WORKSHOPS

Our Eighth Year Workshop Program will offer 14 intense, hands-on, remarkable classes with world-renowned working photographers and educators. Most are three full days plus a 4th day morning session and begin on April 2. In most cases, the maximum number of students in a workshop is 16. You will spend three 1/2 days with your fellow students listening, learning, shooting and comparing notes. Your instructor will work with you, demonstrate his or her methods, explore his or her own work and your own. We also offer one-day workshops during the week, allowing you to choose from special lighting and stills / motion classes in addition to your principal workshop.

Note: Included in your workshop fee are model fees, transportation costs and a delicious boxed-lunch for each full day of your workshop.


PSPF Workshop Program

If you haven’t already registered for portfolio reviews at the festival, we wanted to draw your attention to the fact that our Portfolio Review program was designed to facilitate portfolio reviews for workshop attendees. Your workshop will conclude on Thursday, May 2nd at 11:00am. This last day is also optional – you can participate in our review program both Thursday, May 2nd and Friday, May 3rd. By design, we have more reviewers scheduled to review those days than earlier in the week in order to accommodate workshop attendees.

Call us now if you wish to add reviews or seminars to your schedule at 1-800 928 8314. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity!

Many of our major SEMINARS are scheduled for Thursday, May 2nd and we repeat many of our important seminars occurring early in the week again on Friday, May 3rd in order to accommodate workshop attendees as well.

Workshop attendees will receive a 20% discount from each full day of their daily registration fee when they register.
