$99 for a Basic Hands-on Photography Workshop on Saturday, April 27 ($280 Value)
Workshops run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a one-hour break for lunch and are held in the Edward Gorsuch Commons at the University of Alaska. The internationally acclaimed photographer and cinematographer at fotoscool, Brad Wrobleski, whose clients include National Geographic, joins a skilled team to guide shutterbugs through the ins and outs of their camera in this hands-on workshop. The full-day class teaches students how to make their camera simple to use through expert instruction and interactive exercises. Attendees should bring a DSLR camera with one lens, one memory card, and one battery.
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.
