With this workshop you get it all - an amazing cross section of Savannah and its surrounding areas. With shoots of historic Savannah, beaches, night scenes, cemeteries, parks, and lighthouses, this is one workshop that is sure to please.
Immortalized by the best seller, 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil,' Savannah is an 18th century village that lives resolutely in the present.
The city brings together an exotic history, a sub-tropical natural environment and an obvious desire to keep true to its Southern traditions. Savannah is arguably one of the South's most charming cities with its architectural treasures, luxurious hospitality, low country cuisine and one-of-a-kind lodging. The city offers a smorgasbord of urban as well as natural landscapes. Flower gardens, public parks and centuries old cemeteries punctuate the landscape of Savannah. Everywhere you turn, there is something to photograph.
This workshop begins on Friday at 3 pm and ends Sunday at 3 pm.
Tuition: The $389 full payment will hold your place in the workshop. No refunds after January 30, 2019. (See our Policies page for our refund policy.)

Major car rental companies are available at or near the Savannah Airport. Participants will need to arrange their own transportation to, from, and during the workshop. We strongly recommend that participants share the cost of rental vehicles. We suggest this because some shooting locations on the workshop have very limited space for vehicles and parking can be a bit of a hassel in Savannah.
FOR THIS WORKSHOP:
Accessories - We do not require that you purchase any specific equipment for this workshop. With that said, however, there are a couple of filters that we feel are very important to possess and whose effects cannot be replicated in Photoshop. A circular polarizer is very commonly used in landscape photography. We also recommend that you bring a 3-stop (.9) circular neutral density filter. There are some effects you cannot achieve without having an item such as this to block some light from entering the camera. If you are not familiar with this filter, there will be a discussion as to its uses and effects during the lecture portion of the workshop. To read more about these filters click here or email us with any questions.
WEATHER - This workshop will take you through many shooting environments, so be prepared for whatever the weather may bring. Be sure to have rain gear for you and your camera.Conditions - One or two shoots will have us shooting in sand. Sand can be very damaging to a camera and lenses. Be sure to bring a plastic bag or something similar so you can set your bag down and it not be in the sand. Also, keep in mind that this workshop is in a more populated area than a lot of workshops. Plan your camera bag carefully and only bring what you will keep with you at all times on this shoot. Also, parts of the area can be buggy, so bring bug spray as well. Wearing long sleeves and pants will help, but bring bug spray as well.
