About this Event

Sign-up for the Nov 2019 Badlands Photography Field Workshop!

31 October 2019 | $175.00 while quantities last.

Come out for the day and enhance your observational skills. This unique outdoor event* is a Field Class designed for photographers of all levels. Our playground will be small town Alberta, where derelict structures will be our primary focus. Observation in this sense is extraordinarily vital. It not only allows us to feel an intimate human connection with the people immediately before us but also begs us to think about where we are going next. By class end, you'll have a compelling collection of stunning and melancholy photographs, a storied collection that helps us hear these abandoned places speak.

A class as much about how to find and approach different subjects as about camera settings. You’ll soon realize that the most important part of making pictures -- is thinking. We’ll explore ways to think about various genres and cover techniques for making effective imagery. Like playing the piano, photography is all about practice, practice, practice. There is no substitute for making lots of pictures, and few other things are as much fun.

So where should you start and what should you do? The fact that you're reading this right now is your key to making the photos you've always hoped for. So congratulations. It's time to register.

Rendezvous: Big Valley, AB. We’ll also visit Rowley, and two mystery locations, subject to dry road conditions this time of year. Exact rendezvous location to be disclosed upon registration. A detailed email will be sent to registrants well in advance to the start of the Field Class.

* Your own transportation is required

This Field Class runs rain or shine. Additional info will be supplied upon registration. Participants under the age of 19 must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian.
