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 April 8, 2018) - Cost: $125.00 each
Dynamic Studio Lighting Techniques - Sunday, April 8th, 2018 - 2 PM to 7 PM - Cost = $125
Location: Southlawn Studios - 657 Southlawn Lane, Rockville MD - (next to Pilot Imaging)
This workshop will include 4 hours of actual shooting with the model, plus extensive instruction on the
various lighting equipment, their use, and setups needed to create stunning portrait, fashion and beauty
images. Also included will be discussions on where to find models, the importance of makeup (either on the model or in the computer, or both), accessories and wardrobe. Flash sync devices will be provided to use with your camera hot shoe that will sync with the studio flash system. We will not stop for eating, but snacks are allowed during the workshop.

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 that is a listing of workshops that I have taught at various times at MPW (2016-2017) and/or at the WSP (1981-2016). 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.
Please contact me directly at don(at)donbeckerphotography.com or by phone at 301-949-0473 (home) to obtain more information. Registration is above using your credit card and the PayPal link.
