I’ve decided to go “Walkabout” in regard to workshops.
I’m so busy I really don’t have the time to teach even the one or two I’ve been doing over the past few years, so until things change in my life I’m officially on a workshop diet. Good luck out there. If you ARE set on taking a workshop please make sure you find someone who actually TEACHES during the workshop. I know that might sound crazy, but with so many people teaching these days, there are still about the same number of really good instructors. Fame doesn’t necessarily make a fabulous instructor, and after hearing horror story after horror story I know there are a lot of people teaching for reasons that may or may not be on the up and up. Following someone around for a week isn’t a workshop, at least not in my mind. There are some truly career-changing photographers out there who are, from time to time, teaching photography. Find them and they will leave a mark on you that never fades away.
