Fotoscool’s internationally acclaimed photographer and cinematographer Brad Wrobleski, whose work has been featured in the likes of National Geographic and BBC, guides shutterbugs through the ins and outs of professional-level photography in hands-on workshop. The full-day class introduces up to 125 students to digital SLR photography through expert instruction, interactive exercises, and bonding human-camera trust-falls. While flashes are optional, attendees should bring an SLR camera with a mid-range lens, two memory cards, and two batteries. Learn to eschew the camera’s auto-programmed modes for manual settings that facilitate personalized picture-taking without the hassles of monogramming each pixel. A mid-session lunch break serves as a respite for weary trigger fingers.
Founded with the objective of simplifying the often overcomplicated art of digital photography, fotoscool employs a team of seasoned instructors—each a longtime professional with a celebrated career—to guide photography students through seminars and workshops held across the country. Keeping their overarching objective of simple-yet-entertaining instruction in mind, savvy teachers design each session to get participants on their feet with hands-on activities such as interactive exercises, on-location shoots in scenic locales, and bonding human-camera trust falls. In an effort to branch out of the classroom, fotoscool also periodically hosts tours that ferry photo enthusiasts to scenic far-flung locales for extended shooting lectures and on-site experience.
