Class Desription:

Why are we here.

As photographers we all have a common goal. That goal is to give our clients the best we have to offer. We can talk about equipment all day and argue that without owning the latest and greatest we are at a disadvantage. That could not be the furthest from the truth. Although we might be using some state of the art equipment, for this weeks program it really is the last piece of the puzzle.

The most important thing we need to know about our equipment, be it top of the line or middle of the road is: To have a full understanding of its capabilities, limitations and controls. Let's talk more in depth about what makes me tick (it's not pretty). What motivates me. What inspires me. What does it takes to push yourself to a new level that hopefully will set you apart from the others. We will discover that without understanding what makes you tick, equipment is only the mechanical part of photography.

It's more about what's in your heart then how many pixels in your camera.
It's more about your vision then the type of lens you use.
it’s about using all your resources to tell your story.

Slideshows that will touch the heart.. Topaz, Moab give aways. Haiti book giveaway. Product discounts including Spider Belt, Topaz, Fluid Mask.
