I teach a variety of workshops in a group setting both on location and at a rental studio, and a listing of my upcoming workshops is below. I also teach all of these subjects, and more, on a personal basis to individuals and small groups, who may learn more easily in that type of environment, or who have special needs or techniques they would like to develop more fully.

Upcoming Workshops: (the next workshop will be on Sunday afternoon, Septmber 27, 2020. See below.)
UpComing Workshop: Ballet Beauty - Sunday afternoon, Sept.27, 2020
from 2:00 pm to 7 pm, at the Studio 76 (12276 Wilkins Ave., Rockville, MD)
The first workshop I am hoping to hold "post-COVID-19" I call “Ballet Beauty”, and I have asked two of our most beautiful ballet dancers to be the models for this workshop. They are Kelly and Brenda, and a photo of each is below. In addition I am including two photos of mine of two other dancers that illustrate the type of photos that I am looking for in this workshop.
For this first workshop, I am planning to limit the number of photographers to 6, in order to facilitate social distancing in the studio and improved photographer access to shooting. I will also have a forehead temperature device to monitor all participants, and they may be required to wear masks (if mandated by the state or county). The models of course will not wear a mask. It is my understanding that groups of 10 people or less are currently allowed in meetings, so including models and me we will stay inside that 10 person limit.
The new photography studio is still not completed from it's remodeling, so the "Ballet Beauty" Workshop is now scheduled for Sunday afternoon, September 27th, from 2-7 PM. The address is 12276 Wilkins Ave., Rockville, MD 20852. We have decided that the name of the new studio will be "Studio 76", incorporating the last two digits of the address. It is located in the lower level of the building, and can be accessed primarily through the door from the large parking lot in the rear of the building. More information will be given to people who sign up for the workshop. Studio 76 will also be available for rental at a very reasonable cost, in case you have a personal photographic project you are interested working on. Contact me for more information about that.
I also have implemented something I call "Workshops on Demand", where an individual or small
group may prefer to have a workshop or instruction in a limited situation. These can be tailor-made to
take place at any location or at any time.
Below is a listing of workshops that I have taught at various times. Most of my workshops will be 5 hours in length and taught on a Sunday afternoon, from 2 PM to 7 PM, although I am available on most days and at most times for "Workshops on Demand" or personal instruction. I have a substantial knowledge of both Lightroom CC and (especially) Photoshop CC for use in my photography, in order to make my images the very best that they can be, and I am available to teach most aspects of digital image modification as well.
I am also available for talks, short workshops or judging for photography organizations in the Metro DC area (including NoVA and Baltimore), including camera clubs and photography competitions. (And elsewhere with travel and accommodations paid.)
Please contact me directly at don(at)donbeckerphotography.com or by phone at 301-949-0473 (home) to obtain more information. Registration for workshops or other payment is above using your credit card and the PayPal link. Or, if preferred, upon request I can send you a PayPal invoice, which you can then use with your credit or debit card to register for any workshop or other instruction.
