My private workshops are a bit different in that there is a limit of 4 students per workshop. I like working one-on-one but I understand the draw of having a couple of friends taking the workshop as well, it makes it cheaper for everyone AND it's a lot of fun!
1 person = $200 half-day / $350 full-day 2 people = $250 half-day / $450 full-day ($125/$225 per person!) 3 people = $300 half-day / $540 full-day ($100/$180 per person!) 4 people = $340 half-day / $600 full-day ($85/$150 per person!) <--The best deal!!
HOW IT WORKS:For landscape workshops, we'll meet around an hour or so before sunrise at a predetermined location. The half-day will end after lunch (usually 1 PM or so) and the full-day will end up to an hour after sunset depending on the light. I take the lead on locations/times and work with you to develop a custom itinerary. Your input is critical. It's your workshop. If there is somewhere you'd like to be at a certain time, we'll make it happen! As far as instruction goes, every workshop is different. I normally have my camera with me to shoot and show particular concepts/ideas, but I don't "shoot" in the traditional sense of the word. I stand next to you, look through your viewfinder, answer questions, review images with you and talk about anything and everything! Workshops are a lot of fun for everyone involved.
