Workshops run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a one-hour break for lunch, and are held in the Bridgeland-Riverside Community Association Community Centre. Fotoscool’s internationally acclaimed photographer and cinematographer Brad Wrobleski, whose clients include National Geographic and BBC, joins a skilled team to guide shutterbugs through the ins and outs of photography in hands-on workshop. The full-day class introduces students to DSLR photography through expert instruction and interactive exercises. Attendees should bring an SLR camera with a midrange 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.
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.
