Small-group Macro Workshops

Do you love the hidden details of nature? Would you like to learn how to capture that detail with a camera?

Small-group workshops may be the answer.

No matter what your interest — bugs, flowers, fungi, mosses or lichens — small-group macro workshops will help you learn how to capture the minutiae of nature. Close-up and macro techniques open up a whole new world of photographic exploration. These workshops are available in three or four-hour sessions with no more than 4 people attending. This ensures you will get the attention you require without the cost of individual instruction.
(For groups of 5 or more, please visit the page for Macro Photography Classes)
