The goal of our workshops is to assist each student learn tools, concepts, techniques, and more. Regardless of the technical instruction, the primary focus of all our workshops is artistry. Whether it be about software, equipment, or photographing on location instruction is always geared to assisting each student achieve their artist goals. Many of our workshops are offered through the Viewpoint Photographic Art Center in Sacramento. Starting in 2018, many of our workshops will include online sessions so you can learn at your own pace and/or interact with us and other students through our online training resources.
