Raise your hand if you’ve paid to attend a photo workshop? Don’t worry. Mine is up there, too. The truth is that investing in a photo workshop can be one of the best investments you can make for yourself. Then again, it can also be one of the worst. The difference largely falls on who is leading the workshop. In some cases, professional photographers can charge a solid chunk of money to attend one of their workshops and, typically, you are paying for that person’s availability, their knowledge, and access to certain locations. When a workshop leader has his or her act together and provides a top-notch experience, the results can be monumental. Similarly, if the workshop leader doesn’t really know what they’re doing, the results can also be… monumental. In both cases, it’s likely that lifelong memories will be formed. One type will be positive and the other… not so much.
That’s why I’m so excited to have professional photographer, workshop instructor, and all around great guy, Nick Page join the show. Aside from being a wonderful landscape and travel photographer, Nick has extensive experience leading workshops all over the world. He understands what is involved with coordinating great photo workshops and providing his clients with an excellent experience. If you’ve ever considered attending a photo workshop, you’ll definitely want to listen to this episode.
