Workshops


“More than providing simple answers, my goal is to help participants understand which questions should be asked. Ideally, my workshops will make you become my competitor.”

Comprehensive workshops tailored to cover each aspect of the art and science of digital photography

The renowned Austrian photographer Ernst Haas stated, “You don’t take pictures; the good ones happen to you.” This conviction — that creative photography depends on the photographer’s ability to see, sense and feel the world rather than to take pictures of it – provides the foundation for all of Vincent’s instructional work, including the workshops.

Aimed at intermediate-to-advanced level amateurs and aspiring professionals, Vincent’s workshops are intensive, inspiring and exciting. Vincent’s passion for both the creative and technical aspects of the photographic art provides the driving force behind his workshop sessions. In his words, “you’ll need a vacation after attending one of my workshops.”

Workshops are always tailored to the specific needs of the participants. Because Vincent is convinced that better understanding of technology enables all photographers to produce a final image that represents what he/she felt when firing the shutter, every workshop invariably combines substantial doses of both theory and practical field work.

Rich in information and inspiration, Vincent’s workshops cover all aspects of the photographic art and science — from the theory of composition to using natural and continuous light to image processing and print production.

Prospective workshop participants should have a good understanding of basic camera functions and operation and be somewhat fluent in Photoshop.

Individual Master Classes

Individual Master Classes are personalized, one-on-one photographic tutoring geared toward the individual, specific needs of the student. The teaching agenda of each individual master class is set not solely by Vincent but by Vincent and you. It is an experience where you learn what you want to learn and the focus is on what you want to know to improve your photography, post processing, natural lighting and/or printing skills.


Sample areas of focus:

  • Bokeh, the use of focus and blur
  • Environmental natural light portraiture
  • Natural lighting
  • Black and white conversion approaches
  • Fine art printing (from small printers to big printers)
  • Flower photography
  • ExDR (Extending Dynamic Range though image harvesting)
  • Digital darkroom setup
  • Digital Workflow
  • Maximizing Photoshop for photography

The advantage of one-on-one Master Class training is that you work on the things you feel you need and want at the intensity level, speed and detail level that suits you.

This informal but focused approach to learning is designed to help you learn how to make wiser choices at not only point of capture, but through the entire process from the click of the shutter to the final print.

This is an educational opportunity geared towards working with you to fine tune your vision and create images that better express the voice within you that wants to be heard in every image you create.

Pricing:

  • $950.00 for each day of personal and individual instruction in and around my Los Angeles studio
  • $1,150.00 for each day of personal and individual instruction outside of Los Angeles. Plus a ½ day rate for each travel day & travel expenses)
