clean and comfortable hotel room.

Meet and greet in the lobby of the Hotel Croce di Malta Florence at 7pm May 24th.
