- $69 for a basic hands-on photography workshop (a $280 value)
Workshops run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a one-hour break for lunch. 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. Classes take place roughly every six weeks; visit their website for the latest date.
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.
