I received a request to post the following.
Boquete Foto Tour and Workshop
April 9th, 2012
1:00 – 5:00PM
Boquete, PanamaOnly $59
Would you spend $59 dollars to learn how to compose and capture thought-provoking, jaw-dropping fotos?
Sure you would!
Are you frustrated and angry with the mediocre shots coming out of your BIG BUCK$ camera gear?
Maybe you’re happy with what you shoot, but you want to achieve a higher level of photo skills?
Or maybe you just want to see and photograph rustic Boquete with some really cool, like-minded individuals from all over the world.
If this sounds like you, my Foto Tour and Workshop has your name on it!
DON’T DELAY – Tour and Workshop limited to 6 attendees!
SPECIAL GUEST APPEARANCE
Legendary motorcycle adventurer, videographer, editor and YouTuber, Ryan Grassley, will be video documenting our April 9th Tour and Workshop, as well as pitching in as a gaffer (lighting assistant).
If you haven’t seen his work, get on over to his YouTube channel “HalfThrottle Motorcycle Adventures“.
My Tour and Workshop is uniquely crafted for the photographer who wants to make better portraits with natural light, natural light with strobes, and other light modifiers.
I will focus on the “street” style of portrait photography and you will learn how to shoot with natural light, flashguns (camera strobes) and various light modifiers; umbrellas, softboxes and reflectors.
After a brief meet and greet at the historic Bistro Boquete Restaurant, we’ll settle into a crash course on alternative shooting. When that’s over, we hit the streets.
We will be shooting in the colorful, rustic downtown area of Boquete, Panama where we can always expect a guest appearance from any one of our stunning male and female models.
This is a fast-paced, hands-on, boots-on-the-ground workshop where you will construct and shoot your lighting set-ups. So don’t expect a classroom environment burdened with mathematical formulas and scientific data.
This is a fun-filled, fast-paced, hands-on event that you won’t soon forget.
So bring your good cheer, your photo gear, your favorite guy or gal and get ready for the time of your life!
Looking forward to seeing you here, mate!
