Description

EXPAND - Heritage Park Photographic Workshop with Scott Dimond and Robert Scott

Due to the overwhelming response to our January workshop, we are offering a second workshop at this location in February 2018!

Gift Certificates: With the holidays approaching, this workshop would make a wonderful gift. If you are purchasing an event pass as a gift, just email us (expandphoto.com@gmail.com) after purchase with the name of the lucky recipient, and we would be glad to email you a personalized gift certificate that you can print.

Details: Come join two of Alberta’s most dedicated and passionate heritage photographers for a rare opportunity to EXPAND your photography at Heritage Park during a time that it is normally closed to the public. As one of an extremely small group of photographers, you will have complete access to photograph the wonderful heritage buildings in the park. This is your opportunity to create unique photos of these buildings in a winter setting.

1:30pm to 7:15pm

It all starts at 1:30pm on Sunday February 25, 2018

Scott & Robert will start the event with a short lecture and slideshow showcasing their Abandoned Alberta work and discussing techniques for photographing old heritage buildings, various gear, exposure concepts, and focusing techniques for effective sunrise/sunset, light painting & night photography.

You will have almost five hours (2:30pm-7:15pm) to explore the park and photograph it at your own pace. Spend a little or a lot of time exploring. It is up to you. We have selected the 1:30pm to 7:15pm time slot because this will give you an opportunity to photograph the park in late afternoon light, at sunset, at twilight and for a short period, in darkness (sunset will be at 6:10pm).

Shortly after sunset, Scott and Robert will be providing an optional demonstration of light painting techniques using one of the buildings in the park. At other times, Scott and Robert will be completely accessible to answer questions, help with composition, etc.

And if you have limited experience with night photography, this will be an excellent opportunity to try a new skill in the safe surroundings with expert instruction. You will be just amazed at how different the same building can look when comparing a photo taken in sunlight to one taken when the only light source is a streetlamp.

Snacks: Coffee, Hot Chocolate and cookies will be provided. It is suggested you bring some bottled water for when you are walking around the park.

Location: Heritage Park, 1900 Heritage Dr SW, Calgary

Workshop Cost: $99/person + eventbrite fee + tax. See Cancellation policy below.

Maximum Participants: 20 (ratio: 10 participants per instructor)

Equipment: DSLR or MILC camera are recommended but all types are welcome. For twilight and night photography, a remote release and tripod are highly recommended.

Confirmation: Passes must be paid in full to be considered held.

Cancellation policy: Passes are non-refundable but are transferable (i.e. if the participant is able to find someone else to take their spot they are welcome to sell/transfer their pass to a new participant. Please, notify us of any transfers in advance of the workshop date as admission will be via registered passholder's name).

Required skill set: The workshop is open to photographers of all levels. Although everyone is welcome, please note that time limitations prevent us from being able to teach basic camera operation.

Access: Please note that as the park will be without its normal staff levels that usually safeguard antiques, access to the inside of heritage buildings will not be possible. This workshop will focus on building exteriors. One building will remain open for the lectures and provide access to washrooms and as a place to warm up if need be.

About Robert Scott:

Robert Scott is a professional landscape photographer based in Calgary, Alberta.

"I fell into photography by accident while exploring abandoned buildings along the secondary highways of southern Alberta. Since then, I've been learning everything I can about photography. I love what I do as it allows me to explore exciting new locations and connect with unique people. Photography has opened up a world of creativity and exploration. I have been fortunate enough to capture the beauty of Iceland, the deserts of Death Valley and the culture of Africa. As a martial arts instructor for over 20 years, I've now been able to converge my passion for instruction into photography workshops and seminars."
