Express Photography Boot Camp outline

Express Photography Boot Camp

By Jeff Cowell – Kansas City Plaza Fountain shot

A Two-Day “express” adventure in Learning and Experiencing Photography.

So read the details carefully!
Lunch and Dinner are provided both days.

This Boot Camp is designed to get you up and running over a 2-day intensive combination of classroom, and hands-on workshop experiences. In this series of classes and workshops you’ll have a real hands-on experience in a variety of settings, along with a total of 12 hours of classroom work on the theories and techniques we’ll use in the field.

  • We will start each day at 9:00 a.m., and break for lunch at noon.
  • Our second session will start at 1:00 p.m. and run through 4:00 p.m., when we will break for dinner.
  • At 5:00 p.m. we’ll regroup and head out for 3 hours hands-on workshop time for you to work on the principals you’ve learned.
  • Please NOTE: this schedule is subject to change.

These Seminars are geared towards providing you with the basics of photography from the ground up as they relate to Digital and Film cameras. Because we’re starting from the ground up doesn’t mean this series is limited to beginners in any way. The amount of knowledge available through these Seminars goes well beyond basic photography and into intermediate and advanced topics. We’ll do our classroom lessons in 3-hour segments with breaks and workshops to help keep everybody sane (ok, this assumes you’re sane when you arrive). Depending on the weather we’ll go out to practice what we’ve learned for 3 hours each evening.

Register Early – Space is limited.

Bring your camera, tripod, flash, reflectors and all those photographic gadgets you’ve been collecting. Please come prepared to take lots of notes in addition to the text book you’ll receive. You’ll also want to bring rain gear and dress in layers when we head out for our field trips. I recommend sturdy shoes (that will protect your feet and ankles on rough terrain), bug spray and maybe even sunscreen. You will be responsible for transporting yourself to the locations where we shoot daily. If the weather is bad, we’ll be doing our shooting in and around the classroom location.
