First off, let me say this is just nuts; maybe even insane…
Just within the last couple weeks I was asked if I’d be interested in running a photo workshop in the Eastern Sierra for one of the Bay Area’s local Meetup groups. Timing for organization and dates was short, and the Meetup organizer only had one weekend in October available. Always up for an adventure or an opportunity to teach, I said, “Sure, why not?”
So if you’re interested in spending a few days in the Sierra, I’ll be leading an Autumn Sierra Landscapes workshop for the Bay Area Photography Events Meetup, from Friday, October 18th through Sunday October 20th. The insane part? It’s only $195.00 for the whole weekend. Given the late timing of the season, and the short announcement window, the organizer set the workshop fee. To be honest, I suggested a number of times the price should be higher. In fact, the price is a fraction of what I’d charge for my own group or private workshop. It’s insane, I say; Insane.
We’ll be exploring the areas from Mono Lake to Bishop, with specific locations to be determined based on fall foliage conditions and weather. Needles to say, with this incredible price, the workshop fee doesn’t include lodging, transportation, or meals.
So the question is, are you feeling a little insane and wish to join us? If so, you can check out the Meetup Information page, and if you have questions about logistical aspects, I’m sure the organizer will be happy to answer. If you have any questions regarding equipment, locations, techniques to be covered, etc., let me know and I’ll be happy to answer as best as I can.
And again, just to be completely honest, I think the price is too low. But since this is a Meetup Group Event, what I can also say is that you’d be insane not to recognize what an incredible bargain this is for the value of spending several days out on location learning how to take better photos.
