Landscape photos are seen everywhere from computer desktops to car advertisements. As beautiful as they are, there is a lot of hard work that is put into capturing the jaw dropping photos and video. From hiking 20 miles in the backcountry, to sleeping with thousands of spiders, it's not an easy process. "If it was easy then everyone would be doing it." 

The goal behind all my workshops is to properly educate creatives who want to take their craft to the top in a professional way. I've made many mistakes early in my career but also learned a lot in the past 15 years. In the workshops, I share these experiences so that those who attend, will learn and not make the same mistakes. Visuals that I use are photo/video samples, real invoices, actual client emails, and physical collateral where they can see my final work. I tell you, I'm on Cloud 9 everytime I'm overseas and I see my work (=

CLASSROOM AGENDA, June 21, 5p - 8p
- How to approach new clients, how to keep client relationships
- Pricing, invoicing, payments, terms and conditions (the things us creatives hate dealing with)
- Business Plan, current and future
- Tips and tricks from 'On Location' to getting the money shot
- Gear evaluation
- Social Media

- Meet at GFP VB, 430am, hit the road (travel included)
- Breakfast (included)
- Arrive at trailhead (park entry included) *TBD
- Next day, hike out and arrive back at GFP VB Sunday evening

How much photo/video experience is needed to attend?
None. I approach everyone on the same playing field. We have professionals to those who got a camera a few weeks ago as a gift. I will be helping everyone during the hike as well.

What camera gear do I need to bring?
Whatever you have in your current lineup. But must haves that should be in your bag is a second memory card, second battery and tripod. In the workshop, you'll learn that it's not about the gear, heck my camera is 6 years old! 

What do I need to pack?
An overnight backcountry load out. Not to be fooled with car camping. We are hiking miles to our campsite, up and down mountains and will be sleeping in the woods. Weather temps *TBD.
