Workshops and tours are an opportunity to immerse yourself in your photography without the distractions of your regular day to day life. Nobody minds if you need to spend time to get the shot just right. You are among supportive people who share similar goals and you get to do it all in some of the most scenic places in the world.
Since you have an experienced professional photographer at your disposal, workshops are also a great way to learn or refine techniques. You will be encouraged to try something new and to experiment.
You will learn to see like your camera 'sees' and to photograph with the end result in mind; planning out shots while thinking of the post-processing tools you can use to bring your vision to life.
Rod Barbee has been either leading or co-leading photo workshops and tours for 18 years. His goal in teaching has always been to help you improve your photography for a lifetime, not to get you a few pretty shots; pretty shots are easy to get if you have an instructor by your side. His aim is for you to get photographs you will always be proud of.
