PhotoMidwest presents a four day photography workshop with Cameron Gillie in Door County, one of Wisconsin’s most photogenic places.
What will I learn and experience? It’s four days of exploring scenic Door County, expanding your digital photography skills, and sharing ideas. In addition to demonstrating and discussing photography from a technical standpoint, Cameron will emphasize the creative process throughout the workshop. The workshop aims to inspire everyone to seek their unique vision of the world around us and leave the workshop more motivated and confident to create and share their images.
Where will we photograph? The workshop will visit picturesque towns, beautiful shorelines, lighthouses, and natural places around Door County. Some locations include Cave Point, lighthouses, Peninsula State Park. The workshop consists of photographing on-site, one-on-one help editing on your laptop or device, presentations on the creative process, and sharing photos in a group discussion at the Stone Harbor Resort in Sturgeon Bay.
Who should attend? This workshop is geared toward beginner to intermediate digital photographers. A basic understanding of taking pictures with your DSLR or mirrorless camera is required. Also required is a laptop or device for downloading, simple editing, and sharing images. Cameron is available to provide one-on-one refresher courses in Madison on a date before the workshop if you feel a little rusty or have just bought a new camera.
Additional info: The charming town of Sturgeon Bay is the home base of the workshop. There are many photo opportunities even within walking distance of the resort. The photo discussions and presentations will be at the beautiful Stone Harbor Resort, but there are also other lodging options within a short distance. Lodging, meals, and transportation are not included.
