Immersion Photography Workshop

Dawsonville, GA

Immersion Photography Workshop

Photography workshop in the North Georgia Mountains. You will live and breathe photography for 3 days learning basic and advanced skills.

Imagine three days totally immersed in the study of photography with no interruptions.

Imagine finally learning how to use your digital SLR camera by building a foundation of photography skills such as:

  • The exposure triangle
  • Lighting
  • Composition
  • Creative exposure/Manual mode
  • Shooting in RAW
  • Photoshop post-production

Imagine working side-by-side with other like-minded photographers and a veteran photographer to guide you for three full days in the beautiful North Georgia mountains.

Introducing my Ground-Breaking Photography Workshop – Immersion Photography

In the three day workshop you will learn photography by listening, doing and absorbing with repetitive activities. You will be challenged on an hourly basis to use what you have learned and to learn new skills based on what you have previously learned. Each day will consist of hands-on learning in an environment that will vary from sunrise to sunset. Students will have the opportunity to photograph landscapes, waterfalls, flowers, people and wildlife in a structured, non-competitive workshop. My goal is to strengthen and maintain the learning process with a non-stop flow of photography for three full days.

I have been teaching beginner photography classes to students for the past 7 ½ years. Most of my students find my four hour class to be an overload of information and many forget what they have learned within the first month.  That is why I have decided to change gears from teaching a four hour class which only skims the basics of photography to a full three days of immersion.

In order to teach someone how to use their digital SLR camera, I first have to teach photography. This is where camera manuals go wrong. Manuals instruct one which buttons to push but don’t tell you why. Manuals also assume one knows photography.  The Immersion method teaches the basic building blocks of photography on the first day. Once that is understood, I can teach how to use a digital SLR camera, as a tool, to take a picture.
