Please RSVP for a workshop (in Rhode Island) here before paying through this shopping cart.

This is an outdoor workshop for people that have taken the 3 Hour Outdoor Introduction to digital photography Workshop (part I) and want to continue learning about photography. This workshop typically runs once per month on Saturday mornings from 9 am-12 am. This workshop also comes with a free download of my photography e-book called "Learn to Create More Than a Snapshot."

Workshop Fee: $99. for first time attendees or $49 for people who have taken Part I. You may pay by credit card when you RSVP on this site or you may pay in cash on the day of the workshop. If you are a previous attendee just RSVP here and then pay on the day of the workshop to get the discount and please bring the coupon I give out or other proof of attendance to get the discounted rate.

Please bring your camera and it's manual along with all of your lenses and accessories. Always check that your batteries are fully charged before coming to the workshop. It's also a good idea to bring a tripod but it's not necessary. For your comfort, it's also a good idea to check the weather forecast for the day of the workshop and to dress accordingly. I have found that it's best to dress warmer than you think you need to with layers that can be removed if it ends up being warmer than you anticipated.

If this workshop doesn't meet your needs I offer private one on one workshops on any subject, at a time that is convenient for both of us. The cost is $75 per hour for a private workshop and you can contact me at for more information or click this link to schedule your appointment.

**This workshop must have at least 4 people registered to run. It may also be rescheduled if the weather forecast calls for rain.
