Upcoming Workshops

 

           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.

          To see some of the photos and my comments from past workshops, visit my "Blog" page by clicking on the Blog heading at the top of this page.


Upcoming Workshops: (the next workshop will be on Sunday afternoon, April 28th, 2019. See below.)

 

The Photography of the Ballet workshop on April 7th was a great success! The dancers were wonderful, and we explored a variety to new and interesting techniques, as well as getting some new and some repeat images of these new dancers. See the article on my Blog to take a look at a few of the images I took at the workshop, including the use of color gels and two different stroboscopic techniques.

 

Workshop: "Fashion Photography" - Sunday afternoon, 2-7 PM, April 28th, 2019

 

I am really excited about this fashion workshop! I have said before that having worked with Terry Tocci previously, I know the outstanding quality of the wardrobe she will be bringing to our workshop. All of the fashion images below are my photos from previous shoots with her, and all the clothes are originals made by her. She promised to send me a ''story board" showing some of the items she will be bringing, so that will be coming a little later. If you have ever wondered what it is like to photograph a real fashion shoot, this is your opportunity! 
 
Note: I have decided that we will NOT have MUAs here for the makeup, having them would just take too much time! In previous fashion shoots that I have done, I have only been able to begin shooting about 2 hours after the start, and had to wait often for an hour or so between wardrobe changes; the MUAs are very good, but are perfectionists. Our models will come with makeup on, and I will have my makeup kit for modifications during the workshop. Both of our models do a GREAT job with their makeup, and their hair as well, and they will both be here for the entire 5 hours of the workshop, so we will have a lot of shooting time.
 
Examples of Terry's creativity are below. Remember, I can only accept 10 participants for these workshops. Several people were disappointed for the ballet workshop after it filled up, so be warned.
 
I look forward to sharing the experience with you!

Other Workshops 

 

          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.
