One Day Workshops

Meet the Bees! - St. Pete FL

Have you ever wondered about how honey is made? Me too! And then I found an amazing small family business that is making it LOCALLY! Join us for a educational photo workshop with Josh Harris, owner of the St. Pete-based Queen and Colony. He will explain the honey-making process at one of his apiaries (bee farms) with photo ops as we learn. 

We will have opportunity to don bee suits and get up close and personal with the pollinators, see how the colony lives inside the bee boxes, ask questions and taste a sample of their delicious honey!

     Recommended Equipment :  A camera with a long telephoto lens: ideally 200mm or greater, a tripod if you have one, closed-toe shoes, a sense of curiousity!

Be Aware: You will be required to sign an agreement at the Bee Farm that states you do not have a known bee-allergy. 

What you will learn: Exposure • Composition • Subject Development • Creative Thinking • Working with Lens Compression • Close Up Photography

One Day Workshops

Holiday Lights at the Florida Botanical Gardens Largo FL

Join us as we photograph a night of lights at the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo FL. During this photo workshop, we will demonstrate how to:

  • adjust camera settings for time exposures,
  • capture holiday lights bokeh
  • use a zooming technique for a creative effect
  • instruction on using Live Composite for Olympus micro-four-thirds camera users. 

  A limited number of loaner Olympus cameras and lenses will be available as well on a first-come, first serve basis. Please include your requests by email at time of ticket purchase.

 Workshop fee includes admission to the Gardens as well as camera instruction and use of loaner equipment. The workshop is expected to run from 5:00pm until 7:00pm. Following the workshop, you are welcome to stay and enjoy the Gardens which are open until 9:30pm.
 Recommended Gear: A camera that allows you to change shutter speeds, a memory card and battery, your “fastest” lens – meaning your lens with the lowest f number, a zoom lens, a tripod if you have one, and comfortable clothing and shoes. Your sense of wonder! If you wish to borrow a camera, you will need to bring a memory card to use. If you don't have an SD memory card, please contact us when you purchase your ticket and at least 48 hours prior to the event and we will make arrangements to bring a card for you to purchase and keep.
