Our twelth year Workshop Program will offer 16 intense, hands-on, remarkable classes with world-renowned working photographers and educators. Most are three full days beginning on Monday, May 8th plus a 4th day morning session on May 11th.

In most cases, the maximum number of students in a workshop is 16. You will spend three 1/2 days with your fellow students listening, learning, shooting, doing class critiques and comparing notes. Your instructor will work with you, demonstrate his or her methods, explore his or her own work and your own.

We also offer one and two-day workshops during the week, allowing you to choose from special lighting and stills / motion classes in addition to your principal workshop.

Your workshop experience begins with a Meet & Greet on Sunday, May 7th at 4:30pm to meet your instructor, the workshop assistant(s) and the other attendees in your class. It’s a fun time to get to know one another before jumping into the workshop the following day. Immediately following this you’ll be invited to our Opening Reception which runs from 5:00 to 8:00pm with open bar and passed hors d’oeuvres.

Signing up for a workshop is an important decision. Take the time to study the work of the master photographers teaching this year at Connect 2017:
