Workshops

2016 Colorado Photography Workshops

This is your opportunity to learn landscape photography directly from John Fielder in Colorado’s most scenic locales, and from time to time in other states and countries.

Find out how John creates his award-winning images and gain a deeper understanding of the visual aspects of nature. In comprehensive classroom sessions and at field shoots in John’s favorite locations, learn how to spot photo opportunities, experiment with different perspectives, improve compositions and get an insider’s look at professional techniques.  We use digital cameras only and bring our laptop computers for constructive critiques.

Appropriate for practiced beginner and intermediate photographers, John’s Colorado Photography Workshop programs are designed to help students reach at least their next level of ability and enrollment is limited to ensure the highest quality experience. Most workshops are conducted with the assistance of a second professional landscape photographer so that everyone enjoys personal attention and no question is left unanswered.
