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”.

Cancellation Policy


All deposits and any other monies paid are 100% refundable if you choose to cancel a workshop 90 days or more before the start date of the workshop.

If you need to cancel inside the 90-day window, you will have two options:

2)  If you do not want to apply your deposit and other monies paid toward another workshop in the next 12 months, you may request a refund.  Refunds will be provided within 30 days and will be subject to a 25% handling fee to cover our costs. 

Please understand that we are not in the business of taking your money and not delivering workshops.  We want you in the workshops, learning and growing as a photographer and expanding your creativity, because we know that in all likelihood you will keep coming back for more workshops.  This new refund policy is necessary to cover the increased fees that we have to pay when providing refunds. 

 We hope you will understand.  Thank you for your continued loyalty.
