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”.
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.
Payment methods accepted: VISA, MASTERCARD, AMERICAN EXPRESS and PAYPAL.
When a workshop is full, you can e-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask Monique to put you on the wait list. If a spot becomes available, you will be contacted as soon as possible to be offered the spot!
If you cancel 60 days or more prior to a workshop’s inception, you will receive a full refund of the deposit paid.
If you cancel 59 days or less prior to a workshop’s inception, no refund(s) will be issued. However:
- If you have paid for the workshop(s) in full, every effort will be made to accommodate your request for a full credit towards another workshop with availability within 12 months of the date of cancellation.
- 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!
