Two seminars coming up!

Just thought you should know that I’m offering two new seminars in March 2012, in partnership with North Carolina Botanical Gardens in Chapel Hill, NC. Since I know you’ve been dying to meet me in person, this is the best opportunity to do so since my handlers will be absent…

The first is Saturday March 10, from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM, called Nature Photography: Within Your Grasp. I like the timing of this one, since it falls right at the start of National Wildlife Week. Aimed at all ages and skill levels, this seminar is about approaches, goals, and what to expect from nature and wildlife photography. No, two hours isn’t going to gain you mastery, but it does serve to give the right perspective, plus you have the chance to pick my brain if you like. Indoors, no materials necessary, but I’ll send you home with some handouts and reference materials.

The next is Saturday March 24, from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM, called Spring Garden Photography Workshop. This one starts off in the classroom, providing tips on approaches, lighting, framing, making the most of conditions, and working with small subjects. Then we move out into the garden itself to try out our techniques, and I’ll be available for questions and guidance. I do a lot of shooting at NCBG (like the image at left,) and it’s full of opportunities, so this should be a productive seminar.

Both of these are held at North Carolina Botanical Gardens and registration is handled through them – click here for details (on the sidebar.) They are not appearing on the website yet, but I have been told they’re coming out with the next newsletter – in the meantime, you can refer to their PDF linked here (I’m on the second page, third column.) They also have a lot of other offerings, so be sure to check out everything for more interesting things to do. It’s a highly recommended stop when in Chapel Hill. You can also click on the ‘North Carolina Botanical Gardens’ tag below for more posts regarding the garden.

Just in case you’re in the Triangle area of NC and haven’t noticed this, I offer individual photo instruction as well.

Hope to see you there! And there’s more in the works, so watch for further updates as they get pinned down!
